they woke up with a plan

It's been a good, busy week here.  Matt's semester of business classes finally finished, we had 20+ guests for dinner/ dessert in our home, the first days of no class to work on lots of projects around our new place, and a our first house guest who stayed with us for the past 5 days.  All of it has been good, but I think we're all a bit worn out today.  Isaiah and Marian and I are ill:  they slept 5 hour naps today and tossed everything up along the way.  I'll be glad for this business to finish quickly!

We've had some special, simple moments... actually many more than I got pictures of.  I didn't get a single shot of any of our friends here with us!  But here's a few of our sweet moments at play or rest... 


One evening at bedtime, Isaiah and Marian got it in their minds that they needed to build a bunkbed for the babies and they would use leftover cardboard from the castle for it.  In the morning it was the only thing they cared about.... a very important project for them.   But somehow, a tea party got slipped in first.


When Daddy brought home a new roll of packing tape they all constructed this beauty, much to everyone's pleasure.  The babies are sleeping very well, I'm told.  

And even K4 was in the spotlight for a time, receiving expert medical attention and lots of love.

  2. Oh do I love these pictures. They have truly captured everyone's personalities (even Matt's with his nose in a book). K4 is showing his/her presence quite nicely too. Thanks for sharing these...it makes the miles apart so much more bearable. Love to all! Mom aka NaiNai
