The newest family picture.
Mary, Joseph, and Lil'Nathan each holding Charlie. Lil'Nathan had to be "tricked" into holding the baby and hasn't done so since... or before, for that matter.
And all the kids together...
Aunt Sara came to visit on Thursday. She brought bubbles for the "big kids" and dinner for everyone. (Sorry, no picture of that. It didn't last long enough!) Last time we saw her (August, peach picking) Joseph wouldn't even talk to her. This time he adored her... she bumped GG out of the limelight for an afternoon.
Joseph giving Mommy a BIG hug.
Charlie found his thumb on Monday, on the way home from a midwife appt.
And, finally, this is what Charlie thought of GG.
This week Nathan has off. Well, first he has to finish his paper for his residency (which is officially over this Tuesday), then he has off. We are going to Lebanon one day to visit my old midwife (and other friends) and to go to LISTEN b/c we are all out of clothes. 'Course, we'll also likely go to King Arthur Flour (I have a little birthday money!), the Co-op (we need yeast), and a few other stops. I hope he finishes the paper tomorrow!
School starts again for the kids tomorrow, too. They've essentially had off for the last three weeks, doing an occasional assignment or two. (It's not bad b/c they were almost finished with most of their subjects and I wasn't ready to start summer vacation in April!) It probably won't be easy to get them back into our routine (which is sure to be Charlie-modified) b/c they've been playing so long, but we need to do it.
They are driving me nuts!
