Bored in Bed and Other Kid Stuff

"Mom! There are diapers in Devon's crib!"


I jogged down the hall and through the door to find out that Paige was bored in her bed. Or, she just wanted to be a little stinker. She decided to throw all the diapers she could into Devon's crib. It wouldn't be so bad except Devon chews on them. Not exactly the teething toy I was looking for.

The kiddos are a handful, but I have discovered their imagination. Micah decided he wanted to help with vacuuming without the huge noise, so he made his own vacuum. He took one of the legs from his workbench and attached it to a separate container that usually holds bolts and screws. How creative! The funny thing is that even though he doesn't like the noise, he will make sounds while he is "vacuuming."

The children are growing up so fast. Micah is starting summer school next week, and Paige is getting pretty tall.

Micah had his last running class today. The instructors had their students run another mile, and whoever improved their time the most won brand new running shoes. Chris and I had our eyes on the prize. Micah didn't, however, and he decided that he didn't want to put a lot of effort into running today. Granted, he did feel sick and throw up earlier today. Ugh. Poor boy. He didn't improve his time, but he did finish the mile as all of his classmates cheered him on at the end. Chris and I made sure to tell him how proud we were of him for doing well in the class. After all, that's the most important thing: finishing the race. What a trooper!
