Today we finally had a break from the cold, damp weather. It was almost 70 degrees! Mark was out practicing his bass, and so I was home all alone with my three boys this evening. The older two were driving me CRAZY indoors with their seemingly boundless energy, so I banished them to our (tiny) yard.
I think Isaac forgot what warm weather was like. He came outside hesitantly when I told him he didn’t need a jacket. He broke into a huge smile and said, “Wow, it’s room temperature out here!”
I took these photos and then brought Ben out with me to watch them play. I hope one day he’ll be able to run and play with his brothers.
They had so much fun! They raced, they chased each other, they wrestled, they jumped, they brought out plastic weapons and had duels. Then it was bathtime and bedtime, and they promptly fell asleep – they were so tired out.
It’s so wonderful to have little boys, and I am so glad that our fourth child is also a little boy. Of one thing I am certain: by the the time Little Boy #4 is able to run and play, we need to have a bigger yard!
