Well, on alittle different note. I have been doing some pondering, mostly about my boys...probably because they are the oldest and the youngest. Anyway...anyone who knows me knows that I am a really (really) big sap when it comes to my kids. I am sad because Isaac is growing way too fast...it sounds really (really) cliche...but also true. Just the other day Cory decided he was big enough to ride in the front seat...I say who cares if he is big enough...he still fits in the back. First of all, I found out about it by Isaac saying...Hey mom...I rode in the front seat...You did what? Then Cory with a guilty look (giving Isaac a shut your trap look) Cory says...there are just some things you don't tell Mommy....grrrrr. I lost that battle. (He still fits in the back seat). Then Isaac said I am going hunting with Daddy....Me saying...We'll see about that...obviously if you scroll down you will see who won that battle...the child is 7. I understand that it is only squirrels....but ...hes only 7. True --he may be the size of a small adult, but that is not the point. Just so you know he did not carry or shoot a gun...Cory did...only he didnt shoot it, cause he didnt see anything...so I guess in some small way I kind of won...maybe. Isaac has also started cub scouts in which I am a den mother ( how exactly that came to be DO NOT ask.) This Tuesday he is getting his wolf or bear badge...I am not sure which...some den mother I am. At any rate he is entering the "big kid stage" in which I have to stop little boys in the toy store and say is this cool? Would a little boy like yourself like a toy like this? My sister says that is also not a cool thing to do. And so I mourn the loss of his childhood, and come into the era of what Isaac used to call the "big graders".
Now about Eli. He is so in love with me. He could care less if I just rolled out of bed and have sweats with paint all over them on me, he thinks I am so beautiful...I marvel at the fact that he could want to spend that much time with me...and so I make time just to hold and snuggle him...to laugh with him and play games, to drown him in my kisses, and just feel good that he loves me sooo unconditionally :) I am taking that extra time with him, just enjoying everything about a baby that everyone loves...and praying that God will not let him be the last. Oh well, that is my thoughts for now...I love being a mother...and like I said I can be a real sap when it comes to my kids. I am blessed.

A few of you have sent gifts to Eli and myself. I appreciate you all so much! Please don't think that I forgot about your thoughtfulness, I intend to write the rest of my thank-yous as I am able. I appreciate your patience as well as your thoughtfulness :)
Cory has started up baseball. Practice is everyday after school and on Saturdays. Games seem to be every night these days. Usually I do not see Cory until 7:00 pm, or sometimes 9:00pm. This has been hard for me, as I need a break now and then. A light is at the end of the tunnel though. With this beautiful Spring weather I shall get to go to the home games and let the older kids attack the dirt pile in the far field...while I snuggle Eli. As long as I do not feel cooped up inside, then I will survive!
Yesterday the girls and I were invited over to a friends house that we know from Preschool. We had a BBQ, and then sat in the gazebo while the kids played in the yard. It was such a fabulous time. She had such a beautiful home...a giant log home, and beautifully landscaped! I scoped it out for good ideas for the Valentine abode.
Well, I hope everyone is having a great week and enjoying the fabulous weather we are having...see you all later!

Happy Easter 2007
I love Eli in blue...especially navy. For now he has blue eyes...just like Esther did. I wonder if they will turn brown like hers? Such a handsome little man.
Esther is in love. Plain and simple--head over heels in love with her little brother. One can't hold this little child in peace without a little someone asking for a turn...or giving advice. Esther is QUITE maternal...an instinctive nurturer...and I hope that her bond with him lasts and lasts. I also hope to help her hone her skills...she is such a little homemaker....I love it!
