The many uses of hot water.

November 29, 2006

Micah got out of bed and went to the bathroom. I followed him in to see what he was up to. Before I had a chance to ask he said, "I'm just going to melt the crust off my nose..." I had raised eyebrows, so he continued, "you know, with hot water."

Engineer Dad

Wednesday, November 8, 2006

I'm really sick right now, strep throat again. I always seem to get that, I think it may be time to have my tonsils removed. Tyler took work off to take care of the boys and Lilly so I could take care of myself. I even got to take a nap. I kept waking up because I heard sawing, I was also worried that Ty would forget to pick Micah up from school, anyway, the sawing was Tyler and Jacob cutting up this huge box that our water storage container came in (trying to build up our emergency preparedness and food storage). So, they made this really cool fort type thing. It has 2 chimmneys, a door on one side and windows on all sides, but here is how he did better than I would have, he rigged it so that you can open the windows from inside the box by pulling 3 different pieces of twine. The windows can all close too. So, that's an engineer for you! When Micah got home from school, yes, Tyler did manage to get him on time, why I worry, I don't know. Sometimes I mistakingly think that I'm the only one that can handle things properly when it comes to the kids and the house. So, Micah comes home and is really excited about the box and going on and on about how cool it is, awesome, to be exact. It was really cute to hear the excitement in his voice. I love when they get to do cool stuff with their dad, I wish he could stay home too, sniff sniff.

Micah's 6th birthday

Several people called to let us know they would be coming to Micah's birthday party. He also got a recorded message from Geoffery the Toys R Us giraff. Micah said, "Everyone is calling today, even Geoffery the giraff called!" Then Jacob said, "Maybe he's coming to your party."
