Here are some pictures of the boys at our 4th party on Saturday night. We happened to get Ethan's US citizenship papers on Friday. I am assumming that Seth's are on their way.
I also took the kids to the splashpad here in town last week. Ethan sat with me in the shade. As you can tell by the pictures, Seth wasn't so sure about it at first. He would not let Madelyn put him down. He gradually got to where she could walk around holding his hand. Then they walked through the water holding hands, then he finally just let go and walked around alone, going through all the water jets. Looks like we need to go back next week when the girls are home.
Some good friends from church invited us over for supper last night. Aaron was still out of town, so they told me to bring Mom. It was delicious and every vegetable dish, she had made out of her garden. By the time we left at 8pm, both boys were spent. Ethan does not like to go to sleep in someone's arms, even though he screams at times when you put him in bed, he likes to be able to spread out on his belly to sleep. They were both asleep by the time we got a mile down the road. When I got home, I was surprised to see the Montero parked in the yard close to the road. Aaron was walking to the house with his bags he took to TN. Apparently the Montero died in the front yard. He thinks the alternator was going out the last few miles. What a blessing he was able to make it to the yard. So I will be calling a tow truck this morning. Madelyn didn't really want to stay and go back to camp and he said when he left her in TN at the grandparents she was mopey. However, when she called last night, she seemed chipper and excited that she was already feeling better. So, if she doesn't have a fever this morning, Tommy will be taking her back to camp.
