Help! White mildew??

September 26th, 2012

Our zucchini and pumpkins are doing great, except they’re growing this white mildew on the leaves. I sprayed diluted milk on them, but it doesn’t seem to be helping. Has anyone had success with a homemade fungicide?

Paying their first tithes

September 23rd, 2012

Two sweet boys paid their first tithes today and, man, it was awesome.

Brother’s been wanting to pay it for weeks, but he’s been sick. Now that the day finally came, he wanted to fill it out with Daddy and then he held onto his envelope and slip almost the whole time until he finally gave it to the Bishop after Sacrament Meeting. He had a huge smile on his face and excitedly told everyone he met, “I’m paying a whole DOLLAR for tithing!!” as he showed them his envelope and yellow slip. People just lit up and smiled right back at him. It was just a treat- totally made our day at church!

Boots sat down to fill out his slip with Daddy, too, and he insisted on paying ALL of the money in his money jar to tithing- even his spending money and college/mission savings. What a sweetheart, I thought my heart was going burst. He had his serious look on as he bounce-walked into church with his envelope and anytime someone mentioned his tithing. After he gave it to the Bishop , he pumped the Bishop’s hand in a fierce handshake and then walked off to nursery (still wearing his serious face).

The Bishop was so great and I thought what an honor it must be to accept a child’s first tithing envelope ever. Brother did get a little confused and thought he was giving it to President Monson, but after Daddy explained it, he was okay again.

Great job, boys! You two are such good people and I loved being able to watch you today.

Mommy’s therapy! (by Sir Baby)

September 10th, 2012

002

Hi everyone! Guess what? This is where Mommy gets physical therapy now. We’ve been here so much, it’s like a second home.

004

We settle in and know just what to do: the older boys watch an animated Disney film while I eat and play. Mommy doesn’t bring us with her much anymore because it’s easier for her to work without us.

007

But when we do come, boy are we all excited!

And then, after sitting so well for about 2 hours…

026

… We RACE down the hall!

027

And rush to find the fishies!

047

Can you believe that?

059

There are two big fish in there! We named them Mommy and Baby.

066

After that my brothers run down the hall.

073

And back up.

076

And down again.

082

Then they go visit the concrete stairs.

084

And after that, it’s time to load up!

085

And there you have it! Another day at the therapist with Mommy!

086

I’m off now! See you later, alligator.
