Chase got a haircut....which if you know Chase and haircuts, is a major accomplishment. My mom and I started it one day and got a bunch of the length off, then Spence finished it up a few days later with the buzzers. A team effort and no one got hurt this time :)
I thought this was a cute pic of him reading a book and turning the pages by himself with two hands (bilateral movement is good for fine motor coordination)
Spence practicing the piano. (Usually right around the time I'm trying to put the kids to bed) I had to crop the photo since he was practicing in his underwear :) (Now I know where Hayes gets it from)
A couple of weeks ago, Trish helped Kris and I bottle pickled beets. Why does it look like Trish is doing all of the work? If you've never tried them; they're the best.
Here's the recipe from Farm Journal.
The boys (Britton, Chase and Charlie) cruised the CAT out on the lawn.
Hayes and Parker spun themselves sick on the "toddler" swing.
And they climbed on their favorite toy in the yard...the swamp cooler. Charlie had a run-in with the corner of a dresser earlier in the week.
The Chlarsons came for dinner last weekend. What a mess of kids and food :) That's the way we like it. (from front to back: Parker, Hayes, Brin, Elise, and Chase) (And Doug on the left) That reminds me, I saw Norma at the fair.
