Deep are the thoughts of a child: Quiet them.
Sharp is the grief of a child: Take it from him.
Soft is the heart of a child: Do not harden it.

The summer days have been hot...and the humidity just makes you sweaty and sticky. Sometimes it can be pretty miserable. But when you've got a pool, a hose, and a couple of squirt guns, don't count on the sun to ruin our party!! Kait and Conor spent many summer hours hosing themselves...each other...and even me...down with the hose. It was always a blast, and always kept us cool.
I've been doing what I do best...procrastinating. I have put off writing on my blog over and over and over. I don't know why, 'cause it's not that hard. Things have been busy though...Summer ending, school starting, Friends, adventures to the city, a trip back home, sleep, church...I suppose I could use those things as an excuse... But I guess it all just comes down to being lazy; and that I am. I will do my best to stay on top of updating, because I know I will regret it if I don't. But for now, This is me catching up on the happenings of the past little while.

Trying to entertain a 3 and 4 year old for 13 hours each day isn't exactly the easiest thing in the world...but I don't mind the challenge most the time. :) To satisfy our artsy side, we usually color and draw pictures that I am convinced will one day be a part of a world famous museum and will be sold for millions...to satisfy our imaginative side, we play super heroes and save the entire city from evil villains...and our chef/gourmet cooking side? Oh that's easy, we just put some mud in a cup, add a worm or two, and if we're in the mood, add some whip cream to top it all off! ....ok, so not really...but it looks like it. :) We made mud cups with pudding, crushed oreos, gummy worms, and some whip cream. Despite the very close resemblance of real mud, they were pretty delicious!

This is the kind of emergency surgery I can handle....Spiderman takes a serious fall and is rushed to the ER. Conor listens to his heart while Kaitlin prepares to take his temperature. Conor turns to me and says: "Dr. Jenna, hurry! or he's not gonna make it!" I quickly assist him...handing him the tools he needs in order to complete the surgery. Conor made sure to be in the right clothes (finding a big hoodie in my closet to use as his 'white coat') It was an intense surgery, but after giving spiderman all the necessary treatment, and giving him some medicine, we covered him with a blanket, and we knew everything would be ok. Spiderman made a quick recovery and seems to being doing fine....especially since he was up and playing with us again nearly 5 minutes after surgery...it's amazing what a few plastic medical tools, caring doctors, and some medicine can do for a super hero...he'll be back on the streets saving the world from evil villans in no time.
