Some more swinging

We’ve been blessed with some fairly decent weather the past few days, so the kids have gotten to enjoy their swingset a little more.  Is it too much to hope that summer might arrive sometime before July?

But first, a picture of the most wonderful dog in the world.  That’s my Porter!  He’s 12 now, but acts like a puppy most of the time.  He’s some kind of weird poodle cross, but when people ask me what he is, I just say he’s a “Benji-dog”.  Everyone seems to know what that is.

Back to the kiddos:

5-12-08-25.jpg Here’s a look that would curdle milk.  He’s in a time-out for sliding down the slide while his sister was still on it, and landing on top of her.  He outweighs her, so it’s not a very nice thing to do.  It wasn’t the first time for that infraction, as you might imagine.  I still cannot comprehend the tortuous machinations of the “little boy brain.”  It must be an absolute labyrinth in there, with many, MANY dead ends.

But, never fear.  Will got plenty of time to play, and even tried out his new life as a dog for awhile.

    Anna’s shoes are on the wrong feet in that slide picture!! I hope Will isn’t rubbing off on her!

    I think Will is a track star as he ran down that hill! I am amazed at his balance running down hill on a slope. He is becoming a great little boy and no longer is a toddler. Has he grown any /gained weight in the last six months? Aunt Cheryl
