I was going to say it has been pretty quiet around here but then I realized no it is just really quiet now!  All three boys are home from school sick today.  I think it is just a case of being overtired, at least I pray such is the case!!  Chris will be out of town this week so maybe more work will be accomplished, ha ha!!  I kept thinking I would have more pictures to post of projects or rooms but not much was accomplished decorating wise recently.  Despite the number of hours spent shopping for "accessories" there is little to show which really is a good thing.  Okay, I did buy new chairs, a couple of carpet runners, and wall clings but they are all going back.  Once we got them home we realized they just wouldn't work.  I don't really mind though as it is helping us to determine what we really want, need, and like!!  I'm finding out the likes and dislikes of my children as well as their decorating styles.  All in all, its been a fun process!  I've found out Ian likes bold masculine colors with clean lines.  Sean likes modern with a twist of retro plus geometric shapes and Evan's taste mimics Sean's to a certain degree which works well since they share a room!

Sean and Ian have had a number of track meets recently so they have been keeping pretty busy.  Between new patient physicals, allergy testings, and track meets we have stayed more than occupied.  As you can see Evan and I have enjoyed our own bit of silliness while the others were out and about!  I would love to post some of the other pictures from our afternoons but was kindly asked not to!  So I will honor that request and only post this one.  We were having so much fun between flying paper airplanes, tossing rocks, and just being silly with the camera!

We are also discovering many little surprises around here.  We have a beautiful clematis in our backyard which I can hardly wait to bloom.  Lots of lovely birds... and a nesting mama!  Oh I love doves and she has chosen to build her nest outside our window!  She is such a peaceful little thing diliently sitting on her nest! 

And you should hear the beautiful red wing blackbirds... Pure heaven!  I love watching God's handiwork daily!!

Well I had better get a  move on and call the school to let them know my boys won't be in today....
