Yay, It's Raining!!

I'm so thankful for the rain today. We haven't been home a single day the last week except to sleep. Had a garage sale with Lori, Janell and Char Thur-Sat. My goal was to make enough money to buy the kids a bunk bed and I did it! Well, enough for the bed and the sheets but not the mattresses. Nolan keeps telling Avrie he gets the top. She won't be ready for the bottom bunk for almost a year though so he can sleep on whichever he wants.

Made fresh bread and salsa this morning. Doing never ending laundry and dishes as well. And I'm reading The Kite Runner and can't put it down. It's been on my reading list for ages and I'm finally there and it's unbelievable. The best book I've read so far this year and I'm only on the 6th chapter.

I told Nolan this morning that I don't want him to grow up...that I want him to stay my little boy forever and he said "no, I want to grow up. I want to be tall". Whaaaa =( Evan and I were talking last night about how sad it is that our kids won't remember anything before age 5-ish. I hope my kids love me when they're big.

Nolan is crying more over a hangnail right now than he did over his cut off finger.
