I'm super late getting this blog post up. Sorry! It's been a crazy week for sure. Last week we had a bunch of fun and did fun things with family and friends. Our little Reid is so smart.

That frees us up in the morning to be able to do fun stuff, and he naps longer in the afternoons. Ruby has been really loving to play pretend, and she's constantly singing. She's doing really well with going potty, I just have to take her often. If I forget, she still has accidents. (We just did Crater Lake all weekend with her in undies, and it went great! But more of that next…

One evening this week we were praying and Andy was just holding his hand out to Reid, and Reid started putting pieces of his hamburger into Andy's hand instead of holding it. It was hilarious and we all started cracking up. He loves handing us things. Ruby's been doing really good at going potty this week, thankfully. Hopefully we've turned a corner.  The silliest, cutest kids around.  Ruby's art.  They love wrestling and playing together.  The Butenschoen's came over for dinner on Saturday, so Ruby drew a family portrait of them. She's getting pretty good.  Ruby and Penny played and played. They mostly played h…
