About Time!

So I was thinking that it was about time I updated again. Summer has been great so far! Busy and full, but great! The apartments are still throwing challenges at us daily but we have been doing ok at keeping up with things the best we can. I have started a website but still need to get pictures up of the actual buildings. Hopefully soon. Check it out if you are... well bored I guess. Or looking for a place to rent! :)  www.westwoodapartmentswi.com

This was how we occupied the boys the other day when I was painting in one of the apartments and Caleb was working in the garage there! It worked wonders, but had some repercussions! They were a mess!!
We went to the playground the other night with our buddy Johnny. It was actually on Father's Day! Mike (John's dad) was golfing and Caleb was out fishing so Dawn and the boys and I played! So cute to see them ALL holding hands! 

Since Luke has been tiny he has been highly sensitive to any sensory stimulation... grass for instance has always drove him crazy... and still does! He was trying to pull his shorts down while sitting on the grass the other night! And Max was pointing out his boo-boos!
Caleb bought this jet ski the other day... supposedly got it super cheap and is planning to sell it for some cash! But I think he has big plans to use it in the mean time! :)

Max wasn't a huge fan!

Watching the Musky Fest Parade on Sunday!
So in our little town of Hayward we have Musky Fest! Yes, it is a typical local festival. We have vendors that line the streets, a carnival, that great "traveling" food, and a parade! There is nothing super special about it, but I love it! Walking downtown on Sunday to the parade was so cool... everyone was downtown... like EVERYONE from EVERYWHERE to watch this little dinky parade and it just felt so... homey! I like our small town and our small town ways. I like that people all gather on main street to watch the marching band and stand as the American flag goes by! It's just a great feeling to experience these things with my boys! And let me tell you ... they LOVED the parade! They were stuffing their mouths with candy, in awe of the big trucks and full of waves for all the pretty queens and princesses!

Papa and the boys on a tractor ride!
Mr. Fix-It... aka Luke! He cracks me up with his little drill and he walks around to all the joints on my stools, chairs and tables pounding away!

And yes, he really gets into it!!
I was telling some of my girlfriends this morning at bible study that last night as we put the boys to bed they both decided THEY wanted to pray instead of Caleb and I praying over them. So as I prayed with Max he repeated every last word of each stanza I said... Dear Jesus... Jesus... Thank you for this day... day... so, so sweet! It melted my heart! I just told Caleb that I feel like they are growing up so fast!

Our bible study has been really exciting for me. We are talking about Paul and studying his life. It is so interesting to me to DIG into scripture and to understand the context and history behind it. It is a first for me in a lot of ways. First time that I have been in a study like this. I have researched some on my own, but never in a g+roup (that + was from Max... he's sitting next to me!). Anyway, it has been really good to be in a group where I can feel comfortable enough to ask some questions to connect some dots and really learn more about the Word! I have really been enjoying it!! AND I got home by about 7:30 this morning from study, was all showered and ready for the day and my boys slept in until 9:00!!!! It was a great morning to get some bookwork done, Caleb's lunch made and laundry put away! Maybe the lesson is I just need to get up at 5:15 every morning... uh, no!
