Glimpses into Our Life

Big Smiles

We’re enjoying these days of March as the weather is warming and we’ve been able to get outside and play.

I’ve been doing some gardening too – last week I started spinach, peas, lettuce and turnips. Our new hens also started laying last week, they’ve laid 2 eggs a day for the past 4 days! We’re looking forward to an increasing egg supply to keep up with our egg eating habit.

Little RiderWeston rode the little 4-wheeler for the very first time last week. It’s so hard to believe that he’s about the age that Paxton was when we got this (it was a dumpster find that needed a battery…we would not have it otherwise!) He had a blast riding.


At one point Weston was riding around on his 4-wheeler and Paxton on his tricycle and Paxton insisted that I take a picture of him and brother in front of daddy’s car!

After a long day of play, the boys were wild and the living room looked like a disaster zone. Of course, this is what our living room looks like at the end of nearly every day!Finger Painting

Weston painted his very first masterpiece last week. He actually did quite well painting, he only tried to lick the paint off of his fingers twice and I was able to stop him. I’ve really been enjoying the toddler side of Weston, it makes activities with both boys easier.

The boys both painted pictures for John David’s grandparents. We made a quick weekend trip to visit them after Papaw’s heart attack last week. He is not expected to recover and we wanted to just be there with family. John David stayed with them the entire time we were there and it was a time that we’ll look back on with both sadness and happiness. (And, those pictures, I forgot all about them while there so we put them in the mail the day after we got back home!)

Snuggling Weston

One drawback to spring in the south is storms and tornadoes. We were under a warning Monday night and I do not take warnings/watches lightly now that I’m a mama. We (me and the boys, my hubby isn’t as ‘cautious’) spent 15 minutes camped out in our hallway with pillows, a crib mattress and Weston strapped to me in the Boba. Thankfully it wasn’t anything serious!

So, that’s a glimpse into the past week of life for the Boreing family.

  1. I am so sorry to hear about "Pawpaw". He and your family are in my prayers.
    And after the scare you had last year with the storm, I dont blame you for hiding out in the hallway! That is one bad thing about not having a basement. In our house, the only room without windows is the bathroom which is right smack dab in the middle of the house.
