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.
Weston 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.
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!)
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 my carrier. Thankfully it wasn’t anything serious!
So, that’s a glimpse into the past week of life for the Boreing family.
