Scenes from the terrace

It’s official. I’ve given up on the front terrace. I used to have a fantasy of a vine covered oasis brimming with red flowers and juicy raspberries. Now, I just don’t really go out there. But everyone else does. It’s the spot for popsicle eating, mini-pool splashes and on the back terrace, laundry. Even though I’ve thrown in the towel, it’s still a pretty cool space to see Rome. One that I’ll actually miss.

Super sisters back at it

Part of George’s job in life is to provide joy to his sisters, by way of letting them hold him.

And sleeping.

And holding.

But juggling all three is sometimes a challenge. That’s why we’ve invested in some totally desperate new games and activities for the big sisters to enjoy during those rare moments when they’re not snuggling with the little guy.

Our first visitor also got in on this action. Cathy, who is our pastor’s wife at Rome Baptist Church, came over during George’s first week and brought gifts, including this bead project for Phoebe which she amazingly got together (with help from both Paul and I) without any of the other kids ingesting any. At least I think so.
