* It was almost 200 degrees outside. Okay, maybe not that much. But it sure felt like it.

* We got out early since we knew we'd be in house-jail for the rest of the day.

* We hit up the farmer's market for some fresh raspberries and blueberries! And maybe a cup of freshly squeezed lemonade to share:)

* I actually did an art project with the boys involving paper, glue, styrofoam peanuts and paint. Okay, okay, I didn't really do anything but at least I came up with an idea, right???

* I took a nap after I put E down for her's and parked the boys in front of a cartoon. I am not ashamed to admit it because it was absolutely necessary. Trust me.

* My husband is working an insanely long day and I miss him. He won't get home until almost midnight tonight.

* The children and I escaped any thought of heat and played down in the cool basement. So thankful we have a basement!! And thankful for legos to keep myself...I mean, the children entertained....

* I ate a handful of chocolate chips to celebrate the completion of the nightly putting-to-bed ritual. I'd say running up and down the stairs a few times to settle down restless boys and change a surprise diaper earned a little chocolate! Actually, it doesn't take much to earn chocolate...

* Eliana said, "Hey, Mama!" when I got her up from her nap:)

* Our hot water heater got drained so we can hopefully get rid of the funky smell coming from one of our faucets. The boys were a little grossed out by the spluttering orangey-brown water that came out afterwards. I don't even want to know what that is from.

* I finished invitations for Samuel's upcoming birthday party! The theme? What else? Angry Birds!! We have one excited almost-birthday boy over here;)

* I am finishing my very long, cooped-up-in-the-house kind of day with a Shirley Temple movie and a little quilting!

I just want to tell you how much I enjoy reading your blog. As the mother of a son - I get very little information about specific things that happen with the kids:) (You know - Mr. Communication.) I can read your blog and feel so connected in knowing some things that are going on in the lives of my precious grandchildren. Thank you for the time and effort you put into this. I look forward to reading it everyday.

I hope it cools down for you guys up north soon. You guys are getting a taste of what Texas summers are like. :)
