The Four Musketeers in Action

These kiddos have a blast together. There's nothing more fun than watching them dissolve into gut-wrenching laughter over something completely trivial and only slightly humorous, or watching them play Davy Crockett killing bears, or pretend to be the world's greatest superheroes.

And Isaiah wants to be grown enough to hang with the big dogs. Oh, boy, does he ever want it.

"This is the best moment of my life! I'm on top!"

I gave Lee, Ben, and Phoebe popsicles and instructed them that they were to give bites to Isaiah
whenever he wanted one. (Which is pretty much constantly.) Watching from afar, I saw Ben break off a big piece which flew out of the wrapper and hit the nasty carport floor. Before I could intervene, he scooped it up and shoved it in Isaiah's always- open mouth. But Isaiah isn't Anna's child for nothing. He had seen where that piece of popsicle came from, and he didn't even intend to have that germy thing in his mouth, so he reached in, took it out, carefully returned it to the ground from whence it came and went back to begging for bites. Way to go, Isaiah - do your mama proud.

p.s. Uploading pictures to blogger and getting them in the format I like is a hassle and a headache. So, I'm sorry if the format does weird things. That's just the way life goes sometimes.

Cute! By the way, I know how you feel about formatting pictures. It's a pain!
