Our li’l cowpokes

I just have to report that my husband’s amazing musical gene-ious has been passed on to at least one of our children.  DH was giving Bud a drum lesson in the garage yesterday afternoon while we were all playing outside.  Soon, we all stopped what we were doing and started listening, because our little six year old who can’t even reach the pedal for the bass drum, was keeping a steady beat with both hands and was able switch from snare to tom while continuing with the cymbals.  Just in case you aren’t sufficiently impressed, let me tell you that I cannot do what he did.  My husband, who claims he “doesn’t know” how to play drums (i.e. taught himself what he does know), has given our son enough instruction (and genetic disposition) to be able to play surprisingly well.  We were all quite impressed and look forward to encouraging his skill.  Everybody needs to know they’re really good at something.

It has been so long since I’ve posted.  If you saw my previous post, you know why!  Adding our fourth child has been so much fun, but also a really big adjustment.  I feel like I am going ninety miles an hour all day long and only getting half of my work done.  There have been times in the past few months when I could have blogged, but I opted for other activities, like blowing raspberries into Li’l Britches’ tummy, or snuggling up with hubby on the couch to catch a little chuckle from Letterman.

I have had several things to blog about, and I don’t know if I’ll get to any of them.  One event in particular stands out.  DH and I celebrated our 8th wedding anniversary in March.  He decided it would be fun to go on a nice sunset dinner cruise.  It was so wonderful, with a seven course French meal, we felt a little out of our class.  It was funny Dinner Cruisethough,  because people kept implying that we were so young.  We were told there was “non-alcoholic” champagne.  Some lady asked if we were going to prom.  Another couple thought we were on like a high school date.  We just had to chuckle.  8 years and 4 kids later, we must still have either a very youthful appearance, or else our inexperience and uncertainty shine through as if we are teenagers. 🙂  Since I just turned 29, I’m going to vote for the former.

 Speaking of my birthday, this year’s birthday was wonderful.  In fact, I’ll have to make a new post for it.  Of course, it may be three more months before I get around to it, but we’ll see. 🙂   In the mean time, Sunshine is standing up in her high chair with oatmeal in her hair and Bud and Missy are ready for school.  My days are full, and my cup runneth over.
