Why You Don't Turn Your Back On Toddlers:

Usually on preschool days, we get the older two kids ready and off to school before coming home to get the younger two ready. We'd come home, and I gave the little two some yogurt with their breakfasts. I told them to eat while I went upstairs to dry my hair. When I finished I heard cackling coming from the kitchen. As I made my way down the stairs I called out, "Should I be scared?" To which Drew replied, "Yes. Be very scared." I found this yogurt madness in the kitchen. It was one of those times that I had a hard time being mad because they were laughing with sheer happiness and fun. The kids know if they are genuinely laughing, I will often laugh too. It's like seeing someone yawn to me - it's contagious. No matter how much I don't want to, I can't help but laugh, too, sometimes (Edward doesn't particularly enjoy this at certain times of discipline!). Anyway, after a quick clean-up and quick bath, no harm was done and we were off to preschool - only 45 minutes late.

Oh my goodness, the Felker household has been NUTS over the last few weeks! We've had

Cub Scout Olympics
Preschool Circus
842 School Field Trips
Doctor's Appointments
Ben's College Graduation
Aaron's College Graduation

Drew's Preschool Graduation

Helped the Waddell's move & worked on their new house
Visited my Grandpa in the hospital (he's had a stroke)
Met a teeny, tiny new cousin
Attended awards ceremonies
Planted a garden
Stuck it out through three tornado watches
Made it to the last day of school (today!)
I'm hoping things slow down a bit for us soon!
