Flying Men

We live near a flying school and there are always parachuters practicing how to land. So far we ve seen them landing miles off target. You know, on top of trees and peoples houses etc,. Kidding but yeah they arent always so precise with their aiming.
For months Timmy was saying that one of those parachuters were going to land in our garden. Sure enough the other day a man landed in our garden. I ran out to take pics and I thought hede be all embarrassed but instead was all like "Sure no problem" and proceeded to comb his hair and start posing He said his friend had landed in the mud and being the picky Italian he was he opted a clean landing, aka. our garden.

A pic with the kids who all wanted to have pics taken with the guy.

Aguila and Home News

News as of late is that everyone is out either at the Italian retreat or doing relief work at Aguila. Below are some pics taken by the first team that went down there. We sent down another team to do the highschool musical. Photos will follow shortly.

So back home there haven't been many of us to hold down the fort but now another batch of people (with kids) are gone and well be about eight people home...cooking has never been such a breeze.
More on Travis...
Yes cant let a post go by without mentioning this fella.

Tra is getting quite the attitude, his new thing is shaking his head when he doesn't want to go somewhere or do something. I don't know where he got this from. Hes also getting way cuter by the day. His only problems (or rather our only problems) are his sleeping habits are kinda screwed up. This morning he woke up at four with bright eyes and a mischievous grin. I let him play in his crib hoping he would fall back asleep but after about an hour of hearing him squeal/scream/gurgle in his bed, Tim and I were at breaking point.

Still cant get angry at him....Were just very.very.tired.
Here is Tra with his new walker, so far hes doing the first time baby thing, doing the backwards and sideways scuffle

All Work, and No Play

You know, it's been a long, long day here at home...... the flowers are blooming, the birds have been chirping but Allergy season has hit here.
I have no energy for much these days. Work is frustrating, mostly because I’m good at what I do and see so much potential; yet, somehow, the quality of time I spend working is pretty much zero. Of course its because I'm always with my cutey (cant complain)and cook a meal about every day. But at the end of the day... whoo...

So its my wnr night tonight. I think I actually might have the time to blog. I don't mean blogging as in posting a photo, but actually like typing out some words. So we just finished Home Counsel at 10.30 and I am ready to write when I realize that I will still have to wake up tomorrow at five with Travis. Yes, lately hes been up before it gets light and wont go back to sleep, just crawl backwards till he reaches the end of his crib and then will start making weird noises which I try to ignore.

But anyhow despite the fact I cant remember what its like to sleep through the night and sometimes.... well sometimes I long for a time for myself..... I can say I am way happier then when I was a single or when it was just the two of us and wede get bored on wnr, and wow, cant even remember those days.. seems like such a long time ago.

Okay, I need to head off into the sunset and get some other stuff done - like get some sweet
sleep
Goodnight y'all
