Things I don't want to forget about today:

*picnicking with all the neighbor moms at the back-to-school brunch
*watching Linc run around with all the toddlers his age since the big kids are back at school
*sitting under the fan for a good ten minutes with Linc to cool off after being outside for a couple hours
*helping Ollie with his first day of 1st grade homework- he was giddy!
*Ollie reading out loud to me- again he was so happy and proud and smart
*talking with the boys about the baby (who is definitely showing in my belly now!)
*telling them how I went running {s.l.o.w.l.y.} this morning because it's good for me and the baby
then all of us laughing at the thought of a tiny baby in my belly 
with a headband running on a treadmill and stretching
*listening to the boys' stories from school

*hearing the following dialogue:
Ollie- "I sat by Tadeo at lunch!"
Elliott- "I used to have a Mateo in my class."
Linc pipes right in like he always does- "Addie has a potato at her house!"

*cooking zucchini and yellow squash from my garden, corn and tomatoes from my mom's for dinner
*hearing about Adam's day- even if it was stressful for him
*coming home from visiting teaching to the boys already bathed and in jammies
*making strawberry shakes and eating them on the porch in the warm summer night
*laying on the grass in the warm breeze watching the clouds cover and uncover the moon
*Elliott bringing out a blanket and pillows for everyone to be more comfy 
(until the mosquitoes came out and we had to book it inside)
*clipping all the boys' finger and toenails- not my favorite job- but I love when they are trimmed!
*Ollie reading one of his favorite books to us at bedtime- "I Stink" about a garbage truck
*Elliott reading a pile of books to his little brothers (I am one proud mom!)
*Linc saying the parts he knew to his favorite books
*putting a bandaid on Ollie's toe after he kicked something and skinned it
*consoling a howling/crying Linc after a certain brother "accidentally" threw a car at his leg
*kissing my boys goodnight (they smell so good after a bath)

I feel like one lucky momma to have these boys in my life!

My heart is so full of love.

I laughed so hard I almost cried (what's new?) about the potato. So funny.
And I'm pretty sure you ARE going to have a little runner baby :) but still, funny visual.
