In his defense, he did the best he could. He woke up sick this morning for some reason. Didn't he know that I needed him in tip-top shape today?? Fortunately (and conveniently) he's feeling somewhat better this evening and will probably be back to his normal chipper self in the morning. (Ha! Can you really imagine Ben "chipper"? I'm laughing out loud at that one!)
But we did have a wonderful event today. We picked the first watermelon from our garden and cut it open! And there's like 5 or 6 more out there growing. Wow... they have just taken off!

I made the kids go outside to eat it - NOT on the patio. You've got to drip in the grass, girls - I don't want ants! (Don't worry, they didn't eat alone - I joined them!)
And as for the state of the house in general, it's getting there! The room that is the MOST complete is Connor's. This is the first time I've really been able to put his toys in his room since we're not in a townhouse anymore. The little guy loves being able to play in his own room! And his momma loves letting him do it. Happy day!
