Seriously, this house has made us better people somehow. Nic and I are in bed at a decent hour, the kids are sleeping through the night, I yell things like "Take your shoes off at the front door!" and "Don't mess with my Azalea bushes!!" Oh, and we've been on time to work and stuff... like I said, I think we've become adults.
Except I hate feeling like an adult so I did an "experiment" in the back yard with the kids today. I'm always telling them not to shake soda cans because they'll explode, but they never believe me. So today, at Conner's request, we shook a can of soda and shook it for a while, threw it up in the air, and watched it smash down on the driveway. IT. WAS. AWESOME! Soda went everywhere, the boys were shocked and awed, and I think they finally get the point about not shaking sodas.
So, that's where we are now, busy, happy, blessed, and ready for summer.
