I love this boy. You know the one with his head stuck under the cabinet. Some days he seems so grown up and will be heading to college soon . Other days I worry he will live in my basement eating peanut butter and jelly forever. Sometime I laugh with him he gets stuck under the cabinet or coming down the stairs. Sometimes I just push him out of the way. Okay , I may be joking on that last part.
This may be the last watermelon of the season. So of course I use it to make more watermelon jelly. I normally save the leftover for the chickens but some little munchkin thought he needed it.
Now that I think about it just 2 hours after eating this watermelon this child slept for 9 hours straight. He has never slept more than 5 hours. This was huge. Hmm, maybe watermelon is his turkey. Okay, going to buy another watermelon today.

I think they are settling in. Gracie will climb on the couch for more snuggles but Howie will only put his paws on the couch. And let me tell you when his paw touches you, you feel it. I cannot believe how much I am enjoying these two.
I know creepy photo bomb of my daughter on the porch. One of the best features of this house is that it has a big wrap around porch. The kids can ride skates on the porch no matter the weather.
