Spaghetti, wounds, Hair cuts

Yes a strange title.....but I run out of ideas, so that is what is happening and in that order.

Brentley is learning to feed himself and is quite pleased about it.





Wren headed into summer school.  Who is that tall leggy thing!!??

 WARNING!!!!  A bit of gore ahead!!  Shermans leg isn't healing up as well as we'd hoped.  some of the stitches pulled apart in the middle because of infection and drainage.  He's had to go in 3 times now and have it dug around on and stimulated to help with healthy tissue growth.  It is quite unpleasant for Sherm, and for me to watch!  This is the first day before they started digging.  Notice how pitty and soft it looks.

This is after the second round of picking and trimming.  It's looking better, but still really pitty and soft.

This was after giving it a 3 day rest from picking.  The tissue down inside is definitely smoother and more solid looking.  They picked out all the dead stuff and made it bleed. We go back again in a week for a check up.  They won't try to stitch it shut again, but will let it heal from the bottom out. He's supposed to scrub it in the shower......like intentionally make it bleed kind of scrub..........makes me cringe!!  He's going to have a nasty scar!  He's been a trooper.  He's about to go nutty from boredom though!  He's not supposed to run or jump, only walking, and no sweating, or getting it dirty, or swimming.  His summer is RUINED he is thinking.
 

 This little man stayed with us for 3 nights while his mamma and daddy enjoyed some alone time.  The cute factor is off the charts..........and he works his charm to it's fullest extent on these easy targets called Nanna and Papaw!



We all have the same shoes.  The girls think that is so cool.

 I decided to cut Wrens hair again.  She requested it.  She is tired of having it combed and braided.  When we got home she didn't think it was short enough cause it was still blowing in her face.  Here is their before pictures.



Lunch at McDonalds before their appointment.




 Iley had already eaten her apple pie, but was more than willing to share her generous sister's ice cream cone!


 In the process.


 Iley, all done.

 Both of them after.  I'm not sure about Wren's......it looks a little uneven, but I know her wonky shaped head is super hard to cut, so I'm giving it a few days to see.




We finally found a house to rent in Fountain!!  We will get possession of it on July 10th.  I'm hoping to go out on Thursday and see it, get some measurements and a better idea of the lay out. I've been looking up houses, contacting the realtor, setting up appointments, and Troy has been going through them and calling me to discuss the pros and cons.  So this is the first time I will have seen it in person.  Hopefully I will have some pictures of it on the next blog.  Thanks all of you faithful prayer warriors!  My next prayer request is for the boys. 
1. Pray for positive attitudes towards the move
2. That they would find at least one good friend.
Thanks!

Funny Faces, Funny Folk


Thursday Morning I all of a sudden realized I hadn't seen or heard either of the girls for a while.  I went looking, and found Iley camped out here, and Wren upstairs in Harrison's room looking at comics.  She came down for lunch, then went back up.  I finally DRUG her out.....very miffed......at 5:00pm!!  Iley says "Wren loves comics"

 This little sweetie came to see Nanna on Thursday too.



 And this punkin stayed here while his mamma got a tooth filled.

 I think maybe your box is too big my love.

 Wren was dancing, and spinning....after she got over being mad about being removed from the comics.


Iley thinks Sherman's crutches are a lot more fun than Sherman does.
 

 I looked out the window to see Wren tying her flip flop up in the tree, and the rest of the strap around the ropes on the slide.


I found Iley chillin in a "hammock" rigged up by Wren I'm sure.  It's the remnants of what used to be the roof on their swing set.  Brand new 3 years ago, the wind shredded it.



 Just cruisin in my boat.

 Brentley loves his paw paw!

 This is his new face.  He does this every time we say Breeeeentley..... to get him to look at us.  It's cracking me up!












 He's learning how to navigate the steps. He went up and down several times.
