Summer Colds are the Worst!

Chris, Kinley, and I have all had summer colds this week. Yuck! I think we are finally all feeling better although Kinley and I still have runny noses a little. Kinley was up four or five times in the night . . . I think he is getting his bottom eye teeth. Ouch! Hope they don't take too long.
Continue to pray for Mom and Erik. They get back Friday from Guatemala. I can't wait to hear all that God has done!
Chris started his second "hobby" job again for the summer. I'm not looking forward to the next four or five weeks since we probably won't see him much. Kinley won't see him at all a lot of days since he will go straight from the piggies to the roof. :( Pray for us . . . that we would be loving towards eachother. It is always hard for me when we don't get much time to talk or be together.
Sorry this is such a random blog. :)

First Hair Cut

Well . . . Our internet has been down the last three days, so I have enjoyed catching up on all or your blogs. :) I've been wanting to put pictures of Kinley's first hair cut on for awhile now. Thanks Lindsey for cutting Kinley's hair! I love it and so does Chris. They really look alike now. :) It was hard to say good bye to the curls, but it is so much cooler for him this summer and since we don't have air conditioning . . .

Who needs toys?

Kinley has had fun playing in the big box that our new desk chair came in. It still amazes me what really entertains him and other kids that I have seen. They really don't play with "toys" a whole lot. They wonder around playing with whatever they can around the house. Kinley's favorites are clothes, shoes, kitchen utensils, and now this big box. Good thing we don't go buy him new toys all the time, because they would just go to waste. I'm sitting in our new desk chair. . . it is so comfy! A lot better than the folding chair we were using. I put it together yesterday and was very impressed with myself. :) Happy Friday everyone!

I finally opened my MP3 player that Chris got me for my birthday. I didn't think I would be able to figure out how to download songs onto it, but after playing with it awhile yesterday I figured it out! Hurray! I know have some dance songs on it so I can walk or jog with it. Hopefully it will motivate me to get moving! :)
