Cole has been singing a lot lately. It's very cute. He sings songs from his music class (which ended last week) as well as Jesus Loves Me, the ABCs, and my personal favorite, Oh Happy Day.
Beckett, as you can see in the pictures below, is EVERYWHERE! He climbs up on a chair, gets down, crawls to a shelf, stands up, gets down, crawls over to me, climbs OVER me and then heads into the kitchen for some more standing and sitting and moving. PHEW! I like to watch Colton on his tricycle chase Beckett around the kitchen. It's pretty funny and they both laugh hysterically.

My Joersz boys have been SO cute lately. This last week they have been playing together quite a bit each day. Cole will take out tons of toys and set them in front of Beckett, all while running around and making little Beck laugh & squeal.
Jon was out of town last Thursday-Monday for a church youth group trip to Panama City Beach, FL. (NICE! I would have loved to run around on the beach) We really missed him, but definitely got by. Oma even came down for a visit to keep us company.
Beckett is on the move---all the time. Emma says it's a little exhausting! Trust me, it's exhausting for this canine too (He loves crawling all over me!) Sometimes I go out in the backyard to relax. I have officially found my favorite chair to sit under during meals, by the way. Colton has gotten much better about not dropping food, but Beckett is quite the mess. I LOVE IT! Normally I'm sent out back at dinnertime, but breakfast and lunch are fair game.
Colton is speaking very well lately. He can say full sentences, though we can only understand the main words. "Can't" and "don't" are favorites at the moment: "Cole, do you want to go pee pee in the potty?" "No, mommy, I CAN'T." Speaking of the potty, Cole went pee pee on the potty once this last week. It's a step!
So far this weekend has been really relaxing. It's been nice spending time together as a family.

Ah, the day we looked forward to all week! Saturday was our family's annual fourth of July party. The party had a bit more of an intimate atmosphere this year and everyone had a great time spending it together.
One of Cole's favorite parts of the day was playing in the ice tub!
It was supposed to rain all day Saturday, but ended up only raining for a bit and then was great weather for dinner outdoors.
Jon & Emma
The guys had a blast playing paintball this year. They played all morning until about 3 o'clock in the afternoon. Those paintball guns scare me...but probably not as much as those fireworks they shot off after dark.Thanks for spending the time & looking at all my photos and reading about our fun week. I'm definitely spending a lot of time catching up on my sleep. Barking at those cows all week can really take it out of you! (Sorry Oma!)
