Summer Fun Begins

The summer will officially begin for us tomorrow as we travel to Utah to pick up Billy, Mary and Tiffany. Tiffany and Mary are going to spend the week at EFY while the rest of us visit family and friends and play. Today will be busy preparing for the trip and getting bedrooms set up for the three big kids. Jim is busy building Billy's room and I will be putting bunkbeds together for the girls. And Amelie keeps asking when we are leaving--she is so excited! Eric just keeps mimicking words he hears--usually the last words in our sentences. It's very cute!
Believe it or not, one of the terms of endearment that we use, and I am being totaly honest when I say it is truly and usually a very dear term of endearment said with love and fun, is bonehead. The other day, I came home from an afternoon of subbing for elementary music classes and Jim asked Eric 'What is Mommy?' Without hesitation, Eric replied, "Momma bonehead!' And then he went through the family saying the same for us all. Jim was so proud of having taught Eric to say this that Eric says it quite often and always with a smile. We love our quirky family!
