Ordinary

I am sure I am not the only one who will find it strange that 
I think we are an ordinary family.

I am even laughing as I write this because I realize how funny it all sounds.

Us, ordinary.

Yes, even with all the stares, picture taking, and whispers.  

Plain ol' us.  

We don't have highly groomed backgrounds.
Well, maybe the six-year-old does {smile}.
We haven't traveled the globe.
We don't speak other languages fluently...anymore...unless you count boy as a language.

We haven't finished a triathlon.
{maybe because many days feel like a marathon?}
We don't vacation in exotic places.
Usually we can be found pretty close to home.  

We are a fairly common, typical species...

We {try to} climb trees and pick at their roots.  

We run and explore. 

We get all snuggled up in a towel after sprinkler fun and ask mommy what's for dinner.

We get up close and personal with the creepy crawlies.

Visiting our favorite carousel is a special treat.

And if we feel like getting extra crazy, we take a trip to our local tree farm.

We hug our big brother before he goes off to school, and say
what mom says, "I'll miss you sweetie."

We run some more especially in the sunshine. 

We pretend the bikes we are trying to pedal are our motorcycles, and 
we are part of the most awesome motorcycle gang ever.

And we kiss our brothers' boo-boos on both knees when he asks.

Yes, we are pretty ordinary, but our boys and our life....
well they're extraordinary!!!!!

Enjoy your Sunday sweet friends!!
