Braden made quicksand. He worked for a long time to find the perfect ratio of sand to water. He was so delighted by his creation and he warned all his younger brothers to stay back because the quicksand was “incredibly dangerous.”
He told me, “Mom, I’ll never sell this quicksand! … Well, maybe for three dollars…”
They are constantly wrestling. It’s good-natured (for the most part). Right before I snapped these pictures, Rick mused, “What do you think life would be like if they were all girls?”
Asher looks guilty, and the chocolate on his face totally gives him away!
Josh took the crib in the little boys’ room apart for me. It’s the first time in ten years that we only have one crib up instead of two. I’ll admit that I was a little sad as I watched my big ten-year-old take apart the crib that he slept in as a baby! He did a thorough job, and removed every screw!

He’s proud of his recent wrestling accomplishments.
Little guys close in age and close in size. Jake is taller but Drew is wider!
Josh with his frog.
Asher the wizard!
Life with boys is messy, noisy, and exhausting, but it’s also hilarious, delightful, and the best adventure ever!! I am so thankful for my five amazing sons!
