Carry On...


While Noah was busy scoring his first touchdown in flag football, his brothers were busy doing this...
And this...


No...I did not feel the need to ask Jake if he'd eaten some dirt...I think it's fairly obvious.
I'm the mom who was actually relieved that there was something for them to do so I could watch the game. ;)
Carry on boys...carry on.

  1. They say a little dirt is good for ya! Seriously, research is showing that people with allergies may have grown up in too clean an environment. This would certainly be true for me because my mom did the equivalent of others' spring cleaning on a weekly basis! Anyway, don't ya just love little boys?!

  7. I love it! They look like my little man. I'm glad to see that you let your kids play without freaking out if they get dirty! The dirt is probably good for them like 2nd Cup said. My mom told me that when my grandma would make fresh doughnuts, she and her siblings would go out to my grandpa's blacksmith shop and dip the doughnuts in the blackest and finest dirt you've ever seen. Can you believe that? Maybe they all had pica? Anyway, the pictures are great! Happy Wednesday to you and your boys. :)

    PS I read your blog every day at school during my free time. It's a good short break for me from the stresses of teenagers. :)

  10. Nothing like a little protein added to the diet. Just like they say...a little dirt don't hurt, right?

  11. One my dearest friends - who is our Pastor's wife - always says, "God made dirt so dirt don't hurt".

    Last baseball season some of the moms brought their summer sand toys to the practices so that the younger kids could play in the dirt while their older brother/sister was practicing. I thought they were pretty darn smart.

  13. You crack me up!

    A little dirt never hurt anyone. :)

    And thanks for the tip on the ceiling fans. Now that I've actually cleaned the dust off maybe I can start from scratch with the fans running. Hurricane force winds would not have budged the previous layer of dust! :)

  16. I hear that those that live on a farm have less food allergies. Maybe it's because of the dirt?

  17. I'm learning to be more relaxed about dirt. I figure as the mom of three boys I can either choose to relax or end up with an ulcer and heart attack..hmmmm.... :)
    I could learn a thing or two from you. :) Love the pictures!

  19. during spring baseball season i'd dress my little boys in play clothes and rainboots, then they'd splash in puddles and get super messy while i SAT and watched my oldest play ball.

    then strip them down and take them home!

  20. aww who is the smart mommy that dresses her kids in brown sweatshirts the SAME color as dirt-i would say that is some super planning ahead---smart momma!

  21. Awesome.

    And, no. I'm not really jealous that you have like twenty-something comments. Why would you think that? This may be a common thing for you. I don't know. I haven't stalked you that closely. :) I just noticed today. But I'm not jealous.

  23. My granddaddy always said a little dirt never hurt anybody. And I don't think boys should look any other way.

  24. Your boys look as adorable as you! I'm glad to see boys being...well, boys!

    But...hoodies and long sleeves? Already??? I'll trade weather with ya. We're currently under mandatory evacuation orders from Hurricane Ike.

    I'm getting my blog-reading fix in while I can!

  25. I loved the photos of your boys playing in the dirt! Samuel & Benjamin will find whatever dirt they can at any outdoor activity we attend. And like you, I'm happy, because I can actually enjoy what I came for!!
