Seriously, someone should buy these kids a sandbox.
A month ago Mr. Rancher brought home a load of firewood. We had more fun than usual, "moving the wood into the shed."
Will life ever slow down? I'm beginning to think the answer to that question is a big, resounding NO! Remember that post about graduate school ending and the chunk of time I was sure I would have, but also sure would be filled in no time flat?
