After they had been playing for a while, I heard some screams and the kids came running in the house. "There's nobody on the swing, but it's moving and creaking!" "I think it's a ghost!" I had a good laugh, until midnight, when I was startled awake by two bloodcurdling screams. Seriously, I thought there must be an axe murderer in the boys' room. Or a rat. Or at least a big spider. Oh, no. Benjamin saw a monster and screamed and woke up Joshua who screamed. After I recovered from my myocardial infraction, I went to check on Samantha (who usually wakes at the drop of a pin) but she managed to sleep right throughthe shrieking banshees. This morning I asked Benjamin if he saw a monster last night. "Yes." "But it was just your imagination, right?" "No, it was skeery."
This next group of pictures is from a quasi-5K that Joshua and I ran last weekend. I was so proud of him! I love the picture of Joshua running with my dad (I was able to drop Joshua off and pick up the pace a little for the last mile) except I'll have to photoshop out the random guy (sorry random guy!).
