Today's update.

Carter. Oh, that Carter bug. If there was ever a kid who had serious self confidence, it would be him. He rules the house, or so he thinks. But he can also be my hardest worker and most obedient. He loves soccer and Pokemon. He is really into Pokemon Go. He is very tender with Perry and I just love to watch those two together. Carter is also obsessed with our chickens and turkeys. Especially the turkey. He goes out at least 4 times a day to check on the coop and collect eggs and pet the turkey. It is so fun. 
Megs. That girl still has the absolute best imagination. She can and does play for hours with her toys. It's so fun to watch her just interact with herself. Haha. She gets to be a flower girl this weekend for Golden's wedding this next weekend, and between that and her 8th birthday in a week and a half, she is just so excited for life she can't contain herself. So she's our happy girl. She loves Perry too. She lives to sit and read to him and okay house with him. 
Derrick has been having a hard time this summer. He has not really liked having Megan and Carter home and back in his space. He likes order and peace, and those two home have been disrupting his. But, he is getting better. He starts kindergarten and is super excited. I'm really nervous for him. I don't know how he'll handle all the people and no space. We shall see!  He is still such a sweet and tender hearted boy. 
Perry. Oh my Perry. He is one spoiled little boy. He has everyone wrapped around his cute little fingers. He is obsessed and I mean OBSESSED with airplanes and trains. He also just loves being outside. He'll be the only child left at home, and I'm pretty sure he is going to be one lonely kid. He's used to having his siblings at his beck and call. But I'm excited for some one on one time. 
And so that's our updates!

Grant County Fair

Ivin's family and Mine met up at my parents for the triplets birthday and for some good county fair time!!! We saw animals, a magic show, watched the kids compete in a tractor pull, ate space burgers and snow cones, and of course had cotton candy. Fun was had by all, but the heat got the best of us, and after a few hours we were DONE. Still, it was a great trip. 

Grant County's Demolition Derby!

Bo had the day of the Demolition Derby off for the Grant County fair, so we took the kids and headed to my parents for a couple days to go to the fair and the derby. Luckily for us, Ivin's triplets also had their birthday the day before the demo, so they came to my parents too so that we could all celebrate together. It was a fun day and night. The kids loved seeing the cars crash. Christina was introduced to this red neck past time, and I'm pretty sure she got more into it than we did. Hahaaa. I'll try to post fair picks later.

Tender mercies.

My heart is full, and God cares very much for me. Tonight I was feeling very overwhelmed with the kids, dinner making, and the mess that surrounded me. Bo was gone and I was trying to postpone dinner as long as possible in the hopes he could make it in time and we could all eat together. The kids were hungry though, and begging/crying for items in the pantry. So I got dinner finished up, got the kids and food at the table. The only thing not on the table was water, and it was because I was just so gosh darn tired and beaten down and ready to SIT. So we said prayer and started eating, and I waited for one of them to cry for a drink, while silently hoping no one would notice. You see, at the end of the day I am just so darn tired of asking and debating and fighting for help. So there I sat. And then, THEN, I noticed Carter get up and leave the room. Minutes later he returned with cups of water for everyone. And that right there was proof that my savior loves me by providing such a simple act through my son and that as crazy as that now TEN ( happy birthday to him today) year old boy is, he is also a sweet, caring, wonderful, and selfless little boy. And so my heart is full.

Conversations with Meg.

"Mom!  There's some boys at school who are in love with me and are trying to get me to fall in love with them!"
"Oh yeah? How do you know?"
"Because they dress really nice and then walk by me. (She giggles. Shoot, I giggle). They want me to see how nice they are and fall in love!"

This next conversation happened in church. 
"Mom, did you know that they have these machines that can MAKE clothes and that they sell them at the store???"
"Yes, they're called sewing machines. They sew cloth and material together, not paper though (Megs clothing making material)."  
"Can we get one????"  
She's forever the fashionista. Poor girl was born to the wrong mother.

Oh no

Perry had discovered how to open and close the doors. Now I have to put things out of reach. Why is he growing up so quickly?!

Today's update.

Perry is working really hard on learning the names of the objects on faces. So far he has nose and possibly the ear. Hahaa. He also folded his arms for the first time today. He looooves cars. It took 3 sons to finally have one who likes to play with them. Lucky for him, since he is the third boy, we have scores of cars and car toys.   He is happiest when he has a car in his hand. Although today he was quite frustrated because he couldn't carry the three big trucks in his arms at the same time. Haha. One year old problems. 
Poor Megan has three colds sores on her lip and a canker sore on her tongue. She has her daddy's genes. She also got bonked on her forehead today, so life is a little hard. She did recently rediscover American Girl dolls, thanks to a magazine in the mail.  She is constantly coming and asking how much this and that is. Guess what she wants for Christmas?  
Derrick is turning into Carter. Full of energy and craziness. He is fun though. And so sweet. He still loves puzzles and just begs and begs for someone to play games with him. 
Carter has finally discovered the joy of reading. I hope it lasts. He has been breezing through books, and passing off the quizzes he takes on them. At home I'm pretty sure he thinks he's one of the adults, not the kids. Ha. But having him get older and more responsible has been great. He continues to crack me up with jokes and facial expressions. And he can still be the biggest charmer. 
And thats my update. 

The Beus Gang

Bo, Cassidy, and Carter Beus
