Mommy has no speakers on her computer. I had a couple of sets, but I gave them away. I don't like the speakers because the computer makes noise and I don't want to hear it. We'll I didn't want to hear any noise coming from the computer until today.
Is this not just the cutest little voice in the world. (not that I'm biased or anything) Little Benjamin has learned this song at Sunday School. He enjoys singing it very much. He was being a little shy on the last word. Usually he screams it as loud as he can. We should all be thankful he was being shy.
My camera allows me to take videos. I can then upload the video onto my computer. If I had speakers, I would be able to hear my little angel sing his song. Mommy must get speakers. Maybe Billy has an extra pair. He's the one I gave all mine to. I'll just called and he didn't answer. I bet he's gonna claim he was asleep. It's only 11pm, I don't know why he would be sleeping! I want to hear the angel's voice and I could (even though he's sleeping) if Billy would just wake up and bring me speakers!
Little Benjamin just learned this song on Sunday. He doesn't like the verse that says "Jesus Loves the little children." He's pretty opposed to the word love. I guess it's easy to not like the word love if you know that you are loved more than anything else in the world by mommy.
Mommy was not prompting him on the words at all. He was just having to think about what the next line was. I think it makes it cuter. We've only been singing the song since Sunday. He's so smart to learn it so fast.
He made up the ending on his own. Next we are going to learn "This Little Light of Mine." Well, at least the chorus and the 1st verse. He will like that song. Next time I will turn on the over head lights and hopefully they won't be so dark.
I don't remember singing like this. Once I started recording him, he was having fits to sing more songs on the camera. He almost had an attack waiting for me to download these so that he could sing Itsy Bitsy Spider.
Hopefully the next song will be coming soon. We practice every chance we get. Especially when we are driving in the car.

Austin getting his revenge on my boy.
For quite a while, long enough to make the dirt under the trampoline and along the grass a mud hole, I squirted the hose over the top of the trampoline and the boys got to jump in the rain. The neighbor behind us was out cleaning his pool. He said he thought that was the way to jump, with mommy squirting the water hose. He has a real pool. I wonder if he is single or if he has small kids. He seems like a good "friend" to have. Anyone with a pool out here would make a good friend.
They love drinking out of the hose. These two were drinking water like they were camels getting ready to cross the Sahara.
We had to put the pool on the porch in an attempt to have some shade. In the shade it was 111 today. In the sun, it was closer to 120. The boys had a great time. My boy took no nap. He never takes a nap after going to his dad's because he wakes up a couple hours later and doesn't want to nap till a couple hours before bed time, so mommy keeps him up and gets him to bed a little early. He was asleep in minutes tonight. I'm sure Austin was asleep early too.
Granny was sure that Austin hadn't had lunch, so I fixed the boys a snack of honey bun, breakfast bar, wheat thins with spray cheese, and milk. Austin loved the honey bun and Benjamin liked the breakfast bar and the spray cheese on chips. They are both on their 2nd cups of milk. Austin drank the soy milk Benjamin drinks right now for a long time because milk made him have eczema. He has grown out of it, so his parents quit buying it for him. When I can't find it on sale, it is $8 to $9 a gallon, depending on what store I can find it out. Only 3 grocery stores around here sell it, and Walmart isn't one of them. So, when ever Austin comes over he always asks if he can have some of Benjamin's milk. Usually him and Benjamin will drink 3 or 4 cups each. It is sickenly sweet and smells disgusting, but those two can't get enougt of it.

Granny came over to spend the night at our house. The boy is exctied. He's had a fun day. At Sunday School he has learned the BIBLE song. He loves it. Mommy has always sang Jesus Loves Me to him and he would say "No, I don't like." He's now asking to sing it also. He really likes Sunday School. Mommy is glad he can go now that it's hot and no one is sick.

Extensive yard work
Any house remodeling
If you want any of these items done soon, do them now! It is much more enjoyable to sit in a chair and instruct those around you on how you would like them to do these things than it is to have to do them yourself. Once little Clayton is born, everyone thinks you should help with these unpleasant chores. I managed to move, have the yard put in, and paint the playhouse and little Benjamin's room all while pregnant. I sat in a chair and instructed. It was the easiest move into a new house I have ever had. Mom even helped me unpack. It was the only time I remember in recent years that she helped me unpack. Even she felt sorry for me being so huge.
