Today we are having some nice warm weather so it got me in the mood to do some work outside. I fixed the gate door and put out some weed killer on the back lawn. Luke and Paisley were having fun watering all the new plants coming up in the front yard. They love feeling like big helpers and holding the hose all by themselves. It was even nicer because they weren't fighting over who gets to hold the hose but kept taking turns. The mood was destroyed for Paisley when the trash truck started coming down our street. She started screaming at the sight of it and was running to the door and wanted all of us to get inside. I don't know why or how she developed this fear. Maybe it is because the truck is HUGE and LOUD. So we came inside for a few minutes, but Luke loves watching the trash truck so when it came back down to do the cans on the other side of the street he went back out on the steps to get a better view. This put Paisley into a screaming fit of tears. She just kept yelling Luke's name over and over telling him to come back. She didn't calm down until he was back inside safe. It was all pretty funny to me and I loved that she is so concerned about her big brother. That just melts my heart :0)

everytime cali hears the garbage trucks, she stops whatever she is doing and yells "truck"(which actually sounds like a profanity the way she says it:) and points and looks really really scared!

that is so sweet that paisley was worried about her luke-it is heart melting:)

That is my favourite picture of the month! You'll have to save them copies for when they're older.
