Resourceful or redneck? You decide.

We had a lot of fun on the 4th of July. Thomas and Chipper have been working a big tomato patch in exchange for fireworks. Together they earned about $200 worth of fireworks, so we had to get started while it was still light!

We had a ton of rain the night before, but we still enjoyed snuggling on a damp blanket in the grass.

Oooh! Aaaahhh!

Last night Chipper came home from football camp and told me that he didn't get to participate because we had not turned in a physical form for him yet. *Sigh. So early this morning I took him to the chiropractor to get his stuff signed. I needed to get home by 9:30 to get Ralph and Theo to therapy on time.

While I was gone with Chipper, my awesome babysitter, Thomas, fed Theo breakfast and got him dressed and ready to go. I got home just in time to throw Ralph and Theo in the van and take off for the east side of town.

Ralph's speech therapy was first, thank goodness. I found Theo's hair smashed full of dried on breakfast...and...he needed a fresh diaper. What to do? I took him to the bathroom and gave him a bath in the sink! He loved it! The hand soap smelled really good, too. I'm still trying to decide if I'm resourceful or just redneck.

No matter, he was clean and fresh for his physical therapy a half hour later.
