"I already did that"

Our precious Loryn has a new saying in her life - "I already did that". If I ask her to go to the bathroom, she says it, even if it has been more than 3 hours. If I say that it is time for bed, she says it, even though it has been a whole day and it is yet again bedtime. Doesn't matter, to her she has done it before and therefore it is not neccesary to do it again. Don't you wish we could all think as innocently as that again. When I think about that I begin to wonder, when did we lose our innocents? A point to ponder...
I have been getting behind with my blog and I appologize and part of the reason is that our office is so messy that I don't even want to go in it. But it should all be cleaned up by the time Kathi comes which is this coming Tuesday. The kids are very excited. Loryn keeps saying that she has to wait to do certain things or this is this or this is that because grandma is coming and then she'll ask when is grandma coming. Soon, honey, soon. Time to children is a hard concept to understand. Anything that has already happened is yesterday and if it seems like a long time ago it was 40 years ago or even sometimes a 100 years ago. If is going to happen it is tomorrow. Don't even try to explain how long a month is our a year. Caleb keeps asking when fall is because that is when kindergarten starts. Actually I don't think it will look or feel like fall when he starts which is August 8th. Or atleast that is when he registers and gets to meet his teacher. I believe the real date is that next monday the 13th.
I thought I would go ahead and write a little post to try and keep up. The whole wait till I catch up thing is not working and what I will do instead is add it as soon as I can. I have some cute video and pics of Elijah's birthday and 4th of July.
Well Caleb is yelling for me... so I must get back to life.
