Saturday we got in the car and went to pick up a pack 'n' play from our good friends the Coopers since they were gracious enough to give us their old one. We are so excited to use it since it will be a way to keep John confined while I get a shower or can't otherwise watch him, force him to learn to play on his own, and hopefully get used to sleeping in it before we go to CA in July. He seems to like it for now, but even when he throws a fit we'll be making him play in it most days to keep him used to it.
I took some videos in the car yesterday of John trying to cluck like mom and dad, and playing peek-a-boo with daddy's hat. They're short and cute, here they are:
What a great morning we had at church today! Our friend Brandon Briscoe took over for Michael Darr and taught Sunday school, and what a great lesson we learned from a few sheep! Isn't it wonderful that sheep and shephards had such a great relationship in those times that the sheep would only follow the voice of their own shephard? Many flocks would be penned up together at night, and in the morning, shephard by shephard they would call their flocks out of the pen and only the sheep who recognized the voice of their master would come. I think it is so relevant today that we must be correctly trained day after day to hear the voice of our Shephard and respond. We are not to listen to the thieves and false shephards of today, but only to our Great Provider and Leader. Anyway, kind of rambling, but thanks Brandon for teaching us what it means to be like sheep :) Well after church we came home and played for a while, here's a video.
Oh yeah, this is the general progression of John in the car, pretty funny. That's all for now, have a great week all!

Let's see, what else? Friday John and I went with some ladies at church and their kids to a park with a fountain that shoots up out of the ground; it was so much fun to play in, but John had more fun shouting at a puppy that was also there, than playing in the fountain. We didn't get any pictures because we were too wet to get the camera out, sorry! We also went to daddy's church softball game last night, which was a blast (for the spectators). Sadly they lost in just the 4th inning because they were behind by so much, but it was a great evening with friends. There were lots of fireants on the ground so we couldn't get out of the back of the car, but John didn't seem to mind. He played in the back of the Trailblazer with Bailey Briscoe.
Well today is Saturday and I don't have much planned. We'll probably go to the Augusta Greenway for a walk in the shade and run some errands. That's all for now, I love you all and miss you.

Right now I'm sitting listening to John scream his head off because he doesn't want to take another nap today, even though he's sick and tired. We were going to go to Target but I discovered a flat tire as I was pulling out of the driveway so Isaac went with AAA to get it fixed. Hopefully he'll be back soon so I can get this boy out of the house for a while, it's too hot for a walk!I guess there's one new development; we turned John around in the car and he loves it! He can see out the window and see us now, and it seems to make the car rides much better. Yay for growing up!

This is another pic from our house in the kiddie pool
Here's a few pictures of when Grandma and Grandpa Hammond were here last week! It was a great visit but ended too soon! Luckily We're all going out to CA in July to celebrate John's birthday, and his cousin Warren's also.

John got a pool! Grandma and Grandpa Hammond were here visiting and we picked up a $5 pool at Babies 'R' Us. He seemed to really like it, so we're planning on using it this summer when it's unbearable here in the wonderful state of Georgia.
