Did You Know...

that my sons are loud?  They have a ton of energy.  Last night we went to look at a house to rent and had to bring all three boys.  We talked about how to behave when we were in the car, but they all seemed to have forgotten that conversation.  For the most part they were good.  I'm not sure if our new landlord has kids, but it always makes you nervous when you are around a no-nonsense kind of guy.  At one point John said he had to go to the bathroom.  Our landlord told him he could use the bathroom and John proceeded to start going #2 without shutting the door.  At least he washed his hands.  After the bathroom break Hans had to hold Anders while I filled out the rental application.  Gus was not happy that his father was holding another kid.  So Hans was standing in the middle of the living room, John was running circles around him, Anders was crying because he was hungry and Gus was screaming because he wanted Hans to hold him.  This went on for a few minutes.  I'm pretty sure our landlord is glad he lives a few blocks away.

The good news is we have found a place to rent month to month.  It is a small 2 bedroom house, but will be just fine for a couple of months.  We are still diligently looking for a house and hope to get one soon.  At least we can get back to some kind of normal.

They're exuberant and expressive! And, like their mom, irrepressible. Your description made me laugh- I can see and hear it.
