Molasses, Boys, Bunnies, and a Baby

Do you ever have days you feel like you're moving through molasses?  Like time goes by but nothing gets done?  Or is it just me?

We have a guest this week.  Well, for a few hours a day this week.

Her mom is teaching a drama camp and so this happy little two-months-old face is smiling at me.  And at Gunnar, who is - as usual - doting on the baby.

Wyatt called from flight encampment last night.  He sounds wonderful.  Completely in his element.  

Apparently he'll be taking a test this evening - the Pre-Solo Written Test - which must be passed in order to solo.  He sounded positive, not cocky, but confident.  Like he has expanded to fill the space.  I'm so glad he's doing this.

Meanwhile, back at the ranch...

The bunnies are growing.  They get cuter every day.  We call the biggest one George.

Hard to tell these two apart unless they're side by side.  I think this one is Zander (Alexander).

And last but not least, little Louis.  He was so much smaller than the others we weren't sure he'd thrive, but he's doing just fine.  Still smaller, but catching up.

Can you tell that Louis is smaller than his brothers?  I love how you can hold all three of them in one hand... but not for long.

Concentrated cuteness.

I can hear the sweet pride in your voice for Wyatt. Mama's live for times like that, huh? :)

I'm not sure I can take all the cuteness in this post though. Baby, bunnies, oh my and a gentle Gunner. Too much.

I'm going to have to pick your brain about your boys flying. My Benjamin is leaning more and more toward being a missionary pilot, and I need all the wisdom I can get!

Those bunnies are so cute, are they named after the royal baby?

Yep. Born the same day, so temporarily named after the prince. We'll give them away in a few weeks and their new owners can pick a permanent name :D
