Visit To Mom and Dad's

Some recent adventures of Mom, Joe and Julie... Joe's ready for a ride. Wait a minute, Julie is coming too. Who is going to drive this thing? Wait, she's coming! It's Grandma! Let's get this show on the road! What happened to Joe? Goodness, fiddling with Grandpa King's tractors again! Going to plow the garden. Checking out Julie's work.

This is a video of a typical meal with the kids at Mom and Dad's. We don't get much eating done, but everyone leaves the table happy! Click on the arrow to see the video...

Just Another Day in Paradise



This is what happened at 9:10 this morning. Julie was walking and fell on a toy she was carrying. Just a little blood, a little crying, a little swelling and a check out for our dear RN neighbor, Paula.



All is well, just a little puffy first black eye. What a toughie.



By 9:45 a.m. we were in the van and on our way to Joe's first day of a 6 week tot camp. This is Joe after pick-up.

Joe's report:
MAMA: Joe, what did you do at school?
JOE: snack
M: What did you eat for snack?
J: mmmmmm...tretzels
M: Yum! Did you meet new friends?
J: (with excitement in stating-a-list-type-of-way) Mason (our neighbor friend)...Will...Relann...teacher
M: What fun! Did you read a book about dinosaurs?
J: u-hun
M: Did you sit when the teacher read the book?
J: No. Run.
M: Joe, you ran when the teacher read the book?
J: (big smile) yyeeeeeesssssss. Potty now!

Then he peed his pants. Will work on using the potty before leaving school.

All is well, I can't do anything about Joe running during story time and bless be the Lord I don't have worry about that, someone else is getting paid the big-bucks to deal with that one. One thing I do know: THIS MAMA LOVES SCHOOL.
