The Logic of an Almost 10-Year-Old

Yesterday, Travis said something really funny during Church. I thought about writing it down for blackmail later use, but I was too lazy. I was positive I would remember it forever, so I put my trust in my awesome memory and totally forgot the really funny thing he said.

Fortunately for Travis, I did write down a couple of conversations that we had a few weeks ago during church. What is it about church that brings out the funny in Travis?

The back story on the first funny- Travis had to change schools a couple of years ago from Hillcrest to Oak Harbor Elementary. He still complains about it sometimes and remembers Hillcrest through rose colored glasses.

Travis "Remember when "So n so" knocked my tooth out in first grade?"

Me "See! Hillcrest had bullies too!"

Travis "Yeah, but they were nice bullies!"


Travis "Did you have a good childhood growing up?"

Me "Sure, most of the time. How is yours going?"

Travis "It's good, except for taxes."

The Most Wonderful Time of the Year!


Here is Mom's yearly "Back to School Lineup"
Yep, my two younger boys wear uniforms.

Nathan 8th Grade, look at how excited he is!!!

Travis 4th Grade, Yeah school!

Marcus Kindergarten!!!!!
Who do you think was the most excited?

Cool New Backpacks

My Baby's first day of school. I thought for sure I was going to cry, but I didn't.
Marcus was too excited, and his excitement was contagious. Actually he is very happy in this picture, I really told him not to smile and cheese everything up like he usually does.

What's Been on My Mind and Other Stuff

I was a really bad Mom today. I made my boys cry by making them watch this. Well Marcus didn't cry, but the other two did. I remember listening to this song a lot has a kid.

How do my three sons to through so many pairs of socks in a week, and why do they keep wearing them outside, and why can they always be found on the floor in dirty little "sock balls"?

I have never met anyone who has lived in Delaware. I think that is the only state I can say that about.

I need to go pick me some blackberries soon.

I need a new freezer for all my berries.

My kids don't like berry pies, WEIRD!

School starts this Thursday, that is very late.

One good thing (IMHO) about school starting so late this year is the boys won't have to watch this.

Picking out a good watermelon still eludes me, but sometimes I get lucky.

I ate the last peach yesterday.

Good Intentions

I bought some big, beautiful peaches last week. I was planning on making a pie. They weren't exactly ripe, so I left them on the counter. I am now down to two peaches. They are still hard, but the others went moldy on me.

So much for pie!
