For my niece

Our sweet niece asked us to adopt a neighbor hood cat from Texas. They could not leave her behind knowing the outcome for her would not be good. We of course could not say no. She is a sweet kitty and we don't mind adding her to our family.

Well gotta put hubby on here.

If I am going to talk about old people trying to act young I can't leave this out. Hubby is a lot braver than I am. Our nephew has a ripstick and of course Barry has to try this new thing out. He is getting pretty good at this thing and is now requesting one for Christmas. I thought I only had 2 kids. Guess I can't leave the big one out. I imagine I will spend the next few years in the ER with ALL of the boys and all of the stitches and broken limbs to come.

Old people and the trampoline :o)

Barry's grandmother was here for a visit along with our niece from North Carolina. Had a little fun one night on the trampoline. His grandmother a 72 yr old woman got up there and jumped. I was a little on the nervous side that we would end up in the ER. Then Andra my mother in law jumped and took a fall. My father in law also took a turn. The big kids and little kids had a blast. Pretty funny watching old people try to be young. Can't talk too much that trampoline wears me out! Guess I am getting old.:o)

Learning to write

This summer we are still doing school work. Brenden doesn't mind though because it is mommy time and at his age everything is fun. We were on the letter e and since that is the hardest letter he has had to write so far I wanted to show him why it is so important for him to learn how. He has 2 in his name. If he wants to write his name he has to learn the letter e. I really like how Abeka uses dots for the starting point of a letter. That is extremely helpful. I am not sure that I would have thought of that one. If you look at his e's you can see his dots.
