Our mom’s been kind of occupied…you see, school ended last week and we’ve been
So here’s the haps….
We started the week off by participating in a fishing derby. Mommy begged Grandpa, Uncle Andy and Uncle Andy’s friend, Jonathan, to come with us since she’s terrified of fish.
While we were learning how to cast our fishing lines and not pass out from complete boredom, she was practically fishing crawdads out of the water with her bare hands.
We didn’t end up catching any fish, which was a total bummer.
Grandpa said it was a good lesson in patience. We told him that there was a better lesson to be learned by him opening his wallet and buying us lunch afterwards.
On another day, our mom filled up a bucket of water and we “painted” the house…
We’ve also been playing in the water…
…as well as taking daily swimming lessons with Miss Chrissie. She makes us put our faces in the water, which makes us cry to the point where our bodies can no longer produce a healthy amount of mucus.
And, friends, that is a serious crime. Kids should always be able to unload buckets of snot from their nose any ole’ time they please.
The veggie garden is doing well, even though we trampled through it with our scooters.
Besides all the outdoorsy stuff, we’ve been going to the free movies and having playdates with friends.
At the end of each day, we’ve been completely wiped out…while Mommy sits at the kitchen table, staring at the wall and drinking a whole lot of “grape juice”.
She promised our Auntie that she’d help her write an article for a magazine…it’s due next week. Auntie came over last night to see how the article is coming along…I don’t think they got much done though because all we heard was a bunch of clinking glasses and laughter.
We found an empty bottle of “grape juice” on the kitchen counter in the morning.
Oh, and the baby birds came back for another visit…we have to be very careful where we stand, obviously.
Needless to say, our mom may not be visiting other blogs the rest of the week or writing her own posts, for that matter.
If it helps, she’s having serious blogging withdrawals…running around constantly, camera in hand, with the hopes of capturing something blog-worthy and gazing lovingly from afar at her laptop as she makes meals for us.
But don’t worry…she’ll be back soon. And we’re sure she’ll have lots of fun stories to share because, after all, she has US for blog fodder.
So don’t go running off too far…or we may have to hop on a plane and come live with you for a few days (and some of us still poop in our pants…just sayin)
The kids (aka “the spawn”)
