More Reptiles

The other day Sadie came running across the street telling JC and I "You guys gotta come see the snake Little Harvey has" I walked back over with her and Jordyn to find Little Harvey in the back of the truck holding a snake. Sadie was scared to death, much to Little Harv's delight, of it right at first but soon got over her fears enough to carry it back to our house to show Cody and Dad.

Cody thought that it was the best thing ever, the poor snake kept getting squished but never bit or even acted like it cared. Jordyn would not have a thing to do with it. Thanks Harvey for sharing your snake with us!!

JC is out of town this weekend so I told the girls that we would do something fun. I try to do this when he leaves over the weekend, which is not very often he usually is gone during the week.

We ordered pizza and had a picnic in the family room (Cody was invited to this part) Then we rented a movie, Mr. Magorium's Wonder Emporium. We all got in our PJ's and put Cody to bed. We climbed into my bed for our late night movie while enjoying some Ben and Jerry's Strawberry Cheese Cake and Chocolate Fudge Brownie ice cream. We had lots of fun and it makes the girls feel special I love them tons, it is fun to be with them as they get older!

Kids, Lizards and Frogs oh my.

Aug 08 003

Okay most of you know that I babysit, right? Well I didn't all through the summer it was so nice to go to the pool and to swim lessons and hang out all day in my grubby clothes, clean and get ready for the day when I was good and ready. Run downtown, grab a coke and walk through Wilbur's in peace. Well those days are over. I started sitting again last Monday.

I have 5 little ones 3 and under for a good part of the day, they are the most calm, sweet kids you ever have seen (I could not have got an easier bunch but it is still kaos) I have just enough time in the morning to get Sadie ready and off to school and slap some make up on my face and get Jordyn breakfast before my troops start rolling in and it starts. It really is fun and they are good sweet kids

This morning Jordyn and I found a little lizard on the house so I caught it to show her and Cody, Jordyn played with it for a while then decided that it scared her and started to "wriggle" and "scream" so Cody wanted to play with it he thought that it was the coolest thing ever I put it on her shirt and he ran around the yard with it for about 30 min

When Sadie got home from school today and after all the kids went home I found a cute little frog. They all love it but Cody is a little scared of it, strange since he like the lizard so well, here are some pictures they are still out playing with it poor thing...

She Made It!!


Well we or should I say Sadie, made it through her first week of being a first grader with with flying colors.

The first day of school Sadie woke up at 5:30 am, after not being able to fall asleep that night till about 10 or 10:30. She was bright eyed and bushy tailed, me not so much. All morning she asked "can you take me now mom" "is it time to go yet" we did not leave till about 8 so it was a long morning.

She has had a homework assignments all week long. Sadie has found a new friend on our block, so they have played together twice this week and she has another friend over now, she is quite the socialite.

The only bump that she had was yesterday when we got a phone call telling us someone had stepped on Sadie's new glasses and broke them other then that it was a wonderful week!

Jordyn starts her preschool Sept 9th so I will post something for her then.
