Good-Bye February!

Good-Bye February!

Thank you February for all the great memories.  Month number two of 2013 was not too bad at all.  :)

Welcome to March!  I am looking forward to some nicer weather so we can get back to our daily biking adventures!

My 365...

Thursday, what are you doing here already?  I was not finished with Wednesday!

I was making breakfast for Blake and Casey this morning, some cheesy scrambled eggs, and whole grain muffins, when Blake spotted the wishbone from Thanksgiving still sitting on the windowsill drying.  I am pretty sure after 3 months, the darn thing is pretty crispy.

"Mom, can we break the wishbone and make a wish now?"

"Sure honey, grab one end and pull...but make a wish first."

We each grabbed an end of the wishbone, and in true "Thanksgiving" fashion, pulled it apart.


The darn thing shattered, and pieces flew everywhere!  Poor Blake was pelted in the face with flying fragments of wishbone.  I am thankful he was not hit in the eye.

I did get the largest piece of the fragments that remained intact.

"What did you wish for mom?"

"I wished that you get your wish honey."

Definitely a "win win" for my favorite 11 year old.  :)
"Uhmm ouch.  Wishbones should come with a warning label!"
"Thank you mama."
Blake moved his desk down stairs, so now he and I work and play via Skype.  This afternoon, he was running around the front yard on my old HTC EVO, Skyping with me while we went over his spelling list for the

Home School is awesome!  :)
 Every now and then Princess Yoshi Skypes with me too.  :)

 "No, over here mama.  Focus!"
 "Pay attention to me mama, not Giant Nose of Doom over there!"
 "Am I going to have to take that camera away from you?  Focus woman!"

Princess Yoshi thought my whole grain muffins were delicious."

My 365...

I have always thought my oldest son Garrett should be a firefighter because he is always coming to the rescue of everyone...and everything...he meets.  Today it was a beautiful little bird in distress.

He was in the front yard with Kori, relaxing a bit before they had to leave for class, when he spotted a bird high up in the tree that had something hanging from its little foot.  When he looked closer, he realized it was a mouse trap.  Doing what Garrett does best, he sprang into action.  He got the ladder and decided to try to make his way to the injured bird, but it got startled and flew even higher into the tree.  He adjusted the ladder and tried again to reach it.  Just when Garrett got up in the tree, the bird was startled enough that it shook free of the mouse trap and flew away.

We were so worried that we were going to find the trap, still with the little bird's foot attached, but thankfully that was not the case.  They little birdie flew off with all of its parts intact!  Hopefully it will heal okay.  Yay Garrett!

My son Garrett is such a big tough guy, with a warm sweet heart the size of Texas.  He has been that way since he was a little boy.  What an awesome guy he is. <3 I know a little bird flying around Idaho today that would completely agree!  :)

Happy Wednesday planet.  Hope your day has been awesome.
Oh course I had my camera ready...I always do.  :)

Poor little bird, high up in the tree.
 I have never seen anything like it.  :(
 Garrett to the rescue.

 Free at last!
  See ya little bird.

Feeling a little under the weather today.  Tomorrow will be better.  :)

Son Casey drew this picture of my favorite car for me free hand.  Pretty amazing son!
I went outside this evening to see the moon, and the stars are so bright!  I managed to capture Orion.  Can you see him?

 A beautiful day in Boise today.
The flowers in the garden are ready for Spring.
They aren't afraid of a little last minute snow.

A bike ride to Subway to get dinner.
Dinner is served.
