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!
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. :)
Home School is awesome! :)
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.
Poor little bird, high up in the tree.
