~I can't believe it's August already! In a few short weeks we will go from the carefree days of summer to the rigid school schedule. Although the kids seem to be excited about getting back to school I am not ready for it.
~ I've been enjoying my mornings sitting on the patio watching the kids play while the sun peeks through the giant spruce in our backyard. Speaking of the spruce, when I was a little girl, it was one of our family Christmas trees. It now towers over everything in our neighborhood including our house. We have scheduled to have it cut down. Lately, I have been having second thoughts. I guess we'll have to think about it some more.
~My sister is "home" visiting from Kansas. I haven't seen her yet and I can't wait. I miss her.
~ Lately, Stella has been a super bug catcher. She has found six Praying Mantis so far this summer! She has now started digging to find bugs.
~It's raining today. I guess I'll do laundry.
~Felicia has really had me laughing this week. A few days ago, my Dad was visiting and talking about his old security job at a strip mine. He referred to it as the strip. Felicia leaned over and whispered to me. " Eww, I had no idea Poppy was a male stripper!" Hahaha! Excuse me while I try to bleach that image from memory! The next day she was helping to clean the kitchen and asked if it would be okay for her to use one of those "S.O.B. Pads". That kid cracks me up!
~The kids are all still asleep including the little boy that I am watching today and it is almost 9:00 am. That NEVER happens. It's too quiet....and I spoke too soon. Here comes Stella! I guess on that note, my random ramblings are finished. Have a great day!
