complete freshness.........

I cant help but get a little excited on every other Thursday. Bed washin' day. I remember that my mom would wash all the beds every week, not sure how she had time for that. Since the boys take a bath every evening before hopping into bed, I don't find weekly bed washes completely necessary. So there was complete freshness today as I washed the sheets and made the beds with a nice cool breeze comming through the windows. I can't wait to tuck them into a nice clean bed tonight. I'm sure they will share the same excitement and thank me many, many times for a clean bed. HAHA

Never say never.....

Never. That's what I said when some friends said their kid was going out for 3rd grade tackle football. What I was thinking was "All these moron parents who think they have to do everything." Why in the world would you want to start so early? We never touched a football or volleyball until 7th grade. After some discussion, we decided to give it a try. It has been alot of fun for Andrew and he has learned alot about how the game is played. The coaches seem to be doing a great job of teaching them and not getting to fired up. So, never say never or it will come back to bite you in the butt!!

Ole' Black Joe

Ringo (Jills last cat) has been replaced. Ringo died a few weeks ago as he was walking to eat breakfast out of his bowl. Poor, Poor Ringo. What a way to die-on your way to breakfast. To bad he couldn't have had one last meal. Anyway, after an appropriate funeral and a special cat prayer we were on the search for another cat. Ringo has been replaced with Ole' Black Joe. The boys love Joe, especially Jack.
