So we went to do something super cool last week. We have somebody here on this base working with local wildlife. His name is Dr. Glassy and I mentioned him before when he came to see the kids in their preschool with a few animals. But going to his place, where he keeps all the animals, was different. Since it wasn’t a whole class he had time to explain more things to us, we had time to see more animals and even cuddle them. Well, only one. Because let’s face it, who wants to cuddle a rattle snake? Or a black widow? Or a brown recluse? I certainly don’t. Never. Ever. But a white owl? I was in heaven and so were the kids
I joined a new challenge group and it looks like it’s going to be a lot of fun! There’s a theme for each month and we take ten photos and post them. This months theme was hair. That’s definitely a challenge when you have boys and no flowy movie star hair yourself. But we managed 5. That’s better than nothing, right?
My baby turned 4. School is done until August. We went to the pool. We’re eating lots of ice cream. The kids are sick now, you gotta kick off summer break the right way, right? We also found out we’re not moving until the end of the year. Thanks Army. So, what am I gonna do with these dudes for the whole summer? It’s gonna be interesting…so wish me luck Oh, and by the way, who knew they made ipad apps for cats???
Go check out the wonderful Susan and see what she has been up to
I had the pleasure of photographing little M and her mom. I arrived when M was still napping, giving me the chance to capture just that. It wasn’t too long until she woke up though and then it was all smiles She was really hamming it up for the camera, but as soon as she saw water and bubbles, she was too busy to pay attention to much else
Thank you for letting me be a part of your day and letting me freeze time just a little bit for you
My baby turned 4 yesterday. My baby! Sometimes I really don’t know where time went, but other days time just doesn’t seem to pass at all. You know the drill. But yesterday did come too fast. They’re getting bigger and smarter and louder. But I promise to always kiss you goodbye in front of your school and watch you walk through the doors. Always. Get it? There’s no way around it. So make peace with it, buddy
Yesterday the dudes took over and did the things that I do for them every day. They did have a slightly different approach, but who cares, right?
The science of making pancakes from scratch.
He still thinks doing dishes is fun.
We can’t forget Mr. Grouper
About a week ago our family grew. By one more dude. No, I wasn’t pregnant. We adopted. A cat. None of this was planned. We went shopping in town, which is 1 1/2 hours away and sometimes, we take the dudes to the pet store to look at the dragons. The store was packed when we walked in. We walked right into adoption weekend! What? So we did what every sane parent would do. We went into the cat room and cuddled. A lot. Then it was time to go. The kids water level started to rise by the millisecond. Then the unthinkable happened. The hubs said, hey, let’s just get a cat.
So 10 pages, 5 signatures and $300 later we welcomed Mr. Grouper to our family ♥
So far, he’s doing pretty well considering the noise level in our house. He likes to sleep in odd places, like behind the washer and inside the closet in the toy room, he already ate half of our dinner we accidentally left on the counter and threw up a hairball which caused some pretty weird expressions on the dudes faces. I guess, it didn’t take him long to be at home with us ♥
