Night Mutterings

Due to some out of town guests staying here this week - Courtney has been relegated to our bedroom floor for the week. Last night she woke up as we were going to sleep.

Eric hunched over the end of the bed to look at her. "Are you real Daddy?" she asked. "Yeah, I'm real - you can go back to sleep now." he said. "OK, love you dad."

Sweet mutterings of the semi=unconcious.

Busy, busy, busy

Well we had our first "everyone at the cabin" weekend last weekend. And aside from a few family spats it was uneventful and relaxing for most. We had our 1st Annual Mandatory Nerf Baseball Game and almost all children boat ride!

The kids love being up there so I'm glad that summer is here. Hopefully it will be a summer with lots of memories with cousins, fun in the sun, and relaxation.

Andrew started his "Social Skills" class(therapy) today and has it twice a week for the next couple is going to be so different this summer...but I can't wait to see what we will find to occupy all this time.

I got a Whopper

Well today our children embarked on a new hobbie.....FISHING.
We started out a little rough, and learned that Daddy is a much better teacher than mommy in the casting dept. But it only took about 3o minutes and they were both casting like pro's. At least as far as you can cast with a 2 foot pole with a cartoon on the side.
The best news is, within a few hours they had both caught a fish all by themselves on those little tiny poles and they were soooo proud of themselves - it was awesome.

Who knows what tomorrow will hold - but for today we have two championship calabur kiddie fishers.

Opps she did it again...

After a long, long day of planting flowers out at the golf course, I crashed on the couch with my laptop and proceded to search for the ever lovin expensive tan tap shoes I'm looking for for Courtney. It has been a long day with the kids and I could tell Courtney is gettin a little desperate for some attention. She was pretty much refusing to go to bed and getting into trouble.

Eric went up to the kitchen for something and I hear Courtney say "They are too short, I need mommy to make them longer." My immediate thought was what is too short, she couldn't possibly cut her hair again. We had a fairly extensive conversation the last time she embarked upon her own cosmotology training. Well I was wrong. Sure enough, she chopped her bangs and then some. 1 inch bangs are no longer in style - hmmmm, what to do. After a little disciplining it was time for me to try and fix it. Now I only really know the Eric cut, the Andrew cut, the Luke cut and the Warren cut.....none of those are girls.....something new for me to learn.

So, we pretty much left the bangs and had to take off about 1 1/2 off the rest of her head. I'm not sure how it will look dry - my scissors are dull, but that's what she gets. I was awefully tempted to give her the Andrew cut just as a reminder that we don't ever ever ever ever cut our own hair. I had mercy and warned her that her next personally given haircut would end with mommy giving her a haircut like her brother. Think I'll follow through? Lets hope we don't have to find out.
