It is official. The 1 stop-light town that son #1 attends school in no longer has a stop-light. It has been converted to a 4-way red flashing stop. Guess the town’s officials thought the stop-light was just too much for the tiny community.
I took this picture of the Old Guy out the back door. He was wanting some attention.
Son #1 and Toddler Terror at 8:30 am Saturday morning. Son #1 made the bike he is riding on out of parts from his old bikes. He calls it his ‘trick bike’. He has a chopper bike and a Mongoose bike. I asked him why he could not do tricks on his Mongoose bike, which is made specifically for such things, he said he didnt want to tear it up, it was his good bike….? huh?
Son #1 is grounded from his dirt-bike for 2 weeks. I caught him on the county road riding without his helmet. A BIG no-no, which he knows. 1 more week to go, too bad for him! I’ll be glad when he tears it up again and it is broke down….I am such a mean mother.
Sometimes, the testosterone level in my house is just too much for me. Can it reach a toxic level? Because, me being surrounded by all this maleness is really starting to get on my nerves…..Ithink Ill get a fish, a female fish. Then maybe I wont feel so out-numbered.
Last week hubby and I discussed what kind of landscaping ideas each of us had for our new yard. Spring is a long ways off so we have a lot of time to plan and do a little bit of research about a variety of shrubs, trees, ect. We are planning on planting a lot of SUCCULENTS (near the house) and some Trees of Rapid Growth. I grew up in N.Michigan where apple trees are abundant. I am thinking about planting a few of them too, along with some hardy pines. Nothing beats the smell of pines….
TT doing one of his favorite things.
More jumping and bouncing…all before 9 am. The fun never stops at my house. Yipeeeee…………..
