Girl Talk

Today was my first day having the School age kids at Daycare.. What Fun!!!
I love listening to them when they are talking.
Today I had the wee babe who is 11 months old now, A sweet boy who is 7year old boy(bless his heart), then the Girls.. They are 5, 7, 8, and 9 years old.. Now you know why I said bless his heart about the 7 year old boy.
The 7 and 9 year old girls were discussing jewelry, earrings in particular. They were talking about where they bought the earrings they had in their ears. Then proceeded to begin chatting about their Favorite Jewelry stores.. The 7 Year old excitedly tells that her 2 favorites are Penney's (I assume J.C. Penney's) and Claires.. I could see that at 7 Claires is great for accessorizing anything.
The 9 year old then says, Oh I have been to Claires but my favorite jewelry store is TIFFANY's... I am still giggling.. it cracked me up to hear a 9 year old say it.. Her momma has trained her well..

Tarz-Anna came for a short visit today.
One of my Daycare Mom's is a 4th grade teacher, if you live in our part of Ohio you want your kids to have her for a teacher. Trust me, they will never ever be bored, they will learn a lot and have fun.

Tarz-Anna used to be Tarzan...until one day she laid Eggs... Surprise she is a girl. The eggs were not fertilized so there were no little baby Iguana's running around. Tarz-Anna is a good size Iguana.. I think she looks prehistoric. The kiddos loved her. She is about 7 years old.

She belongs to daycare kiddo Chubba, remember he brought the bunnies,

they also have frogs, fish, turtles, a Mini Pony, 2 Mini Pygmy Goats (one is pregnant sorry, Ssh... don't tell Scott) Bunnies, 3 cats, a Huge Dog named Max, I am sure I have missed a few of the critters. Their house would be great fun. Its like a petting zoo.

Thanks for letting Tarz-Anna visit today Chubba.

3 years ago today...

Three Years ago today...

The Floor dropped out from under my feet,
The Sun stopped shining,
The Moon didn't rise as brightly,
My life changed drastically,

Three Years ago today..
The shining light of my life went dark,
The love of my life passed away from Cancer
Three Years ago today..

Robert Ferrell Jr... I miss you everyday, I am at peace knowing you are in a better place and no longer in horrible pain.
Thank You for being such a great part of my life.. You know what I always said, you were not Perfect and you could be a total Pain in the Behind... but you were my Pain in the Behind.
I miss you, and love you..

Kiddos Standing Still !!

Go Ahead Admit it You are wondering how I managed to get 7 kiddos to stand still on my back porch for almost an hour.
Ages 11 months to 6 years. All Standing Still.. You want to know don't you..
Its really easy !!!!Just Get one of these for the Day!!!!

The Excavator arrived a little before 11a.m. It is still here at almost 9p.m.
These guys have had to dig 2 huge holes in the yard.
The Best news is as of right this minute there is no more water going into my basement.
The Kiddos had the time of their lives watching the action.
I loved watching them Standing Still
