"But I can't go to school in the car!! I have to go on the bus!!"
They distracted her with worm finding. And picking the nose of the tree man in our front yard.
I am so proud of that kid...
You are 6 years old. Where did the time go? What a big man you are. I love that you are so independent and "grown up". I love that you are reading and that you read every sign and package you see out loud, to me. I love that nothing holds you back, that you always find a way to be included in everything. I love that you are a popular dude at school and in the neighborhood and that you do not abuse the priveledge. I love that when given the choice of a big honkin' birthday party with a magician and everything that you decided to invite a few friends to see a movie and go out for pizza instead (thus saving Mom billions of dollars and tons of work!) I do not love that I forgot to bring the camera to this event therefore missing out on the pictures of you and your friends brandishing imaginary light sabers all through the movie and dinner.
I love that you ask me "Do you know what?" and when I say "What?" you say "Chicken Butt." 1000 times a day. Thanks for that...

"Hey...what's in there?"
Ewww...don't touch the piggies...
And there you have it...our morning visit to the zoo which took exactly 10 minutes because she ran through the entire thing at full speed. But isn't she cute...

Goofing around with buddies in the hot tub.
Playing on the water slide.Water balloon fights.Pinata.
and Dress Up?!?
Yes...the boys thought it would be funny to dress up in my daughter's dress up clothes and pretend they were "Grandmas". Of course I took pictures because some day, they will be teenagers, and I will need ammo baby...can't wait...
But, we did tear out our enclosed porch and raise the floor up the level of our house. It was something we have wanted to do for so long now and with Austin needing to be able to get in and out alone, it was definitely time. Of course the project that was supposed to take a few weeks turned into the terminal project and is still going on. So here are some photos of it in progress.
And here is a photo of what my children had to do the whole time we were demolishing things. Poor things.
