It's Thursday.

I am a den leader in cub scouts. I have been teaching my kids that it's more important to be a good person than it is to be cool. So, I was surprised at how sad I felt when I realized that I am not the cool leader. We had an activity with all the boys, and I was one of the drivers. NOBODY wanted to ride with me, and the kids that had to ride in my car were visibly disappointed. But at least we got a lot of food for the food bank...

I took Sadie to Pier One yesterday. She kept pointing at things and saying, "pity." It was sooo cute!

Bill and I were trying to plan a menu the other night.

Bill: I think we should have bacon wrapped appetizers.
Me: What is it that you want to wrap in bacon?
Bill: I don't think it really matters.

Typical man...

I found Sadie licking the kitchen floor a little while ago. There was part of a smashed chocolate chip cookie stuck to the floor. Now I am wondering which of the kids got into the cookies before school...

Sometimes I regret getting Avery a desk full of art supplies. There are always little papers and other messes all over her room. (And frequently all over the rest of the house.) But it's so cute how excited she gets about all her projects and her books that she has been writing lately.

Preston said, "I don't think I really know that many twins. I think I only know two or three." Then we started counting all the ones from his old school, his new school, and church, and he knows at least twelve sets of twins!

Carter just remembered that he had an erector set. At least he isn't always asking if he can play the wii or the ipad or the computer since his discovery. But there are little parts all over our house that is supposed to be baby-proofed. Good thing I had already planned to clean the house all day...


  1. That happened to me when I was camp director for the Young Women a few years ago. Nobody would ride in my car. They literally squished 14 girls into two cars and I drove by myself.

  2. I love your stories- I come to your blog for my daily dose of smiles. Keep them coming!! and you are WAY cool.

  3. I tend to agree with Bill about bacon-wrapped appetizers....
