Oh! There you are! Carry on.

School Functions (Pics from the last school year)

Sometimes I think of myself as an organized person who's got her stuff together. And other times .... I'm honest with myself. I am so not that woman.

Better late than never - that's what I always say! No really, I say that a lot.

Here are some pics from Gabriel's school carnival.
G with a couple of his buddies: Joshua and Morgan.

There was a contest to "dunk" the principal. The smirk on his face is of the man who retired at the end of the year! He will be missed as principal, but his successor - or successoress - is the (former) Vice Principal. Surely it will be a smooth transition.
The kinder PTA program. It was so cute - if it were a confection, it would have been delicious!


Finally, a recap of Kindergarten:

Insert you own question to ask your kid---What do you like best about your brother?
Ethan: I can't do that. I like him, ok?
Gabriel: When he takes care of me. (What? How does HE take care of YOU?) Well, when we were downstairs and he popped me on my head and I got hurt, he told me it would be ok.

Wisdom from an old pop

Jack LaLanne never goes out of style and his wisdom is always relevant! Enjoy!!!

Father's Day Meme

From the kyootest kyooty in all of Canada...

1. What does Daddy wear for work?
Ethan: work clothes
Gabriel: a nice suit (he really doesn't - his company's culture is VERY laid back. Ie. sandals and shorts)

2. Where does Daddy work?
Ethan: at work
Gabriel: Rackspace

3. What’s Daddy’s job?
Ethan: His job is to go to work. (duh)
Gabriel: Going on the computer.

4. What does Daddy do at work?
Ethan: make money
Gabriel: Ask questions to his boss. (I don't think he will like this answer)

5. What does Daddy do at lunch?
Ethan: Eat dinner.
Gabriel: Eat ribs.

Yes, my hubs works in technology. Rackspace is an internet hosting company. When asked what he does there, I just tell people that he makes the internet go. Noticed a lot of these memes included an IT dad - perhaps there should be a support group for families of IT dads. I don't know about yall, but my guy is on call 24/7 and he is often called in the wee hours.

If you want to be tagged, consider yourself tagged!

Happy Father's Day!

Psalm 127:3-5 (New International Version)

3 Sons are a heritage from the LORD,
children a reward from him.

4 Like arrows in the hands of a warrior
are sons born in one's youth.

5 Blessed is the man
whose quiver is full of them.
They will not be put to shame
when they contend with their enemies in the gate.

How to Irritate Your Mother

STEP 1. Jump on her while she is sleeping and invite your brother to do the same.

STEP 2. Tackle your brother (on top of your mother).

STEP 3. Pin your brother down and laugh hysterically while he tries to get up.

STEP 4. Repeatedly ask your brother - in your loudest speaking voice - why he is hitting himself. Alternately, ask why he smells like poo poo or if he is, indeed, made of poo poo.

Note: It is critical to remove your "listening ears" prior to this exercise in the event that your mother screams at you to get off of her and / or get out of her room.

Happy first day of summer!
