During the last year of my grandmothers life I would see her a lot. I was there every week to clean her house, take her grocery shopping and take her to her doctor appointments during that time I learned a lot from her. One of the things she told me about is when my dad was a little boy. She told me some funny story's about him. One of those story's was about her doing the laundry and always finding surprises in his pockets, once he had a whole handful of bees that he had caught and brought home to show her but had forgotten about. She found them! Just as I am sure anyone with boys knows when doing laundry there are always surprises. I have found rocks, money, rocks, trash I mean treasures that have been discovered somewhere, candy and rocks. Today I opened the washer to remove the cloths and I found legos, not just 2 or 3 but like 45 or 50 lego pieces. After laughing and collecting them. I ask "how did these get in the wash", the response, "that was my airplane, I was hiding it in the cloths. You washed it." Never thought I would find a whole load of legos. I guess they are nice and shiny now.
Today was an exciting day but also a sad day for this mom. Mr. Football went to the fourth grade yesterday. Could I really be that old??? Is he really that old???? It is hard when my kids go to kindergarten but first grade is harder for me. Today my cheerleader left the car in the morning and didn't come back until after school. When did she grow up? When did they grow up. I sure love them a lot!! Now, Wild Man it is just me and you. (Wild Man looked around for the kids a lot today, I could tell he was missing them just as much as me)
Have you been wondering what happened to us????????? SUMMER!!!! The Johnson house enjoyed 9 weeks of summer. See some of the things we did. You might have to go into older post because we filled up the 9 weeks with swimming, lunch at the park, field trips, sleepovers, learning and more............. Check it out! Bowling
Wild Man cheered for everyone. Strike, gutterball or ball in the wrong lane, he cheered dis heart out. He loved it
When I told the Cheerleader to bring socks if she was wearing flip flops I thought she would put them in the diaper (you know it is where all the treasures go) but when we arrived this was the sight!!! Gotta love it.
