5 of them, 6 and under.

another garage sale find.....

$2 bird feeder. It was brand new! It has a 2 way mirror so the kids can look at the birds eating without the bird seeing them. It was so cool to watch the kids' faces, as today for the first time the birds found the feeder and used it. Suzy was kinda scared at first- thinking the bird would come right through the glass. The first bird must have really had a bird brain, because the silly thing kept banging right into the glass as if to try to kiss itself. It seriously just kept banging it's head against the mirror.



Today rather than couch swap with the neighbors we swapped kids. I had Amee's kids for the day...and tonight Amee' helped us out and took the kids tonight.

Here's the line up....Jack (5), Abigail (6), William (4), Aden (3), and Suzy (1) And actually they played really well together! It went well. Not well enough to reverse the V and have another baby. But well for having 5 kids 6 and under.

Jack and Abby are in the same class at school. Here they are waiting for the bus. They never lack for entertainment when they are together. Abby found a caterpillar and started to talk to her little friend. When she asked Jack if he wanted to hold it...he hesitated but took it. I HAVE NEVER SEEN JACK TOUCH A CATERPILLAR! He was truly trying to impress the the lady friend. In the above picture he even looks as if he might be enjoying holding the insect. However he has never been one to try new things (including food, holding pets, etc), then again I don't see him at school around his peers as much. I think I got a little picture today of him and a positive aspect of peer pressure. Maybe I'll invite Abby over next time we have green beans for supper. Because green vegetables in general cause Jack to go into full "I'm not dying on this hill" mode. I have no idea whatsoever where that boy gets his strong will or dislike for certain green foods. I for one love green beans. However, don't even think of putting me within sniffing distance of salad or the like.

quote of the day:

When picking up the kids tonight from Amee's house, William comes down from being upstairs and reports....


"the ladies won't let us into their room"


I find it funny he called his 7 year old sister and her friend.... "ladies"....but wow what a ladies man.

I like the 'ladies' comment! Have Jack talk to Kim, because she never ate green beans or peas. She like to stuff them down the side of our kitchen chairs!!!! or go to the bathroom during dinner and thrown them in the trash!!! original, right? have a great weekend!
I sure enjoy reading your blog...but don't always comment

Cute bird feeder. You oughta talk to my mom about those. She doesn't have any mirrored ones, but she likes the birds and lures them to her yard as much as possible.

What a fun little bird feeder. We have a smaller one similar to that on our kitchen window and the kids love watching them when they're eating their breakfast in the morning.
