Here is a strange sight.

This is an amazing sight. Audi and Gabby this close together and no blood shed.

Gabby received and award at school for thoughtfulness and kindness. I asked the teacher if she was sure she had the correct student.

Gabby, Audi, Cassie, Eliza, Josie and Kierstyn with crazy hair and silly faces.

Three little Brownies. It only took me three hours to iron on all those patches.

First Meet

Gabby didn't win the trophy but she did get four ribbons. She did a great job at her first competition ever. Our next meet is in November in Columbia, MO. I can't wait!

The girls listen to a pep talk from the coach.

The team practices their beam routine before the judging starts.

Gabby is in deep concentration.
Gabby's best score was on the Vault 8.2. She received a 7.8 on floor routine and bars and a 7.65 on beam, she didn't fall off! I am so proud of her. She puts in a lot of hard work practicing three days a week at three hours a day. Congratulations Gabby, keep up the good work. I love you!

Welcome Sarin

This is our new addition, Sarin, as in serendipity. Don't ask me why all our birds look alike. Isn't he handsome?! He will not let us hold him yet but he has stopped hissing at me every time I put my hand in his cage. The day we brought him home I, stupidly, thought it would be a good idea to get him out of the cage. He flew up to the ceiling and found places to perch on top of framed pictured, the curtain rod and on top of the other birds cage. It took me and Brydie 20 minutes to capture him and get him back into his cage.

This is Sarin's cage. Henry and George like their new bird friend. George especially wants to spend all his time atop Sarin's cage. The girls say that they are in love. Let's hope not.

The true identity of Batman has been revealed. All this time I had no idea he lived right here under my own roof. IT'S JUAN! Who knew?

My father invited Juan over to help him out. Do you think any child labor laws were broken?

Our girl scout troop went to tour Sam's Bakery. We saw very big ovens and a walk-in freezer. Then we got to decorate a cookie and eat it. That was the best part.

Here Audi is decorating her cookie.

The girls got two new sets of bunk beds. My dad put them together, Juan helped. Poor Dad, I always got him working. He not only put these beds together but also put up new lights in the kids bedrooms and my bathroom. I had to put up new lights for the kids because I was afraid one might loose their head climbing into the top bunk! Juan got new bunk beds also, not that he sleeps in his room.

Well, this is what happens when you are an only boy living with three big sisters. You are dressed in drag against your will. They also put make-up on him. I said "no" to the finger nail polish!
There is an update on my life. It is pretty busy. I have been really busy with Girl Scout stuff, I am co-leader this year. Me and the leader both have really busy lives so I hope together we can manage the troop and have some fun with the girls.
