Nine boys at the zoo?

What are we crazy!  For some reason our MOPS group is LOADED with boys, I mean they must outnumber the girls 5 to 1, when I bring clothes to pass along from Ez & Tobin, they get snatched up in minutes!

Kashton was visiting and I wanted to take him to the zoo so invited Audra (has 3 boys of her own) and she thought Beth might like to join us too (she has 4 boys, one of which decided to stay with his aunt instead).  So, Mari was hanging out with Alyssa, Noelle & Grandma, and with Kashton with us, I had 3 boys to add to the mix.

This picture cracks me up, see the one on the end, he didn’t want to be in the picture.  Oh, the age range was 18 months to 7 years.

I’m admiring the colors-this will make a good scrapbook page!

You were born when?

I had one of those eye-opening, shocking experiences last night.  We had our MOPS steering meeting last night and as part of an ice-breaker we had to pull a coin out of our purse and say what we were doing the year the coin was minted.  Beth’s turn comes-it was 1986 “Well, I was 6 years old so I was probably playing with my best friend Carrie”.  “Wait, you were only 6 years old in 1986?!?”  Ten minutes later (as it REALLY sinks in), “really, you were 6 years old in 1986 (in my head I”m doing the math, born in 1980-I know, tough math), I had already graduated from high school in 1986!”.  Now, it’s not that I thought Beth was older, I just didn’t realize I was THAT old!  And, as I’m writing this I’m realizing that there are kids in Tobin’s class whose parents are probably 20 years younger than me!  Ughhh!  I’m thankful that I still feel young and that our kids keep us feeling young:)

And, a picture (since I can’t post without one!) of our new pet . . .

He’s not actually in the house, but has taken up residence on the window of our laundry room-been there for 3 days:)
