packing and things

So this week my assignment is to pack so we can move across the state in time for the boys to start school on Monday. So far I am getting most of the packing done with little to no help form the boys, no big surprise there. Today after letting them both know I thought they were lazy little slugs and watching TV all day and picking at each other was no help and they should go out side and do something. With in minutes the oldest boy comes in the house in tears and sobbing. What the heck is going on, I am thinking. Well turns out that both his bikes are gone. Not his only bike but both ,yes two, are gone. (one of the bikes he just got a few months ago for his birthday) He had rode one of the bikes this morning and left them both in the side yard and tonight they are gone. We were home all day the kids are running in and out of the house and apparently some one wanted the bikes more than our oldest. Now to me that takes a lot of nerve to "jack" something in daylight out of your fenced yard. Ugh so any way I need to pack up all our stuff and hope the next people who move in here do not get their things "jacked" from the yard.

Tribute to Will

Today we lost a beloved pet, Will the lizard. Our oldest son brought Will home after spending the night with a friend earlier this spring. The friend had found Will and decided that our oldest needed him. I was not at all excited about the arrival of Will because we have not had great success with frogs so I assumed the same about a lizard. Well soon enough Our oldest fell in love with Will and then so did the youngest son, I think the Dad had fallen for him also. While Dad was off working he was able to find some grub worms for Will we were happy to find something for him to eat. He was quite cute while he was eating ;) While we went camping I was able to take some pictures of Will. We had to warm his sand and his rock so he would not freeze. It was an interesting camping trip keeping the lizard warm. That was when I think i fell for him. He was quite cute. After he was done eating he would get all full of himself and stand up tall on his front feet. He was quiet, clean and not too much work. We are all going to miss Mr. Will.
