Jackson helping rake the leaves.
During the raking, I had a slight scare. I happened to glance down where the rake was and notice a little black head. I immediately thought it was a snake just because we have had snakes in our yard/neighborhood. I sent both kids out of the backyard and to see if any of our neighbors were home...of course they were not. I sat there contemplating what to do at which time Madeline chimes in "Mommy, just kill it" To which I replied, "How do I do that Madeline?" her reply "With the rake mommy" (as if to say, duh come on mom, you got this) So I sucked it up and put on my brave shoes and went back to raking the area where the "snake" was. After a few pull-backs of the rake, there was the little head again...another pull back of the rack revealed this little guy:
I also picked up some little flower seeds out of the dollar bin at one of my favorite stores and decided it would be fun for the kids to plant the seeds and watch them grow into flowers.
Speaking of pictures, I share a lot of pictures. I always have since I started this blog 3 years ago. Well, today as I was uploading, I got a notice that I used up all the 1GB of free space available for posting pictures...boo...sniff. Of course there was an offer to buy more space...are you kidding me? So, I looked into that (fearing it would be a ridiculous amount) but it was not, only $5. So I bought more space cause I just can not post without pictures. Has anyone else had this happen to them???
Hope that everyone had a great weekend!
