This week were learning about ants. Fun! We caught some ants in our bug catcher and looked at the closely. I do have to say that it was hard to catch them with out killing them. Sorry ants that are now in ant heaven. One of D's favorite songs and books is The Ants Go Marching. We read it and sing it a lot. D and A have really begun to get close. He really wanted her in this pic.
Sad lesson learned today- D found a baby robin in the neighbor's sandbox and picked it up. He held it a little too hard and it kind of died later. Sad post today- Dead ants and dead bird. Should I also say then that last week at ECFE they had some little minnows in a bucket for the kids to catch with nets and D squished one and killed it. My goodness. Needless to say we have had quite a few discussions about how to be gentle.

They love helping make bread. D spends most of his time making faces and monsters out of his and N usually uses his as a punching bag.
D and I got in a nice 1 1/2 hr long nap today. We both could have slept longer but we got a late start. Oh well.
The rest of the day we just kinda hung out and went grocery shopping. R and the kids made a tasty supper of shrimp, asparagus, baked potatoes, (sweet potato for N and me) and a great salad, if I do say so myself since, that is what I contributed to the meal. We of course had some yummy homemade bread to go along with it.
I forgot to mention that I did get some beautiful roses from my boys today and A came home from work with 3 Butterfingers for me. I am truly loved. It was a little suspicious however, that dishes still weren't done at 10:00 pm and no one seemed to notice that I was doing them until the very end. What's with that guys? I would have gladly done them earlier but you said, "No."
Lesson learned today- N learned that if you put an Arby's Roast Beef sammy in the microwave with the foil wrapper still on, it starts on fire within 3 seconds. Cool. No harm done and all is well. He said his sammy still tasted great.
