I'm going to just ramble a bit today.. I'll jump back in on the "memes" later this week. I wanted to share a little "funny" on our Zach. (He's the 10 year old)
Okay... so the other day we'd been in and out cleaning and doing yard work. Zach had gone out the back door for something and came back in pretty quickly telling me he'd seen "a rat with no tail."
See, we have strange little creatures all around us. (We live out in the country - well, kinda) Usually the way we find most of those
creepy, I mean, poor little creatures, they've already fallen in our pool. We've pulled out a few baby snakes (dead ones, they'd been in the skimmer a while), a bat, a few mice, a mole or two, lizards, a bird.. hhmmm... can't think of anything else at the moment. (That's enough though, RIGHT?) ICK! We also have every bug known to man stumble over into the cement pond, I mean pool. (Remember the Beverly Hillbillies?? LOL!!) Oh... sorry... ADD kicked in.. forgot where I was going with that! O=-)
SOOOOOOOO... Zach comes in to tell me that he saw the rat with no tail. The next thing I know he's taken a piece of cheese out and has put it on the concrete. I asked what he planned to do with that and he told me he was going to catch him. (EEEEEEEEWWWWWWWWWWWW) After Zach told Link (my hubby - his daddy) about the weird little rat, Link remembered that he'd seen this little creature too. He told Zach it was a baby RABBIT! (I'm thinking it's time to take this kid to the eye doctor!???) HA!!!
I wish I'd have gotten a picture of the cute little thing, but my guy folks were too excited about trying to CATCH him. (He was ADORABLE)
I'm still trying to figure out how he could've mistaken what it was? Cute bunny??? (AAAWWWWWWWW)
...... RAT??? (EEEEEKKKKKKKKKKKKKK!!!!) I'd have NO problems telling the difference, would YOU?
Okay, I'm off to set up an appointment with the eye doctor. (HeeHee) JUST KIDDING! Seriously though, I'm going to go get these boys started on their school work. Before you go I'd like to invite you to read over an email I received from the "American Family Association," then if you'd like you can sign the petition below. =-)
Thanks SO MUCH for stopping by! =-)
The rights of Christians are under attack again! Consider what has happened just in the last week:
In New Jersey, East Brunswick High School officials told football coach Marcus Borden he cannot kneel and bow his head while members of his team have a student-led pre-game prayer. (source)
- In Wisconsin’s Tomah Area School District, a teacher refused to give a student identified only as A.T. a grade on an art project because his work included "John 3:16" as well as "A sign of love." However, Buddha, Hindu and sorcerers are considered “approved” forms of art by the school. (source)
- In Mt. Vernon, Ohio, school leaders told teacher John Freshwater he must put his Bible out of sight when students are in his room. Mr. Freshwater has refused to do so. He has had a Bible on his desk for the past 18 years. (source)
Join AFA in expressing appreciation to the two teachers and student mentioned above for their bold stand. Despite overwhelming pressure, Marcus, A.T. and John are standing firm in defending our rights.
Sign our “Petition of Appreciation!”. Help us gather one million signatures supporting these three individuals for standing strong for our religious freedoms. AFA will present a Plaque of Appreciation to each of them, which will include your name and state (no address).
