Okay, Okay

I realize the post below is long so I've learned a lesson not to go a week without posting something. I also tried to add some pics to break it up a little and make it a little less boring, but the site wasn't letting me for some reason. I still don't really know what I'm doing with this whole blog thing.

Here are a few pics I would have added. The first is the kids on the first day of school. Jensen so wanted to be going to school that day but she has to wait another week.

The second pic is Jackson with his missing tooth. He used to be a really cute kid...now he kind of looks like a criminal. :-)


Jim took Jackson and Jordan to the Museum of Natural History on Saturday to see the Body Worlds 3 exhibit. Jackson didn't quite get the concept and kept asking how all these people died like this. The exhibit was apparently insanely crowded but it was very quiet. Jim said most of the people were using the audio cassette things and, hence, weren't really talking. One of the parts of the exhibit showed a guy with an artificial hip. Jim's brother has an artificial hip so he was trying to make a connection with the kids and told them that their Uncle Steve broke his hip in a jet ski accident and had to have it replaced. Jackson looked up at him and asked "So, does that mean he can, like, take his leg off?" Jim just burst out laughing...in this room full of really quiet people. He said about 100 very serious museum goers turned and gave them a dirty look.

Jackson sooo looks like Jim in that picture! (and not because you said he looks like a criminal! and he doesn't by the way- everyone was talking about how adorable all your kids were after the party!)

I'm cracking up at Jim taking the kids to that exhibit- I've wondered about it, but can't bring myself to go.

Anytime you need some space, come on by! And 72... man I'd be in heaven!

Hope you girlies had fun with your pedis today...
