It is Sunday night and as usual the kids are in bed and Chris and I just sat down and are exhausted and sore. We were outside ALL day yesterday working in the yard. I will have to post pictures of that later. I will say though...it looks GREAT!!!!!! I love spring/summer. I love looking out our front window and seeing flowers, colors, and sunshine.
However, if you ask our kids about this weekend I'm sure their first response would be, "we found a snake." Chris was on the side of our house cleaning out underneath the rose bush. He was clearing some stuff out and almost picked something up and then realized it was moving. He yelled, "bring me a shovel quick." I knew then it was something major but thought maybe a big spider or something. But no, it was a brown snake about 14 inches long. It freaked Chris out a little...he NEVER gets freaked out. The kids kept asking (after Chris chopped his head off) why the snake kept moving. I was really proud of Christopher. He usually does not like to touch bugs but he actually held the snake...he was so brave. Kaibryn on the other hand just looked at it. She tried to touch it a couple of times but quickly pulled her hand back. The rest of the afternoon they were talking about keeping the snake and took turns "babysitting" the snake.
Things have calmed down and the snake is now gone...it is probably being digested into some animals tummy right now.
This is a crazy week for us. Tomorrow we are going to the zoo with some friends so I'm sure there will be pictures and stories to follow. Chris and I are going out of town this weekend with my parents and brother and sister-in-law to the wedding of the century. There is lots of laundry, packing, cleaning and finishing projects (painting the laundry room) before Wednesday...Grana is coming. The kids are very excited and are counting down the days. HOpe everyone has a good week. We will talk to you soon.
