Here is a mod podge of pictures I took on various days.
The boys sold popcorn at a nearby Lowes. And when they were finished everyone needed to try out the tractors.
I had a day where we would have no TV and no PC for the day until 4:00 when their favorite show came on. It was one of the hardest days ever! It took them 10 times longer to get their homework done than on days I let them watch TV for breaks. I have to admit it wasn't worth it!
So early in the morning when they woke up. Aussie was crying in his bed because he couldn't play gamecube. I tried to keep them busy with fun activities. We made pyramids out of sugar cubes.
Mason was still asleep when we began, but when he woke up he didn't want to make his own. He only wanted to help Ashley.
They tried to race who would get done first. However Aussies was quite a bit bigger than the other one, so it took longer to build.
A couple weeks ago Greg wanted to go to a concert. The group was having a pre-show at a little art house. The group is called Venus Hum. Greg loves their songs. I on the otherhand am not that excited over them. Greg burned a CD for Ashley and Mason to listen to and they love to sing along. So Greg asked me to bring the kids to the art house.
Ashley got the lead singer's autograph. But Mommy was the hero of the day. I took this photo immediately over to Walgreens and enlarged it to an 8x10. Then I brought it back and Annette the singer signed the photo for Ashley. Ashley has it next to her bed.
During the singing, Aussie asked me for some paper. I told him I had some in the car and we walked out to get some after a song. Austin doesn't like much music but he was so considerate of me. He said, "Mom I don't want you to have to miss any of the songs." I leaned over and whispered, "I don't like them either." We both smiled, got the paper and went back in.
When the pre-show was over, we walked outside and Aussie said, Well Mom we lived through it! I don't remember the exact wording. It seemed like it was even funnier than that.
