Off for Comedy

Well, we're headed to Crackers Comedy club tonight to see Darren

pretty excited! The only drawback will be missing HGTV's dream home

Fungus jungle

I'm sitting with Jacob on the couch early this Saturday morning.
Feeling rather cough-hack I say, 'I have a fungus jungle living in the
back of my throat.' sticking my tongue out and going, 'vlahhhh.'

Jacob says, 'I want to see the tiger!'

I say, 'He's been busy scratching the back of my eukalaylee!'

Jacob says, 'Did the tree frogs come out if your nose?'

Let the silliness commence.

School Daze

I have spent the last few days at my son's school helping his class disect frogs.
This the first opportunity for this group of kids to experience this type of forensic science.Being a mother, I was quite proud to see my son needing very little, if any help to disect his frog. Being a classroom helper- I was amused mostly at the teacher's aid being 'grossed out' by them. A few children were mock ill. I didn't see any real vomit- just playacting.
It's been a few years since bio-med classes, but I did OK. Not great, but OK finding all the internal organs.
The smell is just as bad, in case you were wondering.
