Trailblazin' In The Boondocks

Yesterday, Nathan decided to take the loppers and clear a path through the overgrown brush, down and around the Golden Delicious Apple tree. Lindsay was a big help, picking up the fallen branches and piling them in as neat a pile as possible off to the side. They did a great job! Now all we have to do is beat the Blue Jays to the apples, so we can fully appreciate the fruits of our children's labor.

Afterwards, Lindsay had a brilliant idea! She decided if I can't find her, then I won't be able to call her in for school. What better way to hide from Mom than to employ some natural camouflage!

This morning, there's no need to hide from Mom. My children are both lounging in front of the TV watching their weekly shows as they consume their weekend cereal of choice. Who knows what great adventures await them this afternoon?

CUTE picture of Miss Lindsay...I've had kids try to avoid schoolwork but not with quite that much creativity.

Yeah, I'm not sure what those are about, but they seemed somehow entertaining to me, so I let 'em go. I know. I've an odd sense of humor. LOL

Nathan and Lindsay have tried some interesting techniques to avoid school..and showers. One time they got a real good talking to. We looked everywhere, and were actually becoming concerned to the point we were considering calling the cops, when we heard giggling, followed by the two of them scrambling out of a couple trees. Twirps! Geez! Don't scare me like that!

My five year old grandson starts kindergarten this year and he's not a happy camper. He loves being home and not much will change that.
