Little Nasties

We got attacked. Bees. Bumbles. Big fat round bumble bees. I'm not sure what set them off. Four of Four and myself both got stung. Mr. P. was attacked but got the bee before she got him. They watched us through our windows once we retreated inside. I've never had a problem with bumble bees before. Maybe it's time to pave the garden.

So long farewell, auf weidersehen good-bye .......
Time to head North for a bit. Like it hasn't been cold enough around here. Looks like we might actually miss the one nice week of summer in this city. Oh well. Adventures await.

About half done.....
Art School

Photography camp for One of Four

Picking up their sisters


What the fight was about was not important. Kids One through Four had been fighting pretty much non-stop throughout the whole day. I was running out of ideas and decided to re-visit an old punishment that had worked for a while.

"Enough! Come here and stand in front of me!" I said in a now raspy voice.

"Apologize to each other and then think of one nice thing about your sister and tell her what it is that you like." I instructed.

3 minutes go by......

"You now have lost computer privileges for taking too long. Want to try for t.v. too?" I ask.

3 more minutes go by.....

"You have now lost t.v. Next I go into your room with a garbage bag and start to collect Webkinz....."

"Noooooooo! I like that she has eyes!!!!" Three of Four yells desperately.

"I like that she has eyes too!" Screams Two.

"Well, I guess that's something. Now hug."

Sigh. Twenty seven days until school starts. I'm counting.
