I Live On A Loon Farm

I kid you not, this has been a stellar week. I am sitting here just reflecting on all the goodness that this family offers to the world. So much has happened this week, but I'm just going to give you the super awesome highlights.
Brace yourself:
  • Addison got in trouble at school because she kicked a classmate....in her back. Sweet glory, how fantastic is that!? Her response to me, "I didn't even kick her that hard." Again, I repeat, fantastic.
  • The assistant principal called me yesterday because she was holding Makell in her office. Every time I see the school on my caller ID, I hold my breath, and this is why--she wanted to let me know that Makell was trying to choke herself in the lunch room, her face turned bright red, and she told her friends to try it because it felt good. When she was confronted by the lunchroom manager, the assistant principal, and the nurse, she lied and said she didn't do anything. My pride floweth over.
  • Two nights ago, we had a crazy rainstorm. Todd noticed that the rain gutter out front was plugged. Instead of taking 5 extra steps into the house to grab the step ladder, he reached for the white, wicker, decrepit chair that sit on the front porch. He placed the chair directly below the rain gutter and proceeded to STAND ON THE ARMS OF THE CHAIR. In the pouring rain. Chair tips, Todd falls....then rolls into the vacant lot beside our house. Face down. In the mud. Never saw that one comin'.
  • I was talking with a friend about where we get our hair cut. I told her that, "I'm kinda' particular about my hair." She pauses and then says, "You seem like you're kinda' particular about most things....not that that's bad." Schazam! How super awesome is that!? I'm thinkin' she meant it as a compliment.
Isn't there a quote that states, "That which doesn't kill us makes us stronger."
I think I like my version better,
"If they don't kill me today, they will just try again tomorrow."

If they don't kill me today they will try again tomorrow.... My favorite new quote. Glad to see you didn't have a boring week!

I'm just glad there was nothing mentioned about the violin lessons--hopefully, that went smoothly! And, what's wrong w/being particular? In my book--not a thing! :) (Especially, when it comes to hair!) Hope you have a peaceful, relaxing weekend!

I'm laughing so hard I can hardly type. Maybe it's a Father vs. Mother thing, but the wife is gasping instead of laughing. I think it's all hilarious, I can imagine it in my mind. I'll be laughing for days.

i sound like a broken record...i just wish u were still 2 doors down, so i could get this first-hand...it's so much more entertaining in person ;) (you would have great stories for the blog this weekend, as we have a dumpster in the cul-de-sac for a fall 'cleanup' & i almost wish that kellie were around to show the other kids what she would do playing in the dumpster w/ all the dangerous junk) plus since i'm just hanging around the house...unemployed & all...i could go to the school as your representative. or better yet, we could send shrek over. yikes! and by the way, you can tell todd that i would have done the same thing...i'm all about standing on furniture, esp when it's handy. love & miss you terribly!!!

I want to see your picture of Todd laying face down in the mud! I know you've got to have it. So let's see it!

I don't know if this will frighten you or make you feel better but almost all of the 6 kids in my family were like Makell and we all turned out well (I think so any way).

Samantha was so cute today.
