All because two people fell in love...

We met in February 1989, started dating in May, and got married in September. And Josh came *almost* 11 months later, just in case y'all were wondering. And then no more came. We waited, and waited, and then Lauren decided to make her debut in May 1995 (5 weeks early), and then Kayley 1997, Jacob 1998, Krissy 2001, Lindsey 2004 & Joey 2006. We lived in Texas until 2005, and then we moved to Arkansas, just about 25 miles north of Texarkana, Texas. Fortunately all my children are Texans (and my handsome husband) because Texans are just cool. Wish I was a Texan... but husband had to settle with a California gal, which I think is pretty cool too.

Spring Break has begun!

The grass is green, the sky is blue
I wonder where the birdies is...

That was always a "rhyme" that my dad always told us. I don't know why I just thought of it as I wrote the title.

Awwwww, the joyful sound of kids fighting, I mean playing and being nice to each other. Just think I have another 10 days of this? Will I stay sane? or will I turn into the wicked witch? I just can't wait until my mom and sister get here next weekend.

The poem I remember goes like this (and I tell it to the kids all the time)

Spring has sprung
The grass is riz
I wonder where the birdies is?
The birdies day is on the wing
Now isn't that a funny thing?
I always thought the wing was on the birdie!

Well, I remember that one too, so mine must be the condensed version of it?! I do remember Dad always saying Ka-plop, unless it was a kid. I don't know... I'm getting old here!
