They've hatched!
Is it wrong to want to name them? I tried to get a better picture but a certain mama thrasher came running out from under our deck and attacked my feet. I told the Mountain Man I totally understand what it feels like to brave the wilds of Africa for a rare animal sighting. He said, "Of course you do."

Also, yesterday was our 4th wedding anniversary and 8th dativersary. I realized we moved in together approximately 1 month into our relationship and American Idol started about a month later. I had never made that connection before. (And, yes, I watch too much tv). However, I'm rectifying that situation thanks to a certain novelist.

And, my kid scored 4.0s on his EOGs!!! Dude. That deserves another set of !!! I am so proud of him, and his teachers, for working so diligently over the past few months. Please excuse me why I yell a big ol' SUCK IT to ADHD.

!!! for Friday!

    Happy Anniversary!! Kelly, I have also been wanting to tell you how much the comment you left on my anniversary post last week meant to me. It seriously was one of the most beautiful things anyone has ever said to me. I cherished your words. Thank you for that!! You're a treasure. <3

    Ours hatched, too! They've already flown the nest - which is great, given that it was inside the house.

  • Janine

    That was so cute! Love the pic...I'll be posting soon about my endeavor tonight...rescuing an abused puppy. Yikes. As if I weren't crazy enough! lol Tell Javi, not that he will have any idea who I am, nor will my opinion matter much to him, that I think he rocks and congrats on the awesome grades! I agree...ADHD, or any other struggle so does not have to define our kids! Great job, Javi...great job, Mom!
