I spoiled them with sausage gravy and biscuits for breakfast. We really enjoy it when the grandchildren are here.
I learned an interesting detail from Britt. She has participated in the "Quiz Bowl" for several years now. I asked her if she would be taking part again this year and she told me that she was busy with other activities and forgot to get her application in. She said that by the time she thought about it it was too late to get her drug test.. ??????????????? My response was. "A drug test to take part in the Quiz Bowl?" She said that everyone that takes part in any extra curricular activities has to be tested for drugs. I have mixed feelings about this. I know it has been a couple of years since I went to school, but as I remember it, the kids that did drugs seldom, if ever, took part in anything extra that went on at school. If that is still the case, it seems as if the kids that are most likely doing drugs are slipping through the cracks. If they are going to do drug tests I think it should be random testing on the total student body.
Today was Seth Day and when we arrived we were greeted by Riley. He is so excited because his birthday is coming up on the 23rd. His Birthday Party will be tomorrow though. G'ma and G'pa will take some pictures to share. It is so hard to believe that he is going to be 5 years old. Come fall he will be going off to Kindergarten. He is already counting to 100 and reading sentences. ..... I just don't know where the time goes.
Of course right behind Riley, we were greeted by Mama and Seth. He is such a sweety and G'Pa's Boy. He has learned something new so we did a clip of it to show you. I tried to add it to this posting, but I am having a problem with it. As soon as I can figure out how to post it on my blog I will share it with you.
One last note of interest, this morning a little after 5:30 I was checking my e-mail and I heard the house making noises and the computer monitor was shaking. It was just for a minute and then it quit. I dismissed it and then later heard on the news about the earthquake. The time was right, so I figure that must be what it was. What I experienced though was so faint and quick, had I been asleep it wouldn't have been noticed at all.
Have a Great Day..... ~Jo
