“She who sees robins first” and JoshIt was “she who sees robins” birthday yesterday..I won’t divulge how old she is..but she was nineteen when she birthed Josh. I took this photo earlier in the month at an open house at Station Number Two..Josh was walking around talking to little kids..showing them what a fireman looks and sounds like in an self-contained breathing apparatus. He did scare a few children. Small children have been known to hide from firemen during a fire, because they were afraid..and firemen look and sound scary.
I snagged this photo of Mason( Josh's son) that day too..it was one day after he turned six. He invited us to his birthday party. I asked him what he would like for a gift..truly a gentleman he replied “I will like what ever you pick out.” I asked again and he replied “A Transformers Movie” ..well ok what if I cannot find it what other movies would he like..Horses..no..Dogs ..yes. We found a Transformers Movie and just for good measure Where The Red Fern Grows one of my favorites. The best present he got at his party was a giant gallon jar of pickles..he was just thrilled! He kept all of his requests straight and never asked for the same gift twice..impressive for a six year old. He got some water guns that Far Guy and I were both coveting..super blasters…we were both thinking what a fun thing to use with Chance!
I am not sure if I reminded you to change the batteries in your smoke alarm when we went to daylight saving time. If you didn’t replace them..put it on your list of things to do. I made Far Guy do it..he would like to eek out every little bit of juice from a battery and wait for the smoke alarm to start going beep-beep..not me..replace them:)
