A Little Bit of Sanity and A Lot of Chaos: Frogs...

Friday, July 16, 2010


We have a firepit....therefore we have frogs. I guess. Our firepit doesn't want to drain. Too much clay in the ground. So, every time it storms we get a huge mosquito breeding ground that the frogs love. Frogs good. Mosquitoes bad.

So far the boys (when I say "the boys", I mean me, I, yours truly) have caught 17 frogs in the firepit.

It's dis-gust-ing.

Usually we catch the frogs and pet them, then put them in the sometimes swampy field behind our yard...but this time I let them catch the frog and play with it for a little while.

They named him Ernie.

Ernie had a very active afternoon. First he made a sandcastle.

Then he went for a little swim.

Then, after he got used to the water, he went for a big swim.

After swimming on his own for a little while, he was ready for some company. But they weren't allowed to get too close....

After a few minutes, he was okay with them playing with him and he posed for pictures. He is very photogenic.

Fun stuff.

By the way, suits are from Old Navy on sale for 4.99. Go get them. I got enough until they are 10.

Another by the way, Porter has an eye infection and now he says his ear hurts, Jack has croup and a double ear infection laced with a good ole' eye infection and Gus has an eye infection laced with a double ear infection. Oh! And Tom had a ganglion cyst removed, not the old Bible way though, by a doctor. (Read up on it. They used to thump the cyst with a Bible to make it go away. Grody.) And, I'm just going to start drinking....

But, you'd never be able to tell...look how happy they are!

Happy weekend!

After reading your blog for 2 weeks now and never commenting, I must comment today! I do believe we could be long lost sisters. I love to run. I have three young boys (4.5, 3, 11m), I live in MN, I have recently become obsessed with finding furniture to fix up, and I cannot stop laughing with yoU! You're hilarious! I'm about ready to drink too...
