The Neighbors Just LUV Us!


The first few days of Spring are trying to bust forth here in Chattanooga and after weeks of wet icky weather the sun is out and so are my kids. Now normally this would be a good thing but it seems it does not take much to turn *good* into *trashy*...


In fact it seems you can do it so fast and have so much fun doing it that you then want to go out and do it every nice day that comes your way. To get it just right closely follow these directions:

Take two siblings who get along about as well as two weasels stuffed in a sock.
Have them scavenge two pieces of old wooden lattice from the pile of construction stuff that needs to go to the dump.
Let them prop said pieces of lattice up with old trash cans in the middle of the side driveway to house.
Scrounge up two old wooden rackets and some dog-slobber tennis balls.
NOW!.. go wild hitting the slobber balls back and forth and bicker as loudly as humanly possible about the wonderful new game you have invented.
Wash-rinse-repeat until the neighbors start looking at you like you are even more weird than they already think you are.

Hey, when the weather gets nice it's a given that the kids will be out causing trouble ;)

ACK!... Julie.. don't say that... we did so good for years and years and then last year we went 3 or 4 times!.. stitches each time.. different kid! I am honestly thinking that I should just super-glue the kids back together given how long we usually have to wait in the ER!
