School Pictures

I don't know how many of you know this, but we are in a homeschool co-op.  In the co-op we get together once a week and have classes.  For the first half of the year we had creative writing and literature.  During the second half of the year we had drama and math.  One of the moms in the co-op had enough ambition to put together a co-op year book.  One of the moms is an amazing photographer and she took pictures of all the kids for the yearbook.  Here are our "School Pictures"

Swan Park

On Friday we had an awesome day.  We went to swan park.  It is amazing.  Hundreds of swans, geese, and ducks gather their to be fed.  It all started one day when a lady was out feeding the birds.  Her backyard is the Mississippi river.  When overhead flew some Trumpeter Swans.  Back then Trumpeter Swans were endangered.  One of the swan flying overhead had been in a zoo and  so had been fed by humans when she saw this lady feeding the birds she recognized what was going on and decided to come down for a snack.  The lady who was feeding the birds ( I can't remember her name.)  had no idea what this huge white bird was.  Anyway,  the word got around the bird community that this lady was handing out free food.  And in 2011 their was over a thousand swans coming to be fed.  In 2012 though their was hardly any snow.  And so the swans figured out that they could migrate.  So now their is only  three or four hundred swans coming to be fed each morning in January and February.  Here are some pictures.  It was soooooo amazing!!!!

Theif!!! Theif!!!

I think that many of you have heard that some scoundrel stole our trampoline mat and springs!  Who does that!?!?  Here is the story.  One day we came home from running some errands and 14 trampoline springs are missing.  Ok this is strange.  Did someone decide that they wanted to decorate their house with 14 trampoline springs?  So my mom looks on craigslist and finds a free trampoline frame and springs and we had to take it all.  So now we have a extra trampoline frame.  No biggie.  There is a scrap metal dude that will come pick it up for freeeee!  When he comes by to pick it up it is gone?  What?  So now people or doing interior decorating with trampoline frames?  Haven't seen this on pinterest.  So we were telling the missionaries how the frame had vanished and we joked that someone was going to wake up with a missing trampoline mat.  Well . . .  the next morning our trampoline mat and the springs were gone.
 Since you stole two innocent little boys trampoline please  steal the rest of it.  You have no honor.  Heee Hee Hee!  That is right we will guilt trip you till you die!  Bwahahaha bwahahahaha!
