Look how big this bird is! This is one of the babies. There are about 5 of them in the little nest. They're so big now that they don't all fit. They have to lay this way and that, on top of eachother. They are flying now, so they're not always all in the nest. This little guy was just sitting there one day...kept staring at me!!
The parents are funny...they are actually dive-bombing us when we go out onto the porch! Or when anyone comes the babysitting kids!! Ooops.
Hopefully they'll be gone soon...we want to start our big project.... new windows/siding/doors. I'm SUPER excited to do this!!! The siding on our house is white...not only is it stained and dirty, but it's just plain ugly. And the windows are horribly thin... there is always a draft. And the front door and storm door don't even close properly. Oh it will be SO NICE to have the house look pretty!! I will definitely take pictures.
Cheerleading starts tomorrow, and I'm coaching once again. Although this year I'm only an assistant coach, and my best friend Pam is the head coach. So far there are only 7 girls signed up (Could it be because last year was so awful?) We're hoping more girls sign up becuase there are rumors that we'll have to merge with the lower team if more girls don't sign up. Who knows???? I do know one thing... with cheerleading AND play practice AND tae kwon do... we're going to be awfully busy. Oh wait, wasn't Art supposed to do the windows/siding/doors??? :)
We got the final Harry Potter book last week... Samantha has read it already. I don't want to read it until I read all the others... so far I have read book one, and am about 1/3 of the way into book 2. Such good books! Very interesting! I hope the boys show an interest in them someday.
Why is 6 afraid of 7?******************Because 7 8 9!!!!!!

Oh Tracy can't wait to see your new windows and siding... are you getting a color? or just new white. I can't believe how big your babies are... pretty soon the mama won't let them come back into the nest because they are so big...

Brent loves that joke & then James tries it too, with different numbers because he doesn't quite get it, he understands the numbers but not the whole "eight/ate" thing.

I hope you get more people sign up for cheerleading. have fun being coach.
