Today we were off to see our cousins' football game.
They played well - and won - and our freshman cousin even got game time! Yeah!

My highlight - watching Speedy make some new friends ... then watching him tackle and down-right beat them up! It did start innocently enough with a game of football. That didn't take long to turn into tackle football. I was suprised (amazed) that the other parents weren't butting in at this point, we all just let them play. It was getting pretty rough, but after one boy was done whining/crying, he would get back up and ask the others to pass it to him, so we let them be! Slowly the aggression multiplied and the football involved decreased. I did finally step in, by means of bringing out food!

Speedy will sleep well tonight - he ran around in that hot sun for two hours... made me hot and tired just watching him!

Cucumber Eyeball Drumstick!

Vacation spaghetti hola ,tree vegetable jail, bathtub.

For lake pineapple computer guitar, lemon favorite timer, pants onion.

You confused?
Sunshine sure was!
We were having a casual lunch, and the above is part of the conversation between Speedy and I. Sunshine was a good sport, and let it go on for quite a while before piping up with a "I must've missed the beginning, what are you saying?".
What was the reply to this?

Dumb key tuba flower!

And so it continued for another 5 minutes.
Once again we hear Sunshine "I think I missed something at the beginning"
... this time followed by a short pause...
and finally Speedy: "Oh, that's ok" ... pause ... "I did to!"

Just try to imagine the level of laughter in our small kitchen. Even Sprout joined in!
