March 18-24

Before leaving Lincoln on Sunday we had a little birthday party for Emmett.  It was a gorgeous day to eat outside, however the wind wasn't all that candle-friendly.  We had to move the singing inside.

Isabella brought in the first spring bouquet--and first dandelions of the year.

Now don't freak out, but that is the tooth Marissa had removed on Tuesday.  Somehow she ended up with a full-sized extra one growing in her pallet.  I was utterly shocked to see how long the root was--I guess I haven't seen a lot of pulled permanent teeth.  I was afraid there might be a hole in the roof of her mouth leading to her brain! ;o)

The kids scavenged the neighboring corn field for left over corn and scattered it through the yard.  It made a flocks of birds (starlings I believe) quite happy.

Our week for the most part can be summed up in this poem:


Mud, Mud, Mud
Author UnknownMud, mud, mud. What a glorious thing is mud! Mud, mud, mud.  What a glorious thing is mud!It sticks and stacks, it squeezes through cracks,Between your toes goes mud.It plops and drops, and oozes and goozes, thick or thin it's mud!Mud, mud, mud. What a glorious thing is mud! Mud, mud, mud. What a glorious thing is mud!
It's mud pie, in your eye,The cake it makes are grand.
It covers your feet, it covers your face, Stir it with both hands.
Mud, mud, mud. What a glorious thing is mud! Mud, mud, mud. What a wonderful thing is mud!
Up to your elbows, up to your knees,
It slips and slops around.
It's easy to make a chocolate cake,
Take water and add some ground!
Mud, mud, mud. What a glorious thing is mud! Mud, mud, mud. What a wonderful thing is mud!
Mud, they say, has a way
Of changing clean to dirt.
But after all, you tell them all,
What can a little dirt hurt?
Mud, mud, mud. What a glorious thing is mud! Mud, mud, mud. What a wonderful thing is mud!

A view of the Harlan County Reservoir at sunset. (The town of Alma, where we attended Jackson's wrestling meet is right next to it).

Oh look, more mud. ;o)

Oh my word! That is quite the tooth! Hope the Tooth Fairy gave extra for that one! :)

I love the mud splatted Emmett and the poem is perfect!
