Too Funny!!

I had a really rotten day with my kids today. Then someone sent me this....PERFECT!!!!

The boss wondered why one of his most valued employees was absent but had not phoned in sick one day. Needing to have an urgent problem with one of the main computers resolved, he dialed the employee's home phone number and was greeted with a child's whisper. ' Hello ? '

'Is your daddy home?' he asked.

' Yes ,' whispered the small voice.

'May I talk with him?'

The child whispered, ' No .'

Surprised and wanting to talk with an adult, the boss asked, 'Is your Mummy there?'

' Yes '

'May I talk with her?' Again the small voice whispered, ' No '

Hoping there was somebody with whom he could leave a message, the boss asked, 'Is anybody else there?'

' Yes , ' whispered the child, ' a policeman .. '

Wondering what a cop would be doing at his employee's home, the boss asked, 'May I speak with the policeman?'

' No, he's busy , ' whispered the child.

'Busy doing what?'

' Talking to Daddy and Mummy and the Fireman , ' came the whispered answer.

Growing more worried as he heard a loud noise in the background through the earpiece on the phone, the boss asked, 'What is that noise?'

' A helicopter ' answered the whispering voice.
'What is going on there?' demanded the boss, now truly apprehensive. Again, whispering, the child answered,

' The search team just landed a helicopter '

Alarmed, concerned and a little frustrated the boss asked, 'What are they searching for?'

Still whispering, the young voice replied with a muffled giggle...
' ME . '

Josiah's eye and first days of school 2009

It is hard to see, but Josiah has 5 stitches in his left eyebrow from falling down the stairs. Lots of bruises, too. The stitches come out tomorrow morning.

Grace and Olivia on their first day of school, Gracie is in 5th and Olivia is in 2nd. When did they get so big.

Don't ya love the matching outfits? I wonder how long they will think matching is cool?

Josiah and Charis leaving for their first day of Kindergarten. Charis was the only girl in her class today. There are only 12 girls in the whole Kindergarten class, so each class will only have 4 girls and probably 12 boys! Aye, yi, yi!

They really were more excited than they look! They are in separate classes, but guess who they played with at recess today???

I think

Charis needs her own blog. The things coming out of her mouth are so funny, I can only imagine what is going through her mind~

At Kindergarten Screening:

Teacher: Why do we go to school?

Charis: Because my mommy says I have to!


On the way out of the door from Kindergarten camp:

Day One

Ni Hao! Ni Hao! (Chinese for hello)

Day Two

Adios! Adios!! Adios!!!


Number of curtain rods that Charis has destroyed by swinging from them: 2

Kindergarten Camp

Charis and Josiah went to Kindergarten Camp today. It is a great opportunity for the incoming Kindergartners to come in for a few 1/2 days and get to know the building, the teachers, etc without the big kids being there.

Afterwards I asked what they did. And Charis put her hands on her nonexistent hips and said, "Well, we DIDN'T camp!!"
