The South

Where tea is sweet and accents are sweeter; summer starts in April; front porches are wide and words are long; macaroni and cheese is a vegetable; pecan pie is a staple; Y’all is the only proper pronoun; chicken is fried and biscuits come with gravy; everything is darling and someone is always getting their heart blessed. -unknown

This blog is about nothing.

I haven't had anything to blog about lately. I could tell you about cleaning out the dryer exhaust this past weekend, or about starting to pack for our trip, but that is boring.

.....but I am not complaining about the peace and quiet in our lives. I would hate to think of the alternative.

Here is Brooks and friend from a recent birthday party. So sweet!

Grandparents Day!

Thursday was Grandparents day at the school. It was a great time for Brooks to show Gammie, Pop, and Ibu, his classroom, the things he does, and even let them see a school program. Here are some pictures of the dress rehearsal, and then the real thing.

What is it about sticks?

Son number 1 loves them.

Son number 2 loves them.

They are useful for digging in ant beds.

Even "son" number 3 loves them. Although technically he would be son number 1.

I just don't get it.

Mom decided to make a list the other day of the funny things that Reese said in one morning. She stopped her list after breakfast:

1. "I have chicken eggs on my feet." (Who knows what that means?)

2. "I don't want to burn up." (when told not to touch the stove) then again louder... "I don't want to burn up! I would cry about it."

3. R: "Is this juice or milk in my cup?"
Me: "It's apple juice."
R: "No, it's green juice. That's kinda like apple juice."

4. After dropping his cup on the floor, he hollered at Chou Chou (the dog) to not bother it. Then he said, "I am very upset with you, Chou Chou."

5. "Gammie, Shrek pulls boogers out of his ears."

(I stopped writing for a while after that one)

6. At lunch, he looks at me and grins and says "Pooty".
Me: "Don't say that, it doesn't sound very nice."
R: "But I just said it."
(we have a lot of who's on first conversations)
R: "Daddy will give me a spanking and I have to stand in the corner. I will say "standing
on the promises"--that sounds sweet."

We will see what tomorrow brings.
