Catching Up

Today Paul worked and I got to catch up with the kids. We had a great time together until I ran out of patience.

For some reason they are all amped up and over tired. They played 6 games of hockey in 3 days and they played full ice. The kids team won all 6 of their games. They did not have a 1st place team or second ect. in the tournament. Every one who participated got a t-shirt and medal and a goodie bag. The whole thing was about having fun and not about winning. Pretty cool.

Speaking of goodies, Angie Peg Leg sent me a little care package. She spoiled us with some Peeps and a great puzzle. It is one of those mosaic puzzles, (like your mickey mouse Shannon) I picked a bit at Shannon's when I was in Ca. but I have never tried on by myself.

The kids are quite the puzzlers and they have been waiting for me to open it so they could put it together. Sebass is really quite good at puzzles. He helped me with it for a long time. After an hour or so he had put in a fair number of pieces. He was so proud of himself he put in one piece and said, "Mom! Did you see that I put in another one, I must be genius!!!"

I laughed so hard. Thank you Angie, you sent us a great puzzle! And the laugh with Sebass...priceless.

I have found that puzzles will hold a kid's attention longer than one might think. I think it's a good thing for both adults and kids to do puzzles together. One is as good at as the other. Did you guys do puzzles with me when you were kids?

Glad the package arrived. I'm sure the 5000 Peeps helped with the kids hyperactivity. Take a picture of the puzzle when it's done, I'd like to see the finished look of Snoopy.

Peeps are disgusting, but I'm way out voted. Everyone I know loves them.

I hate them too Shannon. I just know Kelly Anne likes them stale, just like iced oatmeal cookies.
