The Rec Center

Today was closing day for the Rec this season. A sure sign that spring is right around the corner. Most mom's I know wish the Rec would stay open for another month, I think a petition was even being passed around to beg for an extension. This is the season of unpredictable skies and rain and mud. Messy, messy, messy.

The kids all seemed to be in a funny sort of mood today.

Some took extra long naps.

Some refused to wear their pants.

Some just couldn't quite blend in and pouted instead.
This pouting is new. He slumps his shoulders, head hanging low and walks off dejectedly.
Sometimes he'll flop down on the floor with a long face and not move.
It makes me giggle! He he he!

These girls wanted to hold hands for their picture.

Then Miss 3 began showing off her head standing skills.

Every other little girl in the place was suddenly at my side.

My turn! My turn! They all hollered.

I had them bend over with their heads on the mat.
Then I held their feet up in the air with one hand.
With my other hand I snapped their photos.
I only snapped photos of the little girls I knew.
They all wanted their photos taken.

I told one little boy that I didn't know him
so his Momma probably wouldn't want me to take his picture.

He said: "My name is William Kennedy So and So, now you can take my picture!"


I spied these ducks on the side of the road while driving home.

I pulled over, jumped out of the car and crept up as close as they would allow me. I almost opened up my car doors with promises of animal crackers to lure them home. I thought they were so pretty.

Making dinner was extra nice this evening because my paper whites have begun to bloom.
They made me smile over and over.

The End

I love little kids like William--pure comedy! I think the duck with the tan on its head is cool looking.

I feel just as weird as those crazy kids in the pictures! The weather is teasing us like crazy out here! We were enjoying sunny weather and now today I can't get out of bed...it snowed again! Arghh!!! I love the paper whites! Thanks for always giving the rest of us something to smile about, Ali!
