Where did Paul go?

Paul hasn't posted in a while. Where's he been? Riding his bike - until recently when he had a "little accident"

He got a little dirty

Skinned his knee

Broke a bone (notice the lump behind the pinky)

And got it patched up (the straight black lines are pins)

When he gets back on the bike in a couple more weeks, you can follow his adventures here

Dinner Table Conversation with a Ten Year Old

Mom: Okay, Thomas, after dinner you need to get your homework done. Dinner, homework. Dinner, homework. Dinner, homework. Got it?

Thomas: Dinner, homework, beat Calvin up, right?

Mom: Sure.

Thomas: Really?!?

Mom: Yeah, as long as you're willing to accept the consequences.

Thomas: Oh, boo hoo. So I lose a kidney. I have two!

I feel so sorry for the kids when Grandpa Dave comes to visit.

He's just so boring.

He never does anything with them.

He really doesn't like kids very much.

He pretty much ignores them.

He doesn't relate to them at all.

Nope, he just really doesn't understand kids.

Poor guy. He doesn't know what he's missing.

I bet he could have a lot of fun if he'd only try.

Recipe from Thomas

Thomas just asked me to share his original recipe for popsicles. I'm so proud of him!

1/4 cup orange juice
1/4 cup limeade

Pour into each socket of popsicle mold.
Freeze for 5 hours (or overnight).
(If it doesn't come out dunk in warm water.)
(If it still doesn't come out use knife.)
