The silly sisters can now add oil changing to their resume. That’s right, they changed little gold Knightly’s oil. And boy did he ever need it.

There was some confusion on the youngest child’s part over the guts of a car, and since only one person can fit under little knightly at a time, this confusion struck the whole class until the middle child dragged her out and told her to get lost. Naturally things progressed very well after the middle child took over, with only minor leakages.

Things the middle child learned: Obstacles build muscles and sisters build obstacles. She also learned how to change the oil of a car.

Things the youngest child learned: Not everything is a catastrophe. She also learned she could have changed the oil if her ankles hadn’t been sticking out from under the car far enough for the middle child to grab.

Good and worthy lessons for all of us to remember.

This post is dedicated to justifying our rather long silence.

First there was no internet. So the middle child and the youngest child buried themselves in work to forget that grievous fact. Somewhere between painting the vaulted ceilings, dancing with the scaffold, painting the library, creating art in the youngest child’s room, laying linoleum, painting secret closets, ripping up walls in cabins, replacing the unfortunate walls, building a counter top for the favorite mother’s secret mother’s day gift, working around a crooked dock, washing walls, making beds, washing blankets, being nice, raking the beach, planning parties, visiting hiding Heidi, finding the favorite Texas Grandparents in Canada, cutting trees, moving trees, and moving a deck for the door, the silly sisters have managed to find the time to keep batting the book ball into the publisher’s field every time it gets pitched back. Was that sentence too long? No doubt.

No one else has posted either though so we don’t feel completely guilty…just slightly. But off to work with us now. If we don’t keep moving we’re bound to fall behind.

on the road

over the past week, the silly sisters have been traveling so much they no longer know if they're coming or going. In fact, they're almost positive they've passed themselves on the road a couple of times.

Loving and Giving

Thats right! Little Hidding Heidi Anne Larson was born this morning at 5:30. She weighs some pounds so many ounces, and is about so long. The oldest child and the favorite brother-in-law are both doing well...and the little glow worm is as proud as can be...she's been telling little hidding Heidi to come out for a long time.

Someday, when we head south to pick up the favorite mother, we'll get some pictures...but until then, here's a picture of the middle child and the youngest childs finger painting skills...or part of it anyway.

A report on the first annual sucker run May 3rd

The newsy staff canceled the sucker run due to a distressing conflict with a firefighter’s training. Unfortunately, the newsy news staff forgot to tell everyone. So out of the chaos, the results are as follows:

The winner is: Simon River, a superb athlete from Hermitvill WY, he plans on exhibiting his Supper Sucker water painting by the silly sister’s at his remote spread somewhere else. He said, and we quote, “I will treasure it always…”

The middle child came in with a very dramatic second place, she had just passed the two pine trees before the Y. Her prize was 1000 newsy points, which she can now use at any newsy store.

The favorite mother was trailing the middle child by a few short steps, making her third over all!!! Her prize was beating the one eyed mutt, who did not participate for personal reasons.

And the youngest child also ran.

As for the firefighter’s training, it was canceled unbeknownst to the newsy staff…whose the sucker’s now huh?
