Chiara waiting anguishly for the first party guests playing with a little lizard which she tried to hide in the little bucket in her room under the bed.
Don't miss your way!
We had 9 (6 plus mine)kids sleeping here last night plus Heidi leaving at midnight because all the kids occupied the couch and floor. And none of the kids went home inthe middle of the night.
After playing 'Tagged by the Sheriff of Nothingham' and 'Stealing Taxes from the Sheriff of Nottingham' Robin Hood and his men won the battle against the Sheriff and celebrated King Richard's return with cakein the castle with silver plates and silver forks.
Oops! We almost forgot to opening the presents.
To get them all settle down we watched the old Robin Hood movie with Kevin Costner 'Prince of Thieves'. The movie is old enough that none of the kids has seen it before. LOL
It's a LONG movie.
The next morning.
Abi, one of our late sleepers.
Mallory was still all bundled up under a quilt on couch, not be seen,
I looked ine very store I could imagine and i found here to find the golden chocolate coins I ALWAYS see. But no, not one, nowhere, nada, nix. So I had to come up with another idea to provide taxes. Even most of our party guest are able to read by now, I was hoping that they overlook the fact that we would be using American currency from the year 2008 instead of the english one from the medieval times.
After printing the scrolls for our story activities and another glass of mine I called it a night. The rest just had to wait until the next day.

Here it is:
Soren LOVES dogs! "But come on, guys, even I am little, don't fool me, this is not a real fireman dog. I am NOT getting close to it!"
Who needs popcorn, hotdogs, face painting, bounce houses, games, music and silly dogs if there is a big root growing right here!
May I present the "Monkey Faces" of the Junior League of the YMCA Tumbling Academy.
Bella's classmate celebrated her 8th birthday at the CTC Planetarium. What a neat idea!
While all the kid's watched the show inside Soren and I explored the college on the outside.
No pictures worth. Gardening. Cutting gras. I figured out the new lawn mower and got it to start until I ran out of gasoline barely started. Thanks Leland. All the gasoline containers are empty. At the old place I would at least be done with front yard by now, but not on this property. if we every own our own place we have to considering a smart landscaping solution and no I am not thinking of desert landscaping (I remember picking leaves out of rocks by hand.).
