Silence

I know I just blogged but I had to write this little memory down for our scrapbooks and thought I'd share it with all.

While I was in the other room working on our computer Cash's playing seemed to cease and there was silence...naturally I had to investigate because if Cash is awake and there is silence in the house it usually can't be good. I found Cash looking at something in his hand and as I got closer I saw that it was a fly. Normally I don't get to excited over something like this because Cash seems to find any insect possible and this type of thing is pretty common. But lo and behold as I got closer I found it was alive and still wiggling it's little legs all over the place - yuck. How in the world did a two year old catch a fly with his bare hand when I can't manage to hit them with a swatter?

How funny- bugs can entertain kids so great. Blyss loves finding bugs and studying them. I would love to make you floral arrangements, just give me a couple of weeks to get things settled then I should have time.

That is pretty amazing that he was able to catch it. I hpe that you took a picture of him with a fly in his hands, that would look great in your scrapbook! But if you're like me then you don't think about it until it is too late.
Thanks for shareing!!

LOOKS LIKE ALL IS GOING WELL. RUNNING THROUGH THE SPRINKLER? YOU ARE A GREAT MOMMY. WE JUST SIT IN THE LITTLE POOL WITH HALLE, PROBABLY NOT AS FUN. YOU ALSO LOOK SO ADORABLE AND I LOVE YOUR HAIR. TELL THE FAM HELLO AND WE HOPE ALL IS WELL!

Cash must be pretty talented to catch a fly in his hands. I think flies must know when someone has a fly swatter because they never land for you to get them. Sounds like you are enjoying your summer and running through the sprinklers is always fun

Has he been watching "Karate Kid"? I'm pretty sure he could be a ninja with reflexes like that. Looks like you guys are having lots of fun! We have new neighbors, but they kinda hide out still. I think they are scared of us. We miss you guys.
