My Five Year Old Daughter and Her Children are Moving In

We will be going to the Dollar Tree this evening after picking up all the bigger kids from track practice and drama practice today. Kiki is armed with her bag of money (2.60) saved from discoveries around the house and her first youth fairy visit.
While we drive to the Junior High:
Kiki: Maybe I should save all this money do I can buy a house.
Me: Houses cost ALOT of money honey. More than you can count.
Kiki:  Oh
Later, Kiki: Mommy, when I am a mom I am going to live with you.
Me: Why? So I can help with the kids?
Kiki:  no.
Me: Because you love me so much?
Kiki:  No.
Me:  Then why Kiki?
Kiki:  Because I don't have enough money to buy a house.
Love her!

I have been on my Green Monster Smoothie kick lately and just fell awful if I skip one.

Thus, LINKY TIME to more great Spinach Recipes!

Paper Golf Anyone?

Nathan, my little brilliant 12 year old, apparently was bored after he completed the mock testing at school yesterday. He created this elaborate paper ball golf course. The double with the ramp and chute certainly would be a challenge.
