New bird!

Our new bird at the feeder!  This is a Common Grackle.  This type rarely comes around and when it does, they don't stick around for very long.  My pics aren't very clear because I had to snap pics real quick and couldn't focus properly.  Neat though huh!!!

Presidents from memory

We have been studying the presidents for the past couple weeks.  The kids have finally memorized all of them!  Here they each are, reciting the names.  Our 7 yr old did it with his eyes closed to show that no one received any 'helps' or 'hints' while reciting.   The 2 older ones recite complete names while our 5 yr old recites just last names. (Even our 3 yr old has most of them down pat!!)
**Be patient - they are big files and may take a moment to load :)

My 7 year old is outside play fighting with a much larger neighbor boy.  I'm keeping a close eye by the opened window.  My son pipes up and tells the boy "if you kill me, my mom will never forgive you!"
Too funny!
