Race day 6-20-10

We spend father's day at the race track. It was very hot, but Brad and Colt were in heaven as usual.

Chirp finds a new home

Chirp has been with us since Easter weekend and she is living the life of royalty, but it was time for her to find a new home. We let her live outside all day long and then put her in a cage in the evening and she started wondering a lot more into the neighbors yards. No one said anything, but I don't want to offend our neighbors so that was one issue. The second issue was she pooped everywhere. I know...chickens do that. But it would be one thing if she stayed on the ground, but she would roost of Brad's boat and poop everywhere and that wasn't cutting it anymore so we took her to some friends of ours that have other chickens and made that her home. Brad took her and said her feet are probably 3 times the size of the other chickens because she was so well fed. She's going to have some getting use to life now, but then she'll be fine. She should start laying eggs in November from what he said. I think it was harder on me that anyone else. Don't know why....she's a chicken for heaven's sake, but I still cried. Colt came to me later Sat. afternoon and asked I thought she had made friends. Of course I said....I don't know if she has or not, but I wanted him to know he had made the right decisions. Is it wrong to lie to protect his little heart? are some pictures from our final day with Chirp.

Colt turns 7

Morgan came down to celebrate his actual birthday with him since she was moving to Colorado. We went and ate pizza with Brad and Di/Pa and Emma and then went and played Lunar golf out at the mall. That's what he chose to do. Then we kissed Tia goodbye and safe travels on Wed. and he celebrated his bday on Saturday with friends at All-Stars Pizza. Brad made his cake again this year. The annual dirtbike cake with a different track. It turned out pretty neat once again. Colt was happy so that's all that counts.

I picked up Colton today from Safety town and I asked how things went. This is the response I got....

Colt: "Well, I got her (I won't use names to protect her) phone number."
me: "Who's number?"
Colt: "Insert girls name here. And I told her I needed them so we could get together with her brother. She gave me her cell number and her home phone number. And she babysits. "
Me: "So did you ever find out his name?"
Colt: "Um....Oh's (insert name)"
I had been asking him all week what the little boys name was that Colt has a crush on his sister and the last day he finally gets it and then uses it to get her phone numbers. This boy is entirely too girl crazy for a 7 yr old.

safety town

This week Colton has been doing safety town all week in the mornings. I went to pick him up today and like I do every day I asked him what he did. His response today.......flirt. He has discovered a 13 yr old girl with long dark brown hair and that's all he talks about when you pick him up. At 7 yrs old this kid already is girl crazy.
