Time waits for no man...or woman

Just when you think that $25 jar of wrinkle cream is working, someone, or some little kid, comes along and sees more wrinkles than you ever see in the mirror. Here is my story:

Steve and I walk every morning, almost. While we were walking the other day, we saw two little boys from church riding their bikes to school in front of us. One of the boys, Micah, fell off his bike and was laying on the ground in some kins of trouble and appeared to be upset over something. When we reached the boys we found that Micah had gotten his scarf wrapped around the inside of the peddle sprocket. He still had his scarf around his neck and couldn't get it off the pedal or his neck. Steve and I stopped and helped him, I took the scarf off his neck and Steve turned his bike upside down and unwound it from the bike. It didn't take long and wasn't that hard to do and soon Micah was on his way to school.

I saw Micah's dad a few days later and told him the story. The next morning Micah's mom, Kelly, called me and this is Micah's side of the story after Kelly asked him about it:

Yes, he did have some trouble with his scarf and bike and two old people stopped to help him. Kelli asked how he knew they were old, Micah replied: They had white hair and wrinkles. His brother then said he didn't think they were that old, he thought they were from church.

So there you have it. Steve and I are now the old people from church with white hair and wrinkles! Excuse me while I go eat a pan of rice crispy squares. :>(

P.S. I still trying to figure out why he was wearning a scarf when it was 80 degrees that day.

I've told you before, Linda: you guys will NEVER be old. You'll stay your same spunky selves. But that IS hilarious.

That is too funny....I have always wondered how the "younger generation" views us...apparently as very OLD!!!

Wait, you made rice crispy squares?

I hope that it didn't bother you! I assure you that you DO NOT look old. Micah also told me that his 1st grade teacher was old (she's about 35). Tyler made a comment the other day about me being professor Trelawny from Harry Potter for halloween. Micah said if I wanted to do that I would need to lose A LOT of weight. Somehow I knew this would make it to your blog!

Oh yes, the scarf. They try to get me to drive them in the morning because it is "too cold" So, I tell them to wear a jacket and they decide to get all decked out. That was the only day they did that though.

Oh the little imp! :) That really is TOO FUNNY! I think that Kelly could write an entire book on the things Micah says....

We USED to keep dog food in our clothes closet. Our closet is in our bathroom and that is also where our dog eats, so it's handy. In the 3+ years we've lived here we have never had ants. I have kept the dog food there for almost as long. Any suggestions on where to keep the dog food? As for the injuries, amazingly we haven't had any big ones yet. Micah and Jacob live life too carefully for boys, Ben on the other hand keeps me jumping, he's a daring and fearless child.
