No Excuses,,,except

Alexis (sittin' on the purple cube) performing in the Once Upon a Time musical put on my their Summer of the Arts program.  She did a splendid job, as did all of those little cuties.
Zach spent a week in Tennessee with his Mom. This is the only picture she sent of his activities.
Here's Jaylen with one of her softball trophies.  This young lady is a great fast pitcher.

Jordan with her team won their 12 and under girls softball  State Championship and are now down in Panama City at the 12 and Under Softball World Series. GO Arkansas OutKast!
Jilly Beans had a birthday. Can you believe she's 6 already?
We had one good rain early this month.
I'll post some pics of our other monkeys as soon as I get some more recent ones.

Things I've found that irritate me this week.

1. Droopy Drawers.  Pull up yer pants fellas,,,geez!

Sagging pants was never meant to be fashionable. Prisoners wear their pants this low because belts are a popular way to commit suicide by hanging oneself, to hang others, or to use as a weapon in fights. Prisoners are also not allowed to have shoestrings for the same reasons. But there is an even more obvious reason why pants are sagging in prison. If the pants are below a man's bottom, it is to introduce to other men that he is homosexual. As Eazy E once said about women in skirts, "For easy access, baby."
I looked over and saw this while waiting to get a drink at the McDonald's drive-thru the other day. Ewww, ewwww, just ewww!

2. The incorrect usage of the word "twins".

One of  Zach's teachers mentioned her "two, twin, stepdaughters" or
Referring to twins as a pair of twins.

TWIN: either of two offspring produced at a birth or one of two persons or things closely related to or resembling each other.

consisting of two, twofold, double.

The teacher should only have mentioned she had twin step-daughters because the word twin takes care of the two part.  It's the same with pair because pair also means two.  Does that make any sense?

3. Casey Anthony.

Need I mention more?

LOL - Zach must have been tired from all the activities that you didn't get a photo of. :)

Those girls are growin' up TOO fast!! The chick looks really grown but then I assume she has on makeup although no matter what, she's a beautiful girl. Good for Jaylan and Jordan; such great athletes and beauties also!! Beans is so darn cute too. I know you're proud of all of them as you should be. Can't wait to hear what the others are up to this summer!!

Good to see you, and yeah I guess only southerners say dish rags and towels. LOL

When I was teaching i made them pull those pants up or leave. Why wear a belt when it just holds them around your hips.nice new header.

Love the header pic! The kids are gorgeous and talented, too! It's everything I can do not to yank some kids pants down when I see them hanging so low. If only they could see how goofy it really looks!

Great to see pics of your sweet kiddos! My boss was in Panama City all week - her stepdaughter was playing in a softball tournament there.
