They are Growing Like WEEDS!!!

Well...it is Official!!! School in our city has let the kids out for the summer!!! The last day of classes was Friday...but summer holidays don't start until you find out what the report card said!!! And today was that day! First thing this morning, we were up and running our little heels off to get to those report cards! Everyone was happy to hear that they passed and are not grounded!! lol
Morning had just barely passed us when Lilsista phoned to say she was about 3 houses down, and letting a herd out of her vehicle! Yippie!!! LOTS of children to play!
In total there were 11 kids in my back yard today! Now...you would think that this would be a nightmare and super duper loud wouldn't ya??? well today (oddly) you would be wrong! Lilsista brought her 5 + 1 friend, I have my 3...and the 2 from next door made the total weed- oops...did I say that? I meant head count 11!!!
can you spot the perp? yep! they are ALL guilty of something!!! Those are the three grandsons that Grampie always dreamed of....they are even silly like him...(some of the things those twins do....they are hilarious) The one in the middle is mine (and he too is rotten)...they are trying to see if they are triplets!
There's a 5 year old missing from this photo....but he doesn't belong to us...so it is okay...lol
This is the majority of the gang....see? they are all smiling...no arguments no nothing! They are all getting so big! We had a very good time. What did we do you ask???
Well...we tested the strength of the tree house....All 12 of them (I was on the ground taking the shots) were in the tree house (Lilsista included) One of the girls said she saw momma Robin feeding a BABY BIRD!!!! So we HAD to check....but didn't see much
That tree house was a little unstable with all of us in it...especially me and you know who...
I also don't think Momma Robin was impressed....it looks like she is mouthing some choice words at us...don't believe me? see for yourself!
Looks like she is saying very bad words under her breath...so we left the tree house to give her some space...
I had a bunch of tattoos in a jar...brought them out...and everyone got at least three tattoos...some had 4..but who's counting!
Then the clouds rolled in, it was getting windy...started to rain...and ....it was time for supper to be cooked...so Lilsista headed for the hi-way...and I cooked supper.
Maybe ...we will have to grace her house with some slurpees tomorrow or the next day...but we won't make it a for sure...gotta keep that little brat off guard...
Thanks for the visit guys!

oh tootsie, you and your sister remind me of myself and my sisters. My one sister lives over a block and we would get together all the time when our kids were younger and my yard always looked like yours, between our own children, nieces, nephews and also the gathering home for all the neighbour kids. Oh lordy, the days it would rain, nothing to have 15 to 20 kids in the recroom. I actually didnt mind as i always knew where my kids were. After the summer, i was ready for a much needed rest. Congrats on your children passing.
hugs
janet

Okay...Pleezzzzee...anyone know a good surgeon?...Did you see my side profile in the treehouse? What the....? I guess I wasn't adopted after all...I have my parent's nose fur sure. Hailey is sure it is from all the lying I did when I was a kid! I told her that couldn't be possible or else my nose would be dragging on the floor :0) ! Ha! I think I'm painting the fence tomorrow if it's nice out...I will probably need a slurpee...so i don't get too "sweaty" Hee,hee... Bye!

I remember when I had no nerves also ;-) Your a trooper. They must have a long school year or maybe they do not start in August like here.It makes one remember how you use to live for school to be out and warm summer days to play.

trash talk said...

Now that's summer the way I remember it when my kids were still in school! I was never happier than when I had half the neighborhood in my yard!
We never knew how many we would have at dinner or overnight and I miss that so much. The house was always so alive.
Good looking bunch of kiddos y'all got there!
Debbie

janet said...

thanks for stopping over tootsie. We go for rides down in what is refered to around here as the county, they have some little family owned shops, and normally have some neat little things. Some of the stores are expensive but i bought the pear for around 6 dollars which i didnt think was bad in stores such as these. Thank you for stopping by and for your sweet words.
hugs

What a great summer the cousins share! It's special that you guys live so close and get along so well.

Shelia said...

Oh, how cute, Tootsie! Love the shots of all the kiddies having fun! Now that's a set of triplets if I've ever seen any! LOL Precious little boys! This kind of reminds me of when I was a child. All the kids came over to my house - I had the swing set and a lot to play soft ball in! :)
Hope you had a great Canada Day!
be a sweetie,
Shelia :)
