10.5 years old!

Happy half birthday, LOMZ!

(Okay, we don’t know Ziggy’s birthday exactly, but the vet says he was about 1 when we got him, which was around the boys’ birthday, so we pretend they have the same birthday.)

The 125 previous months can be seen here.

Month 125

Don’t worry, I took this on the right day, just didn’t have time to post until now.

The smiles were purchased with pastries from Gracious Bakery on the way to school on the last day of LEAP testing. It’s been a grueling week, so they needed a little treat for getting through it. (Not riding the bus was an added bonus.)

Only 3.5 weeks of fourth grade left! I can’t believe it! Those memes about the end of the school year are so, so true.

Outdoorsy stuff

Last week I went on a field trip with Oliver’s class and brought a camera. Here are some pictures I took of things besides 10-year-olds (except my own, of course.)

The program is called Earthkeepers and they teach it at the Jean Lafitte National Park (the Barataria Preserve in particular, I think) and it’s quite pretty. This all is sounding familiar. Did I blog about it already? When I went with Miles? Well, at least this time I have good pics.

I almost forgot today’s picture (gasp!) Between Mardi Gras and three sick children, it just slipped my mind until this evening, when Miles reminded me. So that’s partly why the picture was taken in the living room instead of outside. But I may have changed the location anyway since no one really felt like doing much today anyway.

Look at those rosy cheeks…

As of right this moment, they seem to be on the mend, but after battling vomit, asthma, ear infections, congestion, coughing, headaches, and fever for the last week, I just give up.

10 years + 1 month

As mentioned earlier, the boys are super into manga right now. They are also super into Funko Pop figures. So it follows that they are super-duper obsessed with manga-themed Funko Pops.

121months

Please don’t ask which figures they’re holding. No idea. But they would be happy to tell you about them in great detail.

Oh, and I’ve updated the Monthly Photos page since at 120+ pics, it was getting a tad unwieldy. Hopefully it’s a bit more user-friendly now.
