OK, so these pictures have nothing to do with this post . But, this cute little guy is my second son and he's mentioned below, so I am indulging myself by adding pics even ones that are five years old. And, I do love these scrumptuous pictures of him. This little guy is well known for his creative attire. Who said stripes/camo-shorts/cowboy boots don't work? Phish!

Yes, his eyes are really that blue and that big. No photoshop enhancing. And, I'm told he'll grow into those ears. I did not say that and if anyone says I did, I will deny it. I love my boys.
We read a book today in our homeschool called, "The Flag Maker." It is a story of a group of women who create the flag that was put at Fort McHenry outside Baltimore Harbor. The story explains how a man riding on a horse rides through shouting, "British sails! British sails," to warn the town that the British invasion was supposedly imminent.

Pausing to make sure he understood, I asked my six year old what it meant when someone shouted "British sails! British sails!" and he said, "I don't know, maybe the British people were selling stuff."

Oh, how I love homeschool.

ROFL! British Sails, British Sales! Too funny!

My oldest Austin has a big nogging and big ole ears that stick out. Especially when he smiles really big. I think he is just so adorable, even if he is goofy. The only thing about his big ears is that they are not balance by big blue eyes-- he's got small, almost black asian ones! Ah well, he is still a handsome fella. I'm sure the rest of his body will grow to match his ears. :) One day. hehehe
