could have had poop on my head.






Jo's first trip to the zoo. I know bad stinkin' mamma..but it cost 120.00 for this crew and well that's Alot!! But biting the zoo bullet we did and it was worth much more than what we paid...How much longer will I be able to take all my kids to the zoo together? Believe me I operate in this mode alot...able to stop and buy all them ice-cream,or pile up and watch yet another movie..You get the point..I see the years of having them all together few so I'm cramming....kinda like for a test but only for my heart..I saw so many first time or second time moms out there stressed (and I wanted to, but didn't say) "hey mama, slow it down sister." Nothing else matters as much as these incredible gifts before you...Time will go into warp speed somewhere along your journey not sure when it hit warp for me but I'm thankful it did..because I soak in my kids. I breathe in my kids and I would wrap myself around their little bodies if it wouldn't freak them out too bad...ok, I'm kidding...I used to worry that I didn't have enough time for myself and now I worry that one day I just might have only myself..except for the fact I have a wanna be cowboy who wears a straw hat better than anyone I have ever seen who, Lord willing will still be around and I'll just keep soaking him up..come to think of it we might be so old we won't have anything to soak up. Oh well, I'll blog about that when I can think about it without getting nauseated.
So enjoy the pics of Jo's first day at the zoo and please slow down sisters and laugh more and play more.......

until next time..

You are so right Ms. Robin. I have to be honest, somtimes I let the stresses of being so busy take away my joy of living in the moment. I am reminding myself daily to "slow it down sister." I like that!! Our family is taking a little trip to Sea World this weekend. I will be taking it all in. Every laugh, every smile, everytime I hear "look at that mama!"

Tell me that y'all were not at the Birmingham zoo on Wednesday! The reason I say that is that Rylee, Poppy and I were right across the street from the zoo on Wed. purchasing a car from a downtown dealership. We would have loved to have bumped into y'all!! Andi Lew

Please tell me you only go on Tuesday because it is half price day!! That is the only day we go to the zoo on!!! :) Glad you were able to make it to the zoo and it is such nice weather for August!

I too often sigh when I have to stop once again to look at a picture but the joy on their faces when I do and my pleasure in it is worth the few seconds of my time!

Hey Robin, Love the pics...sweet times...

Check into homeschool family membership at the zoo. I think we used to pay about $70 for the whole year and you can use it as often as you like.
