Last week my nephew called me and asked to spend the weekend with me.  I had told him that we were going to start working on him learning how to cook some quick and easy stuff.  At 12 years pf age, he should know how to do some stuff.  My niece called me to see if I could keep her two kids (Shy 4yrs old  and Nic 1 yr old). I agreed to help her out because she had to work the weekend.   I had a house full of kids and they were busy!!  Hats off to all yall moms out there.  Here are some pics from the weekend.

Little Nic was yelling at Solomon at first.

 Zac and I was trying to show Shy how to jump rope. She was jumping her little heart out but just wiggling the rope infront of her. LOL!!  What do they do in recess/ PE in pre-K??  They don't jump rope I guess! She was not discouraged she kept trying on and off the whole weekend.  :) She will get it.

Nic !!

 We got to the barn and I looked down at Shy's shoes.   I told her she had them on the wrong foot.  She put her hand on her head and said " AHHH man  I ALWAYS get them wrong!!" :)  But she can tie her own shoes!!

I got on Felix and rode for less than 2 minutes and I hear "Auntie I got to use it!!!" Not "potty" but "use it" !  Where did she learn that??  Damn what timing!!   I had to get off and take shy into Jenny-O's house to the bathroom.   
Lil Nic was walking all over the place with his unsteady drunk man walk. He would have about 3 good solid steps followed my at least 2 unsteady ones.   Even Solomon just watched him.  He got used to walking around Solomon.  At first he did not want Solomon sniffing or looking at him.   Before the weekend was over he was walking back and forth around him. He never got brave enough to touch him.

Zac was busy all weekend playing games on my Kindle and playing with the kids.   I looked around at one point and Shy was laying on the bed singing to and petting Solomon.  His eyes were almost closed and he was loving it.  Now I'm sure she will be back asking me about him EVERY TIME she see me.

They all seem to have fun.  I had fun too!!  They are funny.
