Because my sister and her husband aren't busy enough already, they both have project cars and entered them into a car show this weekend. My sister won best convertible with her totally cute '63 Falcon and Ron didn't win anything but took his '63 Fairlane, which he is turning into a race car, along. Their friend, Dave, won best un-restored for his '63 Comet Wagon that is parked behind Ron's car in the second picture. Shana said that Ron's car got lots of talk which I am sure upset him - not!

As always I am into something new. Through KTOX I am now involved with Bounce Radio (www.bounceradio.net) an Internet radio station. My show runs each Friday evening from 5 to 6 our time.
This morning I am on assisting our lady in London, Foxxy, get her show Breakfast with Foxxy launched (6 to 9 AM our time). Anywho, Bounce also runs Dave’s (owner of KTOX) morning show, Don’t Start Me Talking, from 9 to noon (our time). Next week I will be taking over the reins from Dave for four days (Thursday/Friday then Monday/Tuesday). So if you would like to hear GrandBob make a fool out of himself tune in to www.bounceradio.net , politics, music, and lord only knows what else. Bounce plays some great music throughout the day and night – lots of new unsigned bands.
GrandBob is a very talented radio personality and has the perfect voice for it too. I encourage everyone to check out his stuff. I will add the Bounce Radio link to my list!

Today was Noah's kindergarten graduation ceremonies. Yes, it may seem a bit silly to have such a thing but that's only if you aren't a proud parent. Each child was called up and Mrs. Kutch listed off some of their accomplishments and said a little something about "her kids." Noah has excelled this year and is more than ready for first grade. The kids, throughout the year, were asked to write in their math journals. Noah won an award for writing to the highest number. He was also recognized for winning the counting to 100 (or beyond) award, reading the 100 word list, becoming a super citizen (manners award), etc. We were truly blessed to start off Noah's schooling in a great school with a great teacher.

Noah is reading the Captain Underpants chapter books. In the books are sections called Flip-O-Rama. You flip back and forth really fast to see the action. Noah asked, very politely I might add, that I add his armpit fart Flip-O-Rama to our blog. Since you can't flip the pages back and forth Noah suggested scrolling up and down really fast. Hey, at least he's good for a laugh!

Noah: I think koalas are really cute.
Mom: I do too.
Noah: Can we get one someday?
Mom: No, we wouldn't be able to take care of it properly, especially since eucalyptus leaves are it's favorite food.
Noah: They eat leaves? I didn't know that, but we could play with it and pet it and take it places with us.
Mom: You know Noah, even though koalas are cute they actually are very very mean and would probably bite you.
Noah: Why would they bite me? Could I throw them a ball?
Mom: Why would you throw a koala a ball?
Noah: So we could play fetch! (Noah is getting a bit frustrated at this point.)
Mom: Koalas don't like to play fetch.
Noah: They eat leaves, don't like to play fetch....well, could it sleep in my room with me like Buddy does sometimes?
Mom: Why would you want a mean animal to sleep in your room with you? They would rather sleep in a tree?
Noah: A tree!?! Koalas don't sleep in trees!
Mom: Yes they do.
Noah: No they don't! And yes they do like playing fetch and sleeping with me!
Mom: Noah, I'm not trying to be mean, I'm just trying to teach you a little bit about koalas and trust me, you wouldn't want one as a pet.
Noah: Other people have Koala's as pets, I've seen them!
Mom: Are we talking about the same thing? (I'm getting frustrated now.)
Noah: Yes, the koala DOGS that ARE cute, DON'T eat leaves and LIKE to play fetch.
Mom: OHHHH, you mean a chihuahua.
Noah: Yes, that is what I said the first time a chi-Wa-La
Mom: Yes, Noah a chi-wa-la would make a fine pet.
Noah: Why are you laughing? It's not funny!!
Mom: Yes, it really is.
Noah: So can we get one?

Oliver was treated to his first haircut by our good friend and neighbor Cherie. He did great for her and sat pretty still throughout the entire cut. It's amazing how much older he looks without all the flyaway baby hair all over his head.
Noah's school had a PTA sponsored variety/talent show for the kids to perform in. Mrs. Kutch taught her kids how to sing and sign a song "A your Adorable" and entered them in the show. Noah is on the left side (looking at the stage) in his orange polo shirt. The bottom picture is when the class was done with their song and they were signing/spelling "t-h-e e-n-d, the end" I told Joel when we left that it was a show that was incredibly cute and incredibly painful all at the same time. There were 40 acts entered in the show. We were very proud of Noah for getting up in front of so many people and singing with his class. He says he is going to sing the Veggie Tales theme song next year.
