Fried Crickets

So every 4 years when Brian teaches about John the Baptist in seminary he cooks up crickets for his student to eat. This year I refused to let him cook them inside the house, trust me they smell soooooo bad.

The kids were really excited to help him until they started cooking then all I heard was GROSS!

Brian tried really hard to get the kids to eat one, but of course they just said you first. Brian had to confess that he had never eaten one in all the years he has done this. Instead with each class he throws in a raisin and eats that while many of his students think he actually ate one, and then of course they all try it to. Well, this year his false advertising failed when he forgot to throw in a raisin for one of his classes and had to really eat a cricket. So how do they taste? "NOT TOO BAD" he admitted.

Music to my Ears

So, after a year of debating we finally got a piano.

We had to go all the way to Tucson to find this one, but the price was worth it. Brian was so determined, not to make a second trip to Tucson that he even went to 6 of the neighbors, of the family who sold us the piano, to have them help him get it into the back of the truck.

The kids thought that it was so cool to have the Piano in the back of the truck. Hopefully it did not drive our neighbors too crazy.

So, after rounding up the hlep of 4 great friends, we got it into the house.

The kids are having a lot of fun playing it right now. Hopefully that will still be the case after we start lessons.

I can't believe it, but my baby went to school yesterday and now I am actually home alone every School day for 7 hours! To celebrate I wasn't going to do any house work and just veg, but I got really bored and ended up doing some laundry.

Megan was upset that I would not let her ride the bus to school yesterday morning, but it is my right as the mom to take her on that first day right? Anyway I let her ride it this morning and she was sooooooo excited. Now the question is which project to start on!!!
