House Sitting

So I took over house sitting today (my sister had been with them the past 4 days) and I got here yesterday and tonight their parents fly in. They are adorable kids and full of a lot of spunk and spitfire! I let them play with my camera and took some pictures myself of their beautiful house and will post those tomorrow. I would right now but this dumb mac doesn't have an sd card slot like my pc does:)

I learned some great facts from a kids book-

*Ants don't sleep*

*An ostrich's eye is bigger then its brain*

*Butterflies taste with their feet*

*Dolphins sleep with one eye open*

*Slugs have four noses*

*Sharks don't have any bones*

*Crocodiles can't stick out their tongues*

*A duck's quack doesn't echo*

*A snail can sleep for three years*

*All polar bears are left handed* 

*A mole can dig 295 feet in one night*

*Kangaroos can't walk backwards*

*The longest recorded flight of a chicken is 13 seconds*

*Cows can go up stairs but not down* 

*A hedgehog's heart beats around 300 beats per minute*

I don't know if those even interest anyone.. but I really like animals and I end up learning a lot from kid's books! haha I also love reading our guinness book of world records. It amazes me and disgusts me. I guess I like facts in general. One of the lame things about not having cable is not getting the discovery channel which is my favorite! IBear Grylls. I was going for a heart but couldn't figure it out on this laptop but the apple basically means the same thing.. 
I have had a lot of fun watching these kids and Race helped a lot last night. It's kind of like playing house! I feel pretty safe saying that there is no way I will ever have a house this nice though.. probably not kids as cute as these ones either.. but mine will be better behaved possibly:) We'll see! Well Quinn and I are going to head to the library while her brothers are in school.. let's see if I can get her away from the boob tube.. 

Have a fantastic day!!
