Little Miss Muffet

Little Miss Muffet sat on her tuffet
eating her curds and whey.
Along came a spider and sat down beside her
and he took her spoon away.
She pulled her bowl near, not out of fear
but because she was not going to share.
The spider said "please", he got down on his knees,
And Muffet said "don't you dare!"
Spider batted his eyes and to Muffet's surprise,
She felt her resolve give way.
She said "Oh dear", come over here,
and she shared her curds and whey.

Sprouting like weeds

The grandbabies arrived from Alaska in May and have adjusted pretty well to the climate down here in the Midwest. Mom (Our eldest daughter)and Dad are in the Air Force and just got transferred to a base just an hour away from us. They all have been battling colds and little viruses and coughs (the germs are different down here from the ones in Alaska). Julia is 5 and Zack is 2 and together they are quite a wonderful handful. Our other grandson Noah (also 5) is not sure he likes sharing our attention. He and Julia are slowly becoming friends. We have four more grandbabies due between now and February. So the next 7 months should be very exciting! My husband said that our family is starting to sprout like weeds!
