wants to be a Drill Sergeant!!!! Arghhhh!

Can you tell thegrandson wants to be a MEAN drill sergeant???

Needless to say, he doesn't care about the possible wrist fracture this poor soldier is incurring! I have always said, we do not need to buy all the latest toys on the market, kids will make do with whatever is available at the moment. Thegrandson used little cat figurines that I had - somewhere (not even sure) - they were my twin sisters, and then added a few other small toys to apparently make this soldier's workout more grueling. What a trip to watch this kid play...he has an unbelievable imagination and sense of creativity - and this is just great.

The weather today is supposed to barely hit 70 degrees - how cool is that. I love it when the AC does not have to run and I can open the windows for FRESH AIR!! Alas, the poor kid may find it to chilly to even jump in the Olympic sized pool also - too bad, so sad!

I'm still watching the Olympics (USA vs China in basketball at the moment), and was elated to see Dara Torres win the 400 relays for the silver medal last night. She is the 41 year old swimmer and now holds the record for the "oldest" medal winner in swimming. Just a note: there is a 68 year old China man competing in the Equestrian field. Amazing!

Enjoy the day and the sunshine...TTFN.

Uh oh. I think your grandson would be one tough sergeant.

Wasn't it lovely today? We didn't have to turn the AC on until about 4:30 p.m. and it was fabulous.
