Updates, Life & Kids...and Suspicious Behavior...

     I haven't updated in a bit.  I do apologize...been a bit busy.  So updates:  weather is crazy here!  20 one day and 70 the next.  Sometimes it doesn't even wait a day at times it from morning to afternoon to night.  And that means...sick kids!  Ugh...plus Spring Break is this week.  I've been helping my oldest one practice softball...catching, hitting, ect.  Not much has happened here...made my husband fire up the grill last night!!! (Sausages, chicken, steak...yummmmm!). Went to Walmart yesterday and  Hero got a glove that will fit and a batting helmet with a face mask.  I played softball and we didn't have face masks on our batting helmets...we just watched out and didn't get hit.  I played hind-catcher so I got hit with balls & the occasional bat (not always accidental some people didn't like trash talk but we were informed to do it).  Anyways...when I went to town yesterday I completely forgot to pickup my son's medicine and order Princess' cake since her party is Saturday.  I am so far behind!!!  All had to go get my mom off the road the other day...her clutch went out when she was almost turning into her mile long driveaway.  My dad bought a new ranger (ATV) and he is loving it!!!
     I also forgot (I think) to update on monkey's checkup.  She had another ear infection but he says she is too little for her age.  33 inches tall and 22.50 lbs. at 2 years old.  So he wants me to make her gain weight (since I can't make her get taller) and come back in 3 months!  If she hasn't gained weight then he wants her to see a specialist.  I just figure she is like my 8 year old (she's smaller than her 6 year old brother) or my great aunt (she's 80) she has just now made it to 130lbs & is 5'2".  My mom, my grandmother, my grandfather, my bio dad and I are all tall...over 5'7".  My mom was 100lbs til she got older or pregnant.  I was 120lbs til I had 5 kids but even now I'm still between 135-140lbs. Princess is up to my chest at almost 10 and weighs 64lbs. So I think its just her...she'll be little!  But you know how dr.s are...  She doesn't eat a lot though...like we offer her food nonstop but never hardly eats!  She refuses meat except potted meat or turkey sandwiches.  She will chew it up (if she even touches it) then she spits it back out!  It's like she gets the flavor but nothing else which he says isn't good!  I hope she gains she we don't have to see a specialist in June.  Oh and I forgot the nurse went to take her vitals like weight and height and that child is soooooooo antisocial ...you would have thought she was getting a shot or something!  Dr says that's just her personality...but I don't know.
     On to the kids...as I said its Spring Break...but I have 2 grounded!  CrazyHorse was suspended off the bus from Thursday til the 24th...but then Friday at 2 I got a call and since I wouldn't let them paddle him or send him to ISS (Honeybun's bully's mom is over it) then he got 1 day suspension.  Then at 2:15 I got another call about Princess (whom has never been in trouble at all) saying the same thing...one day suspension. She tried to get me to take my kids off the do jot paddle list but I didn't budge since when her husband was principal last year and honeybun got her one & only paddling ever he held her hands down while someone else did it and never called me (it says they are to call before or try something else no drastic first which they didn't and they are not suppose to hold any part of the child which they did in the school district handbook).  So my kids are on there for a reason and they'll stay there...no matter how much she keeps trying to get me & my husband to change our minds.  My kids don't like school much anymore which is sad considering they use to cry even if they had to get checked out even 5 minutes early.  If I had the cash & patience they'd be homeschooled.
     Now...suspicious behavior...not my crew...the neighbors across the road in the woods.  Couple months ago I called the cops (sheriff since its out in the county) because the teen girl was down here across the road at the old house place (think falling in, ect) with her friends looking for something in the woods.  Whatever it was they found it and then 2 of the boys started fist fighting over it.  (Same teen girl who rode up and down the road checking all of our mailboxes) (same family that use to live here're and they had a man hunt after the guy that was here was high on drugs, beat the lady and went on he he run in the woods)...but back to last night.  I called the cops about 11pm about flashlights all in the woods and a vehicle parked over there (they tore the you down yesterday and burned it and covered it up...new owners...anyways nothing is left but a fallen in shed and a storm shelter and the trachoe  the construction people used) so the cops came maybe 30 minutes later (yeah...same thought...) anyways they got loud with here and about 20 minutes later she left and never came back but they knew we called because they kept kept shining their lights at my house...but I called because I didn't want the trachoe to get stolen and it was weird due to they were looking in the he ss same me area that the teen girl had with the earlier occurrence.  They were putting stuff in the heir vehicle out of the he woods and such too.  They finally left about 3am.  I didn't go to sleep til they left but would you not consider that weird and suspicious behavior?
     That's really all that's been happening except for working around the house and yard work and such.
