This is one statement you wouldn't expect your 6 year old to say about the family dog. But this is exactly what Emma just told me about 5 minutes ago. Odd statement since we don't live anywhere near water. "What's a fish doing outside?" I think to myself. I run outside where Emma has been walking Jacoby. Only to find him eating a baby bird. Oh dear Lord what do I do? I don't want to traumatize Emma more that she probably already is with having witnessed this event. So I did what every normal freaking out momma would do, call her neighbor who is an ER vet. Well, needless to say he doesn't have to much experience with baby birds. He suggested that I call animal control, or flush it. You want me to do what? Flush it. You have got to be kidding me. I am not equipped to deal with this today. I offered my neighbor $10 to deal with it for me, but I think he thought I was kidding. I wasn't. So, Emma and I went out gathered the baby bird, said a little prayer and sent him down the toilet. Please forgive me Lord. I didn't know what to do with it. It wasn't going to live much longer. And yes, Jacoby had eaten another little bird. Disgusting I know. I am going to give him a bath and attempt to brush his teeth. Gross. All I can say is that I don't think I will let him give me a kiss anytime in the near future. Eww... Not sure if you will find this picture fascinating or just plain wrong, but here is a picture of the baby bird.

Okay, so I know it has been 4 months since my last post. Things have been crazy so far this year, but it is no excuse. I have been neglectful of my blog. I promise to do better. Pinky swear. Today Emma had her first soccer game. What a fun time watching my baby play her very first game, ever. The name of her team is the Polar Bears, hence the white jersey's. So they lost, the only point scored for the Polar Bears was by the other team. Oh well, we will take what we can get I suppose. But after only 2 practices what would you expect? Emma got the ball two times, and ran towards the other teams goal two times! Here are a few pictures taken today. Enjoy. Today also marks the 1 year anniversary of my Uncle's passing. I just know that he was up in heaven laughing so hard at Emma going the wrong way. I am sure a couple of times I even heard him say, "Soonnn". We miss you Uncle Greg and hope you enjoyed watching Emma today. We love you!
