Theme Thursday = Wild

A favorite book to read at bedtime
when my boys were small! Little Boys...they are the
perfect definition of WILD!
  • Wiggly
  • Impetuous
  • Loud
  • Devilish
"The night Max wore his wolf suit
and made mischief of one kind and another
his mother called him "WILD THING!"
and Max said "I'LL EAT YOU UP!"
so he was sent to bed without eating anything."

  15. Can you believe it but I never read this book and still haven't! I suspect you will se the movie when it comes out, right?

    Yes, boys can be quite wild. There is no fun in play unless it has that certain element of danger!

  26. Haven't heard from you in a while. Are you still keeping up with the races? I was hopeful of the #24 possibly winning the championship. After last week...not quite sure.

  27. Pat ~ 3 weeks...wow...I bet you had a great time!

  28. Rebecca ~ who me? Of course I'm keeping up with that #24! :)

  29. Betsy, thank you for your suggestion about the trip being an educational experience. We are not worried about Avery with her grades. We are concerned about the rule with the school board. We will do some checking into it being something we can use if it's possible. Thanks so much
