Here is a picture of Fischer with his 5th cousins!!!

Here's a picture of my grandpa and the cousins

This is the Sewell family tree. It got destroyed in a tornado. In the background is the Oak Grove Church of Christ and the cemetary where all of the relatives are buried.

Fischer fell asleep on the way home from a playdate so I put him in bed when we got home. He's not real great about staying asleep after a short nap in the car. So, after about an hour of listening to him say, "No" and "Mine"(Definitely re-living moments at the playdate) I went in to find him like this:

I don't know why he does this but he loves to be in the dark! He will just sit under a blanket, hide in the dark closet and go into the dark bathroom and shut the door!

Fischer is petrified of snakes! Of course he does have good reason, considering he witnessed his grandpa hesitantly catching a snake in our backyard(It was quite a sight)! We have a slight snake problem in our neighborhood. They are just harmless snakes, however they are black and ugly and seem to be getting bigger and bigger. Last night Fischer was playing in his sandbox when he said to me, "Mama...SSSSSSSS.....SSSSSSSS.....Mama.....SSSSSSSS....SSSSSSSSS." Of course I knew that he was trying to tell me there was a snake in his sandbox. So, I went over and investigated and this is what I found:

A small piece of grass that was curled up like a snake!I have tried hard to teach him the difference between real and pretend, but I just don't think he gets it yet. If I even draw a snake on a piece of paper he will cry and run the other way!

Then Franklin went outside this morning and a BIG snake came out from underneath the deck! He called the neighbor boy over and he caught it. We tell him to take them to the field, but I think they are finding there way back here.

So, if anyone needs a pet snake please come over and get one out of our backyard!!!

New pics of Fischer

It's amazing how fast Fischer is growing up! He can eat corn on the cob, he can count to six and he can swing a baseball bat like a pro! We are looking forward to the summer...I am training to do a triathalon in July(a mini triathalon), and we will spend many weeks visiting family and friends! Nebraska is so pretty in the spring and summer and it makes the long, cold winter worth it! Fischer has made friends with the neighbor kids and they are always ringing the doorbell to see if he can play! I thought we had at least another year before that happened!
