Avery's bus was suppossed to be here at 8:07. Didn't come until 8:50! Aidan's came on time, 8:43ish. So we weren't sure who's damn bus it was! Brian asked. When Avery's bus came the bus driver said that she should be on the same afternoon one, but isn't on the list!! I have been trying to call over and over but it's just busy busy busy. So I decided to blog, and will call again later, lol.
Here's some pics from this morning.
My goofy son, ready for school:
Avery, not wanting to smile for the camera, but I made her, lol:
Avery realizing she has to go to school and get on a bus without her brother:
Poor kid. :(
In other news, Yesturday Brian was cleaning up the back yard and he moved the drained pool and out ran a mouse, with babies suckling on her just dropping off while she is running!!! She ran under something else with 3 of her babies, but on was left behind. Brian called me over because he knew I used to raise mice as pets. Well, I picked up the little baby mouse, not only about 1-2 days old and put it under where the mother mouse was, but she took off again, leaving all of her babies this time. So I yelled at Brian to go get the mother. I scooped up the little babies, some of which I had to pick out of little puddles of cold water!! Brian caught the mother mouse and I made her a nice cage. It's an old cage I used to have for my mice I had too many years ago. I threw in cedar chips, old TP rolls, a makeshift cave made from a garbage bag box with ripped up TP and cotton balls in it. I gave her water and bird seed. For hours she was just scared and sleeping and I keep pushing her babies over to her so they could get warm and nurse. She is really such a calm momma concidering that she is wild! Well, she finally sat on them all, nursed them all. She even got up late last night to eat and drink! There are only 4 babies, and I know that most litters have more than that, but both Brian and I went out like 3 times each combing through the grass and surrounding areas looking for more babies and found nothing. So, we saved the babies we did find. Here's a pic:
