I just got these pictures from my sister-in-law of a snake that was found while my kids were staying at my in-laws for a few weeks this summer.

My Mother-in-law said that she found the snake in her garden and was waiting for my Father-in-law to come and get it to take it away. Well my crazy little boy went up and decided the snake looked like a good playmate and without any hesitation pick the thing up.
All boy! AAAAHHH!
The crazy thing it that they were able to get Kalli to even hold and touch the snake, although she doesn't look all that thrilled with the whole thing.
Kalli being brave
They were able to convince Tarek that snakes have germs and so if you touch a snake you need to wash your hands afterwards really good! Now he thinks that you can find snakes anywhere and often times will asked me to go outside and help him find a snake that he can put into a box to keep. After which he informs me that it will be okay, if we see one, he will pick it up so that I won't have to touch it!! Already aware of how I really feel about creatures. It always amazes me the things my kids will do when I am not around!

I have also been meaning to put a few pictures of Kalli up at the beginning of soccer this year. She has had a ton of fun and got to play on the same team as Kaydra and Madison (my cousin's daughter) and her coach Madison's mom.
Kalli getting ready for her first soccer game
They have really started to figure out the game and how to play, along with passing and getting open for others. We have told Kalli that if she scores a goal we will take her for ice cream after, she has been told this for the last few years and we had gotten the better end of the deal as she had not scored a goal yet. Well she broke that curse this year and scored a goal in both of their first two games! She was extremely excited and proud, and of course happy to finally get her ice cream
