Healthy body, healthy spirit, healthy mothering. This is the journey I have set out on with my two amazing children.

AND NOW, LADIES AND GENTLEMEN!
IT'S TIME TO PLAY ANOTHER ROUND
WHO DOESN'T KNOW THE LYRICS?
Please allow me to introduce our first contestant and the reigning champion
Kelen is a 9 year old attending the 3rd grade. He enjoys playing his Nintendo DS, whittling and being a Cub Scout.
LET THE GAMES BEGIN!
While listening to Alan Jackson we have the following new lyrics.
"Don't Rock the JUICEBOX" as opposed to jukebox. :)
"Where I Come From" the line says a lot of front porch sittin' but Kelen sings "A lot of front porch CHICKEN"
He will never give up his championship title. No sirree.

Now, I am not going to write about my own superstitions. I have wayyyy too many to list. But when she asked what superstitions we, her readers, have, I got to thinking...And what I started thinking about was my Grandpa Shook.
Grandpa Shook said you should never ever kill a daddy-long-leg spider because that'll make it rain. At least that is the thought in my head. I don't actually remember Grandpa saying this to me but I KNOW that mom always told me that Grandpa Shook said it. So now I am wondering, DID Grandpa ever actually say this? I pass it on as something he did indeed say.
Every so often my heart gets a little flutter because I hear my kids talking to each other while watching a daddy-long-leg make his way across our home. They don't kill him. EVER. Why?
Because they know that Grandpa Shook said you should never ever kill a daddy-long-leg spider. The wisdom of Grandpa has been passed on in our family and this new generation of Shook's never even met him.
How cool is that?

The rug is made out of recycled soda bottles. I am all about the recycling (although I would rather there was no plastic to NEED to be recycled) but anywho. The one bad thing about this is that the rug is shipped all the way from Thailand and that is a WHOLE LOTTA fuel for a rug. Wish they were locally made but they are fair trade and it is a start. The fact that the rug can be washed off with a garden hose sounds interesting. I just wonder how it will feel on one's feet. Sticky and plasticky? That would be ok for outside under the patio table or is it ok for in the house? Hmmmm. Take a look at their website and decide for yourself.
