change, checkers, and what are the chances?

{don't forget the giveaway...way...way...way...tomorrow, last day!}

change
it's what we all need
watched the inauguration
with my students
so hopeful
so powerful
i hope they always remember
where they were when...
it was just one of those days.

checkers
we came home
we got the checkers out
{and i use the term checkers loosely, as you can see in the pic}

and the littles mastered the rules
of jumping, capturing and winning
and
the little big guy asked if it was
the kind of game where you yell
"checkers"
when you win!
i told him he could do whatever
he wanted when he won...
and that he did!

what are the chances?
some faithful readers...
{all 3 of you}
may remember when i blogged
about the bees
today, same spot
same red light
i pulled into a swarm of about 100 bees!
no bee truck in sight this time,
but these buggers were swarming
our truck and the car in front
again we frantically rolled the windows up,
'cause you know, it was nearly 70 again today!
but i digress...
what gives with the bees people?
i might find a new way home...
afraid of what we will find next week!
