At my house

At my house today it is quiet .
My son left yesterday for a 15 day school trip
to the outback .
I have the day off today so I am going to
clean his room from top to bottom .
I might even find his football .
I think it's fairly normal at 5.30 am
as you're leaving for the trip of a lifetime
to climb up on sheds looking for your football .

Well it's a pretty normal thing to do at my house .
See houses more normal than mine at Lou Lous .

That's the sort of thing my boys would do too! Never thought of us as normal before that could take some getting used too, Lol.

Boys, go figure them....

Find the missing ball yet?

Wow 15 days in the outback what a great experience. I have 2 weeks of school hols and an 8 year old with too many junky showbags! :-)

It sounds pretty normal for a boy. lol. I have intentions of spring cleaning my 16 year olds this week too. Very depressing as we have been having mould problems this winter but I don't want to end up bleaching the carpet. Cherrie

Serenata said...

Good luck with the room...there is something about teenage boy's rooms that is slightly dangerous! ;-D

Hope he has fun.

Oh boys. I have all of that to look forward to - LOL!

You will have a much quieter house for a while. I hope you get to make the most of it and not miss him too much.

Thanks for giving us a peek into your house. Lovely to visit. Lou.

Of course as you do, sounds like important boy stuff to me. I hope your boy enjoys is school trips sounds like a great adventure to have.:)

I know he'll have an awesome trip. Awesome things come from the Northern Territory, like my 4 children!! Beautiful morning in Gundagai - are you going to the Snake Gully Cup?? I'll be in town but i'm banished from going, my husband wants to have fun (his words) so i'll hang with the children. Love Posie

did you find the football?
interestingly, when my daughter went away i cleaned her room from top to bottom and for the five days that she was away it was beautiful....and then she came home ;-)
hope your son has a great time away

Sounds normal to me, my brothers would have done the same - looking for footballs at 5.30am.
