The other day I was out playing on the swing set with Emma and Meilynn. All of a sudden Emma says, "There's a monkey!" I think, oh she is just playing. But then she repeats it. So I think that maybe she has seen a small dog or cat. I pick her up and tell her to show me where it is. I head in the direction she is pointing, towards our new addition. As we get closer I keep asking her where it is and she keeps pointing straight ahead. As I get closer to the new part of the house she is clinging on tighter and tighter and hiding her head in my shoulder. I ask her again where it is and she points to this. Can you see a Monkey? Now can you? This is an old light that was on the outside of our house. They removed the fixture and this is the hole with the wires. I think it does look a little like a monkey at first glance. If you think about the kind of monkeys with the little white faces? Here it is closer! Emma was afraid to go in our backyard for about a week after the Monkey incident!

"There's a Monkey in our backyard!"
I cannot figure out how to make this blue, underlined writing stop! So bear with me until I can ask one of the computer literate people in my house how to change it. I am liking my new mac computer, but am finding some things that I cannot figure out myself. And rather than not posting at all I am going ahead and writing this cute little story.
