More than a few times this month, I've had others tell me how they just don't understand teenagers; aren't comfortable around them; don't know what to say to them; and how they just can't relate to them.
I think they're great! I had a chance to get to know more of them this week at my work; Loved it!
This weekend we had some fun teen time! Friday night was spent at the homecoming game watching B-boo perform at half-time. Then it was food. I'm sure I got several looks as I walked in with a group of them. And then we had fun playing hearts until I just couldn't stay awake another minute!
But, what people may not know about *my* group of teens is how awesome they really are! You see, their purpose for spending the weekend at my house? It was to give up their Saturday so they could come help clean up my back yard. And it's a HUGE back yard.
We had fun raking leaves, trimming rose bushes, digging up stray palms and using a chain saw! Oh..and breaking the chain saw. Which led to the following video!
They were trying to break off the dead branch without a chain saw! Hubby did get it going again, but not before the above incident! LOL
After several hours of work, I finally asked them to pose for a group picture. And I got this:
The first was too dark, because they were in the shade.
B-Boo & Twin are goofing off & causing problems.
