Conrad and the Cowgirl Next Door by Fretz and Barretta

_140_245_Book.1325.cover

This is an adorable little children’s book. It is about a little boy Conrad, who goes to visit his uncle’s ranch. He things he is prepared with his Mega Ultimate Extreme First Aid Kit. He seems to get into trouble at every turn. You can just imagine all the things little boys can get into on a ranch!

Through it all, there’s the nosy little neighbor girl, Imogene. She likes to tell him how to do things, and to beat it all, that little girl is right most of the time. If only she could tell him before he gets into trouble.

In the end, Imogene needs a little help herself, and there comes Conrad, with his Mega Ultimate Extreme First Aid Kit!

I was given a free copy of this book by the publisher, in exchange for an honest review.

  • 20 Months old in a few days
  • Has learned about 10 new words this month, including “no.” She can whine, too. “NoooooOOoo, MooooOOmmmy.” 🙂 Other words are yes, good girl and uh-huh (with a whole-body nod)
  • Can get out of bed by herself, which Jackson nor Timothy learned to do
  • Looks funny when she tries to give kisses
  • Loves to sing (in bed instead of falling asleep)
  • Throws her head back in despair, and sometimes her spine just can’t hold her up… when she doesn’t get her way. Also throws herself in the floor sometimes (oh dear!)
  • Loves to climb (see below)

My Son, the Engineer

Sometimes the boys play so creatively. Yesterday was one of those days. Jackson was playing in the yard and started using some old pipes and guttering that was laying around. (We bought a fixer-upper… and we always are!) He connected it and put bowls or buckets between each piece. It was so cute! So… I let him turn on the water hose for a couple minutes to try it out. Once, he had a pipe going up the ladder on the slide so it could go down the slide and catch another pipe at the bottom. I love it! It never worked like he thought, but it made it almost to the last pipe by the end of the day. He was so excited when it went into the bowl before that last pipe! My son… a genuis 4-year-old! 🙂

The Big Event

We’re all smiles today! It’s been a whole season since the kick-off of the last big event!

The ramps are in place, the gas cans are filled.

The blades have been sharpened, and bolted back on!

We’ll miss Daddy! We have to kiss him because he’ll be gone… two hours!

It’s time, it’s time! It’s mowing season!
