Day 144

This is Connor. He's in Jack's class. He's standing next to the habitat that he made for the diorama project. I asked him if he really did all that himself. He says he did. His parents corroborated.
He's an overachiever.

Day 143

This is a squat. He started out encased in a thick, white shell that dissolved in water with great fizzy, bubbly fanfare. Then the reveal . . . a ninja. Hi Ya!


I took this photo yesterday but didn't post it until today. Jack's been sick since Tuesday - strep throat - and I laid down with him last night at 8:00 to help him get to sleep. Don't know which one of us fell first but I woke up at 4:00 this morning and realized that I didn't post my photo, didn't turn off lights, left the dogs out all night, forgot to wash my face and brush my teeth. Naturally, I rolled over and went back to sleep.

Day 134

I started reading the first Harry Potter book to the boys last night. Tonight, I read Chapters 2 and 3. There's a little cliffhanger at the end of Chapter 3 and the boys begged me to go on. I was too tired though. I'm going to love doing this.

Day 133

Jack jumping into the pool at the Sullivan's for the first time this season.

Day 132

This is Dean's mouse, Dark Eye. She was last seen Saturday night under the armoire. I don't think she is in the house anymore. Her disappearance hasn't caused any heartache, though.
