I have to say, we received a lot of compliments about how mellow Sniper was, and what a good kitty he was. He really was great, though he wasn't too sure about the horse and cow. Iowa sure has some interesting pets...
After only going to school a few weeks, Elise has gotten the pledge down pretty well. I'm so proud of her - there's a lot of big words to learn!
(Every time we drive by Kid's World in Sac City, without fail, Elise points out her little friend's preshool. This time was no exception.)
Robert did a great job at patching the pipe about a month or so ago, but it finally just busted through. It was BAD. Nothing in the bathroom or basement (the bathroom was an add-on at some point, so the water just sprayed onto the dirt in the crawl space), so that saved a big headache.
Could have been worse, but it wasn't, so I'm grateful.
OH! Another thing to be happy about - the plumber owes Robert for some computer work, so his call will just be deducted from the bill, so nothing out of pocket!
I told Abby that her little best friend just started riding her bike without training wheels, so as soon as Daddy came home, she asked him to take her training wheels off. She's asked before here & there over the summer, but always at times it couldn't get done.
I told her that it might take practice before she figures out balance, but she got it right away, albeit a little bit wobbly, but we have our lumpy, bumpy, cracky sidewalk to thank for that!
