We were pet sitting for our friend. His cat, Reepicheep, and our cat, Dufflepud, are mortal enemies.
One night we heard the low growls of an imminent cat fight. Matt went in to separate them. As he scooped up Reepicheep, she was in mid attack. Dufflepud was suddenly out of her reach but she decided that the hand in front of her would do.
From the other room I heard an "ARRRGGGHHH" that sound much more man like than cat like.
"That didn't sound good, " I responded. There was no reply. I entered the living room and saw Matt tightly hold his thumb and grimacing.
|Sam still loves to read. He read the Inkheart Trilogy in 3 days. The hard part is finding books for him with both safe moral content and an advanced reading level. Too bad they don't have "clear play" for books.|
|Mrs. Downare was the women's dean at Frontier School of the Bible. She is now my neighbor and friend. She came over and played the piano the other day for the boys. They really enjoyed it.|
|Each year after the Easter Egg Hunt, all the participants head to the library to listen to a story, have snacks, and hand out the prizes. They also reuse the plastic eggs year after year and that gives all of us an opportunity to unload the candy and return the eggs if we don't want to keep them. The pictures above and below are of our new library in the Lagrange Heritage Building.|
|They read a story about the perfect egg. After each page the librarian asked the children a question. Gideon answered each question as if it were specially directed to him. All of his answers made the rest of us roar with laughter. He was adorable.|
|The boys dug this pit in the yard by the fort. I thought it was dangerous and made them fill it in, but not before I took pictures. They had rigged up a bucket and pulley system and filled buchets and lifted them out by the pulley attached to the top of the fort. Elijah told me he was going to need me to give him a candle eventually to make sure the oxygen down there was good. Time to fill it up.|
