An Old Dog With A New Bone

We have been giving Pepper dog bones to try and keep her entertained (and reduce the chewing of our items). The problem is Maison will occasionally get the bone and guard it. Pepper will not dare take it back from Madison. Madison is too old to chew the bone. She just won’t let Pepper have it. Wade and I find the entire situation pretty funny.

Tonight we thought we had a solution. We gave each dog a bone. It went basically like it does with two toddlers. Pepper couldn’t stand it that Madison had a bone. She abandoned her bone and kept trying to figure out how to get Madison’s bone. She kept edging closer and closer to Madison. Madison never once chewed the bone but kept it in her sight or under her head the entire time. Wade and I were dying laughing.

For those curious – Madison eventually fell asleep. Pepper stole the bone. Madison never even remembered there was a bone.

The Expressions Of Alex

Alex was quite tolerant of me as I took pictures today. He even got excited and told me all about his two Lego guys and their adventures. (It’s very rare I get so much out of him these days.)

Surfing. Surfing USA

These guys thoroughly enjoyed their last swim lesson of the session. They lucked out and were the only two to show up so they got Joey (and the surfboard) all to themselves.

Special Days

Today was all about Kaitlyn. She wanted to try out the new game she found in her activity book. Then we stopped for a special treat while we were out running errands. She’s always been my errand buddy.

Dancer

Kaitlyn’s dance class only has four girls when everyone is in attendance. Today one girl was home sick. These three little ones still had fun. I’m going to miss next year when all classes have to be after school or or on weekends. Extracurricular activities are going to have much bigger class sizes.

Green As Green Can Be

I’m not sure we have ever done much for St. Patrick’s Day in the past. This year not only wore green, we baked, went to a party at church, and sang Karaoke! It was definitely a day the kids won’t soon forget. Now I’m just curious if there is a video out there anywhere I can hunt down…

Big Dreams

Wade and I did a thing. We bought a house. A second house. When we moved to Grafton, we were a little bit tight on time to find a house. We bought one we liked, but we quickly realized it wasn’t going to be a forever house. We have done quite a bit to our house to make it work for us. We have also tried to figure out how to make it work long term. We even found some good solutions, but they are fairly expensive and don’t solve all of our problems. We were getting really close to doing some major renovations on our current house to make it work for the next 5-7 years. Then last weekend we decided we might as well look at what was on the market for the equivalent of the renovations we were discussing. Imagine my surprise when the one house I have always considered my dream house was sitting at the top of the listing page!??! I immediately wanted to see the inside because rarely does the inside match my dreams. This time it was even better! I sent the listing to Wade and he scheduled a showing for Monday before he even finished looking at all the pictures. We both loved the house and immediately submitted an offer. We are now the owners of two houses – hopefully soon that will be down to one!
