munch, munch, munch

Yes, that sound you hear is me eating my words! I promised Baker I would set the record straight. Our paunchy little pooch passed his doggie training final. He even has the certificate to prove it. (Frankly, I think the teacher, who also happens to be our next door neighbor, just loves him and fudged his scores a bit...but don't tell Baker I said that, o.k.?)

Another update--there still have been no actual broken bones since the discovery of swing jumping. But there is a bruise about as big around as a saucer on Gray's leg. And Max is sporting a nice fat split lip. Miss Annie is still unscathed...because she's too scared to jump from more than about a foot off the ground (and believe me, this is just as well!).




And, totally unrelated to anything, we made a successful haul from the thrift store today...5 shirts and a book for Annie, 4 shirts and a light sweatshirt and a book and a pair of boots (to grow into) for Gray, 3 shirts for Max, a book and a pair of shoes for Rich, and a pair of shorts and a shirt and a pair of shoes for me...all for 38 dollars!

You've gotta love the thrift store! One thing that I'm gonna do tomorrow without Hannah and Jacob here is do a little shopping. Bridget desperately needs a new pair of shoes as her feet continue to grow at break-neck speed. And if it ever warms up around here, we all need something other than wool sweaters to wear! Great finds, BTW :-)

Yeah for Baker! I knew he could do it, what a good boy :)

That's quite a haul! Love the pictures, and you *know* I love seeing anything remotely related to books, LOL!
