The sun and humidity aren't playing nice…but I think tonight, though I sit here dripping, the humidity has relinquished its hold on us – for now.  Tater had her first Cross-Country practice today…we took the dogs to the woods and then hung out at the park while she ran (with Highschoolers…sob.)  We brought along plenty to do…
A lovely summer afternoon…

Week’s End

Hosted last Saturday, it was a resounding success and Dassa enjoyed it immensely!

Shattered!

Dassa and Pitter have turned this afternoon into "One of those Days…"  Dassa managed to put her little wee hand through the above window, simultaneously raining shards of glass down on the neighbor's little ones.  Miraculously, no one was hurt.

Pitter disappeared for a good fifteen minutes.  Without a trace.  Next time she takes Clover for a walk, I am pretty sure she'll be certain I know first.

My nerves are shot…will I survive long enough to raise these little ones to adulthood?
