Ugh, it's been more than a month since I last posted...sorry about that. Let's play catch-up. Since then, we've had some milestones and good times.
Ben started kindergarten. It's a new routine with new kids and new teachers. Everybody seems great, though.
We went out to the salt flats during speed week and saw some really fast cars.
Ben wore a tie for the first time. We drove to a family wedding in Montana. We dealt with all the issues - long times in the car, sleeping in a strange place, being in crowds, sitting down to nice dinners, and staying quiet during a ceremony. I won't bore you with details.
We got a cat. Bubba was really wanting a pet that would be in the house all the time, and I vetoed some of the other options (rat, hedgehog, guinea pig). I'm kind of firmly anti-rodent. Her name is Emma, and she killed her first mouse today. The little devil had chewed through her food bag, so I guess he stepped over the line.
Ben's talking more, and using more complicated sentences. I'm sure part
of that is just normal development, but we also have a really awesome
speech therapist (L) who he sees once a week. It's a big part of the
week that he looks forward to - she's really fun.
Have a nice day!
