We had our friends, Dan and Jane, over today to celebrate the 4th. We did burgers and brats on the grill, my dill potato salad and other goodies, including a chocolate eclair "cake". The chickens got some watermelon that disappeared quickly.
Jon and Dan did some fireworks. Usually we can see big ones from here, but no one seemed to be doing any this year. We hear lots of booming, but none up in the air. Connor did his first sparklers. I was thrilled to find out they don't burn you anymore!
Yes, I know. I haven't updated in a long time. So again, you'll get a bunch of updates at once! Lucky you!
Connor has graduated Pre-Kindergarten!
It was a really cute program. They sang lots of songs. The teachers brought up each student individually and gave them a "quality" and said something about them. Connor's was Curiousity because he kept his teacher on her toes with all of his questions. And... "When Connor grows up, he wants to be a horse trainer." !!!
Connor brought home a new friend on Wednesday. Max is the Pre-K class monkey. He goes back to school tomorrow. Max came with a diary that we had to fill out. We had to take him everywhere with his. He went out to eat, grocery shopping, to soccer practice and outside to play.
