Ooops!! I guess you have to add the picture before you hit "publish post".

I'm still learning. Here's Wesley.

Also, here we are planting a fruit tree in our backyard.

Another Day, Another Dollar...$$$

Well, our washer died. We can't really complain. We got the washer/dryer together for $75 shortly after moving in. It's served us well. I mean, we do at least 2 loads of laundry a day. Thankfully, we were home at its parting. We were getting ready to take the kids out to the bus stop when we saw the "lake" making a "river" towards our front entry-way. What if it had been one of those days where I put a load of wash in and then head out to do errands. Eeeeeks. We would have had a flooded house.

Anyway, long story short, we got ourselves one of those cool, front-loading machines that supposedly save all sorts of energy. It seems nice. But what a price tag!!! Then, of course, right as we're getting it installed, Tim goes outside to get something out of the garage. He pushes the garage door opener, and the entire garage door almost cracks off the ceiling of the garage. Cute!! Thus, the title: "Another day, another dollar..."

I'm not quite sure how to title pictures yet, so I'll just describe the above picture here. Wesley is at that wonderful stage when he doesn't let anyone feed him. He's got to feed himself, making for horrific messes and ensuing clean-ups. Here he is after "eating" yogurt this morning.

I'm off.

Love to all,

Our First Attempt

First Day of School

Well, Leslie convinced us that this would be an easy way to keep in touch, so we're going for it. I guess we can change it as we go along. Let's just do a quick up-date and put on a picture from the first day of school. It's all pretty low-key and unprofessional, but I figure something is better than nothing.

We've basically been running a hospital around here for a week now. Thank goodness for Tim. He's been holding the fort up. I've been sick for an entire week. I guess it's been off and on, but it sure has been a long week. I'm thinking we're all on the mend, so maybe we can get around to doing the little things that went undone for a week. You know, homework, piano practicing, cleaning, making real meals...eeeks. Moms aren't supposed to get sick.

Well, this will be short today, because I'm curious about how all this really works.

Signing off for now.
