I don't like it when kids are home from school.

Today everyone is home. Josh, Kim, and Emma are off track for two more weeks (they went on Monday, have just over two weeks off, and go back on a Wednesday-what's up with that?) and Ben called me to come get him. He feels sick. I think it is more a matter of being afraid of the science class than it is being sick. I think the unwillingness to attend class has actually made him physically ill. I guess I've been in that situation too.

All is well with the rest of us. Mike and Dan (my cousin, Taren's husband) have been working hard the last few days to get our sprinkling system in. It has been cold (it is snowing here as I type - May 1, 11:55am) and rainy/yucky for a few days, but they are almost finished, I think. All the pipe has been laid in the trenches except for the drip line in the garden area and along the tree line. They have hooked all the pipe together and now just need to hook up the sprinkler heads, and attach it to the control box. There is probably more to do but, as I understand it, this is basically it. It will be nice to have it done. Thanks for the help, Dan!

On a different note, the bow made from ric-rak on the baby announcement is meant to be un-tied. There is info under the picture. And, whoever I asked to bring cookies to the get-together on Sunday, May 11- please bring a salad instead. Mike was touring the Lofthouse Cookie plant yesterday with a client and they gave him a case of cookies (over 300), so we don't need anyone to bring dessert. Leave me a comment and let me know who I asked to bring the cookies. I think it was Kati.

Have a great day!

I just got Andrew's announcement today- it is so cute! I wish you had asked me to bring cookies because I wish we could come!

Well...I think I am crazy, because I really like it when my kids are home for the summer. But, I would probably feel like you if we were on year round schedule.
Andrew's announcement was so darling. You did such a great job with them!
I can bring what ever you need. I didn't realize until today that it was on Mother's Day. I need to find someone to teach my class....I better get on that.
