Just a few things

D told me yesterday that 20 linus (minus) 10 = 10. I naturally affirmed this but asked him how he knew. I was curious to hear his answer. What he said made my little teacher/mom heart glow! He said, "Well, I know that 10+10=20 so if I take back one of the 10's then 20 linus 10 = 10." *big satisfied sigh*

We were letting the neighbor's dog out while they were out of town. Today when we went over, there was a Roomba going. The kids were totally freaked out about it. D recovered when he heard it was a robot. But K was just terrified of it. Something about it moving on it's own I guess.

After we let the dog out, I set A on the deck without really thinking about it. The dog is a big yellow lab but she is so gentle and well behaved. Naturally, the dog was curious about A and went to sniff her. A's face was priceless! She was trying to crawl backward and debating if/how hard to cry. The dog turned away quickly and A was fine. I forgot that she has never really met a dog before.

K was eating a pear while we were there. She kept feeding the dog bits of pear. I seriously hope pear is okay for dogs.
We are thinking about doing some concrete curbing between our flower beds and grass. I had someone come give me an estimate today. He seemed to have no idea what I was talking about. Once I got him to understand what I wanted, he seemed to think it was a silly thing to have him come all the way over for an estimate. Then he said it would cost $900. *cough*cough* Then he wanted a decision right then! Uh... don't call us, we'll call you.
In happy news, the county was going to charge us $320 to move a roadsign off our lawn. The bill came back well under half that amount!

Other happy news:

*notice the fence posts and roto-tilled yard (behind the fence posts)*

K wants to be a squirrel when she grows up. I couldn't be more proud.
