Still no vacuum. Niko had speech therapy this morning and the carpet was still messy so Jay played the human vacuum. He went around with a little cup picking up all the little pieces of fuzz and stuff all over the carpet. He did a great job. Thanks Jay!
Yesterday as I was taking Kim to work I noticed there were quite a few bees flying around at the end of our road. As I was driving back home with the windows down I felt something hit my throat and fall into my shirt. I was so sure it was a bee. I reached into my shirt and flipped it out onto my leg (glad that I wasn't on a busy road). I stopped in the middle of the road to throw it out the window before I got stung. Well, it wasn't a bee. I don't even know what kind of bug it was. It was bigger than a bee and it was black and red. Ewwww!
Justin's Cub Scout group went fishing yesterday. They had practiced casting a week ago and Justin could hardly wait to go fishing. Scouts was at 4:30 in the afternoon and he must have asked me ten times during the day if it was time to go or how long until it was time to go. About 4:00 he starting telling me how he was so excited to have a fish to play with and feed and take care of. Oh . . no . . .
Somehow we had failed to explain the concept of what fishing was about to Justin. So as carefully as possible I told him about the hook, catching the fish, the fish dieing from being out of the water, and the reason we go fishing: to eat.
You should have seen the sad look on his face. He couldn't believe it. For a few moments he looked as if he never would want to go fishing. Then the thought of holding the fishing rod, casting it into the water, and trying to catch a fish on the end was enough to regain his excitement. He was ready to go.
