I forgot to mention something neat that happened last night. After Vinny's failure and dinner, we went to pick up Sophia at Bob's parents. We visited for a bit and Sophia went into the kitchen to finish a snack that she had started earlier. Bob went in to see what she was up to and she was happily saying, "Hi squirrel." Bob thought nothing of this since we call Bob's parent's one cat, Clementine, Squirrel (she has a really fluffy tail). But upon looking at what Sophia was seeing, he looked out the window and there sat a raccoon looking right back at them. The raccoon and Sophia were having a conversation. He would leave and then come back to the window so that we all could get a look. He was really cool creature to see.

In all of the years of going to Bob's parent's house (over 16 years now), I have never seen a raccoon there. Sophia loved it and when we got home, I got on the internet and showed her some other pictures of raccoons and also let her hear the sounds they make. What an awesome little nature lesson.

By the way, just in case you have not noticed, I am in the process of updating this page. I need some help getting my links back, so be patient.

By the way, if you like to cook check out Culinary in the Desert. I will link there once I get things sorted out.

Have a wonderful day.

Racoons... That there is trouble... I think it wanted to eat your daughter. Best to teach her to defend herself from nature... Shaolin Monk Style!

You are probably right. They are definitely trouble, even if they are neat to look at. We did give her the whole "it's a wild animal" speach and told her that if she seems him again that she has to let an adult know. Hopefully, that will help.

As far as defending herself Shaolin Monk Style, that is definitely something that we are going to look into. We want to put her into karate as soon as week can (I think they can go as early as four). You never know when you are going to have to kick someone or somethings ass!!

Hot new look. Very elegant!

When I used to live in Vermont, I saw raccoons, and a bear, and even a moose or two - all in the front yard. Sophia would like! :p
