2107–week 24

wednesday: first time i’ve ever spotted a deer in our neighborhood!004

thursday: so this happened… after a long wait to finally get the settlement from the insurance (after shane totaled his truck by driving it into a ditch), we found him a vehicle that fit our parameters. AWD, less than 100k, not european, and not fast.007friday: micah has been asking about the wooden trains for awhile now. I had stashed them in the attic a long time ago. so i got them out for him. he happily played with them for a couple of days and then packed them all back up again and i put them back in the attic.2017-11-1424

also saturday: layla came up with this as her overly-ambitious summer reading list. and a vow that she would stay out of the library, since these are all books we own.015

well, apparently this was the busiest week EVER, and i have no less than 4,000 pictures to deal with. i have no idea how all of these will go in the book, but i will deal with that later.

sunday: cross over ceremony for the cub scouts! micah, and the rest of his den, made rank and earned their bear badges. 033034last time as a bear and first time as a webelo. this is tripping me out a little. i swear they were just tigers. how are these kids old enough to be webelos already????
