I can’t believe that my little baby is one year old today. In honor of the Rackhams we striped her down and gave her chocolate cake. Man, Ray’s family has some good ideas.


Zach's Prose

| | Comments (4)

Apparently Zach's class has to write a sentence for each spelling word. Some time ago, Zach took it upon himself to fit all the words in as few sentences as possible while making the whole thing make sense. The excersice has yielded some impressive writing. Here is his latest (remember, first grade folks):

A wakeful bat, that hung beneath a tree, swooped down and flew to the ridge of the granary. Then when the bat went back, it swooped at a snake but the snake slithered away. Then the frosty ground glistened in the moonlight.

I have to wonder if "granary" wasn't a list word as well and he just forgot to underline it. I can't imagine he came up with granary all on his own... ) Then again, you never can tell with Zachy.

Stuck in Salina

So we were almost finished with our 60 mile an hour trip across the country and the brakes gave out on our Uhaul. With only three hours to go we are living it up in the motel 8 which we are bound and determined will be compliments of Uhaul. Thanks to the pool, cable, and free internet, it has not been so bad. A local has our truck at his shop as I write and we hope to be back on our way soon. Actually, we just hope to get the truck back. It is a weird feeling to know that your whole life is in a truck and you don't really know where it is.

The fly back was a success! Brad landed the job in Overland Park today and we pick up the rental truck in the morning. We should be pulling in to Matt's house Sunday night. Brad will be driving around in the cool Progressive Car in no time.

What's an aggie?

Although married, we are now both bachelors.
