She is sort of getting use to it. What she really likes to do is grab the hose and bend it all around. I also was so lucky to have a friend help me out with watching Rylie while I did all the running to get things done. I had to teach class in the middle of all this. Thank you Robin, thank you.
Wacky thing #2. We have a cat faced spider living on our front railing. The thing is HUGE! I'm not kidding. It's about the size of a quarter. During the day it hides out under the railing and at night it comes out and catches moths that fly through because of the porch light. It's hard to get a picture of it, but here's my best efforts...
Pretty freaky, but also pretty cool and very large, trust me. We have one living at the back our house too, just outside Garth and I's bedroom window. All I can say is, if you come to visit, don't put your hand on the railing - not that it's very stable anyway. :)
Wacky thing #3. Poor Rylie shut her fingers in her bedroom door. It was pretty bad.
She was shutting doors so Camryn couldn't go in and make messes, and got her fingers caught. Garth ran them under water for a good 3 minutes. Then we gave her some Tylenol, put Hello Kitty band-aids on (she broke skin on two of her fingers) and I slept with her until she fell asleep. It was pretty sad, her poor little fingers were throbbing and she would gasp with pain every once in a while. But thankfully it didn't take long for her to fall asleep. Lately she has been wanting to shut the van door, and that scares me because I'm afraid she'll shut her fingers in the door. Can you just see that, that huge metal door slamming on her little fingers? Well I can. I remember when I shut my fingers in Aunt Shanna's blue 4-runner door and I couldn't get the door back open. Not a pleasant feeling. Anyway, I guess it just goes to show that anything can happen.
Not so wacky thing #4. I went to parent teacher conference with Taylor, and much to my not surprise, she is doing VERY well in school. Her teacher had nothing but great things to say about Taylor. (pround, beaming mom) She said she really enjoys having Taylor in her class and is very impressed with her, even wishes she had more students like Taylor. She also gave her a Panther Paw, very big deal at Pinnacle. Anyway, I was very proud of her, so we went out to dinner last night. I let Taylor pick the place and she chose the Cowboy Kitchen. Not the most family friendly restaurant, but the best place to get a GOOD stake. It was very yummy!
So there you go, wacky stuff going on the the Frandsen home. I know you're all jealous, but some people just have all the luck - right? :)
