The backyard smells like honeysuckle.
All the flowers are blooming (Caleb might be a better gardener when he's absent)

The floors are redone!

It's good to be home!!

Good Morning

The water has been ridiculously calm this week. It almost looks like a lake. I'm guessing this guy is having a good morning. The sun is just coming up and he's got the whole beach to himself. The only person maybe having a better morning is Sasquatch. She still hasn't figured out how to catch birds, but man, she loves to try!

I've Been Hit

We learned pretty quickly the hazards of changing a little boy's diaper. I don't remember having any accidents since the first month. Until today that is. He just got me... good.
I would be more mad if he hadn't let out a fantastic giggle/shriek of delight at the moment of impact. If I didn't know better I would think he had planned it.

Shark Attack

I love the beach. However, I'm terrified of the ocean. I don't get in past my knees if I can help it. Caleb thinks my fear of things that can eat me is ridiculous. Yesterday he dared me to find a shark attack in Galveston that they didn't happen. Not only did I find multiple shark attacks in Galveston, but there has actually been 2 fatal attacks! The most recent death was in the 1930's, but he did not specify how recent it had to be. He still tried to tell me how rare they were and yada yada yada, but they happen and he can't say they don't.

This morning Caleb went for a run with Sasquatch. When he got back he walked up to me with this weird smile on his face and said, "There's about a 4 foot shark washed up on the beach maybe a half mile down from the house." Um, yeah.... not going in the water.

Oddly, I immediately wanted to go see it. In much the same way that I love to watch Shark Week on the Discovery Channel!!

That's my dad's foot for a little scale. His tail was buried so there's a little bit more you can't see too.
What's the point of this story? It is proof that Caleb doesn't know. All those times he says things with such authority that people just believe him... HE DOESN'T KNOW. He's lucky this shark didn't eat him.

Even as I write this Caleb is still trying to tell me he's right. That this shark didn't attack anyone and was probably killed way out at sea, but that is not what he said. He said there were no sharks in Galveston. WRONG.

And here's a picture of my blue eyed babies. If nothing else they have the same eyes. I don't know why, but Blythe doesn't like to smile in pictures. She prefers a version of Blue Steel.
