First day of school Posted by Picasa

First day of school

Ben had his first day of school this Monday. Seriously... SCHOOL. It was only moments ago that his only words were "bucca bucca bucca". The next thing that will happen is that the boy's going to ask me for the car keys to go on a date. Ben's super cool. I typically read a few books and negotiate fewer while he negotiates more books. Tonight I read a few more just because I like hanging out with him.

The eggs are back...both the blues and browns.

The EuroVan is really fast *and* has some serious performance handling features like anti-slip (during acceleration) and course correction when the steering wheel position doesn't match what the van is actually doing. Fancy stuff typically found on high zoot sedans. Haven't tried either of these but nice to know that they're there. Oh, and the thing is HUGE. It transported a bale of hay today.

The boys are getting bigger and more interesting. Benjamin's inventing new words. His latest thing that he repeated *all* *day* is "Fire Tu F-oh-ka" ... The best part is that he asks US what it means. "No idea Ben, you invented it."

Forlorn hens

Hen's are on strike. The duck isn't talking either. We're all getting a little nervous around here. It has been 7 days since we've had eggs. Would somebody tell us what's going on?
