Lydia finally figured out how to ride her big-girl 2-wheeled bike with no training wheels! After trying for weeks with big elephant tears of frustration- she got it! They grow so fast don't they!!
A very trusted tree expert from Valley Tree Service stopped by yesterday to look at possibly cutting down some trees in the back yard, and while he was here, I took the opportunity to ask him his most-valued opinion of the front-yard, whacked-off tree---- his expert opinion is that the tree is dead, but it does make some nice abstract yard art. Not the kind I had in mind! ;)
PS-- the windows are finally all clean-- I just guaranteed that it will absolutely rain today!
