It has been way too long since our last update, but today is the day!!!!
First of all, let me tell you about weather here in good old Flagstaff, Arizona. . . it is SOGGY! Rain is not unusual here, and a lot of people I've recently met actually hate it! I don't think that I could ever hate rain, but the rain has only been super cold so far. I don't know if I'm really looking forward to the frozen rain! Either way, now I also know what people mean when they say "Fall is in the air!" They mean, "It's getting cold, so stop wearing flip flops and shorts and don't forget 5 pairs of socks on each foot!" It's such a fun transition, but holy cow. . . it is sooo different from Mesa.
School has started back us for Jack and myself. We knew this would be a tough semester, but I don't think I fully comprehended it. I thought it was bad last semester, only seeing him a few hours a day per week, but this is worse. . .we'll be home at the same time, but we can't spare time to talk or grades will suffer. It makes Saturdays and Sundays really nice though!
Lastly, our children need an update. I have been trying to train Earth, Wind and Fire and today special little Wind reciprocated some wisdom! I've been doing a clicking noise with my mouth and that means to stand up on their mini-hind legs. Earth has better things to do, and Fire has her own dumb trick that involves unlatching the water bottle, but little special-needs Windy did it!!!!! I've conditioned them (thankyoupsychologyterms!) by clicking then holding food above them! Those little fatties see food and jump through hoops. Anyhoo, today I clicked with no food and Wind stood up! I'm so proud of her little cowlicked self! I don't think she realized she did it, but that's probably due to her lack of brain power and self control. . . I don't care though! I've trained a guinea pig!
PS. I tried Bountiful Baskets for the first time last week, and have decided that the bread they have is the best. thing. ever. Don't believe it? You're dumb anyway!
