Saturday night Mr. White was hit by a moose on his way home from work. Yes, you read that right. Just down the road from our house someones bulldog was chasing a calf. It came flying out of the woods and ran right into the side of his truck. He never even saw it coming. It's head hit the lower right corner of the windshield leaving a spider web there. Then the entire body swung around denting down the side and shattering the side window. He said the calf was about half the size of a horse and died instantly. Another man stopped and helped him pull it off the road until the police arrived to put out flares for the charity that was called to salvage the meat. Sing it with me.... "If it weren't for bad luck, I'd have no luck at all". Don't believe me? I won $50 in free gas. I got a $40 parking ticket the same day. How's that for luck.
Then I cut out squares of fabric. Olivia used hundreds of straight pins to cover the whole heart.
We had BBQ chicken sandwiches and coleslaw for game day.
It seems we have a lot going on lately so I don't blog like I did. Or take photos. Nick turned 18 on Monday. Very sad my Little Sunshine has grown up. I'm so glad he's not leaving home, too. Tuesday I spent part of the day going to classes with Elijah. If you haven't gone to high school with your teen you should. You will be surprised. And disappointed. The youth of today is an extremely disrespectful group, but really, me, you, all the parents hold much of the responsibility. We've raised them to be this way. Basketball game Tuesday night. That was Elijah's last one. He will not be finishing the last two weeks of the season. Long story and I'm not going to talk about it, but just know he is fine. Much of my evenings are consumed with Elijah and school work. He always has so much to do and needs a lot of help. He and just put together a pretty good slide show for English. I hope his presentation goes well today. I spent about 8 hours Saturday learning how to take clips from movies and put them into a powerpoint to help him get the bonus points. Good thing I love that kid so much! He's worth every hour. Emily has carpet! Yea! Tonight Homer will put in the trim and then stretch the carpet and she'll be good to go. Then on to the next project! Speaking of projects, I need to get upstairs to paint her door and put the second coat on Nick's shelves. Lots to do!!
