Thursday Thoughts

So I should have all the time in the world now that the MYP are away for about nine hours.  In all honesty, the day goes very fast.  And I do get a lot accomplished.  The after school is a marathon of practices for piano, football, soccer, and what-not.  

Can you tell that I nearly had to threaten the MYP with their birthright to get the following picture on the first day?  I had suggested that someone had their kids hold up the number of fingers for the class year, but that was met with a collective groan.  So I gritted through my teeth and told them to smile.  It was a one and done picture.  So if you wish it weren't so blurry, well, it's the best I have.  But I am happy to report all three are happy with their schedules, teachers, classes, etc.
This cat is going to be the death of me.  I resolved three months ago that I wasn't going to get emotionally attached to him.  He's just a cat.  He'll be outside most the time.  He's independent.  And if he doesn't make it, he doesn't make it.  All until he purred into my ear.  And crawled on my lap and settled in for a nap.  He meowed a certain way to go outside, to eat, or to get ready to attack something.  Last night when we got home from our study, he took off out of the garage and went missing.  It was time to bring him in so he wasn't supper for the local coyote.  I looked and looked and looked.  The Chairman looked nearly as hard.  To no avail.  It was late.  I was frustrated and worried.  Where is the little puddy?  Finally I got out the LED bike light and got on my bike.  And two doors down there was this gleaming of eyes peering at me.  I got closer.  He crouched.  Then "OH!  It's you!  Where have you been all my life???' and came running out.  He even let me carry him on his first bike ride home.  Stoopid cat.

On Labor Day, we took a couple boats and launched them forth in the deep blue sea of Lake Michigan.  What fun it was!  Especially when the tempest raged upon the angry deep.  It felt a bit more safe in the confines of the river.  But nonetheless, here are a few that joined in the fun!

And finally, this was completely pirated off another site.  Corny jokes.  I don't have any of my own to share, so I'll just let you laugh at someone else's expense.  Or whatever...
