I subbed in E's class yesterday and caught him working hard on a poster for Social Studies.

My brother and his family came here this weekend to visit. My niece is a senior in highschool and one of our local schools is in her top 5 list. Fingers crossed that she gets accepted and decides to go to school here. So, here we have S, myself, my niece, my brother, my SIL, my nephew and E (dh took the picture so that's why he's not in it).

This is what I get for doing a job I hate. The boys were in the water, dh was grilling dinner and I was brushing the pool. Guess I leaned a little too far forward and oops...in the pool I went. All the boys thought it was hysterical.
Well, one grown up and two boys of course. The boys were trying to help dh change a bulb in the eaves. The metal casing of the bulb got stuck up there and the glass part of the bulb came out so now we still have to get the metal part out. Does anyone have a 30 ft. ladder we can borrow?
So we're eating dinner around 6pm when the power goes out. We hear sirens so we turn on our scanner to find out that a power box has caught fire. We go out to check it out (along with a bunch of other people we know from the neighborhood) and find that the main box for our section of the neighborhood caught fire. The fire chief (guy in the white t-shirt) lives behind us so he was out there trying to get things moving so that we get our power back (and he can watch the game) and we're told a few hours. Well, some areas got their power back around 9pm, but ours was out until 5am the next morning. Good thing we have a generator and were able to plug our fridge and freezer into that and run it for the night.
