The hardest part of writing this post is simply that I waited too long. There is so much going on, I just don’t know where to start.  I mean, do I lead with the puppy developments, or the 16 year old’s acceptance into a boarding school all the way across the country.

I mean I’m pretty excited that little Miss Brigid is learning so well, and she and Trinity passed Puppy 1 class with flying colors. My youngest is doing a great job with Trinity, and I am so proud of her. Puppy two class doesn’t start until after the camping trip the end of this month, but she’s been having fun with her puppy socialization sessions in the meantime. She’s up well past 30lbs now, and she still wants me to lift her out of the car.

It can’t exactly compare to my eldest getting into the boarding school she really wanted to. A school where both her hockey and her engineering can be pursued as fast as she can keep up. A school that’s SO FAR AWAY! Somewhere between 2,600 and 2,700 miles away, depending on how you get there. She’s been that far away before, but never for anything like nine months. She will be gone for as long as I carried her in my belly. I guess this is good practice for college, at least I know she’ll be coming home each summer until she’s done. It does give me the opportunity to see an area of the country I have never been to, that is very close actually, to where my Grandmother grew up.

The garden fence is up, now we just have to get the organic cloth down, and plant the seedlings that are outgrowing their spot in the garage, and we’ll have some lovely vegetables soon, and the porch railing should be up soon.

Speaking of up, here comes the sun. Work is over, now it’s time to relax at home. And when I say relay at home I mean something like this: Feed the dogs, and walk the dogs. Then my youngest and I have bowling to catch up on, and then we’re bowling just for fun with my eldest and my mother. After that, I sleep, for a little while anyways.
