I was uploading more picture of our trip to the petting zoo, but blogger doesn't want to cooperate. So you only get the one of Emrick and a goat looking at something that must be fairly entertaining.

Here, I would like to say that I struggle with titling my posts. Everything seems so boring but if I add more, then I feel like I'm giving away the story! Now you know why my titles always suck. On to bigger and better topics. I feel like we have been the busiest, craziest people that ever lived. And we haven't even been doing anything. Well, nothing useful. Certainly not cleaning... But we did go to the petting zoo! And today we went to Barnes and Noble to play with trains and then when Burger went to work I took the kids to the pool with some friends. Had fun, wore the kids out. The end. This weekend we are planning on going to the Iowa State Fair! Jacob's teacher is going to call before next Wednesday and set up a meeting to meet him then orientation (just for parents) is on the 25th and he starts with a half day on the 26th. Omigod, omigod, omigod... Too close for comfort. I hope we fall into the new 'school' schedule easily. Somehow, I don't really see that happening. I have been staying up far too late at night and have to drag myself (literally) out of bed at 8:20 to rushrushrush to be to the Y by 9 on the days I work. Which will be drastically cut to Tuesday and Thursdays starting next Tuesday. Anyhow, I have to go wash my dishes immediately or I won't be able to stay awake long enough. And if I don't wash them tonight then I won't be able to make breakfast in the morning. Because breakfast requires dishes. And I have none that are clean. Putting them all on the floor overnight for the dog to lick doesn't actually constitute clean? Then I better get busy!

P.S. Do you love when I write in one big gigantic run-on paragraph? Because I think it adds some flare to my style. And maybe it gives you an idea of what actually goes on in my head... Also, we went to the pool in Waverly then ate at BK where Burger's sister Cheryl works. Hi Cheryl! Thanks for making a dinner that filled our bellies and satisfied our taste buds!
