I'm already falling down on my job of posting!! It's been two days! Not an exciting two days, but two days none-the-less. On Sunday Dawson got home from, yet another, Boy Scout camping trip. This time they went caving. He had a really good time! Then at about 4:00 p.m. he received his new baby ... Bandit. He is a 4-year old Bearded Dragon. I need to take a picture of him so you can see him. He's not quite as cute as little Camo the green anole gecko. I don't think I'll be touching him anytime soon. He is pretty big, about 10 inches, so he's in a 50 gallon fish tank. It was SO much bigger than I thought it would be, so it's sitting in our upstairs t.v. room on the floor. Clifford, our cat, just sits and stares at him. The TOTALLY disgusting part, was that the owners that gave him to us also brought him a little "farewell" treat ... a newborn baby mouse to eat. Thank God I was downstairs. But Dawson was traumitized. He said it squeked when he ate it. There will be no such treats for Bandit now that we are owners! We will put a hot dog at the end of a chopstick and wiggle it at him for a treat. It makes my stomach turn just thinking about it. I took good care of little Camo this weekend, but could not get him to turn green ... his "happy" color. Seriously, once Dawson got home and picked him up he turned neon green. I guess he just missed his daddy!
Yesterday we made our weekly trip to Big Splash. We didn't get to go last week because of the rain. But we had a great time yesterday! The temperature was perfect and there was hardly anybody there! Brynne and Eli played so good together that I really just got to sit on the lounge chair and talk with my friends. It was really nice. Then we were off to Boy Scouts where Dawson passed both his Scout Master Conference and Board of Review which completed his first ranking of Tenderfoot. I was told that was pretty good considering he just started.
I haven't said much about Kyndal lately because she's still in Missouri. I think Grandma is having a difficult time with her "teen" stuff. Better get used to it, though ... she has another budding teen to raise herself! I will be glad when Kyndal gets home, though. I've actually had to pay a babysitter 4 times while she has been gone. That't not the only reason I've missed her though ... seriously!!
Today is Walmart grocery shopping day. Oh joy! Gotta take the good with the bad, I guess!
