Teeth, Naked Hopscotch, and Rogue....

As you can see, Sam's teeth are finally repaired. She was a lot of fun after her dental work. Versed is a great drug, and she has no memory of the couple hours she spent grasping at the "white stuff" that was apparently floating a few feet in front of her.

Tile floors and recent potty training combine to create magical adventures.

Sam completed kindergarten. She got to play the drums during her class's rendition of "Blood in the Rio Grande," a Navajo death chant they learned for Culture Week.

And I have something to confess. I don't believe the plants I was trying give away were zucchinni. I'm 93% certain they were..... pumpkin. It makes sense, seeing as I dumped the guts of the one big pumpkin we produced last year into the compost. Unfortunately, I gave away about 6-8 plants to an interested coworker. I suppose I'll have to tell her. I am shamed.

Nitrous oxide, Commencement, and Rogue Zucchinni

And life progresses steadily onward for the Tolman clan. Samantha has had 2 of 7 cavities addressed. The first was filled, the second more rotten hole resulted in a quick extraction. That laughing gas is good stuff.

Lucy "graduated" from her first year of preschool. She was voted by her class as cutest and the most likely to be photographed in a cocaine-fueled rage.

This was her a couple days later.

Nora has gone pee in the potty for two days in a row. I believe our current box of diapers is the last we will have ever purchased. Can you feel it? Can you feel that fresh summer breeze? It's a beautiful day.

A red strawberry. This was eaten a couple hours later by one of the aviary creatures with whom we share our land.

Seriously people. Don't you want to be loving parents to one of these orphaned zucchinni plants? Our onions and broccoli insist they need more room. As much as I hate to play favorites... something's got to go. So sad.
