sorry I've been away so long...

I'll be honest, a large part of the reason I haven't updated, is because I stink at keeping secrets.
But the secret is out now, so I'll go back and update :)

maggot farm

day two hundred and nineteen: it isn't as gross as it sounds
Don't mind that panoramic pictures don't work while children are walking...
but this is a maggot farm
it happens every time we go to my grandparent's house.
here's another angle
and the best part is...
this isn't even like 1/4 of the family.

needless to say, it takes the married in people a while to get used to the close quarters,
that 700 conversations are going on at once, and that

you can't take it with you

day two hundred and eighteen: musicals
As part of the class I took we were able to go see
You Can't Take It With You...
it was interesting,
probably wouldn't have gone if it weren't free...
but the good news was I didn't throw up the whole performance!
Which at this point, is actually impressive.

summer school

day two hundred and seventeen: arts are core
I took a three-day course over the summer to get an elective teacher course credit,
it was called Arts Are Core, and it was actually pretty cool
This was one of the mini projects we did

the battle

day two hundred and eleven: pregnant Shelbie vs Cleo
Ok before I tell you the reason behind this post, 
can I just say, 
isn't this the cutest??
We gave Cleo a stuffed animal to sleep with,
because she literally had to be touching something to fall asleep-
usually Ryan's foot-
and she cuddled with it at night,
but one day I came into the dining room and found her like this,
she had pulled the arms and legs up on her and they were like spooning!
I died...

But... that's the only upside of this post.
It turns out pregnant Shelbie is SUPER sensitive to smells...
and literally every dog smell makes me throw up.
I couldn't feed the puppy,
take the puppy out to the bathroom,
play with the puppy,
or go into the room where we kept puppies food 
(which also happens to be the only way downstairs...)
so... unfortunately we were more of a foster home for cute Cleo.
Another couple in our ward adopted her,
and we were sad to see her go...
but human baby had to win in this case.

day two hundred and nine: surprise!
so we had bought puppy under the impression it was a boy,
we didn't really care so we didn't think to check...
until we to the vet and found out "Leo" was really a "Cleo"
it was awkward haha
