If you love something, set it free

Parker is a free turtle today.

We placed him in a cardboard box for transport to his new home.

He got to ride in the lap of luxury.

We're here! A pond north of our yard full of snails, frogs, ducks...and possibly other turtles.

Scooby checking things out. "The water's great, come on in!"

"Parker! Are you in there Parker?"

He earned it!

Remember back in March when we started this plan? The plan was, Jake wanted a Nintendo DS and had to earn it by getting 300 points on a chart we made. Last night, he earned the last of his points! He was excited to get it and hopefully learned a lesson about working hard for the things you want.

Best Day Ever

The weather was perfect tonight...75ish and no wind. That combination doesn't happen very often. I hooked up the sprinkler and Jake had some fun!

Then we had this idea...

Jake said, "This is the best day ever!" He has lots of best days ever. The last best day ever was Sunday when we lit fireworks.
