Big News in Quinnland (And a Couple of Other Things)

Quinn read his very first book today.

There was a book in his school folder in his backpack tonight, so we pulled it out and told him it was his homework to read it. And he did. I almost passed out right there. Then I ran to get my camera to document the momentous occasion. He was so cute reading it out loud. Although it’s possible that there was more memorization than actual reading.

 The book was all about parents. This mom is a police officer.

And dad is a vet.

But wait! THIS dad is a farmer. Talk about a page turner. I was on the edge of my seat.

Spoiler alert: Now, I don’t want to ruin it for anyone who hasn’t read it yet, but there was quite a plot twist at the end. Mom is a farmer TOO?!

I love me a good book.

But mostly I love me a kid who is excited about learning something new. Good job, Quinn!


I fear I’ve confused you even more about my commenting system. Here is a poll to help you help me. Chances are good that I will ignore the results if they confuse me. Chances are good that the results will confuse me.

The poll is called: What Annoys You Most? (And the weird spacing after this poll doesn’t count as one of the choices.)


And because you like my mice, or at least a couple of vocal commenters like my mice, I present to you this very cute photo taken of two of them just prior to the epic fight that resulted in the toppling of their brand new tiki hut.

Don’t worry. They are fine and seem to be happy with each other again. I am close to renaming them Stimey and Alex.
