Washin' the car

Nick decided to wash the cars today and so Moira gave hers a once over as well.

The Champion

Well Suki surprised us all by winning first place at the Bothell Skyhoundz Local Championship. Granted the competitive field was relatively small, only about 10 dogs, but she scored a respectful 20 points with my friend Aaron throwing for her and got 4th place with me throwing for her. All in all it was a great day to get out and enjoy the sun . . . not to mention the fact that it was a few hours with no kids!

Can you guess??


Well things have been pretty mundane around here. Moira has done really well with the whole potty training thing, and rarely has an accident. Kiah has proven to be a very smiley little girl and is quite the comedian of the house. She wakes up very early, 5am most days and lays between Nick and I grunting and carrying on, and as soon as you open your eyes to check on her she flashes you great big smiles. It's hard to be irritated with her when she's just so happy to see you.

Moira has also gotten really into music in the past week. She has a couple of cds and has figured out how to turn on the stereo and switch between the ones she likes on the disc changer. I'm pretty sick of them since even if she's not in the room she goes racing back in each time the cd ends to start it over. I've tried to capture her singing on video, but so far she's been a little camera shy.

Suki will get her chance to shine at the Bothell local disc dog championship on sat. most of the good dogs are out of town so she stands a chance of placing in the top 3. Poor Kess is still pretty bad off and just when she starts to get to feeling a little better she runs around and hurts herself. So it looks like she'll need to be on a leash whenever she's out of the house to prevent these shennanagins.

Hopefully we'll all get out of the house to enjoy the sunshine this weekend.

Potty Training

Well I'm not totally sure what prompted to to start potty training with Moira, but here we are. So far we've had a couple of successes. The big drag is that you run the risk of a big mess if you head out of the house . . . wet clean-up on isle 4. So we're kind of marooned at home. After a day of failures Grandma came over and informed Moira that if she went in the potty she could have a present and shazam 10 minutes later Moira came and asked for her present, and she had indeed used the potty. This feat was preformed again last night so we'll keep our fingers crossed. A quick trip to the dollar store has supplied us with ample presents!

April Showers . . . Bring May flowers

It seems like summer can't get here soon enough, and then before you know it it's gone.
