Month: October 2015

She Is Getting Older. ;(

Lenore is growing up. Next month she turns 11. She is still into dolls, stuffed animals, real animals, getting dirty outside, and MineCraft. But in addition to the little girl things, she likes hoop earrings, red nail polish, and high heels. She tries to get away with all three of the latter any chance she can get.

The guitar skills are growing by the day, and although she is in 5th grade she has tested into 7th Grade Math and Reading/Comp./LA. (Her spelling and handwriting still suck, though.) HA! Next month she joins the advanced swim team with the teenagers. That will be a serious challenge for her, but she wants to do it.

Luckily Lenore is still a little girl in lots of ways though. In addition to the examples I listed above here are a few more: she still sleeps with a stuffed bunny, still likes to color, and still likes bathroom humor and kid jokes.

I took some random shots of our girl yesterday and had some fun. Of course she will only wear black these days, but I got her to ditch the hoop earrings. Oh how we miss her baby days!

We’re Having A Bonding Moment

Hello Friend!
Hello Friend!

So I was in the middle of vacuuming the other rooms and this is what I found. I had to stop and take some shots of the moment. It was over as soon as it started, but it happened.

We love this guy! Wish him luck this weekend as he goes in for the heart-worm shots. They will not let us adopt until his treatment is complete. We love this guy!

Such a good boy.
Such a good boy.

Avenged Sevenfold Solo (Again)

Well…at least she is getting better. But there is still so much work that needs to be done here, and…she’s only 10. If you saw the first video, you will notice she skipped a minor part. So we pulled it and tried again.


Happy Friday!
