The Lambs

This is Stitches. Robby is inspecting the stitches he has on the side of his mouth.

This is Nugget--his full name is Golden Nugget.

Sadie is rubbing on Stitches. You have to tie them up and rub them down a lot; this gets them trained to stand still when the judge comes around (we hope).

Memorial Day weekend, Sadie and Robby went to Uncle Craig's to get the lambs. It has taken me this long to get my act together and properly photograph them.

Last night, Robby removed the rest of Stitches's stitches. Sadie also began training them to walk with the halter. It was an interesting time, but both lambs were doing pretty well when she finished.

Kindergarten Graduation

T.S. graduated from Kindergarten Friday. The theme was "Top Hats and Tiaras." The girls sang "Diamonds are a Girls' Best Friend" and wore gloves, boas, tiaras and large "diamond" rings. The boys sang "Top Hat" and wore top hats, bow ties and had a dancing cane. It was a neat number. T.S. received the Milky Way award for science and all of his question asking.

He had a great year with Mrs. Osmanski and Mrs. Cox.

The cane turned into a paintball gun as soon as graduation was over--I had to ask him to quit shooting it during the rest of the elementary awards.
