July 29th, 2016

Hello everybody! How are things around you? Things around us are pretty calm! By the time you read this, it will be one day before Harry Potter and the Cursed Child comes out and Mom has to work that crazy night! Are any of you big Harry Potter fans? I think they’re all right, but Mom says that she has been Potter-ed out. She has worked at bookstores for a very long time, and there has been lots of Harry Potter craziness!
The past week has been very hot, so much like the week before, we haven’t spent a lot of time outside.
Here is another return to our hug!
tn_2016-07-16 Bunyan (1)
This is Bunyan. He is named after Paul Bunyan. He is a Centennial III Build-a-Bear. When my mom found him, she thought that he could be a logger! My mom’s grandma from her Mom’s side is from Bemidji, Minnesota. They have a huge Paul Bunyan statue there!
Talk to you all later!

Hello everybody! This week has been really hot here in Wisconsin.
Greenville,_WI_(54942)_Forecast_Weather_Underground_-_2016-07-20_20.58.05
What that doesn’t tell is how humid it is! Mom really doesn’t like humid weather. I don’t mind it too much, but I spend most of my day inside the house!
That mostly means that when Mom’s not at work, we spend most of our time inside, much to Oliver’s chagrin!

This is as close to sitting outside as Oliver gets! But through the powers of the internet, Mom has been doing some rescuing. We have increased the size of our hug!
tn_2016-07-16 Buchanan (1)
Here is one of our first rescues! This is Buchanan. He is a Build-a-Bear Border Collie Kennel Pal. He seems to like being back home. He likes making sure everyone is safe and organized! He thinks that we all should stay in the same room, but so does Oliver, so it works all right. He doesn’t like it too much when Mom takes Foster, Milton, Caleb, and I to work, but he says he trusts Mom to take good care of us!
Have any of you found any new friends? I hope you all have a great week!

Hello everyone! How are you all? Things have been pretty quiet around here. We have mostly just been babysitting Graham. He comes over really early in the morning.
2016-07-11 06.10.55
We sit on the ground and he kicks and talks and chews on things. Oliver watches him. Sometimes we watch cartoons on Mom’s ipad. We spend time rocking him too.
We have made one discovery. Mom is very interested in her genealogy. We spend a lot of time adding people to her family tree! We have discovered that we are faintly (very faintly) related to Benjamin Franklin! There are eighteen steps between Mom and him. It’s not straight through—it’s not like he’s a great grandfather or anything like that. But it’s still very interesting!
Mom has been rescuing some of our friends. Some of them she has found locally, but there were a few others she found on ebay. We have introduced Jefferson and Shirley. We’ve also found Gulliver, Stevenson, Oak, and Hilary. Mom needs to take pictures, and we will introduce them!
Talk to you all later!

Mom found a new blogging app for Android. It is called BlogAway. I hope it works all right. Sometimes we just don't have the laptop around! (So it turned out that it worked okay. But Mom is obsessed with proper formatting, so we’re redoing it on the computer. Does anyone have an suggestions for an Android app?)

Mom found one of our friends from before. This is Jefferson, a Clydesdale!  He likes being back with his friends.
2016-07-06 06.44.53
Here is a bonus picture of Graham! He's spending the rest of the week with us. He spends the morning and the afternoon with us and goes home when his dad is on the way to pick up his mom.

Oliver sits with us on the ground. He is very fond of the baby!

Hello, everybody! How are you all? Things here are very quiet! Mom had her vacation last week. We didn't go anywhere until the very end. She took Milton, Caleb, Foster and I to see her sister and Graham!
They mostly just stayed inside, so there isn't any pictures of the town that they live in. We have some pictures to share, but it turns out that the app we have on the iPad doesn't work anymore. We'll add more later!
Mom worked a lot this week, so we're actually writing this on the day that it's going to be posted, rather than a few days in advance. We will write more next week! Mom rescued some of our friends from eBay, so we have some plushies to introduce! Talk to you all later!

This week has been pretty quiet. It has turned out that Mom has had to spend most of the week taking care of Graham, so we haven’t gotten to go anywhere interesting. He doesn’t mind going for car rides, but he really wants to go home after one or two places.
But one of the places Mom, Graham, and Grandma went was to the thrift store. Mom found one of our friends from before! Shirley is back! Hurrah!

My sister, Chloe, and her friends are at my Mom’s sister’s house, but we’re going to get them soon so they can reunite!
I hope Mom and I get to do something this weekend! Talk to you all later!

Good afternoon, everybody! How are you? Things around here have been pretty quiet! Mom has been working a lot this week. It was four days in a row—and that usually doesn’t happen. But now she’s on VACATION! Woot!
2016-06-13 22.49.46
We’ve had a new friend move in. This is Hank. He is an octopus! (Mom says that he’s actually a septopus, because he only has seven arms.) He looks kind of cranky, but he seems to be a nice guy.

Mom and Caleb recently went to this exhibit. It was at the Paine Art Museum. There was a large room with about twenty or thirty prints. They were prints from Audubon’s time. They were very pretty. Mom especially liked the turkey one. Caleb liked the one with the ruby-throated hummingbird. In another room, there was a TV playing a PBS documentary about Audubon and his life. There was some modern reproductions of the prints there, including the pink flamingo. Mom and her friend wandered around the inside of the museum.
They walked around the outside of the garden when they were walking back to the car. The museum has a garden around it. There was a pond. Mom likes ponds because they sometimes hold koi. This one was empty, but it was still very pretty!

There was a hedge nearby that was covered in roses. It was very pink and very pretty.

Since the flowers weren’t for picking, Mom took a picture of one instead!
2016-06-12 15.41.31-2
We’ve also been spending a lot of time with Graham. He likes to lie on the ground and kick and talk. Oliver is very fond of Graham, so we spend a lot of time on the ground with him too!

I hope you all have a great week! Mom and I are going to do some great things! Talk to you later!
