I’ve been taking the last month to play, plan, and basically figure out the next steps…
Curious flyers dive after a sandwich.
A giant swimmer rams into the boat.
A pet dinosaur is not like your average dog. When your dog needs some exercise, then you can just take him out on a walk. But what do you do when your pet is a giant, sharp-toothed meat-eater three times the size of the biggest tiger at the zoo?
I’ve had a month to figure out what worked last year, what was messy, and what doesn’t quite fit. Right out the gate and looking back at what I did, I must say I’m rather surprised and pleased with how much I finished. Through most of the year I didn’t think I was accomplishing very much, and when I set out to evaluate the past year I thought I would be in for a rather dissapointing reality check.
Small wins quickly add up! And this time you have the option of either reading this post, or listening in on the recorded version. 😀 I thought it would be fun to have a little chat with my kids about this post.

I say “just about” anybody, because there was that one time some kids wanted her to be their fortress in a water balloon battle. That was a bit too much for Steggy. But that class of preschoolers who came to visit were adorable. Steggy just sat there and let them climb all over her (Pete stuck a few tennis balls on her spikes, so they wouldn’t be so sharp). The kids had a great time painting stars and hearts on her big plates.Continue reading
