Wow. It's been a crazy summer so far. I have tons and lots and gobs of pictures and stories I could share to catch up, but I'm just checking in really quick right now. Maybe I can actually get something more productive than a load of laundry done before the rest of the house wakes up.
All but 3 of the 9 puppies are spoken for. It' s been a crazy couple of days around here with puppy sales and visits. But really fun. I'm watching one play in the early morning light of the kitchen right now (the one I got up with at 6:30 this morning becuase she was weeping and wailing). She's playing a tugging game, playing with a birthday baloon, her tail, chewing Kayla's flip flop- too cute. No idea why she won't sleep. Now she's biting my toes.
Another confirmation email just came in for a puppy that needs shipped (by air) to Pennsylvania. If this one and the one being shipped to California both go through, we've only one puppy to go. But the shipped puppies will hang around here for 2 more weeks because they aren't allowed to fly until they're 8 weeks old. That will help the kids with the transition of seeing so many puppies walk out that door within just a few days.
Corin is due in two weeks. We're anxious and excited, but strangely okay with the fact that he hasn't come yet. It's working out well that the puppy rush came before the baby rush. We're supposed to meet a Michigan buyer north of Chicago to deliver a puppy on Tuesday. Maybe the travel of the day (which happens to be my original due date) will get this show on the road. Well...hopefully not LITERALLY on the road!
In other news: Karissa turned 5 yesterday. We've had 4 out of 6 of our summer birthdays. We're a summer-born family, for sure - see?
May: Caiden (3yrs)
June: Kayla (7yrs)
July: David (30) Karissa (5yrs) & Corin (0 yrs)
August: Sarah (32)
We plan summer babies because of David's school schedule and my teaching schedule. And ever since we've been having babies, David's been in school.....hmmm. Maybe I'll leave that one alone without comment this morning.
I had a very short night, so I'm in severe danger of some serious rambling here. I'd better sign off before my fingers get going faster than my brain.
Just wanted to say hello to the great black hole of bloggerdom.
