Where to beginnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn....

Okay, first off, Kaitlyn had her Christening. All went well, beyond some "church giggle" type incidents during mass. It's not my fault the priest told a funny story! And Kaitlyn got hungry in the quietest part of the service, so that was unexpected. Greatgrandma Langley, Grandma and Grandpa, Grandma Connie and Grandpa Ken, Chris and Terri attended the service. We were the only ones dressed up, the rest of the congregation was dressed down. It was hot as BLAZES too! Either way, another notch in the belt of childhood for Kaitlyn.

The next day, we saw her boyfriend Grant at his parents' house. Parties are always fun Chez Harris. We were going to try to take Kaitlyn into the pool, but the temp was 55 degrees. No thanks!

In the household, the animal to human ratio continues to fluctuate. Chocolate and two of her kittens were adopted out. We had one kitten left and she was lonely so we added Zula. Zula and Caramel are still trying to figure out if they like each other, but they are doing very well with the dogs. The beagle boys and I are going to the adoption day this weekend. It would be cool if they got some interest.

Some interesting storms in the area. We lost half of a 12 year old Maple tree in our backyard, along with some siding. This happened on the day of the second HART yard sale, so Brent, Meg Hart and I were frantically trying to get the yard sale stuff back in the garage in tornado like weather. It was awesome....awesomely bad. Meg and I went to the adoption day, soaked to the bone. I told Charlene that if she ever needed proof of my dedication to HART, she need only remember me sopping wet.

All in all, the two yard sales combined raised about $1800+ for HART. Not bad. I'll definitely think long and hard about doing another one. This one drained me. So...much...stuff.

I had an autocross June 1. I didn't do so hot. 5th out of 8. I was pretty distracted the whole day since that was the first time Brent and Kaitlyn came out. Not sure if that had anything to do with it, but I was definitely outdriven that day. Gotta work on not getting skunked again.

Kaitlyn's rolling now. She rolls all over the room, giving her parents and the dogs fits! The dogs are never sure which way she's going to go and her parents are constantly wondering how she wound up where she is in the short amount of time she was on the floor. She's starting to dig the exersaucer more and more, even spinnning herself around ever so slightly to get to her toys. Babies are so much fun!

That's all the news that's fit to print. Until next time.......
