Thursday news and notes

Glider - 4 months, 32 pounds

Trouble is: he still wants to be a lap dog and he uses his great leaping/pouncing ability to remind you.

Quiet Fourth: The Fourth of July generally has been a pretty noisy celebration at our house. But this year, my oldest son and his wife are down in Port St. Lucie with the in-laws and Mark, now that he is out of the Army and out of harm's way, doesn't think he has enough "pull" for a party. Probably just as well. We have a new baby next door.

Butterfly garden: One of our coping strategies - things to do to keep our minds off of a deployment - was to plant a butterfly garden. We've been at it for three years now (of course, no more deployments) and it looks like we are going to have our first crop of baby butterflies - Monarchs. See La Florida.
