Jeremy, Carter, Luke and the dog went camping this weekend. They joined some of Jeremy's family. Brayden and I stayed home and enjoyed the quiet.
According to Carter and Luke they had fun sleeping in the tent, riding on the boats and playing in the water. And they are ready to do it again.

Luke finished up his 2nd year of preschool. He has one more year before kindergarten (don't ask him about that, it is a sensitive subject...he wants to be in kindergarten and ride the bus).
This school year has really turned him from a toddler to a little boy. He writing skills are great, writing all his letters and he so desparately wants to read so we are trying.
He has always enjoyed preschool.

How is our life with the dog? It depends on who you ask...
The boys are loving her. I love that the boys love her. Gander, the dog, loves Jeremy and seems to listen very well to him. Jeremy has been working on her retrieving skills (I want her to stop retrieving the stuffed animals from the boys' rooms). Gander is learning a lot and her swimming skills have improved.
Luke is definitely the one with the biggest change towards the dog. He has been extremely fearful of dogs because of bad experience a couple of years ago. So when Gander arrived he was very timid towards her. The first couple of weeks Gander was with us, she liked to play with white socks whether they were on some one's foot or not (we have since broken her of this). Luke did not like her biting at his socks so the first thing in the morning he would climb out of bed and put on his rubber boots! He would come downstairs in the morning in his jammies and rubber boots. Now he is all over the dog! He can not get enough of her.
