We had such a great day. Taylor had a game at 9:00 and of course he had an early game on picture day so we had to be there at 8. And it was coooold. And windy. I love watching him play but he has had a hard time this year. He is so sensitive and if the coach yells at him at all he takes it personally and loses it. The poor kid was crying on the sidelines because the coach yelled at him to get the ball down the field. We are trying to get it through his head that if he's going to play sports he's going to get yelled at but it's not working yet. It was just the three of us so we took him to Krisy Kreme afterwards to cheer him up. It worked. We were there for almost an hour eating, drinking coffee, talking and watching them make doughnuts. I don't know why it's so fascinating. Afterward we went home and it was finally warming up enough to get out in the yard. When we pulled up our neighbor had rented a thatcher so Rob took it for a spin in the front yard. Next Rob put in an electric fence for the dogs so they stay on the side of the house and maybe we can have out yard back. I assisted with that project and did a few other piddly things like pull weeds. It wasn't a whole lot of stuff but I could sure tell a difference when we were done. Our next project is the garden. I am so excited to get going on it. After we were done in the yard we headed to church, came home to watch Mr Bond and then were off to dreamland. It was a good day.
