To the dump.

Good morning, it is Wednesday.

The rain finally did come yesterday. It rained most the night and is raining now. They say it should stop raining today and just be overcast for a few days. The grass and the plants will be happy.

Today I am finally going to the dump after taking the carpet out of our room. Last night I took the second and third row of seats out of the van and loaded it to the gills with garbage. The van is so full of garbage it is amazing. I was able to get rid of about two thirds of the pile of stuff in the garage. The rest of the stuff is stuff that we weeded through when doing the rooms that needs to be taken to a Goodwill drop off site or something. It is possible that in a few days Maren will be able to park her car in the garage once again. Even with all the piles away and stuff it is still a tight squeeze as we have three kids who all have scooters, bicycles, skateboards, and tons of other stuff that fills the side of the garage that I once parked in.

Yesterday Lillie took her first shower. And she enjoyed it! This could make bath time a ton quicker and easier, perfect timing with school just a month away. She was covered in dirt from the island and I was making her take a bath when in her rather abrasive way she demanded to take a shower rather than a bath. I said fine, and in the shower she went. I think she enjoyed the hotel swimming pool shower...who knew!

See you tomorrow.

It's funny to think that there truly is a first time for everything - including taking showers! Do you remember your first actual shower??

Your garage must look like a whole new place!
