Science Day 2012

Me with Sheldon

I should have known something was up when Sheldon came over to our house early one morning. Firstly, it was a very cold morning, frost on the cars! Sheldon does not like cold weather (and neither do I). Secondly, Sheldon came over at all. You’ve probably noticed if you’ve been reading this blog for a long time, that Sheldon is no longer a big part of it. Turns out he was really Caplin Rous’ friend and not mine. I think he gets sad when he sees me. Or maybe I am just not his type.

Special Needs Capybara

 

In the car with my Rick

If you’ve been following this blog for very long, you know I am not the world’s bravest capybara. That was Caplin Rous. He could go anywhere and do anything and never have a moment of fear or doubt.

School Visit: Cedar Creek Elementary

It looks like rain, let's stay home.

I know I am a Capybara Ambassador (Capybassador)(in training) but I don’t know why that means I have to leave the comfort of my own home. Can’t I do everything through social media and TV? (More on that in my next blog post!) But no, Melly is all, “Sure, Gari would love to come visit your school!” I’m not saying I don’t want to visit, just that I’m scared.

Redecorating

Clean is for losers

I have had a very exciting weekend! Parts have been really fun and parts have been very stressful. There is just too much to cover in one blog post. Or two. Hopefully I can fit it all in three but it may stretch out to four. We’ll see. This is the first installment and it is all about mud.
