Our family grew by four feet/paws and stuff…

I was totally going to write about something funny that one of the kids did.


And then I forgot what it was I was going to write about.

Because, unlike math, forgetting is something in which I EXCEL.

If there’s one thing I remember… I am AWESOME at forgetting.

Hey, we all have our strengths.

Maybe I was going to write about the time (a few weeks ago) when Lucy found out about the role she landed for a play she tried out for …and she fell on the floor, started pulling at her arm, and yelled, “I’M SO EXCITED I JUST WANT TO PULL MY ARM OFF!”

That was funny.


You know what else is funny?

It’s funny in a more ironic use of the word, funny…

See that little pup moving in on Kevin’s territory?

That’s Angus Kiplain Perry-Ingram.

A.K.A. Gus.

Yep. Our family grew by four feet this last weekend.

Unimpressed Kevin is a bit jealous. But I think in time Kevin will be thankful.

I hope.

Really, the timing couldn’t be much worse, but sometimes… the week after you start homeschooling your youngest daughter, and the day before you leave your family for a week to go be with your mom and dad because your dad just had triple bypass… you need to get a puppy.

I swear we cope in the most non-coping ways.

The family finally agreed upon a name – Gus.

But I really, REALLY wanted to name him Laptop…

Go ahead. Take your last breath.

The cute.

It kills.

Welcome, Gus.

What. On earth. Have we done…

    I’m dying. So cute. If it makes you feel better, we found out we were pregnant and the next weekend got a puppy. So maybe we don’t cope with things like “normal” people either. Ha! You’ll love Gus! Still praying for your dad. xo

    Oh Gus, I love you already!! And Kevin really does look unimpressed. Don’t worry, Kevin, you’ll get used to your little interloper.

  3. You are a crazy-lady, but the best kind of crazy. “Laptop” is so sweet. And, I have to say, I can never get enough of Kevin. He is this big huge love muffin, and I don’t even know him in IRL. He’ll adjust, I can feel it. 🙂

    AAaaawww…Gus is adorbs. *Died 4 times already from the cuteness* Kevin will learn to love him. They’ll be best buds before you know it….

    He is adorbs! And he strangely looks like one my bosses that was named Gus. He was a grumpy but sweet older Greek gentlemen, and squinted his eyes just like your pup is doing in the last picture. Uncanny.
