School Update Week three is almost in the books and I'm feeling really good about where we're at.  I mentioned in my last post that I need to find something more to entertain Ruby and that's still very true.  This is what happens when I leave her unattended for too long: Thank goodness for washable markers and washable slipcovers. 3. Cricket George went on a walk with David a few nights ago and on the walk he caught a cricket.  He brought it home (as in, into the house) to show it to me and, surprise surprise, it hopped right out of his hands and got loose in the living room.  We've looked for it but haven't found
