We took the boys to the iron mine rear my parents house this week. This was a fun afternoon adventure! We learned about mining and took a train about 1/2 mile underground. The whole tour lasted about an hour and it was a nice way to cool off. Inside the mine it was only 38 degrees!
On our drive to school today: Nathan: can we get a dog? Me: no Nathan: when I grow up and have my own house and my own kids in going to wait until everyone is asleep and get them a puppy and a kitty. And put them in a box under the Christmas tree. Me: that sounds like a great plan Elijah: *bursts into tears* I JUST REALLY WANT A PUPPY!
