He just realized that the concrete must have never been neutralized because it did not absorb properly and instead left little globs of color here and there. My floor now has polka dots and I am trying very hard not to cry over it.
Not to mention I wrecked my van last week and we were without a second vehicle for several days until we finally broke down and went to get a rental. The insurance only covers part of the rental, so I insisted we wait until we absolutely needed it. Which was Saturday when we had family members needing to be various places around town. (P.S. I know you will wonder. Hope and Ava were with me, plus a baby bunny. Everyone is fine. It was not my fault. The other driver was a 17 year old girl who hasn't yet learned that if someone waves you on to turn left in front of them you still need to gradually ease your way into traffic to make sure someone else isn't coming in the next lane. oooops. Poor girl.)
The goat has found another home. We enjoyed him for two months or so but it did not take me long to realize we are not goat people. He wanted to be following the kids around the yard and up on the porch and occasionally tried to sneak in the house. This was extremely cute but it was a very bad combination having a special needs girl who crawls around and tries to put everything in her mouth. If you catch my drift.
Buddy the Cow brought in $1,000 at the special cattle auction. All proceeds went to Ava's school The Little Lighthouse. Thanks Buddy. You will be missed. We hope he will make someone a nice pet rather than a juicy hamburger or a leather couch.
Speaking of The Little Lighthouse, here are some photos from the Little Lighthouse Garden Party fundraiser. My dear friend Meghan who is an blog-friend-turned-friend-in-real-life, drove up with her daughters for the day and attended the party with us. It really made for a nice highlight to my rather drab week.
These two little girls with Down Syndrome, both adopted from Ukraine, looked super adorable in their fancy dresses. Macey tried to teach Ava that it is not nice to pinch and pull hair. Thank you friends for making my Saturday by being here. :)

I know, the hats are a little goofy but so much fun. How often does a girl have an excuse to dress up and wear a hat???
Normally on Saturdays my two daughters would be dressed in soccer attire. We missed 4 soccer games to be here. I think they all looked super cute. Don't you think?
This is Ava's teacher Miss Brooke.
Is it OK to post Easter and Spring Break pictures in May? Or is that kind of like wearing white shoes after Labor Day?
