Weekly Wrap-Up

Happy Friday, y’all! How has your week been? Between baby bunnies and cute little visitors, we’ve been busy.

Yes, baby bunnies. Josh has been wanting a bunny, so last Friday we went to pick one out from a breeder about an hour away. Brian was off, so it was a fun family road trip (minus Brianna since she was working).

There were two that he was torn between so, in typical Bales family fashion, we got both of them. One is 12 weeks old and the other is 8. Both are male. Hopefully, being raised together, they won’t fight but we shall see.

This is Toby:

And, this is Stitch (though his name has already been changed twice, so we’ll see what sticks):

You can’t tell in the picture, but Stitch has beautiful blue eyes.

Both Toby and Stitch are already really tame and love to cuddle. Josh is working on litter training them. Hopefully, that will go well so that we can give them a bit more freedom, though we may always have to keep them away from Belle, who thinks everything is a toy.

I was worried about the cats, but so far Megan’s cat is afraid of them. Luna, the only other cat who is in the house all the time, couldn’t care less about the bunnies as long as they leave her alone.

My 3-year-old niece has started staying with us a couple of afternoons a week. I pick her up from preschool and she hangs out here for awhile.

I have restocked things that have been absent from my house for awhile, like Play-doh and coloring pages. (Okay, I do have my own coloring book but it’s not for sharing. Yeah, really.)

B loves the bunnies. Aunt Kris’s house is pretty cool, what with the small zoo we seem to be running here.

School wise, everything is going well. There just isn’t much to talk about since Josh and Megan are working independently now. Josh has become very self-motivated this year. It’s really exciting to see him taking ownership of and responsibility for his school work.

Just the other day, he emailed me a paper he wrote with absolutely no prompting. I was a bit shocked and pleasantly surprised. He wrote about how to build a computer – something he is passionate about.

There may or may not still be some degree of nagging involved where Megan is concerned. {ahem}

Now it’s off to enjoy a nice, quiet weekend at home before some busy ones coming up in the next couple of weeks.

  1. The bunnies are the cutest little things, and caused lots of high pitched squealing from my girls when they saw the photos.

    B looks so much like Megan when she was young!

  2. BUNNIES!!! I don’t think that would go well with a greyhound in the house but I’ve kinda always wanted a bunny! You’re establishing quite a little zoo. 🙂

    1. Yeah, I’m kind of wondering how it’s going to go with Belle in the house. She is very curious about them. They are so cute!!
