Going All Out!

Last night after watering the grass with Henry and during a walk with him I spoke with my 3 1/2 year old nephew, Evan. He told me, 'We're going all out tonight and having french toast with syrup for dipping!' (One has to paraphrase him when recording his speach as it is tough to remember the exact phrasing he uses.) I wonder how soon we'll notice Henry using our favorite phrases. He definitely got the phrase "going all out" from either my sister or brother-in-law. Maybe it was even said sarcasticly and he didn't realize it. I heard all about his time at the inflatable party zone, too; he got a bloody nose just like his uncle would have. I had Henry in the bjorn. It was a nice change. Meg finished making cookies for those who have helped us out lately. She did a really nice job especially with the hand stamped gift bags.

I finished my pennies from the day before. 7,500 of them yielded thirty-seven Wheats, sixty-eight Canadians, and one Bahamas 1¢. One of the Wheats was the 1909 V.D.B. That's only the second of those relatively rare ones I've found. This one is a good upgrade to the one in my album as well. The Wheats were:

1909 V.D.B., 1919, 1940, 1941(3), 1942, 1944(5), 1945(3), 1946(7), 1948, 1949, 1952, 1952D, 1953(2), 1953D, 1955, 1956, 1956D(3), 1957(2), 1957D

Found: 19 pennies (all at the car wash, most in one pile)
