Last night when I got home Henry was helping Meg weed in the front lawn. We then worked on the backyard together while he picked flowers and walked about. It's very nice to be able to do just a tiny bit of yard work with him outside. For many months we couldn't do anything with him outside with us.

On Sunday he hit another milestone ... he took his shirt off for the first time. I found him shirtless in the living room after I washed a few dishes. It was cute. I'm sure that before long he'll be trying to take his clothes off all the time and it won't be as cute.

I searched a lot of quarters last night and they stank. 10,640 quarters only produced four Canadians, two US nickels and one religious medal. That's the most quarters I've ever searched in one sitting and not found at least one silver quarter. Bummer.

5,000 pennies turned up twenty-seven Wheats, ninety-five Canadians and one Norwegian 50 ore. The Wheats were:

1913, 1927, 1934, 1936, 1938, 1941, 1944(2), 1945(3), 1946(2), 1948(2), 1951D, 1952, 1953, 1955, 1955D, 1956, 1956D(4), 1957D, 1958D

Found: 1 penny (at the Tiger Mart), 1 nickel (at the park)
