Odds and Ends

I'm sitting here listening to the thunderstorm as I write this. April has been such a busy month!  I took and passed my Nebraska Real Estate Salesperson exam, and am joining CBS Home Real Estate.  I heard so much about how hard the exam was that I basically had a panic attack the morning I took it.  Fortunately, I did well.  Is there a profession that pays well for being good at taking tests?
Brynley is maturing into a very handsome fellow. He is so smart and is learning so quickly.  We are going to a Tracy Sklenar seminar this week, with a working spot in Monday's puppy session. Tracy is one of Susan Garrett's trainer's, so I'm really excited about this!
Son got his braces on early this month.  He is doing well, and we are looking forward to junior high in the fall.
Duane finished painting the living room.  Here is the accent wall.  On to the kitchen next, with lots of taping to be done and priming over the bright yellow before the new color can go up.
Brynley did some product testing of our Petlane items.  So far, he really approves. This is his hide-a-squirrel toy.  It is a favorite. 
Solara, our almost 11 year old cat also got in on the product testing.  She loves this kitty toy! This is the kitty calisthenics toy.  Anything that can get this fat, old cat jumping around and playing like she did, gets a big thumbs up from me!

Home Makeover

Big, white walls are no longer white, hooray!  There is a lot more to go, but painting is off to a great start!

We girls went and had our hair cut to update our style.
Then I found these kids in my tree!
