Hmm… that’s too bad about Will wanting to join the army. Maybe you should constantly tell him all the reasons the army is awful. They stink, they never have baths, they have to sleep in dirty wet trenches, they don’t get shiny uniforms (on the good side at least, haha!) and they have to kill people. And it’s good to march, bad to run. (If he likes running, that is.) You could also tell him that most people in the army are deaf, dumb, missing limbs, and (gasp!) illiterate. Maybe that’ll help.
Um…you know what, I don’t think your “getting back at the Montoyas” plan was that good, actually. Because if you dumped it in the waterfall going away from the Montoyas, do you know where it ends up? HERE! At our house! Yucky goo pouring down our waterfall while we’re washing for the sewing circle! Not good. Next time, just put it in their laundry basket or something.
I think your general store IS really cool though, and so far we’re really enjoying the coffee and the chickens sure like their finest quality corn kernels!
Anyway, write back, love, kirsten
