Spay and Neuter Clinic

Jacob and I took our cats to the free spay and neuter clinic at the fairgrounds yesterday. They had 4 vets doing cats and 3 vets doing dogs. They said that they would "fix" 150 cats in 8 hours. What a blessing to have this available! Can you imagine 150 more cats running around our little town making more kittens? We would be over run. And they do that many every year.

When we checked the cats in, they asked if we would like to volunteer. We did :) They had us keep the cats warm by covering them with a towel and putting a sock of rice that had been microwaved next to them. Then we sat and petted and rubbed and talked to the cats until they woke up from the anesthetic. That took anywhere from 20 minutes to 1 1/2 hours. It was a good experience for Jacob and I. Maybe we'll do it again next year even though we won't have any more cats to take in.

Boffer Wars

We had our first Boffer War in the Civic Center today. Shane organized the kids this time much faster and without hesitation. They played capture the flag, healers, and no man's land. Don't ask me the rules. I just sit on the side and talk to the other moms. They all had fun (I think). They are worn out by the time we come home. It seems to be good exercise for them.

I want to see if this is emailed.

I received an email yesterday morning from some RV homeschoolers. They said they were in Bozeman and were looking for something for the teens to do for Halloween. We invited them for dinner and to the Trunk or Treat/Carnival at church (and they came).

It was fun. They are Jewish, and their 15yo son said a blessing on the food in Hebrew. We had a good discussion about religion, then about homeschooling. They are traveling the country for two years to see the sights and learn about American History/Geography.
