  1. shoot! you all have so much Doing and Thinking going on over there!!!!! we had a whole lot, i feel like we had a lot of vitamin D to work on soaking up, so...that's what we were up to! I love the figuring that goes on - the Karate Kid out of the blue (was it?) - I got zombie questions at bedtime and what would happen if you had to pull someone up out of a frozen pond? would they be breakable?
