She and I have time to talk while the Thing 1 and two other kids, including the other women's daughter, are at their Lego meeting at her house. We are doing a First Lego League team this year, the other woman and I are the coaches. We're having trouble getting much done at the meetings, mostly because we're trying to let the kids control what happens... even though it's driving the other mom and me crazy because a lot less gets accomplished at each meeting than she and I would like. Sigh.
There are other factors too, like the day the moose showed up in her yard. It started with the mom in front and the two babies on the side yard and the dad at the neighbors.
She was really close to the house, but I felt pretty safe on the porch.
I haven't tried the moose repellant yet, next year when my trees leaf out I will be drenching them.
