Dennis and his dad took some time today to fix my squealing dryer. (Later, Dennis, with help from Henry and Luke, replaced the front brakes on his Audi — he did the rear brakes a few days ago.)

Henry helped me out today by leading Jack, Sam and Stella through a science experiment comparing the density of tap water to the density of salt water.

It seems like the kids and I were out all afternoon, but at least we picked up some much-needed stuff, like clothes that fit.

I managed to get shots of them all this evening. Further, Luke managed to get named the Portland Press Herald's Golf MVP. If you'd like to read all about him, you can do so here.
