I suppose if I'm gonna be talking about the family much, I ought to give a brief overview of who everyone is. Of coure, there's me, LJD, and my husband, Mr. LJD. But even better, there's Keep, our preteen daughter. She's a soccer player (a keeper, to be precise), voracious reader and game player. She's bold and courageous and caring. Our middle boy, Bogey, who is in early elementary school. He's a motormouth, a snuggle bug, a golf addict and a video game nut. Lastly, there's Dare. He's the baby of the family. With eyelashes a supermodel would be envious of and the unique ability to remove just about any article of clothing, he's quite the precocious one year old. Finally, we've got quite the menagerie of animals around these parts. Two dogs, each nearly a hundred pounds, a cat, and if Keep has her way, soon enough there'll be a turtle moseying around.
So that's our household in a nutshell. A very loud, chaotic nutshell.
