Yesterday after school the girls were in the backyard kicking around a ball. Vivian comes in and tells me that she needs my help. She kicked the ball really hard and her shoe came off and disappeared. She thinks it went over the back fence.
So I get out the ladder so that I can peek in the yard behind us to see if it's actually there before I go knocking on their door. Not there. What I do find is half the carcass of something fuzzy on top of the fence.
Could not bring myself to closely examine it. Finally found Vivian's shoe in a bush.
