Bears generally make me smile, we've only seen one while living in Vermont, but it was exciting and fun to see it. Last week, we got to see the what happens when a bear straight out of hibernation smells a dumpster that hasn't been emptied in 5 months (since the trash trucks can't come up our road in the winter). Not fun or exciting. The trash was strewn over a 100 yards through the forest. Terrible! And Jason had to pick it up twice because his locking system failed on first attempt (bears are apparently smarter than they look), but has held fast since then. Yay-hoo!
On an exciting note, Luke started smiling last week. What fun!
