It's Summer!

Well, it's Sunny, anyway. Maybe the mercury needs to rise a bit more to make it officially summer, but after a long cold winter, we're ready for it! Kaitlyn is out walking her puppy to the new house. What a good dog! If only all dogs were that easy to take care of...
We're having a summer meal for supper tonight - barbequed hamburgers, potato salad, carrot sticks, jello and lemonade! Mmmmm!

Kaitlyn's Quip

Yesterday we were driving home from my Mom's birthday party. We were on a hill and could see the lights of Mission. Kaitlyn had a good view of them because we were in the truck and her chair goes in the middle seat so she had a good view out the front window. She said something like, "Hey, those lights look like stars lining up to get ice cream!" Twas very cute.

Random Acts of Kindness

Last June we went and handed out flowers to some seniors' homes in town and the residents enjoyed it so much we thought we'd do it again.
Our Life Group from church went to an assisted living place and handed out an early Valentine's day present. We thought lots of the people there may have lost loved ones and so we thought we'd brighten their day.
The girls had a blast and the seniors loved seing the kids.

Hot Wheels

No, not little matchbox cars, but Darcy did get a new toy. The old rusty van was dying - needing a new transmission or something we didn't want to pay for on an old thing, so Darcy went truck shopping.
It's a 2004 Chevy Silverado (I think). Fully loaded. Dual climate control, AC, heated leather seats, cruize, the works. (I think this time it's rain, not dust on the camera lense!)
The reason he needed a truck was because Darcy and Ryan found a great deal on a trailer that came full of tools. So he needed a truck to haul it.
This will definately be the vehicle we take our summer vacation with!

"I Want Candy..."

"I want candy..." What parent hasn't heard that a million times? Though, probably not followed by, "...only once a week." !!!!! Ok!!!! That's what Rachael said on the way home from school today, and I, for one, will not argue! In school they're working on nutrition and the four - I mean five - food groups. Apparently there's now a "Junk Food" group. Rachael said her teacher suggested eating junk food only once a week, and she wants to do it! Fine by me!
