So Far, So Good

The girls have been out of school for the summer for almost 5 hours now. I'm not totally insane as yet. For this I am thankful.

I just trimmed #2's bangs. She insisted on me using scissors. I was nervous, because I had a son, not a daughter and little girls who are almost 8 years old can get quite upset if you mess up their bangs. I think the only reason they are basically straight is because I'm a quilter. I've learned to "do" basically straight even if I can't get truly straight to save my life.

Number 1 heated up little JT's dinner while I was trimming bangs. Then she heated up her own dinner. Number 2 started her dinner heating when #1's was finished and then she read her brother a book while hers was heating. This could work out fine. I just have to keep the girls reading to little JT the rest of the time I'm here.

Sounds like a plan!

I was thinking of you last night as I was watching the Rangers game. They look promising this year. Tough loss last night, but can't win them all.

Joe and I are headed down to Austin in a few minutes - he doesn't know where we are going. I have arranged a surprise birthday weekend for him. We will have a party tonight and a little floating on the San Marcos River tomorrow. As white as I am I probably will be a lobster on Sunday!

Hang in there - this will be a tough summer, but in time you will look back and have many happy memories too.
