I have a lot I'd like to write about but couldn't put much of it together today so I'm just going to ramble for a bit.
Anybody know why our diesel minivan gets bad city mileage? Is it normal to get really bad mileage in the city with a diesel?
I just love our children. BoyD may be a genius. We're pretty sure. He memorized a 46 page book on sharks. We think it was the in-utero Mozart. Or he just takes after his mother. Either way it won't be long until he can outsmart me so I have to be thinking ahead. Thankfully his mommy is smarter than me. :-) She hates it when I say that. BabyM is now mobile. She's only 6 months old but she barrel rolls, then flips to change direction. We found her under her rocking chair after 3 minutes alone in her room. That's the end of leaving her playing on her little baby gym.
I cannot wait for Red Raider football to start. I know I won't see a single game...but I can listen on internet radio. How incredible is that?
We saw the X-Files movie last night. In English! It was really special. And it was, well, like a 90 minute X-files episode so we liked it. Jenny's a nut for the X-files.
Did I mentions Jenny is attending a women's conference today? At our church? I'm so proud of her! So her and a friend and BabyM are going to do whatever women do at a Guatemalan womens conference. Me and BoyD are having ManDay. Should be lots of fun.
We have a eucalyptus tree in our yard. I planted it when we moved here. It's not very big yet, 4ft or so. But when it gets bigger I want to try to find a koala to live in it. Actually, that's probably not a very good idea. I've heard they are mean. But I do want to get some timbers and make a garden area. Just a 2x10 foot area for a few veggies. Our whole back yard is I 10x30 or a little smaller but it's a yard so we're pumped. And I think I can grow tomatoes year round here...something unthinkable to my North Texas mind.
I hope anyone who reads this and still gets summer breaks is enjoying it. Most of life does not have a summer break so, take it and enjoy it. The 'real world' (whatever that means) will wait for you.
Well that's about it for now. BoyD and I are going to try to build something today together. Not sure what yet but it will probably include cardboard and a lot of fun. Enjoy your Saturday!
