Today seemed like the perfect day to bring out the bubbles. We have a nice long area of grass to enjoy this summer. Our yard, our neighbor decided she needed to go home because her dh is deployed, and then a common area...so lots of grassy area to enjoy....
The neighborhood kids also had a water fight. I thought it was far to cold for such. Tis the season for all banner of critters to begin showing up in various water bottles.....INSIDE my house. I've re-established with Zander that any critter in a bottle IN MY HOUSE, will be thrown away. ::snort::
A neighbor found a mouse. We don't seem to have that trouble. I think the 4 ft rat snake did it's part....but we are fighting these guys.
I spent a part of the afternoon getting to know part of this year's local PWOC board.
Have you ever seen tools on a cake?
We went to see Disney's Ocean tonight. Wow - the message was loud and clear - personally, I think they'd get a better response if they preached a little less and let the stunning photography speak for itself. We've been studying oceans this year, and the nature views WERE breathtaking. I did point out to the kids that all the "pristine ocean" shots from "billions of years ago" were, in fact, filmed last year. ::snort:: I'm that sort of movie goer. Blame it on 26 1/2 years of married life. ::grin:: It was fun to see several families we know at the movies.
We enjoyed another treat that Akiko brought last night. Like miniature Dairy Queen treats.
I worked on grabbing data from an online survey and putting it into a PowerPoint presentation for our upcoming, local board planning meeting.
The other big news of this week is that Jared now has a "driver's permit". He can only drive on base. We have to log 9 hours before he can have a license....so....we hope to start tomorrow.
As we ended the day I suddenly remembered: "I started yogurt 12 hours ago!" ::snort:: Good thing I remembered THAT.
All in all, it's been a very good day. We're missing Michael today....but every day gone is a day closer to being together again.....
Living all of life before the face of God...
