Gales of squeals brought me to see what was going on out here. What was going on was roly-poly races.

The kids and I went out for a walking adventure to get pizza. It’s a schlep and they all held up like troupers. Everyone got just what she wanted. Then because our feet were hot from walking we stopped off at the park to wiggle our toes in the cool soft grass.
Bailey was with us for lunch and then…
Trevor has been here for a couple of weeks now to help his parents and Christa came a few days ago too.
Christa and other young volunteers spent the last two months with a missionary group in Guatemala. As well as missionary activities she was working in a hospital and in village medical clinics where she learned how to do the type of procedures that would have required a skilled nursing degree here.
What an awesome experience for her break between sophomore and junior year at Liberty College. And yes indeed she can habla some mighty fine español. This is her home-stay family.
Trevor and Christa both went back to Hawaii today. We will miss you!
Hartley had a stroke back in March, he was improving in April, he had evened out in May, and taken a turn for the worse in June. He’s in the hospital now while they try to figure out what to do next.
Lona is soooo tired. She asked me ‘quick, quick, what’s the name of that dictator in Cuba?’ ‘Castro’ I replied. ‘Castro! Castro!’ she called out. After a couple of call-outs this fellow turned around. Can you see his name tag? Fidel. He took it in such good spirit. ‘It happens all the time’ he said.
Happy Birthday to Me from DAK&L! Breakfast out and then a visit to Darryl’s officeat ActiVision (my choice!) , home of the Call of Duty franchise, Guitar Hero, and others but what the kids looove is Skylanders.
It’s a playground in there. Everyone has to play the games. It’s part of their job.
