#4 You must keep your vehicles on your property. Not 6 "abandoned looking" vehicles parked in the street for weeks on end. Not a humongous trailer full of trash parked on our property and blocking the sidewalk. Just your couple of cars, parked in your garage or driveway. Is that too much to ask??
By the way, we really do need good renters next door. If you, or anyone you know is interested, please let me know! I can hardly contain my excitement as they are loading their trailer as we speak!

I had such a good time in Kansas visiting her last month, and it's always hard when the time comes to an end.
With 10 kids in our house, you don't get an awful lot of one on one time with parents. I must say, I am so thankful to have such a good relationship with my mom as an adult. We love having my parents come and visit. When we lived in Phoenix, they would often stay for quite some time, because 2 of my sisters live there as well. Once they stayed for 2 months, during the holidays, and it was great. I miss having them around, and the kids do too!
We will see them next month at the family reunion in South Dakota, and they are thinking of going to Phoenix for Thanksgiving (which we will be there as well).
I love being able to pick up the phone and talk to them often, talk about anything, but mostly about nothing. Love you mom! Happy Birthday!

We signed up for the summer reading program last week, and Sofie is off to a great start. I don't even want to know how many times I read "Hello Kitty, Hello Numbers" to her while she waited to do her thing.

This is Bailee - the only other girl in her class this year. They had so much fun together and will miss each other!

This morning when I was trying to sleep in, I could hear Bella talking to Jeff in a whiny/bratty voice (which doesn't come out TOO often!). It would have gone over better, with me anyway, had she burst into Veruca Salt's song from "Willy Wonka and The Chocolate Factory".
After Bella would sing her snappy little song "I want the world, I want the whole world!", I would turn and say "No, I don't think so. Run along and play now."
Maybe we would all have great singing voices if the world were like that. It would be quite entertaining anyway!
