I'm starting to understand why Brita doesn't answer her phone between 7 and 8 in the morning! Her attention to getting all the details of getting to school on time is laser focused! It's best to just stand back and pick up the pieces if needed. Once the drop-off is accomplished, a person can take a deep breath!
Back in Truckee, Bob and I went to the little downtown area to poke around in the stores and get some lunch. We needed to stop at the Variety Store most of all. It's the old Five and Dime store that is probably one of only a few that are in existence today. They have shelves full of games and toys and puzzles and pranks and legos and art supplies. And that's just for starters. I went in to get another pair of miniature hands, but sadly, there were no more! I guess it was sometime last summer that I found them, and found out that Jack was freaked out and disgusted by them, so I wanted more! Plus the miniature feet, too. So now the search continues! Brita met us to help pick out a birthday present for Loti. Our newest family member just had a birthday and we didn't have it marked on our calendars, so now we can get this present sent off to her. Along with little cards and notes from the kids.
Later, after school, we all went to the final soccer night for Ian's team, and Ben was a co-coach. So the kids played the parents, and found out that they still had a few smooth moves and plays to learn! It was not intense, a lot of yelling and laughing, just the way sports should be. The playground by the fields was good entertainment for Jack and Leo. Pizza was served for all, and the season has ended.
Back home for some schoolwork and playing UNO games. Bob and Ben moved the deck furniture down to a storage spot behind the house, it's going to be winter soon! The kids have a nice yard to play on, a good amount of space with giant pine trees away from the house. The house is on a little rise above the road, but there is enough level paved area in front that we can park the trailer and not obstruct the garage. We have an extension cord running from the house to give us enough power to run the fridge, furnace and lights. Works great!
Thank you for stopping by! I appreciate the time you have taken to look for and read my story. I hope you find something that you like!
