I didn't write yesterday and still no pictures. Have found where to put the card from my camera but don't understand the rest of it. We had great fun yesterday. Two of our children - Christyn and Tom along with their families came out. We had a wonderful day. We bbq'd, watched the kids play in the pool (aka a large round stock tank), looked at the critters and sat in the shade. Had the best talks with the kids and laughed until I thought I would pop. It was a great day. They were going to go watch the fireworks but Bob and I stayed home. No fireworks allowed in Spokane County and there is a huge fine if caught. However, our neighbors used to do it anyway and I did not want to take a chance.

Today was a very nice day. Still hot but thats OK its July and it is supposed to be. Our church has been building a new building and today was our first service in the new building. It was awesome. It is not quite as large as I thought it would be but for the time being instead of 2 services there will be just one. That is nice because we saw people we had not seen for a long time and it was great. I did not amble down the childrens wing but am sure it is wonderful too. We have a flag pole and a flag that was dedicated after the service. That was very moving. We had about one minute of rain and it felt good and then it was just hot again. It was a very special day for us at the Turning Point Open Bible Church.

Bob was going to trim Amelia's feet today but it was too hot so we took a long nap this afternoon. He will do it tomorrow. Then we have a pasture to put her in with alot of green grass. I will do her final worming tomorrow and we will giver her her final round of shots and then she can come out of isolation. She has probably gained close to 200 pounds since being here. She is a sweet old mare.

Tonight our grandson Lane is coming to visit for 2 or three weeks. He is such a kick. If you read Nikki's blog - Life With Boys, he is the Buggy boy. Then Isaac will come for one week after Lane goes home. He is Monkey. He has never come and stayed by himself and we are looking foreward to it.

I have about 3/4 of my pictures reduced in size so we can get them off the old computer. Jim will come tomorrows. I am anxious for it to go somewhere else.

Remember: Those who bring sunshine to the lives of others cannot keep it from themselves.

Have a sunshine filled day.
