Here is my favorite moment today.

We got a new (used) van at the end of December. Not because we wanted to. We really liked our old van. But there comes a point when the repairs are costing more than getting a new vehicle. And then the final straw that broke the camel's back . . .I don't know much about cars. But I have been told this is a piston rod sticking out of the oil pan. Not a good thing.
What age do boys grow out of wanting to build forts? I have no idea! Why? Because my teenage son and his friend recently asked if they could build a fort in the movie room. This fort was a little more complicated than throwing a blanket over a table. It was two stories that included an entry way, master bedroom, theater room, lower bedroom, kitchen, a changing room, a living room, and air conditioning.
I wish this picture could do it justice. It was quite a sight. Here's to having boys!
I took Thomas and Hannah to a few thrift stores yesterday to look for roller blades. I had to look through the dishes too. Look at this beautiful old plate I found for my collection. I loved it so much I wanted to buy all four that the store had. It was only $0.99! I think it is my new favorite.
