The most awesome surprise took place yesterday. I received a phone call from one of the guys who over seen our bathroom project. This is how we met him. He had told us his brother worked in a big company. In a very neat type job. His brother heard we collect Stephen King and sent a package for us.The one who over seen the project sent a picture to his brother standing in front of a display in my livingroom. Two of the nicest guys one could meet

Our son done something very thoughtful today. He belongs to the library summer reading program and they do a prize party on the last day. Throughout the problem you earn entrys. At the party you pick the prizes you would like and put how many ever amount into the box for that one. Anyhow my son divided his entries into three prizes boxes. LOL The emoji bag with lots of candy, He won 5 times. LOL Then he win a bluetooth speaker. Anyhow a couple of girls asked him for an emoji bag,so he gave each one two bags and kept one for himself. So these girls probably have a sugar buzz.:)

Mikey is a very kind young man to share all that candy. How did he like the summer reading program?

he loves to read. So he really enjoys the program. But the craft part of it, he picks just certain ones to go to. he makes the things he is interested in. This summer he made a bracelet for dad. A baseball cap for himself and a couple other things.
