some much needed encouragement....

...after an extremely tough week. (One of Zach's kindergarten papers from yesterday.)

1. Enough money in the bank to cover some unexpected van repairs. (It's a 1993 and we have had it for 6 years with very few problems...ok, so maybe the repairs were a little expected...)
2. Kevin's Friday off coinsiding with the above van sure helped with the logistics of it all.
3. A nearby mechanic that was able to do the repairs quickly and inexpensively. Seriously, all 5 of us in a S-10 extended cab pickup??? We managed once, but not so much fun. Thankfully it was only one trip.


  1. Oh my goodness, that is too sweet!

  2. Zach is getting so big! What a sweet reminder from a wonderful little guy!

  3. I guess your van has really been a good vehicle...remember you made it all the way to MN and back to Michigan last November. Maybe when it is beyond reasonable repair costs you can sell it to someone for a demoliton derby.

  4. Isn't it fun to see kids grow and learn?

    Loved the Zach letter. Isn't that just the best gift in the world? It makes all those "crabby" days worth every minute.
