As I am sure you are aware, it’s Friday, the last day of July. This afternoon the Goldpebbles and I engaged in various indoor projects to keep Jonah from stressing the cut on his right hand. It was mostly cloudy with periods of a little rain, so working indoors made sense. The boys worked together to assemble a new Lego spaceship.
Then Sam worked on assembling a Vex Robotics Pull Back Racecar while Jonah and Ollie resurrected some old Snap Circuit kits. Then Sam and Ollie headed outside with Shadow while Jonah and I made Toll House Squares. Jonah, Sam, and Jed head out tomorrow afternoon for a couple of nights of Boy Scout Camping and Jonah wanted to make sure they had ‘survival food’ with them.
Tonight, Mark’s brother Steve called and we talked for a very long time just catching up on life. I haven’t talked to him since I flew to Florida in January to visit with my friends Linda and Mike Stuart. It was great talking with Steve, and speaking of Linda and Mike, they should be flying back to the US from Spain any day now. Bike touring in the days of coronavirus just didn’t make sense, so they are going to look for a place to rent in the Denver, Colorado area. Denver does not have the warm weather they are looking for, but their son Garrett, his wife Katie, and what will be there three or four month-old grandson will be moving to that area in the spring. So the grandparents-to-be are going to check out the area as a possible permanent landing spot.
