I am always amazed at how much service makes your heart so full and how much generousity there really is in this world. Even though many did not know Sydney, that did not stop them from donating.
Thanks to all those that stopped by, thanks to my family for coming out and supporting me and thanks to all my co-workers for giving up a part of their Saturday to help make this car wash a success.
If you saw an earlier blog, Sydney has a very fierce bone cancer. She is at Children's and the Ronald McDonald house for 30 weeks. She is going under tons of treatment and two upcoming surgeries. She is a sweet little girl. I encourage you to read her site at www.caringbridge.org/visit/sydneyboyer .
I just wanted to take a moment to thank Claudette for staying with us and for watching Paisley all last week. I can not thank you enough and express my love for you. I am very lucky to have such a great mother-in-law.
You are the Best!
I called the Police to get a report filed so I could get it fixed and paid for by our insurance company. I then proceeded to put on some warmer clothes on in order to greet the officer out in the pouring rain-there was no time to worry about my hair. Officer Hoagland pulled up and said good morning Sandra as he got out of his patrol car-I in turn said good morning Jim.
Officer Hoagland opened the truck and found a rock no bigger than the size of a quarter on my floor board across the cab. He thinks that was the culprit. I asked him if there were others that night and he said no others.
There is good news to this story. First, it is nice to work for the City and know all of the officers. It makes it easier to talk to them and Hoagland is one of my favorites. Second, the BMW and my mother-in-law's brand new Toyota Prius were not harmed. Third and finally, we are fully covered with no deductible on the truck, so we are good to go.

I am sure she doesn't mind me sharing-at least I hope not. She is experiencing some great sites and a fun culture. I am so glad they chose orders over seas.
We plan on visiting in 2011!!! We can't wait!
My mom bought these talking, dancing ducks for the grandchildren awhile ago. Paisley really enjoys dancing with it-she enjoys dancing to music period.
Last night after dinner, Ryanne and Paisley entertained us by dancing to Splish Splash...that is what the duck plays.
Check out Ryanne, that girl can dance...I believe I even caught some head banging in there. Too funny!
I just had to take some pictures of Ryanne and Paisley playing in her room. Paisley loves it when other kids come over. Ryanne is a bit of a ham too when it comes to the camera. They played and played.
It is really nice to keep in touch with friends from High School. It is also nice to live in the place you grew up. There is something comforting in that. Have a great day!
