Kyle's turn

Saturday it was time to watch Kyle at the drag strip. Not a race, but Test and Tune during a Grudge Race at US-131 in Martin. It was a long day, but the girls were so good. They set up a little "base camp" in the race car trailer –  a table with Legos, dolls and coloring books. It made me smile seeing people continuously stop by to admire Kyle's bad-a*# car while just feet away our girls have transformed the inside of the trailer into a little girl play land. So sweet.

Kyle's dream come true?

Last night we took Ellie and Josie to the Sand Drags in Silver Lake so they could drive the four-wheeler down the drag strip. Yes, the girls were excited, but Kyle…he smiled the entire time.

Where's Waldo?

Last week was really, really busy. Between daily swim lessons, a busy work schedule, and our regular weekly schedule, it felt like I was constantly late for something. Throw in Vacation Bible School each night and it was a recipe for summer fun overload. But…the girls were great and Kyle and I enjoyed our quiet evenings while they were at church.

The last night of VBS was a "Glow Concert". Basically, the kids sing the songs they learned during the week, adorned with glow bracelets and necklaces while the gymnasium is dark with black light. They look forward to this night each year. (It reminds me of a mini rave…but with kids…at church.)

While Kyle and I were visiting with another parent, we were looking out across the crowd and noticed a woman in an orange striped dress. I admired the dress earlier in the evening – when the normal lights were on – two shades of orange, big horizontal stripes. (I am the "Queen of Stripes".) I'm fairly certain that when she chose her outfit for the evening, she didn't realize she's stand out quite like this…



Am I the only one reminded of the Where's Waldo books from decades ago?
