It's raining, it's pouring...

And, it's been another month...

Brenden turned 5 on the 22nd. We had a 2-part celebration. On the 29th we had a party at the town park followed by ice cream and cake at the house. Nora's family, Grampy, and a family with kids in Micaila & Brenden's classes showed up to share the fun. Then on the 22nd I took the day off work, and we took Brenden out with Grampy... breakfast at Beefer's Buffet in Alex Bay, an Uncle Sam's boat tour of the 1000 Islands, walking tour of Boldt Castle, JRECK's subs at Scenic Park, some play time at the playground there and some beach time as well, and ice cream at Way Cool in Theresa on the way home. :) Yup - it was a FULL day. LOL

On the 30th he had his school physical, and the doctor's office noted an issue with his sight so I booked an appointment at our eye doctor on August 2nd. He now has glasses - which he managed to bend by falling asleep when he was in trouble and supposed to be sitting 24 hrs after getting them. Grampy got them adjusted 2 days later when he had Denny in town. And, 4 days later... Micaila broke them. She got mad because he touched her toy laptop and erased her answer - so she slammed his head into the floor in just the right manner that it snapped the arm off the front of the frame. Empire Vision temporarily replaced them with a pair of frames off the wall in a different color, and Mike will be taking him in tomorrow to get the lenses switched into the correct color frames which they had to order.

The kids are leaving early Saturday morning with Mike for a visit to LI for about 10 days.

This morning I passed an under control fire scene on my way to work, and wondered about it, but managed to put it on a back burner in my mind due to being swamped with senior work atm at work - until the afternoon when I noticed a friend's status on Facebook, and realized it was her sister's home. She and her 4 boys lost everything. I'm kind of glad I hadn't managed to get all of our donations out of the house yet 'cause the boys are 2, 3, 6, & 10 so I have 2 totes of clothes Brenden's outgrown that should fit at least 2 of the boys. I gathered some other odds'n'ends, and Heather will be grabbing it all from me at work tomorrow to give to her sister.

After months of unusual cool and rainy weather we've had a week of unbearable heat and humidity. We just had two brief rain showers and lord does it feel good!

And, now to catch up on the LOs...
