A Break From Silence

Good lord, how did it get to be the end of June already? Before I know it, it will be summer vacation and we will be heading back to the States for a visit.

Bailey has been staple free for about two weeks now and is back to doing all things boy- swimming, climbing trees and the like- with the same zeal as before. The cut healed really well and you don't really notice the scar unless you are looking for it. We usually get Bailey's hair buzz cut in the summer and I was worried that the scar would be too obvious, but it doesn't look like that will be a problem.

Sophie is as full of life as ever and she really loves being able to go to "two pools"- one at preschool and one for her swimming lessons. Recently, she loves helping out in the kitchen- doing little things like pulling the stems off of cherry tomatoes or shelling peas- as well as hanging the laundry up to dry.

Our refrigerator bit the dust. Or maybe, I should say it died a slow death. Butter was melting, drinks weren't getting cold, but still we kept hoping- maybe if we adjust the settings a little or maybe it just needs a good cleaning. We got it when we were first married, a hand me down from a family member that had used it for three years before giving it to us, so we figured we had better replace it before we all got food poisoning.

We picked out and paid for it on Saturday and it was delivered on Sunday. After the delivery men left, Sophie went to introduce herself and give the new fridge a big hug. She even said good bye to it before we left for school this morning.

Our new fridge is much bigger than our old one and I am trying to resist the urge to go to Costco to get stuff to fill it up. Since we will be leaving in a few weeks, I wouldn't want to waste anything. Hope I can hold off until we make it back from the States.

Bummer your fridge bit the dust. But yay on getting a new fridge. Resist the urge to fill it with many Costco yummy's if ya can, until after you get back though. Resist resist. You must resist, lol. ; ) ; ) j/k.
