I love my church family. They put on a wonderful dessert full of wise words from Abi Penner, Katherine Simmons, Rick Herbert, Jerome Leonard, and Jamey Mills. It was a great night.
We are in no hurry to have our kids drive, but Paul needed this so he could get a photo ID, so he could take placement tests for college. He read the manual for a year, and I finally told him he needed to go do it by this day. He doesn't usually like his picture taken, but I think he was proud of his accomplishment. :)

I already had this in a hard copy (right), but I bought it for $1.99 on the Kindle so I could listen to it while I work in the kitchen. I put it in my windowsill behind my "FAITH" sign so it doesn't fall down.

This is where the Mary's meets the mighty Willamette River. I took many pictures with the kids for Mother's Day, but those can go in our family album. I took a 22 mile bike ride because I have sick INSIDE for 4 1/2 days! I had sunshine and pouring down rain on this ride! Exhilirating!
I really started getting sick on Monday, but I didn't succumb until today. I took less than a mile walk and crawled in the door. I had grand plans for active things, but I settled on indoor projects: getting through Deuteronomy on the Bible Book Club, checking out Summer Driver's Ed for Paul, and writing a recommendation letter for Mara.
Shelly, Sandy, and I went for a walk around the block after the barbeque last night and walked into news of Osama's death. I watched quiet a bit of news today as a result. I liked this picture of the TV as the rubble of the twin towers blended in with his image.

We had our first free Saturday in a long time. So, George made waffles for the men (I don't like them), and we all sat and gabbed.
