Yesterday, we stayed late chatting at Bible study and we accidentally locked Justin out of the house (he got dropped off while we were still there and had forgotten his key). As a result, he has now proclaimed himself MacGuyver. And all because he managed to start a fire (in the fire pit) with just a barbeque, some paper and a couple pieces of wet wood.
Did I mention he's quite proud of himself? It took him 5 minutes to tell me the story on the phone. It was really sweet. To tell the truth, I thought it was pretty cool too and I liked it even more because he was happy. I love seeing my kids happy, and being able to delight in the everyday things. Especially when the situation could easily have been a negative one :)
Today was a pretty great day too! We took the boat out for it's inaugural ride and had a great day at Falcon lake.
The very first trip!
Everyone else, ready to go!
I know I've said this before, but I'm so happy that Helmut is happy. We had a great day together with the kids and I can't wait to make these day trips a regular occurance!
