here at the isa home. i love when my kids are happy. nothing gives me greater joy than seeing pure joy radiate from the faces of my children.
today was a great day!
first (and i don't have a picture, sigh...) sissy faxed her application in and paid her deposit on an apartment in utah. her official move in date is may 5th. she is SO excited to be going away to college and being on her own. i am very excited for her, but at the same time my heart is heavy. my mind is racing...what haven't i taught her...what will she need...i need to put a recipe book together...i need to make lists. ahhhhh!
puter, if you read this...i love you and i know without a shadow of a doubt that this is what and where you need to be going. i know you'll be successful in all the things you put your mind to. you are talented and strong and you are great! focus and stay the course!
ok, now that i got that off my chest...let me share with you the reason for the happy smile on bub's face.
if you don't already know, bub loves nothing more than to ride motorcycles. he has been since he was 3. for a long time now he has wanted to go from his current yz80 to a yz125, but he needed to grow alittle and save a lot. well, he grew a lot and saved some and somehow he found a great deal on craigs list. long story short. the bike needed a ton of work, the parts (ok the engine)finally came in and bob stayed up until 3 am last night(well, this morning) to get all 600 pieces put together and running. the sound of the engine running put a smile on bub's face that i'm not sure i've ever seen before. i heard him say as he was going to bed, "this was a great day!"
it's been a good day, a very good day.
