Good morning, it is Friday.
Today is the last day of school, and will be the warmest day of the month as we get close to 80 degrees. One of Hansen's classmates has an after school party that Hansen will attend. Lillie also has a birthday party to attend this evening. The busy road between our neighborhood and the shopping district has been under construction for a long time as it has been being widened, big sidewalks added, and a traffic circle put in along with a new road to even more stores behind the medical center. Lillie and I decided to walk to Walmart (the closest of all the stores, to buy a gift for the party) and check out the new sidewalk (the road if far from finished) then go to the playground at the medical center. It took us 23 minutes to get from our front door to the front door of Walmart. With the stoplights, traffic, looking for a parking spot and walking the entire parking lot, it probably takes just over 10 minutes (give or take 5 minutes depending on time of day and construction) to get from door to door taking the car. I think with the better weather, walking is not a bad option...just can't buy big things like cat litter.
The above picture is of Me and Maren at the Children's Alliance Dinner that some photographer snapped of us. Maren found it on their web site. Since I was Maren's guest, my name tag is not quite correct...if you look closely you can see I was Julian Ostergard for the evening. The Horror! Usually one of us is operating the camera, it is nice to have a picture of us.
See you tomorrow.
