When Tyler was little he had a thing for carving or scratching or writing his initials on things. He scratched them on a car once (good thing we drive junkers) and when confronted he was indignant--why did we think he did it? He carved them in a dresser and in the logs our house is made of. The other day I was in my craft room which used to be occupied by the kids and I saw this...initials of Tyler Lee done in glue from a glue gun. Shows just how observant I am! I've always wondered why there is a hardened spot of something on the carpet..drippings no doubt. I suppose when you are one of four, you must leave your mark somehow.

John's mom decided she should have a new roof. Lucky for her, she has 2 grandboys who do construction. Tanner and Tyler were the pros. Matt and Tessa were on the roof too. John and I stayed on the ground and helped pick up all those shingles full of tarpaper and nails. I only did it yesterday and .....OH BOY! was I sore and stiff this morning. Grandma's got her new roof.

On Saturday we had a garage sale in Dakota. It was a city-wide sale. I tell you what....it's a lot of work! It is fun, but not the way to get rich. It's always fun to see what people buy. The stuff we never thot would sell....first to go! It was a cool day. We had a grand total of $97 and lots of junk left over which is still in my van ready to go to the Good Steward.
The other morning John told me to bring my camera cuz he had to show me something. We drove out to the point that overlooks the valley. He said it was just 100 yds or so. I, of course, was wearing flip flops and my feet were wet and slimy from the wet grass. Had to walk down the steep path, and try to keep from sliding off my shoes. And there it was---a big bunch of pretty purple flowers on the hillside. It was a nice thing for him to share with me!

Last weekend We went on the 100 mile garage sale. We made it to Nelson and turned around. No..that's not John. An interesting character who perhaps didn't have a car ;) Matt and Tessa came with us. We didn't come home with as much stuff as some other years. There was a baby furniture theme which we hope is not an omen. I bought a cute old little crib for $1 and Tessa got 2 antique high chairs.
Now this weekend we will sell our junk at Tessa's in Dakota. They have a city wide sale.
