Our children are attending a youth worker’s conference so we are staying with our grandchildren for a few days. Normally we would have had the grandkids at our house but our granddaughter attends kindergarten now and we didn’t want her to miss any school. Good attendance is very important and it starts at the very beginning.
It is also Judah’s birthday week so we delivered the new tractor to him. He rides it every day, especially over to the church to water the vegetable garden our daughter has planted there. He also rides it several times a day around the block to check on the equipment yard that is on the next street. Yesterday we watched a fellow load up a large lift on a truck. After he finished, he came around and saw Judah sitting there, on his tractor, watching.
“You’ve got a John Deere. Cool.”
Judah was pretty pleased. The equipment yard has John Deere equipment though nothing quite like his tractor.
The weather here is HOT. Just as hot as in Fresno. On Friday the temperature was 95 in Fresno, 93 in San Mateo. However, there is NO air conditioning in the kids’ house. I decided we were going out to eat because I didn’t want to cook in the hot house. Pizza and ice cream sounded like a good idea for Judah’s birthday celebration.
Today we are staying inside with all the fans running, sitting very still, each one of us on our own device. Judah has cartoons on my iPhone, Leeya is watching Terry’s tablet, Terry and I are each working with our respective laptop. The electronic family.
