Raindrop Get Well

Good morning, Friends! It's Monday once again. And it is the last week of July! Wow! Nick starts his conditioning camp for soccer and then practice starts next week! As I told my friend, the "crazy" starts all up again! But the boys will need to be getting ready as they have a tournament in three weeks. And right after we get back from that, school starts! I do want to tell you all (cause I know that you love to hear all about my life), Nick got up early and went to work for nearly two weeks with Pat and also did a LOT of work around here to earn money. He wanted to buy a unicycle. Well, Saturday he had earned enough to buy one. So we went to The Bike Shop and let him get it. Of course he needed to learn to ride it but he stuck with it the rest of Saturday night, and all day yesterday and by the end of the day he had pretty much learned how to get up on it (without supports) and ride it quite a ways! We were so proud of him for how hard he worked to buy it and then to learn to ride it! Now I just hope and pray that the same motivation will carry on to and through school!

Today's card is one that I made up a week ago (or so). I had been wanting to figure out how to use the raindrop image from the My Friend set and this is what I finally came up with. I guess it turned out o.k. Thanks for stopping by to take a look! Have a super day!

  1. Our son wanted a unicycle when he was 13. We made his sleep overnight on the decision and pay half of the cost. We agreed to reimburse him his half after he learned to ride the thing. It didn't take him long and his first major outing was riding in the July 4 parade wearing a clown's outfit. He won a prize and later went on to ride one of the tall giraffe unicycles. He had a lot of fun with both. Go Nick!
