Piano Tuning

We got our piano tuned and the key pads replaced.  I warned them that they'd probably find lots of guitar picks (I know I've bought at least 30 in the past) while they were in there.  They found 22 plus money and bingo chips.  The piano sounds nice, and will for two weeks if we're lucky, it's a lemon piano, but two of the notes mute when we play them so they'll have to come back and fix those for me.

Mike has started his blueberry picking.  He has some for each set of parents plus one more pail.  Tracy, Emily, and Aaron went out with a friend and got two more pails so we sent one home with our friend.  I get the "fun" job of sorting through them, and they were almost clean-picked.  Here is a pile Laura was sorting.

Shelly's Birthday

I celebrated my birthday at the end of July while Tracy, Emily, and Melissa were at camp and Aaron was at work and then a friend's house.  I made some cinnamon rolls and put David's old "4" candle on the cake as I have hit my 40's.  I received 7 cards in the mail plus an e-card and LOTS of Facebook greetings.

AWANA hair night

In Truth and Training (Emily and Melissa,) they had a hair night where there were prizes for the most beautiful, most things, most colorful, and most creative hair-dos.  In Sparks (Laura) they had a fancy night.  I took the girls in and had their hair done.  Here are the end results.  Emily and Melissa both won prizes for their categories.
