(I hope to find paint that will work to cover that gold :P)

Yesterday we were driving down our road and noticed the neighbors a mile or so up had a wood burning fireplace sitting out in anticipation for the garbage truck this morning. We drive past and on our way back out, I made Jason stop in spite of being headed for supper at my parents. We talked to the couple and they replaced this one with one big enough to heat their (very large) home. They said we could have it, and despite offering them something, they let us have it FREE. I insisted we go home for the trailer quick and grab it before supper, feeling like it would be gone if we waited...so thats what we did. On our way back towards their house, we were following a truck with the tail gate down, and I commented that they were probably going for it. Well...the slowed and drove on by, and we pulled up. They turned around and came back, asking if we were taking everything...and we said yes. Then they asked if we had talked to the owners, almost as if they thought we hadn't, that they would and then we'd have to forfeit our find. They were bummed, and we were sorry...but not sorry enough to offer them half :) So..we'll have nice cozy and CHEAPER than propane heat this winter. Bet that sounds great to everyone right about now as we all sit sweltering ;)

Le' Pool

Aaron took Elliot off the low dive, and came back to report. I didn't realize Elliot was a strong enough swimmer for that, but Aaron said "He did FINE!!" so I agreed to let him jump off the high dive if he wanted. He did, twice...and did excellent. He's afraid of heights, so I was really proud of him! (don't ask me about the underline, I have NO clue)
Elliot after his high dive "canon ball"...I'd say he's pretty pleased with himself :)
little brother was pretty proud of him as well :)

The 9th child was asleep behind the orange stroller on the left because her mom rocks and can get her to sleep at a pool :)
