Campaigning


My little brother decided to run for Metro Council in our city. I can't even believe it because he's just my little brother to me. I must be getting really old!!

Bryce and I went with a group of people Saturday morning to campaign. We were assigned a couple of streets to go and knock on their doors. I can't tell you how much I was dreading doing this. Richard couldn't come because he had somewhere else to be with the other boys. I hate it when people come and knock on my door like that, so I was not looking forward to it. A bird even pooped on my shoulder before I made it to the 2nd house! (If it had been the hair, I would have been done!) But to my surprise, I really liked it! I met some really neat people. One lady had just become a US citizen! I think the most impressive was an 80 year old woman who got rid of a wasps nest by her door with her bare hands! Bryce and I were very impressed (as we were running away!!) She said, "Honey, when you raise 5 kids, you learn to do what has to be done." How sweet is that? I will definitely be more open to others when they come to my door now.

I wish I had a picture of me and Bryce. Next time, I'll make sure to do that!


Lucy is with her forever family! Dawn and her husband are in China now, and got their little girl while we were sleeping last night! Congratulations Dawn!!

There is a huge golf tournament today, so Braden made sure we woke him up early so he could start selling. They are so cute out there. I guess I'm the lemonade maker again today!
