Ben's first day of pre-school~!

The day has arrived, Ben is at Springville School. He said he had a great time~! When the music plays that is time to pick up and put things away. This reminds me of when my children went to school for the first time. only there was no pre-school back then.. (60's -70's) They went to Kindergarden.
Yesterday I picked him and up at Donna's and we went swimming at Holly's house. He loved it.. Tracie met us there. She was so excited~! She passed her boards for Massage Therapy...Her test was in Iowa City at 3:30. She said it was 2 1/2 hours long and 125 questions.. She said it was really hard and when she got done she was exhausted. When they told her she passed she said what a load was taken off her. It costs a lot of money to take your boards.. I think she said $400. She has a place for her business and she starts Sept. 1st.. Yeah~!~! No more night school for her now she just gets to do what she loves doing. Massaging.. She has learned so much in the last 10 months.
This morning at 5 a.m. I could hear thunder and see lightening coming from the West. It was a good one.. loud and bright. When I got up at 8 I looked at the rain gauge and it said 3 inches.. and it was still pouring. 9 a.m. it got so dark outside I turned the lights on in the house. Another downpour and I checked the rain gauge and goodness to be another inch.. 4 inches of much needed rain was wonderful...My vegetable garden and flower garden look soo good.. Not so stressed out~! The grass has turned back to green and the robins are thankful they can get to the worms again.. Amazing what a little moisture can do to the earth. The little birds are dancing in the bird bath ~ looks like they are celebrating.
All is well on Whittier Road for right now.. The sun is shining , it's 75 degrees with not much humidity and receiving God's blessing ~!
Have a Tiggeriffic Day~ ta ta for now from Iowa:)
