Family From Oregon

Steven's sister and her husband and their two kids drove down from Oregon yesterday and are currently staying with Steven's mom. Today we drove up to his mom's house and spent the entire day hanging out, visiting, and conducting light saber battles.

When it was discovered that we would have two girls and no boy, Steven had a goal of getting our girls to love Star Wars, and boy do they! We have 4-5 light sabers in this house, Jedi cloaks, Darth Vadar masks, and Princess Leia honey buns. The girls love Star Wars. But really, they were no match when it came to cousin Ryan's knowledge and love for Star Wars. He can make light saber noises with his mouth! And very good ones at that!!! We're going to Disneyland on Tuesday and we're all very hopeful that Ryan will be chosen for the Jedi Training Academy and ultimately fight against Darth Vadar or Darth Maul. Uncle Steven led the kids in training today in preparation for Tuesday. A battle commenced following the session. LOL The four kids had sooo much fun playing together all day long, in and out, to the front yard to the back. They got along great and are looking forward to spending more time together. It'll be fun on Tuesday to be their official Tour Guides at Disneyland!

Of course girls can love Star Wars! You forget that Princess Leah was quite the heroine. From the look of those happy faces - they had a great time.

I, too, am thankful for the internet. It has brought a whole new world of learning to me and also a creativity that I so enjoy. I meet cyber-friends and get to spend time with some of the nicest people - just like you☺
