Life without a computer!

Last week our computer was having difficulties and being the illiterate person I am (when it comes to computers) I didn't know what to do. It wouldn't even turn on. It was like it wasn't getting power, but all the cords were in the right place. Luckily, one of the kids in a Sunday School class that Brent and I taught was home for the weekend and came to work on it. It was really minor, but I wouldn't have known what to do (although, if it happens again, I now do.) Anyways, the whole point is: Do you realize how much you use your computer in a day. I had to balance my check book with the paper things they send in the mail. I had to pay my bills through the mail. No email, blogging, or my space. No getting a quick recipe, checking the weather, or any of the dozen other little things I do throughout the week on the computer. I wonder how we lived 10 years ago without computers, internet, cell phones, sidekicks and all the other tech we know use without a second thought. Maybe life would be easier:)!

Let's Go Fly a Kite!

Last weekend we bought a kite and have been waiting for the perfect day-today was the day. We had a lot of fun. Here are some pics.

Brent was the master kite flyer-he ran out of line!

200 feet out there!

Carson was all giggles.

Mailee had more fun with the stroller.

Getting the kite started!

It is a really pretty kite.

Everyone loves the slide.
