Three little men and a mini-van

Auto detailing is the performance of an extremely thorough cleaning, polishing and waxing of an automobile, both inside and out, to produce a show-quality level of detail. It can be practiced for personal satisfaction, and it is also performed to prepare a car for car shows that feature the appearance of cars. Besides improving the appearance of cars, detailing helps to preserve the car, and thus, increases resale value, according to

For the past hour and a half, three of my sons and my husband have been “auto detailing” my 2001 Toyota Sienna, in our own front driveway.

Recreational Volleyball CHAMPS!

Tonight our sand volleyball team won our first play-off game (the other team forfeit – 😉 and then we took the championship game, playing past nine o’clock on a well-lit, cricket-mosquito-filled volleyball court!  Don’t shank a serve or you’ll have to run through the sticker-weeds BAREFOOT to get the ball!  We are the recreation (not “competitive” there’s a difference) league volleyball champions of North Platte…..and we each get a tank top.

On our team this summer were our friends, Pam, Renea, Katie, Shad, Mark, me, Jeff and Brittany.  We thank our children for cheering us on, whether laughing or crying or running onto our court, in our ridiculous, fun, over-competitive endeavor.

Go Serve-irons!

(Yeah, I submitted our team name as the “Serve-ivors” and we got listed as the “Serve-irons” and it stuck.)

Mommy, I know why we moved to North Platte

While driving to school this morning Aaron confidently informed me of the following:
