The car dealership called this morning to say Dale's new car was ready to be picked up today instead of Monday. This was very happy news since Dale's old car is a lump of useless metal stuck in our parking spot, waiting for Teen Challenge to come drag it away. We drove the new car to my parents' house tonight and it lived up to all of Dale's hopes and dreams. There is one small glitch to be worked out before we can fully register it, so Dale has to take it back to the dealership Monday morning and they'll have a loaner car for him to take to work.
My mom made us soup and fresh bread and rhubarb cake for supper, which was delicious. I hope no one is tired of zip line photos because it's just the beginning of a whole new zip line season. My dad continues to make adjustments to it; now there's a little seat instead of just a bar to sit on, and a little buffer at the end of the line in case someone fails to use the brakes.
Spencer finally got to use the archery set he got for Christmas. All three kids are going to my parents' next weekend while Dale and I are away, so there will be lots of time for zip lining and archery and everything else they love to do.
