Did you know?

Did you know that a hiking stick should be taller than you? This fact comes from eavesdropping on some dude with his kids on our hike last weekend. It makes sense when I think about it, so I'm taking as fact. *Nevermind I just looked it up and really it should be 6-9 inches above your elbow. So, if you're Thomas that's taller than you, but if you're me it isn't.

Did you know that I sprained my ankle when I was in first grade jumping on the trampoline in my "Sunday socks" (which, of course, are exceptionally slippery)? Actually it was all my sister's fault (as most things are) because she bounced me and I landed in the springs. I hopped around on one foot for weeks.

Did you know that there are places in the world where it never gets this hot? "So why don't you move there and stop whining?" you ask? Well, because I like it here. I just hate the first couple of weeks of summer where they smack you in the face with suffocating heat and make you want to cry every day. After a while I'll be singing praises to barbecues, food, gardens, swimming, hiking and camping. But right now I'm just trying to catch my breathe in my 85 DEGREE house at 10pm.

Did you know that they closed I-15 in American Fork tonight? Yeah, that was because they are pushing over 2,000 TONS of bridge into place. 2,000 TONS. Listen, I've had some heavier moments in my life...but I've never required even one of the four mammoths they have to use to move that thing. Just sayin' "more mobile than a bridge" is probably something that will go on the next version of my resume.

Did you know that Thomas did a bit better in church today? Of course I had him during the 3rd hour, and we wandered the halls for a good chunk of that time, but he did not scream.....I'll take it.

  1. Dude. Sometimes our house is like 100 degrees. Yeah. Inside. We are totally looking forward to this 85 degree weather. I think it will feel like February? It will be nice. :)

    Congratulations on the non-screaming church-baby. :)
