lucky us!

This picture has nothing to do with the rest of the post..... I just liked it.
Yesterday morning started off with a bang. Actually, it started off with a dead battery in the Miata while Rob was on the freeway. I quickly canceled all our therapies and called Joel's school to let them know he would be missing the bus Then the kids and I jumped in the car, still in our jammies, and ran to rescue Rob. We found him at  Circle K and drove him to work, then hurried back home to change out of our pjs before it hit noon. At 12:30 it was time for speech therapy and then time to pick up Rob in Scottsdale around 3 pm. Then it was time to head back to the gas station and find a way to get the darn car to a mechanic, who was across town. After we dropped off the Miata at the mechanic, Rob and Charlotte got dropped of at the house around 5. Joel and I then headed to a therapy meeting that lasted until about 8 pm.

But. Good news for us, the parts that need to be repaired are all under warranty, resulting in a very small charge. Pretty good news, as I was expecting having to dump about eight hundred dollars into this car. Hurray for good luck! Yesterday was also a great day for potty training, and Joel got a new stuffed animal to add to his sea creature collection. Love that kid!
