Almost every Thursday at school is show and tell day! Trevor really looks forward to this because he loves to see what everyone brings and also what they say about what he brings. So today he brought something special. He brought a newspaper clipping that was in the Hendricks Pioneer last week. It is a picture of him and grandpa Dirk fishing at the fishing derby!
It is kind of hard to read because I scanned it but you at least get the idea!

You gotta love moments like this!!
Trevor: Mom, what is work?
Me: Well it is when I do stuff for someone and then they give me money for doing it.
Trevor: Oh, you mean money to buy me trucks at the store?
Trevor: I love when you work mom!

I am falling behind on my blogging and it is 1 of 2 things, the first is that some days I just do not have enough times and other days I just do not have a lot to talk about. So last Thursday night Jon, Trevor, my dad and myself went to the boys SDSU basketball game and we had a great time. For me working at SDSU and getting free tickets we sure do not go enough! Trevor was great the whole game and most of all loved the hot dog my dad bought him, can you tell?
Then this past weekend we traveled to the Cities with Diane and Dennis to visit Jennifer, Chris and Jack. Diane and Jack had a birthday last week so we went to celebrate February birthdays and of course got some shopping in at the Mall of America. They had a deal where if you spent $150 dollars anywhere in the mall then you got a FREE unlimited wristband to go on rides and Trevor loved it! The lines where long since everyone probably had the wristband but he still had a great time!!

Can you tell Trevor takes his job seriously?
During this whole project Trevor really needed to listen to Jon and at times it was tough and he got a little pouty and the one time I was done there Trevor did not like Jon's instructions so he went and stood in the corner. I went over to him and said Trevor you better help daddy he really needs you and then Jon said the same, Trevor came around the corner and said "I am not done pouting yet" Jon and I about lost it!!!

Today I would like to wish my mother-in-law Diane a very HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!! I was going to post some older pictures but thought I would be nice and post this one of her, Jon and Dennis. This picture was taken 2 years ago at the big party we had for them in Ivanhoe. We hope you have a good day!!!!

Today he is home because last night we tore up the whole floor from the laundry room to the downstairs bathroom including the bathroom floor. Oh my gosh what a mess!!! He is at home as we speak putting all new piping in and then filling the floor back in with dirt and then we will pour concrete back over the top. After that is done we will have to retile the laundry room floor along with new carpeting throughout the basement. Oh yeah and replace everything in the downstairs bathroom (toilet, sink etc) since we are doing this Jon is going to redo the floor plan in that bathroom because you could hardly move in there, when we are done it is going to look awesome!!
The once perfect laundry room floor.
The hallway in the basement through the closet, all carpet is torn up and thrown away.
The wonderful bathroom!
It is a darn good thing Jon knows how to do all of this because otherwise it would of been $2,000-$5,000 to fix. Instead it is costing us around $100 for the supplies and the labor is FREE!
Jon just called to inform he that the pipe was actually broken completely in half!!! So if we would of waited any longer we would of been in trouble!
