April returned safe and sound from the PYT late Sun.night/Mon. morning, and says she had a blast:)

Over 4,400 young people were there!!

and if you click on the "Latest News" link at the top, there's a drop down menu with stories about the various things they did.

The rest of this week, and again for a week in August, she's helping out with the music at a local camp for foster children

 
which she also did last year, and really enjoyed doing.
 
Tony had a good time on his camping trip, and I had the experience while both of them were gone of being (briefly) scared to death on the one night I was home from work. I had just started to drift off to sleep when I heard some banging noises, and of course my first thought was 'oh heavens, I'm here by myself and someone is breaking in the house!"
 
I went to the top of the stairs and realized the noise was Tiger kitty
throwing herself kamikaze style at the sliding glass door, hissing and yowling.
 
(and why she didn't knock herself out, I'll never understand,lol)
 
Realizing that there must be 'something' on the back deck, I came down and flipped on the light and a stray yellow cat looked back at me. (Tiger continuing to go crazy this whole time.) I said "hey! get out of here!" and the stray gave me a smirking sort of look and Slowly, one paw at a time, started moving towards the edge of the deck....as if to say "Nyahh,nyahh, Ok, I'll go....but only because I want to!"
 
Sheesh.....cats.

Son Kyle is getting ready to move to a new apt,and will be taking back the bed and dresser that he left here for April to use, when he was living in the furnished place. I should be cleaning out the dresser right now,lol, And doing about 20 other things...but, you see where I am:)
April has suggested that before we move her old bed and dresser to her room, we paint it. Which I guess means we'll Really be 'watching paint dry' around here soon. (Sorry....just couldn't help myself:)
 
I easily earned the 'Best Mom in the World" title yesterday from April, by purchasing the latest Harry Potter book and saying She could read it first. Hope she reads fast!! I'm itching to read it,too!
 
And that's all the latest from here in the 'Burg. Hope everyone is doing well, and have a great weekend!
