Yesterdays happenings:

I never thought that 85 degrees could feel so good, but living in Vegas you take anything in the double digits. Bella and I went to the park for a walk and it seriously felt SO nice! The only thing missing was a good book to read while sitting under the shade.

We got home and I was determined to get all the laundry done and clean the upstairs.  I accomplished most of it, but got a little distracted looking through some of Matt's old crap school stuff.  He LOVES to hang on to every little thing which is so opposite of me (I just keep the important stuff, not my 7th grade essay on Robin Hood).  And then I stumbled upon these:

That's right. Love notes from 1997 that Matt has no idea where they came from, haha.  So funny to read... "When is your birthday? Will you be 16 or 17?" and "How many brothers and sisters do you have?". Talk about a boring love letter! I hope teenagers still handwrite notes instead of solely texts.  That was just too much fun!

Matt's aunt was in town along with a friend- he took them both for a helicopter ride.  They came over later and it was fun talking with them both. Before bed, we just had to read a few more papers that Matt had written back in junior high.  One of them was how Tom Sawyer and him were exactly alike in that they both hated school.  It was pretty funny and so true.  Every time I mention the word "essay" or "paper", Matt cringes as if it's his assignment.

I'll let you read this one.  Matt has told me this classic story before and I'll have to take this as proof that it really happened ;)

  1. Oh my lands, what a naughty little boy! Haha.

  2. Oh my gosh this is so Matt and pretty much our entire childhood with him and Bart thinking up every trick they could play on us!
