I took the Sony in for repairs on Friday afternoon and was able to pick it up on Monday evening. Now that's service. The hard drive in it was toast and it is has been replaced. When it dies again I think the Sony will be retired. I figured it was cheaper to repair this one than to buy the kids anew one in few years when they will need for school. It will manage their work just fine for a while.
The moral of the story is I am up and running and I have so much to catch you up on that I made a list. You know how I love lists.
These are fun pictures of the kids (all four of them) from the weekend the Barking Cows went camping. That weekend was very hot, when played our game on Saturday afternoon it was 37C (I think that is around 95-100 F) but I am to lazy to look it up now.
That Sunday was slightly overcast, and it cooled off to a whooping 35C by the time we got back into town. The first thing we did (after the root beer floats at A&W) was come home to play in the water. Here are the kids on Spiderman Slip 'n' Slide. (Doesn't that just take you back to elementry school or is just me?)
And last but not least: The Biggest Kid.
