Miracles indeed...

My refrigerator disaster turned into a blessing. It seems that the compressor is bad and has to be replaced. That would be a $700 part. Ouch. Its usually best to just get a new fridge. But as it turns out our 5 year warranty is still good for 3 more months.

We had to pay $132 and Allen (my BFF appliance guy) told me that it will make the fridge last for about 5-7 more years. He also said that compressors usually have this knack for going out between 5-6 year old.

Blessed indeed.

All of my fears about the summer were in vain - as of now. We have a nice routine and the boys have been terrific! Each morning they clean their playroom and room and they are even cooperating about it. Caleb seems to have finally started to grasp that good behavior means rewards. I'm glad I didn't give up on the marbles because it seems to really be working right now.

Each day as Becks gets a little bit older he gets more and more fun. I'm so excited for next week when we will be off of swimming lessons and can all play and get settled into our routine of summer days and next weekend is more CAMPING!

Wow, I have been off the blogging circut for a while, I had 3 blogs to read today. I'm so glad you get little Miracles too. They really are miracles you know. Heavenly father really does know us and what we need at just the right moment. He loves us.
