Just visiting, thanks… Day 557 25MAY10

The day started off with Joshua's teacher and school. He was struggling today to stay focused and get work done, looked like a pretty foggy day for him. He didn't do as good as he has been doing on spelling but has been struggling all week. After school was finally over we had some lunch and then headed in to Tampa for lots of different stops.

First stop was at the Children's Hospital to visit Ania and Wojtek and take them some home made bigos and a loaf of bread that Renee baked this morning. Wojtek and Joshua had a good time riding around the floor on big wheels and hanging out. We hope he gets better and can get out as soon as possible.

Second stop was the Children's Cancer Center for tutoring. Joshua did reading and did pretty good although his retention was a little spotty. While he was working on reading we took JArrod over to my Dad's house to help him work on the sprinkler project the two of them started earlier in the week. Jarod did a great job and the sprinklers he put in worked exactly as planned. Renee left and brought Joshua back for some lasagna and a little visit.

As we were headed home Renee's car all of a sudden started making a terrible racket. We pulled over on the side of the interstate only to discover her serpentine belt was coming apart in chunks. I took a quick look and decided we would try and limp home stopping on the way to get a new belt. As soon as we got home I changed out the belt and it works fine now. Not sure what is going on with all the mechanic work lately as I spent the morning putting Jim's boat engine back together. Hope this finishes all the work for now.

It was a busy day but we managed to get a lot done and spend time together which is what it is really all about.
