Blue car sick bags, great to have for road trips and in 1st aid kits

No one wants to think about having to clean up after someone has gotten car sick in your vehicle.  It is awful! Not one of the pleasures of travel. So this summer, do yourself a favor and grab some of these. They have saved us multiple times from a messy situation! It is so nice to just be able to pull over and throw the mess away instead of cleaning it out of clothing, car seats and having to ride with the smell. They are also great at home when someone is sick. No more rinsing out bowls or worrying that they won’t get to the bathroom on time. Package comes with 24 and includes shipping.

Johann leaving

42 days has flown by… Johann made our house a happier, brighter place.  I have to admit we are all pretty sad to let him go. Part of me wanted to hide his passport so he would have to stay forever.  I hope he knows how much we love him, and what a joy he was to have in our home.  Next summer his younger brother will come to spend the summer with us, I am sure we will love him too.  But a little part of my heart now lives in France, cant wait to we see him again!

Johann family photoOur final weekend with Johann he went on an overnight camp out with the scouts from our church.  They slept in tents, ate food over the fire, acted like boys and played on the water.  The kids and I all watched the clock and eagerly awaited his return.  Funny how in just 6 weeks he has become a family member.  One of my favorite movies is The Blind Side, a story of a family that took in a teen boy and soon loved him like their own son.    That is totally how we feel, our house if going to feel pretty empty without him and his adorable personality.

johann football

Johann wanted to watch an american football game. So  Granny and Papa him to the BSU scrimmage on the blue field.  Matt had to work that night, and I was not up to taking 5 kids plus a new baby to a football game.  I know the blue field is not the standard football field, but that is how we do it here in Boise Idaho…lol.

Johann with the big yellow school bus, #SchoolBus

Johann was telling us that the BIG YELLOW SCHOOL BUS is very much a symbol of America.  When French people think of schools in the USA, they think of the yellow bus. I guess I had never thought of our yellow bus’s being so unique but I guess he is right you don’t really find them other places.

So on the first day of school he had to run out and meet the kids as they go off the bus, and snap a quick picture.

Johann golden corral

Johann just experienced Golden Corral…. He was shaking his head the whole time we where there. He said he is now a chunky monkey like baby Madilyn …. And the chocolate fountains, well those are just crazy.  But notice he did leave with a cotton candy in hand, smiling ear to ear!
