Missions Celebration Big Valley Grace -- 2006
Sunday-Tuesday, May 1-3, 2005
cleaned the back yard. Monday, the first flower on my Hibiscus plant
opened up in full bloom toady. Tuesday, started parenting classes
tonight. Temperature was in the high 80s.
Friday-Saunday, May 6-8, 2005
had the worst class I've seen in 15 years! Kids were wild and
completely out of control. Several teachers, three or four campus
security and two armed police officers, came to the class! Saturday,
Dara and I worked on cleaning the back yard. We borrowed a pressure
cleaner from Tim. Got the patio, and front all cleaned up. Talked with
great-great aunt Ruth. Benny got to chat with his great-great-great
aunt Ruth. Sunday, heavy rain off and on.

the moon does not set! The comet Machholz is near the Big Dipper. Got
new inner tubes for Dara's scooter. Benny was fascinated with the
parrot inside the bike shop. The owner of the parrot had trained his
pet to shake feet! I've never heard of a parrot shaking feet. That is
unusual. The parrot jumped down to the floor and was chasing Benjamin!
Then the parrot owner picked up the parrot by its feet and put the
parrot on the shoulder of a lady in the store. The parrot was grabbing
small items on the counter, then climbed up the guy's shoulder and gave
the bill (paper money) to him! That was an amazing parrot indeed!!
When we got home, Dara and I worked on fixing the
tires on his old scooter. We put new the new inner tubes and new tires
on, then filled the tubes with green slime.

saw a picture of the funnel cloud that appeared close to north Modesto,
which was seen from Pelandale Road. The picture in the newspaper looked
just like a tornado!! There have been about a dozen tornadoes in
California this year. Usually, there are only about three tornadoes in
California each year.
Dara, Benny and daddy went swimming, then relaxed in
the spa. After swimming, we went to Subway for sandwiches, then off to
the Stockton Astronomical Society at Delta College. There were four
large telescopes for viewing the sky. We could see the rings of Saturn
very clearly. One of the telescopes was set on Jupiter. We could see
four of Jupiter's moons very clearly. All four of the moons were in a
straight line. I could also see the rings of Jupiter.
Saturday-Sunday, May 14-15, 2005
went swimming at InShape. Sunday, rained pretty good last night.
Tim took us to the swap meet in Ceres. We found a good bunk bed for the
boys. Will need some fixing, and Tim said he would help us with that.
Monday-Thursday, May 16-19, 2005
Benny went to Tyler's baseball game. He had a good time. Tuesday, Tyler
came over. They played video game for a couple hours. Wednesday, Dara,
Ben and daddy went swimming. Thursday, we all went swimming.
Saturday-Sunday, May 21-22, 2005
daddy, Ben and Dara went to the Modesto Air Show around 2:00 until
about 4:30. Watched the B-17 bomber take off and land. We got to climb
and walk through the B-17 bomber. The price for a 30 minute flight was
$400.00 per person!! The B-25 bombers had two engines, each one about
1800 cubic inches. The B-15 bombers could dive and reach over 300 mile
per hour. Cruising speed for the B-17s is around 150mph. Sunday,
upgraded to a new phone, the Motorola V551 GSM.
Spoke with mother. She told me about the terrible
experience with the Tri-Met bus. The bus never came. Several hours
later, Tri-Met sent out a lady in a taxi, who was very rude. The police
had to come and escort mother home. Weather today must be in the high
80s or low 90s.
Tyler and his sister came over to play with Benny.
They were playing with Benny's Legos. Tim came over to get the garbage
that needs to be hauled away, and gave us a weed eater.
Wednesday-Sunday, May 25-29, 2005
had to exchange my new phone, because it was shorting out. Friday, Tim
picked up Dara and Benjamin to help him with some work. Dara mowed the
lawn and Benjamin helped clean. Tim has been drawing up blueprints for
remodeling a friend's home. Saturday, had lots of chores today. The
boys are playing video games next door with Thomas.
Sunday, called uncle John. Yesterday was Dan's
birthday. He was at uncle John's with his fianceé. Cousin Jim
was there too. Dan is getting married October 21, 2005. Spoke with Jim
