Here are prom photos of Matthew and Whitney (Blue dress) and Ann-Nika (orange dress) and Zach

Rainy Saturday

It is raining in Iowa. Tonight was to be the practice night at Knoxville Raceway
It is also prom night for several schools in the area.
We will take photos of Ann-Nika and I can post one later.
I am bummed about no races. I work in the concession stand. It's a fun summer job.
Well back to cleaning.

Stress of a Prom Dress

A friend called me and asked if I would shorten her neighbor's prom dress. I have never done this at all. So I was stressed, but prom is tomorrow night. So..................I called Mom and asked if she could help me. We are done, but I am still nervous. I can't wait for her to try it on to make sure that it fits ok. The dress probably was around $400. I remember seeing one nearly like it when Ann-Nika and I were looking for hers.
Thank the good Lord for Mom. I would have never been able to get it done without her help.

April 5

Yuky day in Iowa today. We here in Southern Iowa missed the snow, thankfully.
Yesterday we went to the Neal Smith Wildlife Preserve ( They have an area set aside to preserve the prairie. They have buffalo and elk. We were lucky to be there at the right time to see both the elk and the buffalo. We had Ann-Nika with us as well as another German student.
We also went to the Iowa Historical Museum and the IMAX theater. It was a very nice day. The girls enjoyed their day also.
Back to work tomorrow. But it's just a 3 day week as we have Good Friday as a holiday and I have to take my "extra" day off also. Hopefully the weather will warm up.
Friday I was able to get through my closets and get some other cleaning done. I did more last night after we got home and again some today. If I am lucky I will have the whole house gone through for my "spring" cleaning.
Well off to get around for work tomorrow.
Take care everyone.
