So much has happened

Ryan graduated, and had a couple interviews, no jobs.  Then a friend. who worked for D!, recommended him.  He interviewed with  D.  He got an internship for 6 months! God is good! We are praying this will lead into a full time job.  We helped move them from the Bay Area down to Glendale, CA.  Lots of driving in the two weekends we did it in.  They had been packing and cleaning ahead of time.  God is good, they found a small apartment, 720  sq. feet, that allows dogs.  It is within walking distance of shopping and 10 minutes from the studio Ryan is at. 
With all the driving back and forth, more so for them, we are thankful to God that his battery didn't die until after the move. (He needed to get a new battery)  It would have been awful to have the truck die going over the grapevine, loaded and pulling a trailer. 

A couple weeks earlier, we were able to enjoy a visit with our daughter and grandchildren.  Unfortunately they were here during a heat spell.
 We enjoyed some boating, 2 different days.
 Making smores.  I have to admit that making smores on a really hot evening is interesting.  The chocolate melted on the plate and I had to scoop it with a graham cracker for the smores.  We had fun anyway.
 The grandkids got to do some fireworks, for the first time.  I guess they are not allowed in Colorado where they live.  They usually have gone to an event to see the fireworks. They left the 5th , and I wanted to cry as I dropped them off at the airport. But, we'll see them again, next week.

Lily has a home

We've had fun fostering the kittens, but our turn will be over this week.  We've not been able to find homes for all the kittens, nor shelters to take them.  Our oldest son and his girlfriend will be fostering them for a little while, they they will be going to a shelter in Santa Cruz.  Their vet knows a lady who has a rescue place they will go to.  The little tabby, Tiger Lily (Lily for short) has a home. Our youngest son and his wife will be taking her. They will be picking her up in a few days. In the meantime we've started her vaccinations and she will have a vet checkup tomorrow. She will be going home to two larger cats (brothers) about 3 years old and a German Shepard.  She will lead a good life.

Fostering kittens

Around 11 days ago we found 2 little kittens on our patio.  In the next 4 days we collected all 5 of the kittens in the litter.  They were born in a shed in the corner of our yard.  We have not seen the mom.  The kittens are now around 8 weeks old.  They were very hissy and would swat at us at first, now they are very loving.  We bathed them (to de-flea them) the water was very dirty, they didn't like it, and we  will do so again. We will change the bedding and wash it (again).We are fostering them until we can fine them homes.  Non of the shelters around here will take them. One shelter has offered to help us find homes for them.  The local animal control shelter told us to let them go! Unbelievable!!  There are 4 blacks and 1 tabby.  The tabby and 1 black are female, 3 male blacks. They will be going to my oldest son and his girlfriend for fostering, then on to a shelter in Santa Cruz.  Our youngest son and his wife may (or not) take the little tabby.  They are fun to watch, hold and play with.  They have turned our front bathroom into a nursery that I need to clean a couple (or more) times a day. They have a better chance at life now then they would have as strays.  I'd love to give them to someone with a loving home. They are so much fun to watch playing.
