I love our exit off the interstate. We pass it at least twice a day. It has 2 truck stops, a construction site, a place that sells boats, and amazingly like a cement making place where there are always cement trucks spinning and dump trucks dumping. Now for those of you who haven't been here to Knoxville it isn't in the boonies. It's across the interstate from the biggest shopping area basically in town, Turkey Creek. It's just an effect of the urban sprawl. So Jackson loves to point out everything he sees so it becomes a very happy, exciting point of the trek home. So imagine my delight when slightly farther down the road we get stopped a by a police man, holding a sign, lights flashing on the car to direct traffic for the electrical truck who had two men up in a bucket fixing the wires. Oh I could hardly contain myself with such a find. Jackson on the other hand couldn't be urged to look right and missed the whole thing. oh well. At least I saw it right?
Oh and I would have put up a random picture of a truck but I don't know how to get pictures off the internet. sorry.

Jacob would have looked your way and told you not only wwwwwwhat kind of truck that was but how many tires it had but what the weight capacity was and how high it could reach. No worries about Jackson not looking he probably saw a cement truck on the other side and determining what the water to dirt(i don't know how to make cement) ratio is needed to proper make a firm foundation. He is Brent's son. Maybe you missed the actual good stuff ;)

Okay, so I have a proposition. There is this really cool basic sewing class offered on Mondays at Gina Bernina's with this lady, Mary. I've met her and loooove her. There's one class that I went ahead and signed up for that I thought you might be interested in. It's where you make an apron that ties under the bust line instead of around the waist. It's fifteen dollars. Interested? I wondered if you would want to do it together!
