So today my younger sister Lexus and I went to the commissary on the base that's close to here. She stayed home from school because her new braces were giving her unbearable pain. I felt so bad! Anyway, I always love when we get to do things together as sisters :) I love the 10 year age gap because she truly looks up to me and we have so much fun together! In a way its like having my own child but I can give her back at the end of the day! She truly enjoys going grocery shopping with me and often times helps me pick out things for myself or even what to send to Eric. We always have a blast!

The point of this blog wasn't really to talk about Lex but oh well!! Love you lucy :) (She reads this all the time!!) It was to say how shocked I was while driving back home!! The people in California never cease to amaze me that is for darn sure! This is what I saw... Two boys, aged probably like 3 and 6 or 7, hauling ass down a very busy street. No shoes, no shirts, no helmets and NO PARENTS IN SIGHT!! I about pulled over my car and told them to go home. I also wanted to find the parents of those boys and give them a talking to. I know that doesn't only happen here in California, it happens everywhere. I can stand seeing children who have parents that don't care about their safety and well being! In my opinion its one thing to let your children ride a certain distance alone but while being safe. Anyway that's my rant and I was just so annoyed by it!

That is so annoying. I never used to notice unattended kids, but lately...oy, don't even get me started!

I have a close relationship with my younger sister (6 years my JR.), and I absolutely love doing things with her. I think she was the hardest to leave when we finally got our first duty station. I've even gone so far as to purchase her a plane ticket out for her Spring Break. We're going to Disney and I can't wait!
