A Visit

My precious baby brother drove the 3 hours here with his fiance for a fleeting visit on the weekend. The purpose of the fleeting visit? To have look at our very cheap second car we were so blessed to acquire recently. We have survived on one car our whole married life so far, but just needed this extra set of wheels now that our little family has grown so much, and life is so very full at times. It was the right time. Have I mentioned my super wonderful brother is a mechanic?

It was very very early Saturday morning when he headed out - the sun was just creeping over the hill. And who was close on his heels? Fresh from sleep, cereal eaten, gumboots on?

Why William, his little nephew apprentice, of course. :)

Michael showed enormous patience, getting Will involved every step of the way. I wish we lived closer. There's nothing quite like spending time with family, is there?

Praising God for wonderful family, and a great second car which is running smoothly!

Hoorah! Yay for a great second car granting you guys that extra bit of freedom :) Will looks pretty happy too :D

My husband is a mechanic - a most useful occupation. I always feel that little bit more secure when out on the road and he has come to my rescue on a number of occasions. We used to be a one car family but in recent years my husband has had the blessing of a work vehicle.These days it's an 8 seater van that is needed for our family (teenage son has his own car now!) and to think I used to drive to the grocery store in our sporty little Subaru impreza - those days are long gone!

What a very helpful brother you have. Good to see Will so happy to help!

What a nice brother! Every child needs an uncle to adore!

Thanks for your comment on my blog. Yes, our visit with my niece was bittersweet. But that little babe. Such a cutie. We are all ready to dote on her and maybe Mike will be the subject of her uncle adoration once day soon.
