For the past 3 years Crystal has been on our homeowner's association, and for the past 2 years she was the board president. This month was her final month on the board, and her last hurrah, a community picnic, was this Saturday.

|Our police officers came and fitted about 100 kids with new bike helmets. The fire department brought the Safety House trailer and a fire truck, too. They were all very popular with the kids.|
While the whole three year board experience was a great learning opportunity, I am so glad it's over for her. I know Crystal is anxious to just go back to being part of the neighborhood, instead of worrying about all the delinquents and deadbeats that can suck the life energy right out of a volunteer. It's time to take a break and just annonymously sit on the patio every once in awhile. Soon we'll be able to walk the dog without getting stopped for complaints about a neighbor's dogs/kids/trash can/lawn ornament. Can't wait!
I'll be back later this week to wrap up my June kit. I have to say, we're working on getting ready for the July kits and it is definitely one of my favorite kits ever. I finished a few counterfeits for my kit yesterday, and I'm pretty excited about the whole thing. I'm having a hard time focusing on the end of June waiting to play with it!
