I wonder how many times this makes?

About 10 days before we reached home, we noticed the inevitable, but unavoidable, line in the windshield: yes, a crack. We watched as the crack spread day by day, through the driver’s windshield. It seems every trip a new windshield is in order! This past week, the guys replaced it.

It was a cool, cloudy morning.
Ready with the new one.

The guys had a hard time placing this one, because the stubborn edge just didn’t want to go into the casing. Good news, they finally got it. Bad news? A new crack appeared a couple of days after we replaced it. Our guess is it was a manufacturing defect. We’ve been told that even a slight edge chip can turn into a crack. I guess another windshield replacement will be in order this week.

Nieces are Great

We often make fresh tortillas each Sunday, and today, Abby helped us near the end. It’s been many weeks since she’s helped (since we’ve been gone), and she is an enthusiastic helper.

Little Bethany is as cute as can be. Yes, I’m sure we’re biased, but who can help that?
