Flight Risk

On Teusday Morning Corey somehow got out of the house and walked to the neighbor's house. I woke up in the morning at about 6:30. I walked up the stairs to get in the shower and found the garage doors wide open. I knew it couldn't have been Devin becasue he was still in bed. I ran to check on Corey and realized that he wasn't in his bed. Of course I freaked out and started frantically searhing for him. I was looking outside and then went back in the house with the thought that he could have been curled up in a nook somewhere and fell asleep. Then I heard a knock on the door. One of our neighbors was standing there holding Corey's hand. He asked me "Is this your kid?" I was nearly ecstatic and said yes. Of course the neighbor wanted to make sure that Corey was indeed at the right house, so he asked him "Is this your mom?" and Corey's response was "Yep." The neighbor left Corey with me and walked back to his house. A few minutes later He was knocking on the door again. He informed me that Corey had gotten to his house areound 1:00am, opened the front door and walked in and then ofund an empty bed and slept the rest of the night there. The neighbor's son got home from a date at about 1:00 and was in the bathroom brushing his teeth. Corey walked in and said hi. The guy just assumed that his parents were watching Corey for someone although he had never seen Corey before. He took Corey and laid him down and he went to bed. The neighbor was getting ready for work the next morning and Corey wlaked up the stairs and said hi. He had no idea who Corey was and where he had come from. He walked Corey back outside and asked him if he knew where his house is. Thankfully Corey knows what our house looks like. I was ready to have a heart attack!!! He unlocked the deadbolt, reached up and opened the garage door, and walked a block away. Not only that, but he walked into a complete stranger's house and slept in someone's bed! AHHHH!All I can say is that he is deffinately his father's son!

It's been a while.

Well, it has been a while since I have posted, so here is some catch-up info.
I went to Arizona...but I didn't fly. There was some last minute changes in the plan. Devin, Corey and I hopped in the truck and drove. It was a very long drive going there and even longer going home. We had so much fun! It was great to see everyone. Rick and Sharon were kind enough to let us stay at their house. They are great! My grandparents (Grandma Glenna and Walter and my Good grandparents) all came from Mesa to suprise us. It was so wonderful to see them. Poor Grandma Glenna took a spill in my parent's garage, so she spent some time in the hospital, but she is doing good now. And Walter is so sweet and he is great with Grandma and fits right into the family. We got to play a card game with them and I discovered he can't lie! We played BS, which is all about lying and getting away with it. Grandpa couldn't lie without feeling guilty and taking his cards back, hilarious! I had the pleasure of helping Megan and Grandma Good do their nails, and Kate begged to have hers done too, so we painted them instead of the french tips. Kate and Corey have a love-hate relationship. They were so fun to watch together. Dad had Lasik done on his eyes, so he can see better now. I just felt bad for him because I know he was hurting but he never says anything. What an amazing example of patience! Devin and Rick went to Luna and picked up the Jeep that Grandma Reynolds gave to Devin. It is a really cool CJ2A that belonged to Devin's great grandfather and then to his grandfather Lamar Reynolds. It has turned out to be a wonderful heirloom!
After we got home our families were evacuated due to the Wallow Fire being close to Round Valley. The fire also went through Luna, so it was a good thing that we picked up the Jeep when we did, otherwise it probably would have been lost in the fire. Thankfully neither my parents nor Rick and Sharon lost anything in the fire. There is a lot of smoke damage, so they will probably need to have their houses cleaned so that they don't smell like smokers. I am so glad that everyone was able to get out okay and that none of their property was damaged. It was pretty scary for a few days.
Devin is almost done with his first internship and has one more after this. That should last another eight weeks and then he is done with school. In December he can take his certification exam through the state. Yay for almost being done with school! I am so proud of him, he has gone so far! Now, if I could just finish mine...but that is a seperate issue.
Anyway, that is all I have for now. I hope you all have a happy day!
