Well, despite the years passed I remember the day like it was yesterday. I got the call in the middle of the night that it was time. I rushed around the house and gathered some things to race to the hospital. I sat outside of the room with Wendy, both of us acutely listening through the crack in the door to our other sister inside. Then we heard it. The joyous first cry of life! Kathy and Jack had successfully created an amazing person, the first Grandchild of the family, Cassidy! Cassidy, when I held you for the first time I couldn´t believe how perfect and tiny you were! It was love at first sight! Wow, how you have grown! I also can´t believe how much time has passed and to you, my dear and special nephew, I wish éverything that is good! I love you and miss you much and hope that today and every day are wonderful days for you!

And hey, guess what? You share the same birthday as my good friend Jeff, who lives in Phoenix and rides a Harley Davidson. He´s really cool, so I think that only cool people were born on your birthday! Jeff, wish I were there to celebrate! Since I can´t sing here it iS: HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU! HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU! HAPPY BIRTHDAY CASSIDY AND JEFFIE! HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU!! I love you!

Other than that not much happening here. Work is work, still digging the septics for all 3 homes. We are in about 5 feet now so are using buckets. Tedious process but there is progess. Possibly by the end of the week all 3 and maybe even the trench will be dug. There is a brigade from Ohio State U here so I heard they will help us for one day this week. There are 12 of them so that will be good. Too bad they didn´t come on Monday...

This weekend we have reservations at a backpackers alliance hostel for 7 bucks a night in Puerto Viejo. Hopefully Senor Stinkydog remembers me. We will spend the first night in Turrialba, go rafting on Saturday, then spend the last night in PV. Excited to see the scenery from the river. I hear it is beautiful. We were going to go last week but changed plans at the last minute. I love that.

Anyway, my head hurts so I will maybe write more later but am going to bed now. Love ya!

I've been taping your journal to give to my father-in-law, who has emacular degeneration and cannot see very well. Today is Fathers day, so I wanted to finish it so I could give it to him today. I have finished it, other than taping your last two entries, 'Photos of the jobsite', and 'Time Flies'. I have enjoyed making these tapes, three 90 minute tapes, both sides of two of them. I laugh again at the funnies, and marvel at the discriptions of the beauty of Costa Rica, and do some soul searching myself with reading your words of thought. Thank you for reminding all of us to be thankful for all our blessings............you being one of those blessings. Love you much, Cyndi
