I haven't done a Random Friday for a long time it seems but there has been a lot of things going on so this will be a good week to do one. The Mom's in the neighborhood were rejoicing as school started last week! :o)
Don't they all look spiffy in their new school clothes?!
Here comes the bus, cameras are flashing!! See my shadow on the left taking a picture? :o)
School is going well for both of the kids. They both got the teachers that they wanted which makes it nice. Miss T has started guitar lessons and will go back to gymnastics. Mr. D hasn't decided what he wants to do yet for extra curricular activities but will most likely play basketball again like last year but isn't old enough to take a music instrument at school yet.
The girls wanted to go for a ride in the cart so Grampie hitched Kipper up and off they went. Son came along and took Lil' Bud to go along with them. He doesn't ride that often but has not lost his seat at all, just hops on and goes like he used to when he was riding every day. He chuckled and said to me "this is the first time in my life that you've let me ride in sneakers!" I was always adamant about wearing boots around the horses when he was young the same way I am with the grands now. Funny the things they remember. :o)
It was a gorgeous day with high puffy clouds and the sun shining down on us. Not hot, just right! :o)
Grampie was teaching the girls how to unhitch Kipper from the cart and to take his harness off. Miss T did a lot of the driving with Grampie's help of course.
We had a fun surprise over the weekend at the lake. My sister and her friend Ruth made a complete turkey dinner for us and all I had to bring was a quart of milk! Now that is the way to go!
Ruth even picked a bouquet of flowers for the table out of my garden.
This is my BIL, Funsize, my sister Jill, Ruth, Jeff, and The Hubs was taking the picture. I felt like Queen for a Day! I know some of you remember that show when it was on tv years ago....You young gals won't! :o)
I'm looking forward to seeing Dawn of Call Me Grandma Dawn again this fall. She and DC will be here visiting their son so hopefully we will get a chance to visit at the lake house. It's so nice to meet up with our blogging friends, you feel like you have known them forever and pick right up where you last left off on your last post! See you soon Dawn!
Last but not least please keep Barn Goddess' family in your prayers. To lose a mom so young with young children is so sad I cannot even imagine it. Her husband has a huge job ahead of him trying to be both mom and dad to Wee One and Bubba. Also pray for her extended family as they struggle with such a loss. Thanks!
