Our church teen group is in the middle of “man weekend” with the junior and senior high guys. Today they came by for a competitive fish tournament. The bass were biting and the competiton was tough. Lots of fish caught and 7 of them each weighed over a pound.
We had a great night with our friends from Little People of America. Lots of swimming and eating and playing. LPA continues to be a big part of our life and we always enjoy being with them.
Lola Jane turned six years old recently and it was a perfect summer day for a party. After lots of cake and presnts, our good friends The Stanelys brought thier horses over for all the kids to enjoy. It was a party to remember.
We bought chicks from TSC in the early spring, kept them in the house, then the barn and finally to the coop. So far we haven’t lost any of the chickens to predators. And finally…our first eggs! Everyone is very excited.
All the hard work of spring finally pays off…tomatoes and cucumbers and squash coming in nearly day. This year I started the tomatoes from seed. And I have a strict “no tomato left behind” policy. We either eat them or share them. Mouth sores all summer are a small price to pay for Cherokee Purples and Early Girls at every meal.
I even found a “blue” variety this year…they start out blueish purple and ripen into a red.
It will take more than a few thundershowers to keep us from having a big July 4th celebration. About 70 friends and family came over to pig out on ribs, cool off in the pool and enjoy some fireworks once the storms gave us a break. So thankful to live in the best country in the world.
