After all that sticky heat last week, we've been enjoying cool (very cool!) breezes for several days. Perfection. It's been sunny by day. Brisk at night. Dewey in the morning. It feels like Fall in July. Here are five randoms for the week:
1. Our daughter may not play with Barbies or know who Hannah Montana or Taylor Swift is.. but she is well versed in the greats, like Rocky Balboa, Rudy (Ruettiger), & the Karate Kid. Here she is teaching the Crane Kick to a young friend.
(We love this group of young friends, who spent a fun afternoon & evening with us this week!)
2. Mason & Johnathan got stung by hornets while I was mowing the other day & had asked them to move a few things. There's apparently a nest in our woodshed. Every summer we find a hazardous hornets nest somewhere or another. Poor Johnathan's hand really swelled up! He recovered & has been away working with Dad for a few days.. I look forward to his return tonight.
3. We had our two-year-old niece over one afternoon this week. Lilly & Beau adore her, and it seems mutual. I took her for a Ranger ride to pick some flowers, like any
cool Auntie would do. And then she ate cherries off our tree. We had a blast.
They helped their Gramps the last couple of days, cleaning out my parents' barn. And they come & go whenever possible with their good friend Dale - who is a regular here at our house.
I caught a photo of Eric as they worked on getting formed up for concrete for our addition. Mason saw the camera & I wasn't so lucky.
For the sake of including a teenage photo - here they are earlier this summer - Our twins on each end, their friends in the middle. (And Lilly peeking into the picture, too.) They had found a little mud out in the woods behind our house that day.
Kids, kids, everywhere. They make summer fun, and they sure make it fly!
