Well I am taking a page out of my own sermon today. Did you see my post about chores on Indiana's Family of Farmers? We were supposed to be heading out for a lunch with other District Farm Bureau friends at Prophetstown, a very cool place I am told, just north of Lafayette, near the Tippecanoe Battlefield, but........ we didn't get the rain we were supposed to get, so we are staying home so Tall Guy can spray his corn for weeds, and the girls and I can run the tanks to him where/whenever he needs them.
I have to confess right here that, while I was a bit compulsive about checking the radar before this spring, I am now a full-fledged OCD weather radar girl! ACK!
We WILL get out to Prophetstown. We both were looking forward to seeing this historic park that focuses on farming and living 100 years ago for the first time. Put it on our "TO DO" list for the summer.
Finished up Vacation Bible School yesterday, and the heat (no AC where I was) and about 80 munchkins under ages 3-12 wore me out! I was a comatose zombie when we finally walked through the door yesterday afternoon, BUT it was soooo much fun working with those little cutie patooties! I was the song and dance lady to start and end their day. We learned songs with sign language and motions and jumping and shouting. WOOO! We closed the last day with our Big Finale. 364 days until the next VBS week of fun! I am working on a post filled with this cuteness for next week.
Girls start swim lessons on Monday. I hope they learn quickly. They are great water bugs ( I LOVE our pictures from Florida this past spring!), but I want to be absolutely sure, or as sure as a momma can be, that they can be in the water and be safe. That means swimming without struggling.
My nephew, the Army Ranger, is coming home at the end of the month from Afghanistan, and we have been scratching our heads trying to figure out how to get his vehicle back to Fort Campbell for him to have. I think we finally figured out all the logistics, but I am certain that Army schedules and farming do NOT blend well together. See blog about chores and scheduling. Ft. Campbell is about a six hour drive straight south for us, and a fairly nice drive. We go back down July 6 to see him awarded his own group (unit?). I'm sure I will have a blog post for you after that important date.
My garden is naked. Yep! It's kind of like the plumber's house or the carpenter's house that never has projects finished..... I am thinking since some farmers are still planting, maybe I can grab some seeds and plants this weekend and pull something of a vegetable garden together. Stay tuned.
Gotta go round up the girls. They went out to do their chores by feeding Goldie and Mr. Doo-hickey. We need to run into town real quick-like and register for fall soccer, grab some great MILK
Have a great weekend, and enjoy the cooler weather that seems to be on its way!
