Day 191, Tuesday, July 10, 2012

Stopped at my son, DJ and his beautiful wife, Meredith's home last night---they are in the midst of renovating their home.  Since DJ works long hours, has been ill,  and needs some sleep, progress continues, but slowly!  
Here are Katelyn and Tyler who have also been ill.

It's good to see the progress that has been made on the house!
Mahree & Sam came along, and walked around the yard, and
visited...beautiful evening!

 beautiful sunset on the way home!

Day 190, Monday, July 9, 2012

 Mahree picked out material for her outfit she wants to make for Fair.  We're getting a late start, but she'll do fine.  Afterwards she talked me into making a stop at Krispy Kreme donuts---the red light was on, so we got free donuts---I brought mine home for Spencer.  Spencer is a donut vacuum cleaner!!

Day 183, Monday, July 2, 2012

Allyson came over to help Merica work on showmanship---she's not at all confident with her bunny.  Ally also helped Mahree go through showmanship.

Dean and Lori were so kind to drop off several children besides Allyson---Jameson, Aislynn, Josie, play.  Sam's been begging for a playdate; what fun they all seemed to have with visiting, chasing, playing in the water, the outdoor toys, and swinging!  I had fun taking pictures!!  Roger stayed home to do chores, and they took Evelyn & Silas with them...not sure where Jackson was!!

Day 181, Saturday, June 30, 2012

Once again we have a foster kitty family!  The Mommy is a long haired Siamese mix, tiny, and very sweet---we hope she finds just the right family.

She had 5 kittens, and they came to us when the babies were about 10 days old---we gave them a birthday of May 8!

Mahree is the foster Mommy, and named the Mommy cat, Rue.  The black tri-colored cat is Cinna, the light colored tri-colored cat is Brenda.  The two grey and white kittens are Grover (the bigger one with the pink nose) and the other is Gale and he has a black nose.  The buff and white colored kitten is named Percy Jackson!  She named them all after characters in books she has recently read!

Day 180, Friday, June 29, 2012

An at least once daily routine---Mahree and/or Merica unlock the bunny barn, and take care of the bunnies.  They are very faithful in their care of the animals!  Proud of them!

Spencer enjoys playing in the water, and in this picture is getting the hose out.  The kids like to play in the sprinklers, and we are so blessed to have inground sprinklers.  They have favorite zones, and will ask me to put on number 7, or change it to 5!  Sometimes they get the kiddie pool out fill it as well....

Spencer has grown so much over the past year.  At 10 he is taller than I am, wears size 10 1/2 men's shoes,and his voice has already changed!  So much for a very young boy to deal with---and he is rather shy to begin with---soon all his peers will catch up with him!!

Day 180, Thursday, June 28, 2012

Kaitie, Spencer, and Sam happened out the door, and it was fun for me to catch this impromptu photo of them!  Love those kids!!!

Dora (the Explorer) is one of our two "barn" cats, who live in our garage.  They come and go, and are becoming more and more friendly.  Dora is Mahree's cat, and our other "barn" cat, Pippi, is Sam's!

Our theme has become frogs--for F.R.O.G.--Fully Rely on God!  This frog's been swinging in our front yard for a couple of years now!

Day 179, Wednesday, June 27, 2012

It is always amazing to gaze upon the beautiful flowers that God allows us to enjoy in our yard!  I never tire of walking around and looking at them!

Day 178, Tuesday, June 26, 2012

The kids love to play outside in the sprinkler, and the hose often comes into play as well!

Mahree really loves all of her animals, and Purina Bree is one of her favorite bunnies---unfortunately Bree has developed a dewlap (check out the extra lump under her chin) and can no longer be shown.
