Playing Kickball on the Hill
Bridger's hips are in no shape to be playing kickball, but he can't resist being there to herd the kids. We're enjoying having three of our young grandsons with us. I wanted you to know that I may not be getting posts up as regularly, but the reason is there in that alfalfa field. We're busy - keeping the boys busy and hopefully (and so far) happy!
I'll have to admit that this grandma and grandpa were totally BEAT at the end of Day 2, but on the third day (and a lot of prayer) we all seemed to get into a routine, which made things so much easier.
- Slow and easy breakfast time
- An hour of 'work' in the morning
- I was explaining this to a friend yesterday: It's not that you or I would call it work, necessarily, but it's things that have to be done, e.g. picking the tomatoes or picking up sticks around the yard - accompanied by Grandma and Grandpa, of course.
- Going someplace special in the afternoon
- PBS Kids while Grandma is making dinner
- Don't worry, Mom, I'm careful of what they watch.
- Active outdoor time
- Bible time, Story time, Bedtime

Don't try to tell him that he's not a BIG KID

I bet you didn't know that cannon actually shoot bowling balls!

Everyone's now sleeping through the night, which is really a blessing! Even Grandma slept through the whole night last night. Unheard of.

and those tomatoes the boys helped pick
I really should can them tomorrow, but it's not going to happen.
We have things to do and places to go and people to see!
