Well, my girlie is home. She had a wonderful time. It is a joy to hear of how kind, helpful, and cheerful she was on her trip. My dad said "she did you proud". She is a delightful young lady, and all the relatives want to keep her.
We went out to my parents house to swim in the afternoon, and to be there when they arrived home. I stopped at an Amish produce stand and bought cantalope and tomatoes! Delightful! Mrs. Fisher said that just like with the strawberries, the heat is making everything ripen fast!
We got home after 9:00 and about an hour later our power went out. That is unusual for us. I called my mom and she said their power was out as well! That is even more unusual as we live 20 minutes away from each other. It turns out that a substation transformer blew and power was out to a huge portion of the southern part of our county. As it was bedtime, it was not a big deal although we were missing our air conditioning! Our power stayed out for about 1 hour. Ahhhh, we slept well. When I called my parents there power was still out, so we invited them here, but they were tired and decided just to sleep in their own beds. Their power came back on this morning around 5:00 am.
Today, the girls have ridden our horse Sandi already, as it is going to be hot and humid.
Here is Sandi with her fly mask on. Doesn't she look funny? What you can't tell in this picture is that the ears are covered as well. Sort of like Batman! She is 18 years old and is a sorrel quarter horse. She is a very nice horse.
I need to get some co-op paperwork done today. I the leader of a homeschool support group that meets for 20 weeks - 2 ten week semesters - that runs from preschool -12th grade. It is parent taught classes, sports, choir, field trips, mom's nights. We usually run at 60 families. We are in need of updating some of our forms, we are trying to streamline the paperwork!
I am trying to think of something easy and light for dinner. Any suggestions?
