Today, I'll be mowing - I did it on Monday, and should have done it again on Thursday but we were busy and yesterday we had friends over for a play date. Kamryn's friend Trinity came for birthday cupcakes and fun, and her older brothers came and played with Kyle. We let them eat cupcakes, too! They are great kids and we had a good afternoon! Their mama and I had a great time visiting, too! Fun times!
Sarah had gone with her bff Laura, who happens to be our son in law Joseph's sister, to an art gallery. They were celebrating Laura's birthday. They had lunch out, too. Sarah had so much fun. They got back and spent time with our guests and when Laura left, I took Sarah to a party with her co-op friends.
Tim's had a busy week of work, and has a few things planned for today. He's going to weed wack along the creek and all the places I can't get with the mower, and he's getting a load of hay today. Otherwise it will be a more relaxed weekend for him, and I'm glad.
Tomorrow is Father's Day. Sarah leaves in the morning for a youth retreat - she's SO excited, and besides celebrating the Dad's in our family - we will be anticipating the arrival of our longtime bff's. They are both retired now and spend the summers visiting family and friends. They bought a camping trailer, and spend a good bit of time with their grands in New Hampshire. We usually get them for a solid week around Labor Day, but this year, we get them for a week now and around Labor Day! We are very happy about this!
Thank you for your kind thoughts on yesterday's post. Dotsie mentioned that this general grief (due to all the tragedy in the world) is "in the background" of our lives now. I think this is true.
I hope you have a delight-filled weekend.
