Weekend News....

I hope yall enjoy this as much as I have! These guys are so fun to watch...



Today was a bit tiresome. We woke up before 3 to a heavy lightning and thunderstorm. Not all that much rain but it was one of the most dramatic storms I've experienced as far as the lights and sounds! Once when we were in Austin we had a bad storm, lightning seemed to be forming just above the houses, just like last night's show. Anyway, it was a good while before I got back to sleep and then we were up before 6 to start our day.

We are getting ready for a trip next week to Oklahoma and then back to Texas to visit some homeschool friends. Mark has an oxygen seminar in OKC so the kids and I are going to spend a couple of days with my aunt and uncle near there. They have some gorgeous ponds, full of fish, so Ryan is geeked and the girls have a cousin near their age to visit with. We'll leave there and head to the Dallas area for Mark to attend another seminar, I think this one's about medicare somesuch. Our friends we met through our local homeschool group moved up there a while back and we'll spend the day with them before heading home. I hope to get some good pictures to share, if my camera will behave. Don't know if I'll blog while we're gone or not. I think I may take a little internet vacation. That sounds kinda nice actually...

Tomorrow we have to shore up the fence to make sure the doggies can't escape while we're gone and do a ton of other chores(clean the garage, mow, put up some shelves, take junk to Goodwill, etc). They usually sleep in a kennel in our garage but they'll be outside this time for a few nights. I hope they don't drive the neighbors nuts. One of Ryan's friends will come feed them and some of our homeschooling friends in the neighborhood will take care of the cats and guinea pigs.

Whew, I'm tired just thinking about it.

***edited to correct some spelling mistakes. I've typed himalayan(himi) once to many times lately and it screwed me up for seminar. geez.
