I don't know where the time goes, I haven't posted since last Wednesday!
We were so busy getting ready for Keith's parents to stay the weekend, and I just couldn't find time to sit and look through pictures, or even take many!
You may laugh and wonder why I am showing you a platter of peanut butter and jelly sandwiches!
They were so cute with the gummy bears intertwined, and a big hit with the kids, AND some of the adults!
They were thick and gooey, and yes, I had one!
Here's Keith with his mom and dad, Trudy and Ralph Yoder.
I didn't realize he and his mom were color-coordinated at our get-together... but the folks came
down Friday night, and left Saturday after the party to go home to Ames.
Our sweet little granddaughter, Brynn Allison, will have a little sister
to play with in September.
Papaw Yoder did some baby-dandling on his knee with Carson.
And Big Brother Jace was everywhere at once!
There was lots of playing with balls and bubbles....
And driving around in the yard.
By the time everyone was gone, Keith and I were worn out ... I hurried off to church... and
was able to sleep in yesterday morning. We spent a very quiet day resting... and then
went to a T Bones game at 5:05.
We saw this contraption parked in the handicapped parking. What a GREAT idea... a
And there goes Team Mascot Sizzle, waving to everyone from the back of the Lakeside Speedway truck... while two race cars were exhibited. The kids in black stepping out of the way were there to sing the National Anthem.
Skies were balmy... but it was very hot and humid.
By fourth inning, this had started to happen.... and Keith and I kept our eyes on it.
We were still very tired...
So at the top of the sixth, we decided to start for home. We drove home through pounding rain.
(The game was called in the seventh).
And the evening ended up overcast and wet.
We have clouds again today, but rain chances reduced from 80% to 40%, and so far, we have had no drops.
Keith's daughters, Amber and Andrea, and sons-in-law, Jesse and Nick, have offered to
come and help us on the 12th at the old house, to blow out as much as we can in one day's work
on the property, to help get it ready for renting. We are so grateful for this, because Keith's health is still dicey, and trying to do so much was going to be hard on us. I am going to get Chris and Haleigh, and we will get as absolutely much done in one day as we can. What a relief it will be to Keith and me to have the house ready for a rental agent to handle it, and not have the responsibility of going out there regularly to check on things.
I know I'm remiss in reading some of your blogs, and I apologize for that.
I'll try to get caught up this week.
