SOME SCENES FROM OUR WEEK
.
Just thought I'd post a summary of recent happenings along with some photos as I'm not feeling in a terribly creative, wordsy mood.
. .
Two weeks ago someone unintentionally blessed us when the they dumped a dalring little black and white part border collie mix puppy beside the road behind our barn. She was such a cutie that it was a given from the beginning that we would keep her. The boys immediately named her Indie. She captured our hearts right away, though she did try their patience frightfully those first few nights when they had to take turns getting up with her. It gave them a crash course on parenting and gave them a better appreciation of what we had to do for them as babies.
.
This past Wednesday I took the kids and a couple of B's friends with us to the Hattiesburg Zoo where we were meeting Granpere' and getting D back. D had been staying with his grandparents and earning money helping my dad with his nursery business to earn money for boyscout camp.

Today was a scrimmage game for B's softball team which is playing fastpitch this year. She played catcher today and has the bruises to show for it. She was also able to score one run. Her team, the Star Bursts, shone brightly. I know...that's a terrible pun, but I just couldn't resist. They beat the other team 11 to 2.
