Bike ride!

Jody and I took the kids for a bike ride after school a couple of weeks ago. It is a nice long, flat bike trail. A really neat place to ride bikes.

Off to Ga....

The girls and I are leaving today for Ga. We are going down for Convention. They are excited and can't wait but they don't want to miss their school work. The teachers are sending it with them so hopefully we can get it done on the plane. Brad left today for NC and Ky for the week. If we had known we were going to Ga when he got his tickets he would have met us for the weekend. I don't like us being separated. Really, I am a homebody but love to see people. So I force myself to go and I am always glad I went. The dogs are off to the kennels. Tucket LOVES it there and Missy hates it, so it is always mixed feelings when I leave them. Well, I must finish up details here before I go. I actually get to play some tennis before leaving!!! I think it will be good for me to get my energy out. Have a good week and I will have pictures to post when I get back.

Busy Days!

*** We are all enjoying our school routine. It keeps everyone happy and busy. I have to say I do have more time on my hands now and no more excuses for anything. But it does help me feel a little bit more prepared for the girls.

*** The girls started piano yesterday. Ava loves it and is so interested in taking lessons. She will sit and play on her own a lot. Ellie has decided she doesn't like it and complained the entire way there "I don't like piano, it's hard". Well, at the lesson the teacher was talking about technique. (she needs to relax her arm/hand) and he said "some people say 'I don't like piano' and think it is hard...." She actually left piano enjoying her lesson. So hopefully she will get into it again.

*** Last weekend was nice and quite around here. Brad had to work and we (the girls and I) stayed around the house. On Sunday, we had the Timms and Kilgores for lunch and then the Timms stayed for the afternoon. So for supper we grilled and the Whites joined us. So nice to sit and visit.

*** This next weekend we have open house at Chappell Tractor. It is always fun and exciting to see all the people come to the store. Activities do attract a crowd. Hopefully, it won't rain. Looks good so far.

*** Next week Brad is away on business and I am going home for conv. The girls and I are excited. It's only my third time home for conv. since I got married. I look forward to seeing all the Ga. family and friends.

So the happenings here.
