Both Sam and John have dominant right eyes. They pull the string back with the right hand, squint with the left eye closed and use the right eye to sight the target. The first thing the instructors did after the safety talk, was to determine which eye was dominant for each archer.
The weather was so lovely and the shadows long as we move slowly from summer to fall.
It started last fall that Greg would come over to hike in the woods to scout deer and Juby and I are always thrilled to join him on a walk through the woods with Handsome.
With busy schedules, we don't get always get to see our little buddy as much as we would like to. I love to see him having fun here so that he will always want to go visit grandma and grandpa!
We spent the evening hours outdoors and were able to witness the G-man ride a two wheeler for the first time!
it was great to spend some quality time with this young couple and we look forward to seeing them again!
They gave us permission to swim in their very nice in-ground pool for taking care of the dog!
...and a basketball hoop.
Speaking of which, let's offer a prayer for her safe Delivery:
O Lord God Almighty, Creator of all things and Giver of knowledge to mankind; Who fashioned the body of man from the earth and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, granting him Your blessings, that he might increase and multiply by means of the birth of children: We fervently entreat You Who loves mankind to bless this Your servant, Kat, who is with child, granting her help and comfort at this trying time. Ease her labor and bring her to a safe delivery. Yes, O Lord, open the treasury of Your mercies and Your compassion to her, and let her give birth to a fruitful vine to be a cause of joy to her all the days of her life. For You are blessed, together with Your Only-begotten Son, and Your Most-holy, Good and Life-creating Spirit, now and forever. Amen.
I really enjoyed spending this special time with my youngest son which can sometimes be a rarity in a big family.
Kick him in the Knee.
Rah Rah Rass,
Kick him in the Other Knee!
This used to be one of the cheers hollered out when I was in high school, but nothing I have ever actually done to Larry. Nevertheless, he qualified for another Total Knee Replacement and had that surgery on his right knee, 18 months after having had his left knee done. This picture was taken on Day 3 post-op in the exercise room where he played Wi Bowling.
Just like with his last knee surgery, we absolutely LOVED having him home each day for over four weeks. We had some wonderful family time as this operation was during the summer and the kids had no school!
It was a lot of fun to see them as a married couple and to wish them well before they left on their fabulous Honeymoon!
