Today was our day with Tripp and we did lots of fun things...inside and out.Some of the plants really have enjoyed all of the rain we have had this month...
During a no-rain period, Mike was able to plant some Stella D'Oros. He said that the ground was saturated!
It is the peak of strawberry season, so this is our dessert tonight and we have them for breakfast and snack time.
PS...Congrats to our friends John and Courtney who are expecting a baby in Dec.

Our first afternoon there found J at baseball practice and P had his first swim team practice.
It didn't rain at the baseball field, so J was able to get his game in. Keeping his eye on the ball!
It was a winning game, but time to take the equipment home.
Dad is the assistant coach and they always have duties.
On Saturday, sil had to go to a booster club activity, but the rest of us, including the other grandparents and Liz went to Banquete so that P could play a game. This is a very small community about 30 minutes away and has a convenience store and that's about it!
P pitched and was 2 for 3 at the plate and his team won.
After the game, we stopped for wonderful pizza before K and P joined sil at the booster club function, which was a team roping event. Again, it rained, there was another rainbow and then they went to the club sponsered dance. J enjoyed the time with his animals.On Sunday, we went to church and then to town for a great hamburger.
After driving around in town and seeing the bay, we drove to check on a couple of the fields. There sould be cotton in this field, knee high, but the seed hasn't even come up!
We were able to get a little closer on this drive to the windmills.
Container gardening is the way to go.
All too soon, it was time for us to head back to TN after a good visit.

After playing 3 periods, the rains came and the game was stopped and the 2nd game was cancelled.
So then it was time for Allie's graduation cook out. She had graduated from Lee earlier in the morning.Here we are with the college graduate.
This is Tripp and Hero, otherwise known as Brandon. We had watched him in a CHS playoff baseball game last night. Cleveland scored 9 runs in the last inning to win!
Tonight was prom for CHS and Brandon had to get a trim from mom!

On Sunday afternoon, we had the privilege of attending "The Day of 1000 Stories" which was a tribute to Pat Summitt and her 1000 wins with the Lady Vols. Karen enjoyed renewing friendships with coaches, players and fans that were part of her life while she was a manager with the Lady Vols. It was truly a sea of orange!
