A Week in Review

I had the opportunity to give K & J a brief respite and stay with the boys while they headed south, south of the border for a week.

We went to various high school football games on Friday night and Saturday was spent watching college football games and then shopping for FFA apparel before going to see Money Ball.   Later,hamburgers at Five Guys were delicious.

After church on Sunday, we headed to more sporting events…J to a tennis match and P to a baseball game.payne pitching

On Monday, P had to dress in his FFA “uniform” for school since he is an officer…the treasurer.

Lunch with friends was good and P cooked hotdogs on the grill on supper.

After school, J had a tennis lesson.2011-10-03 007That evening they both attended the FFA meeting.

On Tuesday, I went to Corpus to return things for K and make a Wal-Mart run!

On Wednesday, a tractor was in front of the house!2011-10-04 002

Everyday I was able to walk, straighten the house, do laundry, read, knit and run the “taxi”!  Cooking a variety of breakfast items for the boys was always fun.  A friend came for supper and P cooked our hamburgers on the grill…he’s a real renaissance man!

On Thursday, the Jr. High was celebrating “Cowboy Day” and J certainly looked the part…

K & J came home in the afternoon and after feeding P and getting him back to school, we went to San Diego for P’s football game.  We ate Mexican food along the way to the game.  (History reminder…San Diego is in Duval County which became infamous in the election of LBJ to the US House when it seems that a number of people who lived in the cemetery voted for him!)

The camera had some issues when the game was over, but I still enjoyed the stinky, sweaty boy!

I flew home on Friday and liked seeing the sun on the clouds from the window of the airplane.

I had a great time with the boys and hope to be able to do it again sometime.

You are one awesome mom and grandmother. That's a lot of activity - - and fun you had. Since ours have been out of school almost ten years, you tend to forget how busy they were in the afternoons. Thanks for sharing your good times.
