Maypearl Drum Corps

Will is in the Marching Band now. The uniform is so black it doesn't show up well in the picture. The drum corps is solid black and he will be getting a black beret to go with it. They went to Hamilton for the game last night and didn't get home until 1am. Next week is homecoming and he may get to march on the field with the rest of the band for the first time. He's just been sitting in the stands with them until he learns all the songs. By the way, Maypearl lost to Hamilton, 7 to 74.

Peaceful Morning?

It's hard to sleep late on a Saturday morning with 3 huge shaker trucks running outside the window. I hope they find what they are looking for though. Lynne said she could live with the sound of a drilling rig outside for a few months.

Dude! Where's my Ball?

You may have noticed that there are cows on the fairway. It does make for some interesting hazards to try and avoid. I'd rather have sand traps. Maypearl has been given a grant by the PGA and part it goes to training kids in 4th,, 5th, and 6th grade. Once they get to 7th grade they start competing in Jr. PGA tournaments and then in High School they compete in smaller PGA tournaments. Jesse couldn't wait to sign up.

Clear The Roads!!!

Well, #1 son turned 16. He now takes over command of the Toyota Pick-up. Or as he refers to it, the "Joyota". Of course it doesn't run, isn't inspected, and he has no insurance. Lets just hope he doesn't end up like the second picture.

This Past Weekend

On Saturday we had some rain so we went grocery shopping and in the process bought Jesse his new golf clubs. He is stylin' now. They are black and silver and very slick looking. After we got home and put away the groceries we started grilling burgers for Andy's birthday bash. We were expecting somewhere between 10-??? kids. Ron and Debbie Inman came over with their kids to party with Jeff and me. HOOPLA!!!! We grilled 40 hamburgers and had the fixins' for that with chips and salsa. The Inmans brought soupapilla cheesecake (yum!!!). The kids watched a movie while eating and then went outside to goof off. The highlight of the evening was watching Ron and Steelman grab the electric fence and then the t-post and shocking themselves silly. We laughed so hard at them. (For those who don't know, the electric fence will pop you really good if you do this.) Part of the reason this was so funny was because Ron did it first just goofing off and then convinced Steelman (who had just witnessed Ron doing this) to do the same thing. It was hilarious!! After that we shut off all the lights in the house and let the kids play Murder in the Dark while Jeff and I watched a DVD on the portable dvd player in the dining room. At about 1100pm everyone went home and we went to bed. On Sunday afternoon, we spent some time with grandma and grandpa at their house and then came home. We decided that since we still had the grill here we would use it. We grilled pork chops, chicken, and sausage. All we have to do this week is heat up the meat and add some side dishes. I love that. The weather was nice and comfortably cool. I figure somewhere in the low 80's or high 70's. Beautiful weather. Well, I wanted to share this laid back time with all. Have a blessed week and enjoy the season.

We're Back Up and Running

Well, I know that it has been a long time but we have internet service at the new house and hopefully will post new photos soon. We will try to keep a better update on the blog now that we are settled in. To bring everyone up to date, we are moved into the new house and loving it. We are down to 2 puppies that we had deemed ours anyway and the others were adopted over the Antique Alley weekend. Andy turned 16 and got a truck. Lynne turned 40 (what else can you say?). We learned this week that we are to be an aunt and uncle again via Darin and Nocona. Will is drumming around with the High School Marching Band, Andy is on varsity baseball and basketball, and Jesse has started working with the golf crew. That is the condensed version of our lives at this time.

The Long Delay

I'm sorry I haven't updated in a long time. We are in the new house, but we don't have internet access yet. I barely have time to check e-mail at Gran-pa's house, let alone update my blog. I hope that will all change soon.
