Have a blessed day everyone.

Hope your son likes the college and enjoy the camping trip!!!

We were so busy this weekend! We did more on Saturday than in Black Friday last year! It was crazy!

Tomorrow, Adi & I are going to the pumpkin patch, corn maze, and out for dinner. Should be fun!! 🎃

Thinking of you all~

Hope you have a blessed & beautiful day!!

have fun at the pumpkin patch!

While he was there, he bid on a silent auction for a very nice guitar and won! He got it for nearly $600 off retail! What a lucky find.

I hope y'all have a great day!
you are a busy guy! When is her fist production of the play going to be?
Well done Jacob, have fun with the guitar.

We had a little excitement over the weekend. On the side of the state road below our house, some hunters had a bear treed. They were ready to shoot when some tourist driving by saw it and stopped. The hunters couldn't shoot with all the people around and the tourist were arguing with the hunters and refusing to leave. It got a little heated but the hunters finally gave up. The bear was gone the next morning.

Bitter/sweet weekend coming up. Friday we are taking our son for another college visit. These are tough on me. I keep a lump in my throat the whole time.

Good luck to your son (and you!) during the college visit.

And hope you guys enjoy your camping trip!! Sounds fun!

Enjoy your cigar, my husband loves a good stogy every once in awhile, too.
