Jose' has arrived!!
It's been an eventful day out here. Memaw and Pa brought our new baby and we had to get him settled in his pen. He's already met Oreo, Billy and Sadie. We're not too sure whether he really enjoyed the goats or really wanted to stomp them into the ground. Either way, he definitely got excited when they were around and chased them quite vigorously.
After the donkey excitement, we took the kids to the pool. Pa should sleep well tonight. All three of the kids were pulling him in a different direction and he got a pretty good workout. It's so hot outside, the pool is the only thing that makes the days bearable. Well, the pool and the root beer floats that the grandparents fed the kids way too close to dinner time.
Received Haylie's TAKS test results in the mail. She earned a perfect score on the math portion and only missed one on the reading/comprehension. She really did a great job. She and her cousin, Doug, are now in a competition to see who can get the highest grades next year in school. Haylie smoked him this year and on her TAKS ~ although he also received commended performance on all of his tests and he's an honor student as well. I'm all for them being competitive about it. Whatever it takes to motivate them to do well...it's so important. I hope they have fun with it next year and it (competition) continues through high school. May just have a couple of valedictorians on our hands.
Well, I'm pooped. I guess I need to make the rounds of feeding/watering my crew outside and maybe I'll have time for a long soak in the tub and a good book tonight. Michael is working until late ~ it's a good night for relaxing. Hope everyone is enjoying their weekend and getting some rest.
