April Showers

We haven't had the April showers yet, but they sure had them to the south and east of us with the hail, lightening, and all. We had the wind, lightening, and very little rain.

The soccer game Saturday was so much fun to watch. They have both boys and girls on the teams. My grandson's team won 3-0. He plays defense right in front of the goalie. We had maybe 5 drops of rain while we were there. It was cool, but rather nice when the sun came out. We enjoyed it. Grandpa got to set in the car to watch. My son took his binoculars so he could use them if he wanted to. The field was definitely not for wheelchairs and it was further then he could walk.

The Blondie in the picture is  my youngest grandson. They were on their field trip which they had a blast or at least that is what he said. They were playing doctor including the little white jackets.
I need to get some more projects done. My tulip and iris tea towels are sold and I will ship them tomorrow. You never know when you are going to get lucky. I did finish my mitten pot holders, but I need to take pictures yet. Matt and Jake have a new horse. It is a gray quarter horse mare. A nice disposition. Mom, dad, Jake, and Matt all have rode her. They call her Cleo, but that is not her registered  name. I think Jake is going to show her this summer. His pony Charley was getting to small for him. He is as tall as I am and such long legs. I can't buy him a boy's size 18 anymore. He is only going to be 12 in June, so I wonder if he will be taller then his dad.
Have you ever seen embroidered Easter Eggs like these? I don't think I would be brave enough to even attempt something like these. I borrow the picture from the e-mail I was sent. I thought they were actually appliqued at first, but further in the e-mail she said they actually embroidered and you could see the pin holes from the needles. One thing about them, they are really unique.
The birthday cookout was very enjoyable and my son loved his blue berry, red and black raspberry cobbler cooked in the dutch oven with ice cream. We had a nice visit with all them. Matt wanted to know when Uncle John was coming back to see him. He told him he would see him Saturday at his soccer game. He wants him to come and build Lego's with him.
Have a great week and stay safe. We have a lot of storms all over the country.
