Busy Week

The weekend has really flown by. It is probably because so much has been shoved into two days. We had some rain not much, thunder and lightening. Kanas City and the surrounding area got hit worse then us. We did lose our electricity on Wednesday afternoon about 2 and didn't get it back until nearly 4 A.M. We were fortunate that it was not the day before because it was 103. The way it was the house didn't start getting hot until morning. If it had been otherwise, we would have been looking for a place to stay.
We went to Ethan's  6th birthday  party on Saturday Afternoon. He had a bowling party. It was fun to watch the boys bowl. He was so excited. It doesn't seem like he should really be that old and starting to kindergarten here in just a little over a week. He is ready to go to school. He and his parents are going to the State Fair which starts this Thursday. He wants to ride the ponies for one thing.
We went to watch the boys and their dad ride at Pickering, Missouri. Matt won his first trophy and is so proud of it. You can tell the eyes are just sparkling. He doesn't care what he rides as long as he gets to ride.
He was warming up Baby sis so that he could do Trail Ride. He didn't do to bad in it, but she wouldn't trot for him. She just stands for him and he doesn't even hold on to her. Jake place in every even that he entered. Cleo doesn't care for him to try to open the gate while still on her back. They have been lucky in finding the two horses that they have.
Hope you all have a good week. Try to stay cool.

That would be so much fun to ride horses! I can't believe your school is starting already. I have no idea when it starts here. But I haven't heard anything on the news so it must be later.

It sounds like a very busy weekend, but oh what a fun one. Happy 6th to the birthday boy. He looks so happy and they grow up so fast.
I was just telling my hubby today that we are finally on the down side of summer. I am so happy. 113 degrees with nights in the 100's is just getting to be too much. I am ready for fall. I know that the country has been in a heat wave way too long. I hope you can stay cool Shirley. I am looking forward to seeing those lovely creations of yours, Char
