School is officially out until fall for most of the kids and this is who I get to hang out with this summer. The first horse show got rained out so we will see how the next one goes that is coming up the first weekend of June. I went to his award assembly this morning and was so proud of him. He has made the honor roll all four quarters. He had to eat his final hot lunch because they were having corn dogs. I don't know what it is about corn dogs that all of the kids seem to like.
I know that both us are doing the reading program through the library this summer. I like to read and that way he will continue to read during the summer. We are going to have a race to see if he can read more books then grandma. Competition is always good to make them try just a little harder.
I now officially have a 4th, 5th grader this fall and a junior in high school. The school year went fast or so it seemed. I just know that it will be a different summer for me. I have never got to stay with the kids like I will this summer because I have always worked so it will be a different one . I am looking forward to it. Big brother is going to be working in the hay fields. It will also give me a change of scenery from the nursing home. When I do go, my grandsons will be going with me so grandpa will get to see his boys.
I hope the funerals are over for a while with losing my brother and my daughter-in-law losing her father. We knew with her father it was a matter of time since he had the original stroke and then at the last he was having mini strokes that they were saying was seizures. It was a blessing for both of them.
We have had such stormy, rainy weather. We did get my yard cut and the weed eating done before the last rain came. I haven't decided if I am going to' try to' have some flowers or not, Looking at the schedule I don't know if I would really have the time to take care of them.
Everybody has a long weekend so we are going to have a cookout tomorrow evening at my daughter's house. I only have to take hamburger buns. Food always taste so good when it is cook on the grill. The girls have planned the menu so it will be fun to see what else we have besides hamburgers. The boys will get to play together.
Our son-in-law is continuing to improve in his physical therapy. He is up to 4 miles a day on the stationary bike. He has really done good so far, but it sure was a scare for everybody that much I do know.
Hope every one has a good weekend. If you travel, please be careful on the roads. Prayers continue go out to those in need whether dealing with the aftermath of the storms, floods, or sickness. I know that is what helps us and we take every day that we are given .
