Spending My Time

    This is the two boys that I am spending my summer at their house so that when big brother goes to work I am there for ornery as I call him. When you see his little blue eyes sparkle, you know that he is up to something, but you just don't know what. The first picture was taken at Pony Camp where they learned about the Indians. They put a program on for the parents and grandparents the last day of school. The volunteers were dressed in Indian costumes and went by Indian names. All of the kids had names and he had a lot of fun. I took him and then went and picked him up at the end of the day. It was a good thing when they had it  was cooler. We had a heat index was in the triple digits today. I stayed home in the air condition.
  My little cowboy in his new shirt, hat,and tie. He wanted to catch the judges eye. All the girls eyed him when they walk by. I took him and my youngest grandson to the movies. A little girl was sitting on the other side of her mom and made her move so that she could set by him. I think he really wanted to change seats, but I was setting in the middle. We went to see Dolphin Tales 2. All it takes is a can of food each for the food bank and where can you go to the movies that cheap. After the movies, then we went to Culver's for lunch. I took the boys to my daughter's house and ended up spending most of the afternoon with her talking. I would like for you to say prayers for her with everything that is going on in her life. Pray that Tuesday brings good results for her and what is happen.
    That is all that she will let me say at the present time. I just know this hasn't been  good year for them, but hope that it gets better.  
   My oldest grandson and Juliet got a first place with his palomino. Some wasn't happy about it. She did a beautiful job doing what he needed, but she is only three years old. I saw him go off of her last night. He didn't get hurt and got back on her and rode. He worked her for over a hour. He has been putting up hay. He gave us a scare when his saddle broke on his gaming horse. They were doing team of two barrels. It was a good thing she kept bumping into his partners horse while he was trying to get her under control. He didn't hit the fence and he has his saddle fixed ready to go for the next ride. His dad and him repaired it their self. One of the other dads told them how he fixed his saddle when it did the same thing. He got a learning experience of who not to work for again putting up hay. He only got paid part of his money and told him he would get the rest the next time he worked for him. That is not the way to treat kids if you want them to work in the heat. 
   My little cowboy warming up his horse he is showing right now. The horse had three different riders on her. Her owner's daughter who is my oldest grandson's age and a little girl who is younger so she really got a workout. 
    I hope that you all are staying cool and dry. We lucked out this last time, an area to the north of us had over 9 inches of rain plus a tornado.The rivers are out again so you have to be careful how you go if you have to cross any of the three. Just be safe and I will try to pop in and out. Take care.

Oh my goodness you are so busy. I am sending prayers to your daughter in hopes that all turns out to be perfect. Not nice of that man to take advantage of your grandson, really that man should be held accountable for what he did.
Hugs,

Shirley, Your boys are a handsome bunch. It is so good they are involved in this activity. They learn a sport and how to treat animals too. I am sick of all the bad weather and rain too. Take care, xoxo,Susie

Yes the heat has been terrible and its awful that people like that take advantage of kids instead of paying them what the job is worth.
