Thanks for all your prayers...
Mom sailed through surgery and has begun the long process of healing. She is in a lot of pain, but is stable. I am hoping her pain will be better managed tomorrow because they will be getting her up and sitting her either on the side of the bed, or in the chair.
Thanks for thinking of us, and for all your good thoughts.

Please say a prayer for us..
My mom has her surgery on Monday. Please keep her in your thoughts and prayers, and ask that everything go smoothly, that she won't be in any unnecessary pain, and she recovers quickly.
Thanks for thinking of us.

Papas, girls in boots, and a hired boy,

Riles and Danny love to play outside with sticks. They gather the sticks up and place them in one of their forts which is either in front of the bay window outside my bedroom, or under the big pine tree that sits next to our driveway. I love to watch them gather their stash and store it. It is so fun to watch them together.
Blackie came down today to put his mower away. Riles walked back with him, and they talked the whole way. Sometimes I wonder what they talk about. Knowing Blackie he is pulling her leg somehow.

In order to get danny to pose for pictures today, I had to pay him $5.00! The little scamp. I hate not having pictures of him to post, or scrapbook, but he just doesn't like me taking pictures. I got some today tho! lol.. and man are they good. Not much going on in my world. How about you?

Just your typical summer day...
We went to the river on memorial day weekend. The kiddos always have such a great time. I love to see how dirty they both get. One of their very favorite things to do is dig in the dirt/sand. Chick digs these really huge holes that she can almost stand in, and the others try to follow suit. Then they try to connect the holes so they try to dig tunnels. It is fun to watch. Not much going on in our world. We take mom back to the dr today, hopefully we will have a course of treatment so we aren't in limbo. Glad to hear my nephew Noah is doing good. He had that nasty Rotovirus. Icky. Glad he is home and doing well.
Some great news in our household. Ms. Riles has now figured out how to ride her bike without training wheels! We stopped at a friends house in town the other day cause riles had to go potty. Her granddaughters were riding without training wheels, and riles hopped on a bike and started to go. It was such an amazing sight.
Danny has been asking questions lately. A lot of questions. Questions I can't answer until we know more info about mom. She is truly his best friend. If he doesn't call her to go play, she calls him. He loves her so much. It is good to see they have a good relationship.
Well, I will leave you with some pics from the river.
