Birthday Party

 Sigrid picked a wallet for her mother.  It was really nice.
Here are the 3 cards Laura's girls made for her big day.
Ingrid's says--
I am not saying you are old, but if you were milk and I started to pour you on my cereal, I would smell you before I even got started.

 I made carrot cake and it was really good.  The girls made Reeces cup cakes with chocolate icing and peanut butter filling.

Happy Birthday, Laura

September 1
The photo is from kindergarten with her cousin, Lewis.  This was her first bike.  It was baby blue and in no time at all she could ride like a pro.  She still loves riding bikes.  Lordy, how old is she...well, it rhymes so you can guess.

Denver, AR 1910

 George Riddle's Store in Denver, AR 1910.  Grandpa Gaddy was born Sept. 2, 1895 so he was 15 at the time of the photo.

Poem for Amy--Erin's Nurse Friend.

Granny passed on the farm
I was her hospice nurse
I thought I had seen it all
But this one was a first.

The body was stone stiff
When they finally called me
I rushed out  to the farm
And was amazed to see!

Granny was loaded in the jeep
Her heels stuck out the rear
She was just too long to fit
In there with all that gear!

He showed me shovels, picks,
And an ax that was for choppin'
He said they were in a hurry
On their way to Joplin!

I did not know what to do
What I said they were not hearin'
So I punched in a direct call
To the office and asked for ERIN!

More Volleyball

Astrid's volleyball team played tonight.  They won one match, lost one, and lost the tie breaker, but it was a good game and she played really well.

Ingrid Wins First Game

 We traveled down the interstate to watch Ingrid play her first volleyball game.  They won, but it went to 3 games.   I am glad they won.  Ingrid played really well!

August Almost Over

 Clayton and Greta before school today.  Greta's new hair cut looks good on her.  Clayton had spelling words to study last night.
 Today we are traveling to Ingrid's first volleyball game.  I hope she does well.  Of course, I bet she is the best player on the team and the prettiest and the smartest!

I am losing my touch with watermelon picking.  Got Laura to come over and pull me one.  This is what hers looked like.  Mine is in the frig.  I hope it looks the same.
