 Here are some of the first pictures I posted of Greta.  Hard to believe this sweet one is 6 years old.  I pray today for the Lord to protect her and all the little ones.

She is having cup cakes at school.  You can see from the top picture that Greta looks like Greg's family.  Maybe she has my heart!

Pumpkin People

Clayton and Greta both entered pumpkins in the character pumpkin contest at their school.  Can you guess who either of these are.  I have no clue!   I am out of touch with children's culture.

Colors' Day Court

 Ingrid was a member of the Colors' Day Court.  She was beautiful!   I went to the school function in the afternoon and Pop and I attended the football game tonight.    I love both her dresses!  Her Dad looks mighty handsome, too!

Pretty In Pink

 Greta's soccer photo is really nice.  She looks good in pink.

Ingrid and her friend, Claire, dressed up in scrubs for twin day at school.  It may be to honor her Aunt Erin, RN.

Fall--Few Days At A Time

 We have a day or two of fall and then summers rears it "hot" head again.  Today, I walked two miles and it was hot.  I will say, "I made myself go".    Did not want to go.  Larry has the half of Galla Meadow where the two horses don't roam in such better shape.  Our pasture renter misled us to believe that he would keep it all clean.  He is not the working type.

I had forgotten how inspiring the Meadow was.  It is a lift to any dreary day.
 I water my Swamp daisies almost everyday.  Larry drilled holes in that black bucket and the water seeps out.  They need lots of water plus lots of sunshine.  I hope the seeds fall and next year there are more flowers blooming.
 Maple is turning.
 Persimmon feeding the possums.
 Ash trees turn more yellow than red, but they are pretty, too.
 This is my second grade teacher. This week I discovered that Dad's Grandfather and her Great Grandfather were brothers.  Also, Mom was related twice to her husband who died in a car wreck in 1955.  Her daughter and I graduated together and I had no idea how closely related we were.  She was always so nice and I guess I did not get that gene as I was not!

A Little Porch Sitting

Ingrid's friend had a birthday and Ingrid shared this photo of them.  
 Thanks to brother and me, Helen can do a little porch sitting.  Oh, and thanks to Greg Aday.  Helen wanted a porch swing and I told her I had an old one but it would need a welder to get it in shape.  I took it to her, Greg fixed it, and little brother attached it to the ceiling with heavy chain.  Now, Helen is set to sit!
 Little Sigrid went to a religous retreat this weekend.  I hope she gains some knowledge and has a great time.

Cyclones Win One

 I went to Kroger this morning and liked what I saw on the local sports page.  Girls showed out at Greenwood.
 Larry is liking his pallet forks.  They work really well just moving stuff around or picking things up.

New Week

 School Days 2016-17
Astrid is a junior, Ingie a freshman, and Sigrid is in the 6th grade.  I hope I get a new school picture of Greta and Clayton.

 Greta climbs on her jungle gym and then swings off on this rope, then swings back and grabs the bars again.  She loves exercise.  The other night Erin said she did 70 sit ups.
 Astrid's Cross Country team won the meet Saturday at Greenwood.  She got 5th.  I think her time was 21 minutes and 17 seconds.  Laura paid for Astrid to join a gym.  She sets her alarm and 4:45 and goes each morning and then comes back home and gets ready for school and takes Ingrid to JR
High School.  
 Here is Sigrid and some friends at ad special day at school.  She and her friends were hippies.
