A while back we were coming home from the, " big city", and noticed a rainbow just coming straight up from the ground . . . very unusual!
Remember the Amaryllis that I posted about a month or so ago? It blossomed again! It made me very happy, I just love them. These flowers made a total of 12 that have bloomed on this one plant. I'm going to try to keep in a cool dry spot, and hopefully, it will blossom next year - I'll keep my fingers crossed!
Last Friday, we went to the, Simplot Games, to watch my grandson compete throwing shot-put . The annual Simplot Games track-and-field meet offers high school athletes the opportunity to go head-to-head against the finest competitors among their peers in the U.S. and Canada. There were even competitors there from Australia.
Christian, my grandson, threw 47 feet, which qualified him to throw, and perhaps place the next day. He didn't place on Saturday, but did really good, considering he was competing against some of the best high school athletes in the world. We are so proud of him!
After the games, we picked Clara up to have a sleep over with grandma and grandpa. She was so excited! She has never stayed the night with us before (she had trouble sleeping in her own bed... ;0) ). But, now that she's 5, she sleeps all night in her own bed and is such a big girl!
Glow sticks are always a hit with kids and she had fun with this one.
She also sang songs to Cole, with all the hand motions . . . he was not impressed, although he loved the attention. She has always been my little grand who will just go sit on his dog bed, she loves Cole, regardless of how hairy and stinky he can get.
Cole loves the kids, but is always relieved when they go home - it's hard on this old boy. Gotta love dog noses!
Until next time!
