I hope everyone enjoyed their weekend of the 4th. We had a great time with family and friends. photo PhotoGrid_1467759383342_zpse9avg4lz.jpg photo PhotoGrid_1467759490185_zpsckcxzvds.jpg  photo PhotoGrid_1467759541663_zps0m647fpa.jpg
We had plenty of food and fun and fellowship, which is the main reason we do it.

Wednesday was our fun day and me, Dallas and my mom went to Shiloh National Battlefield here close to us. It features the Battle of Shiloh during the Civil War. This is what Dallas wanted to do. It has a drive through tour and a walk through the cemetery and a museum. We packed another picnic lunch and ate by a little Creek. photo PhotoGrid_1467841517778_zps2jmsjjhe.jpg photo PhotoGrid_1467841473211_zpsmzv91sxq.jpg photo PhotoGrid_1467841633386_zpsa4ouuvjk.jpg photo PhotoGrid_1467841882652_zpsnhao8aqe.jpg photo PhotoGrid_1467841771756_zpssq5aroe5.jpg photo PhotoGrid_1467841557553_zpsfdpfi78z.jpg You can Google it’s history to read about it.

One day we came home and saw something hopping along in the driveway. Dear hubby spotted it first and recognized it was a humming bird. It was dazed and confused. Probably got knocked down by another because they like to play King of the bird feeder. I scooped it up in my hand and took it to the feeder and put its beak in the hole so it could drink. It drank and drank and drank. I didn’t know where it put it all. It gathered it’s composure and then all the sudden flew off. I was so delighted and about wet my britches. You don’t get a chance everyday to hold a Hummer. photo IMG_20160705_170700_zpsariwthaf.jpg

One evening I had everybody working. I had so much to do so I recruited help. I had Dakota dusting, Dallas doing laundry and yes I put the princess to work. I put her on cooking duty. She needs to learn to cook anyway if she’s gonna take care of Dakota so I started her out simple. Spaghetti. She cooked our supper and she did very good.  photo PhotoGrid_1467583265494_zpslqojbbqp.jpg
Daddy was busy building a new set of front steps.

It has been extremely hot this week and we have not hardly been getting any rain so we’ve had to run the sprinklers.
Tigger is doing very good and helps me all the time. She loves to ride around on my neck when she gets tired from walking.

Next week Dallas will start back with football practice for two weeks then school will be starting back. I cannot believe our summer is almost gone. Well, we’re going to enjoy it as much as possible.

I am a wife to an amazingly dedicated, devoted, and loyal husband whom God sent to me. I am a mother to two wonderful boys to whom I'd give my life for. Around here we have homeschooled, we farm, garden, hunt, fish and anything else we want to do. Although I do have Rheumatoid Arthritis. Sometimes its hard for me to keep up. If it was not for my husband and two boys, I could not do some of what I do. They really do help me alot. We work together as a team in my home. We try our best to train up our children in the fear and admonition of the Lord. Yea, they slip sometimes and correction has to be made. Thats life. I want so badly to be just like the Proverbs 31 woman. My grandmother did an awesome job of it and Id like to fill her shoes.

    I’ve been browsing online more than 4 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours.
    It’s pretty worth enough for me. Personally, if all website owners and bloggers made good content
    as you did, the net will be a lot more useful than ever
