Sorry I’ve been missing in action for a bit but we’ve been a little busy.
I am so excited, I bought (well, will be paying for) a new sewing machine. It is for my birthday but I wanted it early. Really early since my bday is not til July. Lol. I am still learning it. It is a sewing/embroidery machine. I don’t know the first thing about embroidery but I’m going to learn.
I’m also excited because I got a new pair of fabric shears. Well, I had two pair but you know how it is when kids get a hold of them to use them for other things.
Believe me when I say I have these under lock and key now.
Jossie and Dakota have been busy painting and getting the nursery ready in their house.
Well, Poppie went with Jossie the other day to see the baby. I’m glad he did. He didn’t get to go last visit. He got to see her big head, big feet, and pudgy belly like his. She’s got long legs already. She will be her father’s child. Lol. Poppie got a little teary eyed. I think he was excited. Bless it.
Dakota has started his first Boilermakers job. He is doing really good so far and getting to do his classes online too. He now knows what daddy has gone through all these years and the sacrifices he made for them to provide for us. We are so proud of him and Jossie.
Dallas has started his 8th grade project which will be on Primitive Skills. He gets to have a partner. They caught a coon in the trap and will be tanning and preserving the hide to make something with. He will practice on small game before I let him loose with deer hides.
Also we had their Athletic Banquet at school. These boys are something else.
I learned I’m not as young as I use to be. Dallas had some friends over for a camp out for his birthday. Yea, I squeezed 7 boys into my truck. As they were loading, one teacher asked me did I really know what I was doing. I said yes. Then two more showed up by way of their parents. So, I ended up with 9 Jr high kids. We had a bonfire and ate chilli dogs and roasted marshmallows. Then the temp started dropping more. They were bound and determined they were going to sleep outside in their tents. Three were not going to brave it so they stayed on playing video games. Two fell asleep on the couch. Four were outside in the tent. This was around midnight. I dozed off and woke up at 2:30 am. I got up and checked on everybody. When I stepped outside I was scared to death when I felt how cold it was. 26 degrees. I ran to the tent and unzipped it and was afraid I was going to find froze to death kids. Well, needless to say they were trying to be brave but when Dallas said he couldn’t feel his toes we all agreed for them to come in. So we’re eating again at 3:00 am. At 4:30 am I’m unstopping a toilet. Yep, chilli. Stinky boys. By 5:30am they are all waiting on the first glimpse of daylight so they can have an airsoft war. They came in and ate breakfast then we had to start cleaning up and getting kids home cause daddy was on his way home. They had an awesome time and I could not have asked for a better group of guys. They were all well mannered. I am the cool mom by the way.
Dallas has been working hard in karate still. He has been working with one of his friends.
He had class yesterday and is still sore. It was all judo. I can always make him feel better with Subway. Lol
Here is your Silver Sunday
