We DID go visit our neighbor, Miss Judy and the girls got to meet her new doggie, Millie. Millie (a yorkiepoo, I think) was rather overwhelmed by all the attention, but handled it relatively well, and of course we always enjoy visiting with Miss Judy.
When we were preparing for campmeeting, we got a firepit, in hopes of being able to use it while we were "camping" at campmeeting, but that didn't work out (the girls' busy schedule and the size of the campsites, both made it impractical). But, since I'd been wanting a firepit for here at home anyway, it wasn't a big deal. So we finally got to try out our firepit Friday night. We sent the girls out into the woods for wood, and got a nice fire going. The girls had a blast roasting hotdogs and marshmallows for supper. While collecting wood they also collected blackberries so we had them too. Not the healthiest supper in the world, but everyone had a good time, and it was yummy, so it's all good. We did determine that the retractable roasting forks from Target's $1 section are too flimsy to really work well, so will be investing in some better ones, which I suspected would be the case, but figured at $1 a piece they were worth a shot LOL.
So anyway, they're pretty proud of their creations. At first they decided they were opening a "store" but I finally convinced them to change it to a "mud creations museum" and let me just take pictures of them and their creations.
Our printer broke a couple months ago and we finally replaced it this week, woo-hoo!! I'm so excited to be able to start putting together my calendar/planner for 2011-2012, woo-hoo!! I had, and liked, a planner from www.simplycharlottemason.com this past year, but thanks to my handy dandy proclick binding machine, I decided to try making my own for this next year, we shall see . . . LOL.
