Summer = chaos

  The chaos of summer vacation has arrived!

The week started off relaxing enough.
So much so that I made the first rhubarb pie of the season and two batches of rhubarb jam.
Wasn't sure about making the jam with no strawberries, but hey how can you go wrong when the recipe calls for 3 cups of rhubarb and 5 cups of SUGAR?!

A stellar Baseball victory in a nearby town!
The boys were totally on! 
6 to 0!

Caden has been in a basketball camp everyday this week in a town about an hour south of here. 
They have an excellent program reinforcing skills and teaching the kids drills/plays they'll really be able to use come basketball season. 
Glad we've got good friends who offered to pick Caden up and haul him there and back since I had to work and couldn't take any time off to do it.

Yes snakes have been found.
This appears to be a non-poisonous garter snake.
Even so -YUCK!

Spent last night at our local Fair grounds
Deal of the day - $15 wristbands to ride all the rides from 4 to 8p.

I really enjoyed myself - visiting with the lovely Sherri for the better part of two hours, the incredibly shrinking woman Krissy for about an hour and other various folks I know.

We had some big booming storms last night and got a little more than an inch of rain.
All this wet has sure been havoc on the farmers. 
The field next door still has not been planted, which is good for me and Chyann since we can go out and goof around and not have to worry about staying on the edges, but not too great for the guys that farm it.

Never have heard back from the folks that looked at Casper last week. 
Which is ok, there are other avenues to explore. 

Hoping to get out and ride this weekend. 

Colton made it through his first week back to work tired and worn out. 
He is bouncing back nicely though. 

 All else is well here in the land of milk and honey.
Happy Staurday to ya :)

Just getting caught up on my blog reading! Wow lots going on, summer is definitely not a parents down time.
I don't know whether to be happy or sad for you that you haven't heard from your prospective buyers...
