Summer has turned very hot, our temps are up to 104 degrees today. It makes for miserable days for kids who wish they could play outside.
Jd found a small puppy out back about a month ago, and named him FLASH. He moved in, and has become a very active member of the family, with all the kids enjoying him. He has been doing pretty well on his potty training, and is growing pretty quickly. I don't know exactly how large he will be.
Then, about 2 weeks ago, a cream colored Shepard showed up in the neighborhood, and seems to think she lives here, too. Jd named her Goldie...We are still trying to decide whether she is staying, or if we will have to find another home for her. I guess it depends on her, and how she manages to get along with everyone.
Stephen and Skylar both start school next week. Stephen will be in 2nd grade at MPS campus, and Mrs. Driggers will be his teacher, he goes to meet her tonight. Skylar starts at what was Mrs. Turners on Monday, too. I don't know for sure what it is being called, since it is now run by Mrs. Turner's daughter. Will have to get the name and number, so that I can call, if I need to get in touch. Julie will be picking Skylar up, because she gets off work at about the time that Skylar gets out of school.
The garden did well, until the weather got dry, and now there is nothing left. The melons , which looked so good about 2 weeks ago, now are withered and drying up. Oh well, next year will maybe be different.
