My kids love a good rainbow, but a double rainbow required a picture. This is not all that rare of a beauty around here. We may have some not so awesome cold weather around here, but we do have some breathtaking sights that help to even out the score. So grateful for where we live!
Cole's flag football season finished up. He had a great time and we had fun watching him. He really learned a lot and had a great coach! Thank you Greg Packer! He did have one rather humorous play. They passed the ball to him which he caught nicely. He started to run only to realize that two very large boys were coming after him. Although it is flag football, getting the flag usually ends up in a tackle. Seeing these two boys coming toward him, Cole turned around and ran the other way! The wrong way! We all got a good laugh out of that!
The kids were thrilled about being out of school for harvest break. Two weeks of no school and nonstop fun with cousins. Grandma makes harvest a party I tell you! She had the kids out to ride in the truck with her right off. They loved it of course and begged to go out every day. Grandma has activities each day of harvest for the kids who aren't old enough to work yet. She insists on "making memories"! I wish I was better about taking pictures of all this hoopla. Those kids made doughnuts, suckers, and cookies. They cleaned out the garden one day and rode four wheelers to their hearts content. They love Harvest, I on the other hand remember it as dreadfully long days with extreme heat and fierce cold. I remember dirt boogers, working late nights and being up early in the morning. I also remember being so sick of eating cold sandwiches that I would rather go hungry. My kids are going to have a rude awakening to what "spud harvest" really is once they are old enough.
