School-Aged Yahoos

The Big Kids

Super Dooper Cooper

We have anew friend in Wammyville.  He is also my neighbor!  I get to have fun with him and learn lots of things.
 
He is always so excited when he get off the bus.

He is always full of questions

And he knows lots of answers too!

Sweet, sweet boy!

And a little bit funny too!

Ally-Wammy Day

Mondays are my 'day off'.  A day for cleaning up and getting things done.  Or sometimes a day of rest and relaxation.  I get Doodles on the bus and Cooper off the bus.  But today was a special day.  Ally got to come because she had no school and I had promised her for her birthday day that we would have a day just to ourselves for her gift from me.  She thought that was the greatest thing.  We both have been counting down the days.  She was my first Wammyville graduate.
 
I had told her that we would be cleaning and doing stuff like that.  She said that was okay.  But then she got to thinking about it and asked her mom if she thought I would have her picking up dog poop!  Nope, that is my lovely job.  She got to dust and spray Febreeze everywhere.  And she emptied trash cans.  Then we were off doing errands...the Dollar General, library, recycling, had to drop in on Pappy at work, the Post Office, and then finally to the Cincinnati Nature Center.  According to Ally Pally, she has never been on a hike.  Even though her dad takes her on nature hikes in the woods near their house.
 
But before anything else was done she got to collect eggs...well the egg.

She checked out everything new in the yard.  I think she likes it.
 



She must have told me 500 times that she loved me.  Makes this Wammy's heart happy.


The off to the Nature Center we went.

Selfie at our picnic lunch.

She was in charge of navigation.

Best quarter I ever spent...food for the turtles and the fish.
 




We'd love to know what this is.

Signing a trail journal.
 



Look at the size of that acorn!






Looks like someone is getting tired.
 

A really cool willow tree tunnel.












 
We had a great day!  Thinking this might be a great tradition to start...birthday outings with Wammy.
 

Indiana Soccer Days

Headed down the Interstate for a big soccer weekend with the grands.
 
But first things first.  Cassie found out last minute about a little burg down the road from her...city wide yard sale!  And I didn't have but $40 in my pocket.  So I must be very selective.  Saw lots of great things.  Had a bowl of beans and cornbread made on site by the Boy Scouts.  Of course I had some!

And my treasures for $1

Then we are off to Alaire's soccer game.








 
After the games the fans make a tunnel and both teams run through.  Great fun!
 
We had a little time between games...just enough to eat at CFL.


Coach Trevor couldn't make it because the youth were going Thrift store Bowling.   So his Asst. Coach did coaching duties.  Love the new bench.
 


We were told before the game that a storm was coming from the west and if any of us saw lightening we were to call out.  The wind began to blow.  The sky got darker and darker.  The air got cooler and you could smell the rain coming.









Game called due to lightening.
 
We made it to a table at Puccini's just about the time the storm hit.  I was surprised that we didn't lose electricity.  It was a gully washer!

Sunday Morning we went to early church.  Trevor preached.  Afterwards I met a really nice man that we share mutual friends...the Roberts family in WI.  The Alaire set up a little eatery while we waited for who know what...I think time to come around to lunch.

Lunch.  Then it was time to pack up and head home. 

Michael had a few nosebleeds over the weekend.  And a pretty good one on the way home.  So he spent the trip back with 'something' stuck up his nose.  He had no idea what I was jamming up there.  He would croak if he knew!
