Lazy Summer Days

Well, maybe not.  We tend to fill the days with stuff pretty quickly around here.

Papa Bear and I took the kids to our local rodeo on Thursday night.  People are always amazed that our little town is on the professional rodeo circuit.  It was a fun night out.  BooBoo liked the bareback & saddle bronc riders and the bull riders.  Bucking horses, cowboys face down in the dirt, wild looking bulls-what’s not to love? insert laugh track here.  Ditty got to attend with one of her school friends.  They had VIP seats right over the top of the chutes, so they got to see the cowboys get on the horses/bulls and probably overheard a few conversations (hopefully they were clean ones).

We spent Father’s Day with my inlaws, just enjoying a laid back day with no running around.  Then after we got home, it was time for a popcorn and movie night.

The last few mornings, the kids and I have been busting our backs working in the garden.  Pulling weeds, most of them grasses, and making sure to get all the roots out as well.  Feels like sod busting the way the roots are so matted underground.  If the weather clears up today, I think we’ll hit the beach for a while this afternoon.  They sure deserve it.  I just hope all this is helping me lose weight because I’ve been way too exhausted to even take a walk.

"If you are what you should be you will set the whole world on fire."
St. Catherine of Sienna

I finally understand

"Among those around you, apostolic soul, you are the stone fallen into the lake. With your word and your example, you produce a first circle, and it another, and another, and another, wider each time. Now do you understand the greatness of your mission?" St. Josemarie Escriva: The Way
