Julianne was so proud of herself! She caught these two kittens all on her own! (that's Otis on the left, and Candy on the right)
Tonight, Dallas attended a birthday party for one of his best friends and classmates, Dylan. It was a sports theme party with an indoor batting cage, basketball courts, and arcade games.
My aunt did a coloring contest on her "Thirty-One" page this week. I printed off the picture for me to complete, and when Reba saw it, she had to have one too. She really took her time and carefully picked her colors, and I think it turned out beautifully.
Unfortunately, Sha had recently turned onry/mean. It got to the point where Dallas was afraid to go into the coop to help with chores. With the current ban on selling chickens (because of the bird flu this summer), Doug explained to Dallas that our option was for Daddy to kill the little rooster. Dallas said he understood and was fine with it. Dallas did ask that we take one last picture of him.
Just for fun, I looked back and found these pictures from the first summer (2013) we had Sha.
Reba asked a few weeks ago (maybe a month ago) if I would curl her hair again once it got long enough. I explained to her that it was already long enough, we just had to find the time to do it! I curled it over Labor Day weekend, and quickly realized I needed more of the larger rollers. I finally remembered to pick up another pack this past week while in town, so that meant it was time to try it again!
Her buddy, Calvin, complimented how nice her hair looked as soon as he got in the van this morning, and the principal also raved about it in the drop off line. When she got home this afternoon, she said quite a few of her friends and other teachers also said they liked her curls. Now, we'll have to find another night that I get her through the bath early enough that there is time to roll all that hair before bedtime!
Daddy has been gone all week, but today he was off! Momma put him (and the kiddos) to work digging the sweet potatoes...
The ground was so dry and hard to dig since we haven't had a decent rain all month, so Daddy did all the digging! It wasn't our best crop of sweet taters, but I'm sure we are going to have plenty to get us through the year. And we will have enough to make some baby food for Number 4.
After we were done digging, we went to check on the fruit trees. Unfortunately, our peach trees produced absolutely nothing this year. (Insert sad face) Our apple tree on the other hand, put on a handful of apples. One looked perfect, so Dallas picked it!
He was teasing that he was going to eat it, but it is sitting in the fridge waiting to be shared.
