I am a farm girl, married to my high school sweetheart. We grew up on farms 9 miles apart and went through 12 years of school together. I liked him in grade school, but it took until we were Juniors in high school to get him interested in me as more than a friend. I have never lived more than 10 miles from home, except in college, but have travelled as far as France, Germany and Switzerland. We live on our own farm and have raised three of our six kids. The last three are growing up fast.
W. was in a play called The Taming of La'Rue, a western take on The Taming of the Shrew.
M. was supposed to be in the musical "Schoolhouse Rock!" this year, but her dance recital performance conflicted. It made her sad, but she showed up and enjoyed some of the practices and the dress rehearsal before she had to leave for her own performance.
The last upper school play was a series of Aesop's fables.
We enjoyed another year of Bible School. I estimate I have helped with our Bible School about 30 years. The last couple of years we have been splitting the kids into one older and one younger class each for lesson time and craft time. I have done all the crafts these last two years, which I love. Although she is still in a wheelchair after a car accident, sister-in-law and buddy Betty and her fabulous daughters helped me this year, and were life savers.
May began with a bang. Planting began, and Sir Paul McCartney came to town! We were lucky enough to get tickets with these great friends!
These guys went too. And also J and a friend.
He gives quite an amazing concert.
Later the same week, we saw guitar legend Joe Bonamassa in concert. Samantha and I bought tickets in Novemeber for our guys's birthdays. When we bought them we didn't know Mc Cartney would be in town the same week, OR that we would get tickets. A and L got to go too, compliments of free tickets J won on the radio a day before the concert.
