Calgon....take me away!

The corn is planted-whew! Started on soybeans yesterday. Almost all of the cows and calves have been hauled to pasture. I need a break!!!! Oh yeah, I just had one last weekend...oops. We have been putting in 12-14 hour days and it seems like it was weeks ago that I had a break.



Good news....got an e-mail yesterday letting us know that both Jeremy and Courtney made it on the South Dakota Shooting Sports Team. They will be competing at Nationals. Jeremy in Air Pistol and Courtney in .22 Pistol. This year the Nationals are in Grand Island, Nebraska. I guess we will be taking a vacation this summer after all!



I have some time tonight so I am off to sit in the hot tub......ahhhhhh!

I agree Calgon take me away! I soaked in a hot tub last night, man I needed it! I love summer, but sometimes the days just wear you out!
Way to go kids! You should be so proud of them!
Hoping that you get to take your relaxing bath!

Yes, I know how busy it is this time of year. We have been getting rain and we are not done with corn or beans. Congratulations to your children on going to Nationals. Good luck to them.

Love and Hugs,

Did you happen to see my girls at the track meet today?
A high school girl that babysits for us wanted to bring them to the track meet with her today...my girls LOVED it!

Hopefully you got to relax a little. We were at 110 degrees 2 days ago and today the high was 56! Our horses don't know if they should be in the shade because of the sun or the rain! :)

Courtney is cute as a button.

I haven't got the time for Calgon. If I had enough time to do that, I think I'd be using it to get a massage. Boy, could I use one of those. lol

Congrats on the kids making the "cut" and getting to the National event. That sounds pretty cool. But is it really hot in Nebraska that time of year?

Oh girl, yeah...a hot tub is just what you deserve...you make me feel very lazy!

Jodi said...

Oh - the hot tub sounds great. I'll be over...hah! Great job in shooting sports. Make SD proud.
