Thought I'd blog a bit about my busy weekend. On Friday and Saturday, I had the privilege of going to my first MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers) Leadership Summit. It was super fun. This is a picture of the eight of us in leadership who were able to go this year. In fact, it is a blog post on its own. So, stay tuned... While I was away at MOPS, Michael recovered enough from the flu bug to go hunting on Saturday. The only thing he bagged was a three-wheeler and its drunk 21-year old rider. Michael was going around a blind corner and this guy (who wasn't wearing a helmet) came at him going fast and completely out of control. PTL, Michael was able to bring the truck to a complete stop before the three-wheeler and it's rider hit smack dab into the corner of the pick-up. If Michael had been moving, the guy would probably be dead or hurt very badly. As it was, he came away from the accident with only bruises, scrapes and a concussion. Michael and his friend, suspected that the kid had been drinking, along with the rest of his buddies who where following him. Sure enough, the kid, his father (who drove him to the hospital) and another friend who followed, all got DUIs. We can't drive our truck because we don't have lights on that side. We are waiting on the insurance company to let us know who is going to pay for the repairs. In the meantime, Michael is riding the Harley to work so I can have the Subaru to take Josiah to his swim lessons. Very annoying!!! So glad the kid is not seriously hurt, but at the same time, I'm very angry at his stupidity and how it is inconveniencing us. URRGGHHH! So glad that at least he and some of his buddies got busted with a DUI.Sunday, when I got home, I planted some strawberries that my mom gave me in our garden. Michael said he is going to make me a strawberry box around them. Our radishes and turnips are coming up! It is nice to experience a success. Hope they stay healthy and alive!Michael worked on raking and re-seeding the backyard.I helped our elderly neighbors dig up a rhubarb plant. They gave me four chunks of the root to start my own rhubarb in my garden, plus enough rhubarb stalks to last me the year. I think I got two dozen cups of rhubarb frozen. I slice them in my Cuisnart food processor and freeze them in two cup increments. Great in my Any-Fruit Crisp recipe.Josiah and Hailey were having a picnic today in their fort and were sitting with their arms around each other. They started begging me to take a picture of them, so how could I refuse? They truly are best friends. Hope it stays that way. Even though they bicker sometimes, they love each other fiercely.
Thanks to each of you who prayed I wouldn't get the flu. I seemed to be the only one to escape in our household. Even my mom and step-dad got it when they watched the kids for me this weekend. Luckily it was fast moving.
Hope you all had a wonderful weekend. I look forward to catching up with your blogs this week.
