I have a couple of minutes before lunch is on the table to post about our weekend.
Clint and Brandon picked up their first vehicle to be scrapped. They have another one to pick up tonight with two more lined up. Brandon is saving the money he makes off of it for his future. It gives them something the two of them can do together too.
Emily and I went along and met the such a sweet lady. Her name is Dinah and she knows my family in Chesapeake. She loves to fish on Bailey Creek, which was named for my paternal family. She held Emily for the longest time and ended up giving her many hugs and kisses before she handed her back over to me.
We ran the errands and did the grocery shopping. We ate out at Ruby Tuesdays and enjoyed a nice, big salad with our sandwiches.
Clint worked on a patch to the roof for a spot that has been leaking.
We went to Tyndall's Point Park and had some fun there. Then we headed to Powhatan's Chimney so the children could see that. We took pictures and will put those up as we get time
Amanda made fried ice cream for everyone again with the leftovers from where we had it last week.
Amanda found a farrier's tool in the ground while she was in the barn with Hot Shot. It looks pretty old. She's always digging up some "artifact" or another around here. Hot Shot got a bath. He likes his baths, but gets in a mood about being tied up. As soon as she untied him, he took off for the barn while snubbing her affections.
Emily has been in her 2 month growth spurt-right on time! She's been eating every two hours during the day and eating once or twice at night. I am pretty tired from it and can honestly say it's been draining..pun intended! She's grown noticeably.
Luke 15:4-7 What man of you, having an hundred sheep, if he lose one of them, doth not leave the ninety and nine in the wilderness, and go after that which is lost, until he find it? And when he hath found it, he layeth it on his shoulders, rejoicing. And when he cometh home, he calleth together his friends and neighbours, saying unto them, Rejoice with me; for I have found my sheep which was lost. I say unto you, that likewise joy shall be in heaven over one sinner that repenteth, more than over ninety and nine just persons, which need no repentance.
