School is now out for the summer, and we’re enjoying a break in our routine. The last few days have been spent sleeping in and relaxing.
The girls and I have been spending quite a bit of time in the pool. Our daily afternoon rain showers have disappeared this week, so we’ve been getting plenty of sun. We slather on the sunscreen as we try to keep the freckles from multiplying. The water temp. is over 80 degrees. Are you jealous? 🙂
Mickey is out of town visiting his Papa for a few days. He’s become a master at opening all the different gates on the ranch and is a big helper in my dad’s garden, too. He’s not bored, not with a couple of thousand head of cattle to keep him occupied. I don’t think he’s feeling homesick yet, but he is missing his sisters. Last night as we were saying our goodbyes on the phone he said, “Tell the girls I love them.” He’s such a sweet boy.
