What’s goin’ on ’round here….Posted: June 25, 2013 | |
Last Thursday we went to First Bank & Trust Company’s Ice Cream Social. They have it every year to say thanks to their customers and kick off the summer. I think I’ve missed it twice in my 28 years. Other than the yummy homemade ice cream, Chester the Clown does a show for the kids. He has been coming for 21 years, and the ice cream social has been going on for 30. My mom used to work at the bank and she and a co-worker started the social!
Let’s just say Matt is NOT a fan of Chester….he didn’t care for Santa either. The other cuties, besides little Miss Diva Annie, are my niece Kennedy and nephew Dylan.
Annie likes Chester.
Two of my favorite bank ladies here…the one on the left is Melanie. We’ve been best friends since 4th grade and that is her sis Shelbi. Melanie is expecting a baby girl in August and she and Annie will be BFFs. No doubt.
Friday, I went to a STEM (science, technology, engineering, & mathematics) conference at OSU. It was good and I learned a lot….however, this implementation of Common Core has my head spinning!
Saturday, we ventured down to Edmond to watch dad work the Liberty Fest Rodeo. It was quit the adventure with all four of use staying in our small living quarters in the horse trailer. Needless to say, I won’t be rodeoing with TJ until our youngest is oh say 3-4. I was EXHAUSTED!
Matt also made the Daily Oklahoma newspaper…I love this pic!
Meanwhile all of this is going on, my cabinets are getting a makeover (not by me, too tedious!)
And we are still working on painting the trim and shutters outside.
Sometimes we need a break so we go for a swim! Someday I’ll have a big pool, but for now this will work.
