Around the Meadow

Greeeeeeen Acres is the place for me!

Does anyone remember that show?  I remember seeing reruns growing up.  

Here is dear hubby riding the new John Deer for the first time.  Most of our yard is still dirt, but the portion undisturbed by construction has grass.  I rode on it last night and cut the side yard, it was a lot of fun.  I was "hee hawing" and "yippee ki yaying".  The little one took a video of me being goofy, but I won't share it with you here. 

The "new addition" (puppy) is taking center stage in all our lives.  Look at the grin on dear son's face.  I had to share his happiness with you "guys".  Isn't he handsome?  And he has a sweet heart to boot.  We are so very thankful for this little boy in our lives.  

I started a small crochet project.  But, as you can see, I haven't gotten very far.  

I found this pretty stitch pattern in Robyn Chachula's Crochet Encyclopedia.  Dear hubby gave me the book when it first came out, but I haven't had the time to really enjoy playing around with the pretty stitches in her book yet.  

End of school review and prepping for standardized testing is high on the agenda.  This is pretty much what my kitchen table has looked like this week.  
Once testing is over, we'll be done with school for the year!  


Hope you are enjoying a marvelous week.  

Giving God the Glory for the great things He has done!

    1. Thanks Pammy Sue and thanks for the info on the zoom lens. :-)

  5. Such wonderful blessings you have :-) Your son is so handsome and looks so happy with his puppy. Good luck with your testing; we're schooling over the summer because of the amount of breaks I've had to take.
