Busy Weekend

We had a busy weekend. Boy kiddo #1 (13) had his second beef weigh in for the year. He is raising two steers to show in the county fair. Joe weighed in at 776 pounds and Moe weighed 714 pounds. They are well on their way!

Girl kiddo #3 (8) and girl kiddo #4 (6.9) are on the same soccer team. They had their first game of the spring season Saturday morning. The weather was yucky, but the girls didn’t mind a bit. Kiddo #3 scored two goals, and kiddo #4 loved being on defense. Kiddo #1 also had a game around noon.

Saturday evening we went out to Blodgett and participated in a community fundraiser. It was a potluck, each serving cost .10, followed by a desert auction. The proceeds went to the Bill Ayers Memorial Scholarship. It was great to see people we hadn’t seen for awhile and spend time with Grandma and Peepaw.

After a great sermon on Sunday, we took three of the kids to Paul’s Place for lunch (kiddo #1 was at a youth group activity). Sunday was the last day for Paul’s Place. After twenty-something years Paul decided to through in the towel. It was packed, like the entire town of Philomath had shown up for the event. It took over an hour to get our food, but we didn’t care. Brownies were passed out to the customers, making boy kiddo #2 (11) very happy. What a great time! Congratulations Paul!

Have a great week,
