Hi All!
Back from a weekend of riding dirt bikes and atv's on the sand dunes just out of Rexburg, Id.  We had a great time... a little scary but mostly fun.
Started with a football game in Drummond.  Our boys lost... :-( but they played hard and didn't give up.  Brandon had a 61 yard run... ended with a leg cramp, but was a heck of a go down the field! 

Road for 2 days.  It's quite strange... sand dunes out in the middle of Idaho scrub brush... and beautiful white sands... no dust.  It was very loose as it's been hot and dry there for sometime.  The skies were clear and blue.  

Sunday was my birthday.  We had a great dinner! Rib steak, corn on the cob & red beans and rice.  Then we went to Dairy Queen and I got my favorite Blizzard ~ Banana Split.
We came home Monday in time for the JV Football game.  They played valiantly but didn't quite pull it out.
Didn't have much time for stitching or quilting or much of any kind of handwork so nothing new to show on that front.
Until later,

Wow! Summer's over and School is here with a BANG!

I don't know about you, but time sure flies!!!
School has started.  I have 2 high schoolers and one is a senior! He's in Football... GO HAWKS!

I'm also Booster Club president (I just can't say no) and Homecoming is 2 weeks earlier than last year... I'm also the adviser for our high school pep club "The LOUD CROWD!" and we met for the first time this week.  We have been working on fliers, parade permits, school spirit ideas... and it's canning season, and bow season just opened, and, and, and!!! lol  I've made raspberry jam (has to be seedless for spoiled man of house!) and fruit jam ... what's in fruit jam... anything that's on the counter that you don't have enough of by itself! lol... plum/apricot/peach/raspberry jam! Working on cherry jelly and applesauce today! YUM! :)

My niece and s-i-l came up over Labor Day Weekend.  I'm taking her senior pictures... she's so beautiful! This is my favorite one so far... 
I've done a little stitching and a little quilting... Sail Away is almost finished...

We had family here over the weekend... had a campfire... made sh'mores and my niece bought some magic color stuff... what a pretty fire!  

Until later have a great weekend!

9/11 don't forget the fallen... never forget the hurt... pray for the families, pray for our country, pray for those who wish us harm...
