My Work Here is never done!!

SO we had a very nice 4th of July. There was a flag raising and breakfast at the church which was nice. The Bishopric did a great job making andgetting the food out fast. They fed a lot of people. Then we came home and did house and yard work. Lynn rearranged the garage. It needed cleaning anyway but I wasn't getting to it very fast. It looks great now. Then we had a BBQ. Grandpa came over. Grandma wasn't feeling well. Then just before we do fireworks we always bring our dogs in the house because they scare easily. We go out to get them and they are no where to be seen. Some neighbors down the road started lighting them early!! The dogs took off somewhere. WE searched but to no avail. So we lighted our fireworks and prayed really really hard that the dogs would come back. I now wonder if that was such a good idea. They showed up at 3 a.m. full of ticks. So yesterday, Britni and I, pulled ticks out of each dog. Mandy our bigger white dog had over 100 and Misty the little black one probably had over 30. We are still finding ticks on them even after bathing them and using Fronline Plus on them and even feeding them lots of garlic. I heard that is suppose to help with ticks. Still this morning I was pulling more off of them. I don't know if it will ever end. I do know that I never want to see another tick again!! UGH!!

Britni has a Basketball Tournament in Mabton this weekend. Then she is done with Basketball for the Summer, I think. She will still have soccer practice though.

The Pioneer Trek is next Weekend. The kids are excited. I got Britni's skirt fixed and ready. It's not the best sewing job. I used to sew better but I don't do it often enough anymore to be any good at it. Good thing they only need to wear it for 3 days.

Daniel loved Boy Scout Camp. Even though it rained on him for 3 of the days. It was on the coast so he got to go to the beach. He got the Canoeing, Oceanography and Archery Merit Badges. He will have the First Aid one soon. All he had to do was #1 but he kept forgetting to do it at camp. So now he has to finish it off here. However, He also got his First Class!!! He is now a Star!! Yea!! He now sees a silver lining. He is actually picking out merit badges that he will do and everything. I am so happy!!! :) YEA Daniel!!! :)

Well, I better get going. I need to crack the whip and get the kids to do their chores. Have a great day. :)
