Boys-pool

There’s something wrong with this picture. The younger, smaller brother is on the bottom.

A busy time around here, so this post is mostly pictures. I have two boys staying with me until June 27, and you know, it’s easy to forget how much space children take. My grandsons always come for the Posse Rodeo, which is held in June. Every year I ask if they still like going to the rodeo, and they say yes. I keep hoping…

Being a long-distance grandmother, I work hard at doing things with them and exposing to many types of things. Some are just a given every year, some fall out of favor, and things are added. The swim party at my sister’s is one of the givens. When the boys were younger, the older cousins could throw them across the pool. That’s no longer possible, as the older brother is now 13 and 5’10”–hard to believe. Swords

We saw the Samurai exhibit at the Kimbell and a filmĀ there about making and using Samurai swords. I’m sure you know what they wanted to do when they got home. We went to the Museum of Science for Reel Adventure and the Indiana Jones exhibit.

Today I drove them to visit south of here. Seeing the flowers in bloom Liatris was good for the soul. I don’t think I’ve ever seen liatris like this before. Even though we’re in a drought situation, these flowers are really Pasture showing off. I love the pasture of Indian blanket and liatris.

And there is the fairy church–no not a church for fairies, at least I don’t think so.–but for the almost-ghost town of Fairy, Texas.

Zane-spinning

We’ve also tried out a little spinning (ahem!), they got to do some welding with their grandfather, and a little gardening.
