Corn, Pumpkins and CC

Today was a Cross Country meet in Avon Lake (about an hour from here). The JR. High kids had to be at the school by 6 am to get the bus and their race was at 8 am. Its been a long day! They did great though! They actually ran a longer distance that last week, but J cut 30 seconds of his time! YEAH!!! All the kids did pretty good and the JR high boys came in 7th place out of about 60 teams. Wednesday is our home quad meet and then Saturday we go to Tiffin. I guess there are over a hundred teams at Tiffan. I guess we have "spot holders" along the line so that parents of kids that are racing can travel to different areas and not have to worry about not getting to see their kids because of all the people. This should be fairly interesting!

Last night we wanted J to have a good meal before this morning's race. At 5, how much are you really going to feel like eating? So we had hamburgers, corn, and baked potatoes. The corn came from our garden and was the first ears we have gotten. Our weather has been so funky this summer that I am not sure how much we are going to get. Some of it is rather small and some hasn't really grown at all!

Our first ears

We also planted some pumpkins this year and we have our first pumpkins. Yeah, they are still pretty small. We MAY have some by Thanksgiving at this rate. We wanted to sell them, but I don't know if we are going to get any to sell!

Our pumpkins

And this guy was on the underside of one of the sides on our grill.

I haven't gotten any quilting done yesterday or today. Maybe later, but I think I am going to take a nap first.

PS: 7 months since Day One of surgery! I feel wonderful!
