One of the big things in the news this morning was the need to pass laws to make restaurant owners post calorie info on their menus – as if that will keep people from being overweight. Are people really so ignorant? Do they not know that a Big Mac has more calories than a salad? Is posting such information going to change things? It makes me think our whole education system has failed.
I kept the GGs on Friday. The Piper and the Royals joined us for fun on the farm. It was wild times at the Lazy B. Jesse went to Arkansas with friends to do some sewing for the friend’s future baby. Yes, Jesse can sew – she makes beautiful quilts and has made her father several Hawaiian style shirts. Her hope chest runneth over. Toby and I drove over to WF for some shopping. We dropped by my nephew’s soccer game. The weather was warm, but windy.
I always enjoy my time with just Toby. It seems more and more, we have lots of together time. It is a different season in our life. I like it. I like being able to travel and do whatever we want. But if I had my way, I would have my kids with me. I miss having Bo and Jes riding in the backseat sharing great moments in our life. Don’t get me wrong. I love it that Bo is married and has his own family. More than anything, I want that for Jesse, too. You know how I love my GGs. I am truly amazed when someone says that they cannot wait to send their children off to school or that they could never have homeschooled because they could not spend that much time with their children. To me, the time with my children was short. I am very thankful for that precious time. One of my biggest regrets in this life is that I did not have more kids. I may have to go rent one.
