The Usual

Our weekend was pretty much the usual - work on the house. I did keep the GGs on Friday for a few hours. They were entertaining as usual. They have been telling knock-knock jokes that make no sense. At one point, they gave me a list of words and phrases that they are NOT allowed to say anymore - including : poop, pee, and what the heck. What the heck! I'm betting that they used the word poop in their knock-knock jokes, and therefore the word got banned. We took a little walk in their neighborhood, and played a little kick-the-can. My dad started this game with us back when we were kids. Whenever we had to walk somewhere, we would pick out a can or rock to kick - it was sort of a soccer/keep-away type game. Dad thought it was funny that the toes of my shoes were always worn out. GBN2 really got into the game - great fun!

Saturday we grouted and grouted some more. My fingers, wrists, arms, knees, buttocks, etc. are very sore today. Jesse hasn't been home much to help us since school started, but we used her good while she was home this weekend. We got Lindz to come over on Thursday and help a bit, which was fun. Toby called her "the good daughter." Jesse is a good daughter too.

Sunday after church we went to Bo's soccer game. It was his first game of the season - a new soccer league in Duncan. He is the coach - sort of. They lost - big time, but it was still a good time for those watching. The afternoon was beautiful - a perfect fall day. A whole group of us sat out in our lawn chairs and cheered and laughed and visited. The GGs were there, of course, making things even more fun. I'm looking forward to the whole soccer season. I'd post pictures, but I think Jesse has my camera cord. What else is new?

I still like to play that "kick the can" game too - even by myself.

It sounds like ya had a good and productive weekend. Our WX was great this weekend as well, but we went back into the 90s on Sunday and yesterday. I'm still waiting for Fall...

We have some banned words with our granddaughter, too. I am so stubborn and rebellious that it makes me wanna use them even more. I raised three boys, and bathroom humor was the ultimate. I have no clue how to raise little ladies.

I used to play kick the can when I was walking home from school. Boy that brings back some memories!

Buck, Our weather has gone warm, but not nearly what it was all summer. I can live with it, but I am looking forward to a real fall.

Joyce, I'm a bit rebellious too. I can see myself in GBN2, who seems to think saying poop is very funny.

Becky, It brought back a lot of memories for me too. I also played kick the can walking home from school.
