Senior Show and Kites

Fall is finally here, and the weather is beginning to cooperate. Today I have the windows open, and it is very nice outside.

We got a bit of a storm on Sunday afternoon. It had been still and hot all day - downright miserable outside! The GGs came over bringing their kite to fly. They were disappointed that there was no wind to be had. So, I got the four-wheeler and let them drive around the pasture. They are finally old enough to ride without me. I don't mind riding them around, but it was hot, and my allergies have been off the chart. About the time they got bored with the four-wheeler, it started getting dark to the north of us. Then a big wind came up. Rather than running for the house, the GGs begged to fly the kite. After all, the lightning was still off in the distance. So we got out the kite. It flew great! The GGs laughed and were very silly especially when the whale kite would take a dive into the sea of grass. Here are some pics. This last one was taken just as big drops of rain started to splatter us. Notice how dark it was. Bo was helping the girls real in the whale. Then the heavens opened up and the rain fell. Hallelujah!

I also have some photos from Jesse's senior show. Her friends Lindz and Kat were there too. It was a good show, and she got lots of attention - probably due to the newspaper article or maybe the white dress she was wearing.
 Here is my favorite coyote and mouse - the coyote's whiskers wiggle as do the hands of the mouse.  Click on link to see video of tail.
 Here is her birds and prairie dog. The raccoon pinching the turtle's wiggling tail was a favorite.
Here is the rabbit with moveable ears and the rabbit with a wiggling tail. You can see her prints behind the rabbit sculptures.
One of the favorite prints is to the left of the rabbit sculpture. This print is called "Do You See What I Hear?"

After the show, we went to my mom's for pizza and beer.
