Charger played his first soccer games as a Bobcat this morning. Who knew we had to move to the Farm (that's really a Ranch) to get on a winning team??? Poor kid has never landed on a team that wins games -- until now. They won both games this morning 4-0 and 6-1.
Since my internet isn't cooperating here at the Farm that is really a Ranch, I thought I would take a chance and just post photos. If the internet continues to work, I'll try to add captions so they will even make some sense! :-)
This is Matt's calf - Sally Mae. She is now hand-fed and loves to be scratched.
This is one of many "mamas" - we named her Dunce Cap!

Matt's First Rabbit - He Couldn't be Happier!
That's all for now. I need to download and then if the internet holds out - I will post more.
The boys and I stopped in Memphis on our way to Nashville and then onto Washington D.C. My nephew and his wife live there, so we crashed with them for a night. THANKS GUYS!
I had planned to take the boys to Graceland - every kid needs to meet The King!!! But, the timing just didn't work out. We still had 3-4 hours to kill before heading to meet the hubster in Nashville though.
Shelby Farms had a new park that I had heard was great - the Woodland Discovery Playland. So, we headed there for the afternoon. My kids are getting a bit old for playgrounds, but this one looked like it might have activities for their ages.
It was GREAT!!!
Three Story Tower Slide
Huge pit for sliding and climbing.
The design was just so cool. They have all these circular "cages" which they will grow vines onto. They also serve to feed kids into the various play areas.
Huge area with kid-powered swings and rides.
And this great climbing area which went high and low - in and out!
We've had A LOT going on lately. We took a trip to Nashville and Washington, D.C. which involved a 25 hour straight drive home, we've updated the RV oh so much more, and my youngest...well...he's broken...
He and Viper were playing on the trampoline, and apparently they lost track of whose turn it was to jump into the middle. Both jumped in, backwards, and Vipers head slammed into Charger's arm and broke both bones.
Long story short - the ER told us he'd probably need surgery so to see an orthopedic doc ASAP. We saw the highly recommended doc the next day, were told he didn't need surgery, got the cast the next week, then learned that it was put on improperly.
Onto the next orthopedic doc who said that surgery was now indeed necessary, and we are scheduled for that next Tuesday. Hopefully, after that, we will be onto just what you expect -- break an arm, cast it, and get on with complaining about being stuck in a cast!
