Z: Mama I’m cold.
Me: Me too. We forgot our jackets didn’t we?
Z: We need to stand in the sun.
After we leave headed to the car (in the sun)
Z: Mama, I’m still cold…this sun is cold.
We sure did get used to the Texas sun.
And now that they are back I am glad that they are back.
Thanks for all your prayers for us.
Talk to you later,
The 13th was a nice relaxing day. I got some pictures of the animals hanging around here.
Hummer the llama. He was extremely skittish when he came here but he is has been trusting people a lot more and venturing further in his field.
(Oops…I forgot to post this last night. Here is yesterday…)
Every day we have woke up since being here Zoe excitingly exclaims “Mama! The SUN is out!” It’s the best start to her day.
Mason and Zoe in the sandbox. You have to get out there first thing in the morning to beat the heat. It’s in a great position too to be in the shade.
We got a wonderful treat today! Greg’s sister, Jentessa, lives about a hour away and today she came over to see us! It was great to see her and visit. She almost left with a kitten :o)
So, you get another one today since I am playing catch up. Don’t forget to scroll down to see the 1st one.
Today we got the see the big town of Poolville. As the history story goes back in the day it was a booming town. It received it’s name because of a “pool” of water that never dried up. The towns people always had water. Well, it has dried up now for the most part but, one famous store remains…Willhite Seed Co.
They are a famous watermelon seed supplier shipping all over the world. They even had a little article written about them in the latest issue of Mother Earth magazine. We’re talking BIG people.
The post office is just beside Willhites (with a whopping 284 boxes) and down the little alley to the right are 2 small churches and around the corner is the elementary and high schools. Apparently there’s a town square right in front of Willhites but we were so busy with the famous seed company we forgot to look out the other window in the car to get a picture of it. Well that’s it folks…that’s Poolville, TX.
Our afternoon swim was interrupted with a trip to the emergency room. Zoe ended up needing stitches in her arm after falling from the pool deck and cutting her arm on the metal pole. Luckily it was a nice clean gash and didn’t hit any major veins. We were able to get the bleeding to stop within a few minutes and wrapped in up to head to the hospital. According to the doctor she got three stitches but, we have decided it was really 5. How can you not count the knots on either end? I mean after all, they had to stick the needle through there and it is holding her skin together. I didn’t get any pictures at the hospital. Zoe wasn’t real excited about them at the time and the doctor and nurses didn’t seem like they were either. I probably should have snapped one anyway but I didn’t. Oh well.
