Washington-Idaho Traditional Bowmen Shoot

This is an annual shoot that we have tried to go to for several years. We had so much fun! The weather was wonderful and the folks that came were friendly and fun. This is me shooting in the final round of the waterbag game. I came in 2nd.
Here's Mike on the right side shooting in the waterbag game.
These are the stands that hold the waterbags and several broken bags on the ground.
This is a picture looking up at the archery range that was set up.
Here were some of the kids that were shooting in their waterbag game.

Football Camp Final Games

Here's Andy #75. He's on the JV team this year.

Busy Week!

It's been a really busy week. I'm off work and have been running Andy around to and from football camp. He had practices in the mornings at the stadium and evening practices over in Richland. There were 14 schools or more involved in the camp. He has 2 weeks of rest and then he and Tyke will start summer conditioning at the school.

Today, we have our annual archery club picnic. Andy will get his first big game award for the deer he shot last fall. The first of many, I'm sure.

My brother and SIL are in town this weekend. I hope we can see them before they have to go back to Spokane. He is getting his stitches out on Monday from the biopsy that was done.

I've been working on a couple of afghans and some of the high school items that they will be selling in the fall. I hope to have a lot of things made up so that I can just restock them each week.

The weather has finally gotten hot here. It's been in the 80's this week. It will soon be in the 90's and 100's, I'm sure and we'll be wishing for the 80's again.

Here's Barry....... and Rick......

Here is my brother Barry and our nephew Rick. Rick's daughter Ashley is in this one too.
This was Barry's first trip home since the incident. According to one of his doctor's, "He's a walking miracle!" It's amazing how well he's doing.

CrochetMania Comfortghan

I have been a member of CrochetMania since Miss Kathy started it. It is a wonderful place to spend time and there are the most wonderful people on there. Friday, I came home from work and had a package. I opened it up and look what I found in there: This beautiful comfortghan! I was so surprised! I always say that timing is everything. That Friday night was actually cold and I used it all evening. It kept me warm with all those hugs that are wrapped in each square! I love you gals! Thank you so much!!!!

CrochetMania is not just for crocheters. If you do crafts or cooking, we'd love to have you check it out there. We play games and have lots of swaps. It's a fun and very supportive group there. Come join us!

More Info. on Barry

We finally got some information on Barry's MRI on Friday. The surgeon says that the blood has mostly disappeared. There is still some blocking the view on one side of the Thalamus though. They can see 2 spots, but they can not tell if they are connected or seperated. He has scheduled a biopsy for Thursday morning. They hope to find out what this is in his brain.

Barry has named his Thalamus "Thelma". Thelma comes out occasionally and talks when Barry isn't aware of her. His daughter told him that it's no wonder his brain is scrambled, he's got a woman in there telling him what to do. haha
At least they have their sense of humor still.

My last day at work is June 13th. I'll be off for the summer. I'm looking forward to it so I can catch up on crochet items and get ready for winter sales and the boat races. I've been stocking up on a lot of cotton yarn for making those huggies and have been getting some orders already.

Andy has started football practice already. He's a little scared about his shoulder since breaking his collar bone last November. Hopefully, he'll get over that and be as tough as he needs to be to play well.

Please keep my brother and his family in your thoughts. We still have a tough road ahead for his recovery.

Have a great week everyone!
