As we expected, Jess and Jan, along with Chandler, left home right after lunch and arrived here around 3pm. The plan was for us to babysit Chandler while the ladies went to the baseball tourney in St. Francisville to watch Rett's game. And, that's what was done.
Unexpectedly, we got a call from Bec saying that she was coming over for a little visit, and she arrived here about an hour or so ago. She came alone this time, so we'll have plenty time to visit.
W/re the game, Rett's team won; however, they other team got really close at the end. Congratulations to Rett and his team; they'll play again tomorrow, but I don't know the time frame.
After the game, Jess and Jan returned here to pick up Chandler, and they headed to Livingston to be ready to watch Tyler's game tomorrow morning around 8:00. The rest of the schedule is uncertain, depending on whether or not they win. We were promised regular reports on the game, so we'll know almost as soon as they do.
We had sort of planned to take Bec out to eat tonight, but decided to wait until tomorrow and make it a little more of an outing. We'll probably go to NOT YOUR MAMA'S, unless Bec has some other preference.
Sid's finger is doing so much better. In fact, he decided to climb up on that tractor to do some mowing in back. First, though, he mowed the back yard on our regular riding mower so that Chandler would be able to play without concern for ants. She is extremely allergic to ant bites, and we wanted to make sure we didn't have that additional problem.
Channie was so good--she played around the Cottage and in the yard for a while. We also took her on 4-wheeler rides (one with Gramma and one with Grampa), and I was able to take a few pictures near the chapel built by our BIL after their little grandson who died of SIDS--a memorial to a special little guy.
I spoke with Mom and Ricky today, both of whom are doing fairly well. Mom sounded really good, but Rick was in pain from shingles, not to mention his fibromyalgia and rheumatoid arthritis. Hopefully, both will be doing better soon.
That's it for tonight! Have a great weekend!
