A couple of weeks ago, Spencer and IV moved up into 4 wheelers from their little motorcycles (that they had majorly outgrown!)  They have riding gear and have been taught how to ride safely----but evidently they weren't 100% sure where the property line stopped nor did they bother to ask.  They ended up making a path down the property line into the neighbors land.  And that neighbor is the type to make a big deal.   Keep in mind, that we live in the county and everyone down in our "neighborhood" has at least 5 acres of land--so it isn't like they did donuts in a flower bed.  BUT--- they DID mess up a section of her yard at the property line.  Boppa got the supplies and Jimmy got out the tractor and the boys had some manual labor cut out for them to repair and reseed.  Spencer came home exhausted and filthy. I am fairly certain they don't want to be landscapers when they grow up!

Mom, I miss the blog.

Spencer said, "Mom.  I miss the blog."

Well okay buddy-- let's fire this bad boy back up!

We had a busy weekend but managed to find time to go to the local Bush Hill festival. Years ago, we went to the festival and I would pay stupid amounts of money so Spencer could ride all the kiddie rides. This year I paid stupid amounts of money for Spencer to eat.  That kid had a fresh-squeezed lemonade, a smoked chicken sandwich, a funnel cake, a snow-cone....and would have kept eating!

The people watching was hilarious. I think a man would adjust himself while standing in front of the Queen of England. Normally, I ignore it--but when a man adjusts his sackage, then reaches out--with the same hand-- to give me a sweaty ball scented flier about his church...yeah I'm gonna have to pass on that one. Gross.

We also went apple picking this weekend and then I made a big batch of apple butter! Yummy! I love apple picking but I am terrified of snakes---and snakes LOVE a dadburn apple tree.  Luckily I got 10 pounds  of apples for $7.50 and not one snake was seen!

Last weekend, we took the boys to see the Blue Man Group.  They LOVED IT!  I have seen them twice in Vegas, but this was a first for Will, Spencer and Joe.  It was definitely one of our best family outings!

Spencer went camping with Jimmy, Melissa, IV and Boppa on Labor Day weekend.  He had so much fun he forgot to call and check in with his momma the entire weekend  :boooo:  Brat!

Spencer stared 7th grade last month.  I know what you're can Spencer be in 7th grade when his Mom is so young... hahahahahah   :heavy sigh:
