I needed to water the grass late yesterday and Rachel enjoyed running through it. It was still very hot at 7:00 and Rachel enjoyed running through it.

What I failed to mention in the previous post is that I look like a lobster. I couldn't do anything today because I hurt like crazy. Here is another lake post from yesterday. Rachel loved to tube and her favorite part was jumping waves.
We went to Brent and Lauren's lake house at Possum Kingdom Lake. We took Daisy and she liked to swim. It was very funny because Daisy can't swim very good. She was trying to fetch and beat a Labrador. The Labrador swam circles around Daisy. We went out on the boat and made a whole day of it.

Nana came into town and sold some hair bows. We had lunch at Dairyland. Then Rachel had to show off her new bed. Nana had to get under the covers to get the whole experience. They were back in the room and read books for about 30 minuets. She loves her Nana!!!

If you know me this picture may surprise you. I am not a big fan of the lake, but we went to she LaLa and Uncle Brent's new lake house and Uncle Brent took us out on the boat. Rachel loved it and even jumped into the water a few times. She really enjoyed watching Uncle Brent Wake Board.
Poppy came over this morning and brought Rachel's new bed. We put it together, but there is a bolt missing and there is a scuff on a shelf. We are going to get those pieces replaced. She is also getting a dresser to match. Poppy couldn't fit it into the Suburban, so she will get it next time. Rachel is now officially in a big girl bed.
Not a great picture. I talked Rachel into going to Summer Fest, to ride carnival rides. She rode the train, cars, and the Ferris Wheel twice. And let me tell you something, the Carnival ain't as cheap as it use to be. It was good to get out, I think she got her mind off her throat, but she was very tired when we got home.

I know it doesn't seem like it but Rachel is feeling bad today. She is very whiney. She says her throat hurts. She refuses to take her medicine, we have to give it to her by force. She is now in a big girl seat. She was very excited.

Rachel is in pain, and doesn't feel good. She never complains about being hurt and she is hurting. She has been eating Popsicles, but says it is hard to swallow. She has been fighting us on taking her medicine. She feels better if she takes it. I feel really bad for her.
It is amazing to me how many people have never heard of this magazine. It comes out once a year and I can't wait to get my hands on it. I understand if some big city people have never heard of it, but I am talking about small town folks, where football is king. This magazine lists every school from 6-man to super 5A. Talks about each team, gives the official rankings for each division, and then predicts how each district will finish. It also has good articles on the big 12. Gracing the front cover is Colt McCoy, University of Texas QB. Texas has a great chance to win it all this year, GO LONGHORNS!!!!

Rachel went to 2 lessons today. She is swimming so good. At the end of the lesson they let Rachel's group go down the slide. Rachel went down it over and over until we had to go home. She got her certificate and she is recommended that she go to level II next year. I am so proud of her and how well she did.
On our way to swim lessons (in Graham 20 miles away), we got a phone call saying swim lessons are cancelled, due to lightening. I was happy to get a call. Rachel has to attend so many classes and she can't go on Friday because of her surgery. Rachel is going to go to 2 classes tomorrow. The rain came in hard and rained about 2 inches with 70 mile an hour wind.
Today I focused on cleaning the house. I cleaned my bedroom and bathroom. After that I went to 7-on-7. 7-on-7 is basically touch football. The quarterback has 4 seconds to throw the ball and when the receiver is touched the play is over. Jacksboro's varsity is doing good and we are dominating the league. Our QB is being recruited by TCU, OSU, SMU, OU, and other small colleges in Texas. I think he is leaning towards TCU.

My Oakleys finally came in. My last pair flew out of the bus after a football game (yeah I was real happy). I forgot how good they are. It is a lot better than Wal-mart specials. I have been waiting on these for about a month. I am so happy.
Jackie took this picture of Rachel looking for tomatoes. We found a couple of red ones and picked some green ones that have been on the vine a while. I read if the tomato plant made tomatoes early and it has a bunch of green ones, you need to pick some greens ones off. Rachel helped me with the project.

Rachel had gymnastics today, yeah she is a busy girl, she did so much better than last year. If you were wondering she locked her arms out. Then she had friends over and they rode the Escalade down the street. Then she had swim lessons and she learned to go up the ladder. She also swam the furthest under water in her group.
Look what Rachel and I found in our garden. I already cut one up and ate it. Rachel's swimming lessons went great. She didn't cry and was trying to cut in line to go under water. what a difference a day has made. Jackie and I were so proud of her.

My grill fell and broke early in the spring. I have not found another one and my dad had a tailgate grill and gave it to me. I decided I needed some meet. Rachel and I built a fire and watched it. We are cooking some pork and T-Bone steaks. I love them as a matter of fact ya'll can just call me T-Bone. LOL. I bought them at the spur of the moment so they are very thin, but nevertheless they were good. And for a side note I am loosing my hair!

Rachel went to school with me today because her daycare was closed. Before we went to school I took her to get donuts. She loves to look at all the different kinds and then chooses donut holes. She spent the day with her friend Lynsey. They ran and played all day and the 8th grade girls took care of her and she had a lot of fun. She was sore out when she got home they ran all day.
