SMT 78 and Entertaining the Grandson

It's that time of the week again, where if I don't get my post done pretty darn quick, I'm going to miss out on a Sassy Cheryl's image.  The challenge is called Show Me Thursday on Sassy Cheryl blog. She usually shares something she has in the design process, and then asks that we share something we have going on in our lives. It doesn't have to be a card. Now winning an image is great and wonderful, but if you really want to enjoy yourself, you really need to go pop in on the blogs of the other entrants. You get a wonderful incite to their lives and their cultures. It's just as much fun as winning the image in my opinion.

OK, enough of that. As many of you know our DD#2, her DH and our grandson MonkeyMoo(MM) have arrived for the summer. DD and her DH will telecommute to work, and give MM a chance to spend a long summer vacation in Mississippi before he starts kindergarten in August. They're putting him in day care 3 days a week, and we'll watch him the other two. That way DH and I will still have time to do our own thing, but I have to say that if the pace doesn't slow down some, Grandpa and I might not survive the next two months.LOL Here are pictures of what we've been doing this week either on Sunday or after  he gets home from daycare.
Sunday started with some soccer practice. At least he had his tennis shoes on and not his boots.
He's going to wear us out playing baseball and chasing the balls he hits.

Hope this doesn't horrify some of you, but hunting is a big thing for his Grandpa, and he wants MM to be brought up knowing gun safety. MM is actually amazingly good at this.

A regular sharpshooter with 3 bulls eyes and two in the white circle.

He's been riding on the tractor with Grandpa since he was two months old, but he's about to the point there's not enough room.


  1. Oh, what FAB pictures. He is just so stinking cute and you can just see his ornery side. I, of course love ALLLLLLLL of the pictures, but my favorite is him pointing to his 3 bulls eyes. What a great shot he is! I remember doing the same with my dad with my BB gun. It was so much fun trying to outdo each other.
    Yep, the pace had better slow down or you all are going to be 'frazzled' by the end of the summer. :) I'll be praying for you. LOL
    Thanks for sharing these sweet photos of your sweet MM! Tell him Mz. Cheryl says 'hey'. And I'd challenge him any day on the sharp shooting. :)

  5. Aww the Monkey Moo has a perfect setup for a little boy to grow up in. Reminds me of my Aunts place in West Virginia. I loved visiting her and never wanted to leave. (I grew up in Washington DC) We need to bottle MM's smile and sell it. We'd be millionaires.
