Whirlwind Days

Packed lunches, stinky shoes,  nasty track clothes,  and bedrooms that resemble Greensburg 3 years ago....there is a peek into my life this week.

J had music contest Wednesday and did a solo!  We have never heard him practice or even heard the song for that matter, and we were asked not to come watch the performance becuase he "didn't think he could sing if we were in the room." So we stayed away, and it must have worked becuase he got a I on it.  He says he's not sure if he will EVER do that again.  He was terrified.  I was super proud of him!   He finished up his track season last night and is headed out on the Jr High Mystery trip this morning.

WE have lots of fun stuff coming up, and we are going to have to pick some and not do the rest.  T has a 3-day geology trip in June but also found out there are Mini Rex and Havana rabbit specialty shows (The boys raise both of those breeds)  that same weekend in Wichita.  J's made his opinion loud and clear, but T just can't decided what he would rather do.  I think either way, he's going to be sad he has to miss something.   I'm not sure if we should go try a new adventure and one I know he will have a ball with, ( He LOVES hunting rocks!)  or go to the show...and take the rabbits they have worked so hard on and spent butt loads of money on.  See what I mean??  Ultimately, we've left it up to T.  There fore, we probably won't have a definite decision until the day before! ;-) 

Our family grew this week! Niece Samantha gave birth to a beautiful baby boy! (And I DO mean BEAUTIFUL!)  So, at the age of 31, I am a great aunt! (I don't LOOK like a I?) We have to get over there soon to love on that baby!  Now we are eagerly awaiting the arrival of D's sister Sarahs little man! We can't wait!

FINALLY got my tomatoes planted...and was shocked when I discovered I had more than I had thought.   (In my defense, some of the six packs I bought were actually nine packs.) There are over 50 tomato plants in my garden this year!! Oh well.  Good thing my family loves tomatoes and salsa!!!  I do not think there will be a shortage this year.   (I have a salsa garden this year!! I am growing tomatoes, onions, jalapenos, green peppers and even the cilantro!! I wanted at least ONE batch made of NOTHING but homegrown veggies! I hope I get my wish!)

Homegrown salsa sounds so delish!

Decisions are hard to make indeed!! most of my tomatos are in too, they looked BADDD when I got home from the track meet, but are looking better today. We got half of them mulched in the other night, and the half that didn't get mulched were also more root bound and bigger--guess we should have mulched them first. I will have more peppers than I thought--so maybe we'll half to swap some produce!! My chard looks beautiful--will post pictures soon and it should be ready to eat soon too--hope we like it!
