Stuffed Me

This is a picture of what Rance calls "stuffed me." The only problem is it isn't stuff....yet. He keeps wrestling with the couch cushion so I told him I would make him a life size stuffed doll (for lack of a better word) for him to wrestle. So one day he lay down on the floor on a huge piece of fabric that I already had, and I traced around him. I don't have any patience so he came out a little deformed. lol. Now I just need to stuff and sew him. No telling what he will look like then!!!

First Day of School

Rayne is in the 8th grade, and Rance is in the 5th. Lex is happy they are both in middle school, so he only has to make one stop in the mornings. Their school day is from 7:45-4:15 this year, and they only have to go 4 days a week.

Old Fort Museum

The saturday before school started we went to the Old Fort Museum in Fort Smith. We like to go there every so often. We got to listen to one of the rangers give a talk about the first person ever hanged there. In the 1800's it was the court of Judge Isaac C. Parker, known as the hanging judge.

Poor Rayne has had the shingles. We thought it was poison ivy, but when Gramma saw it she said it was shingles and she was right. Poor Rayne suffered for about a week before we took him to the doctor. It started with him complaining with his left side of his stomach and back hurting, but there was nothing there. He broke out a few days later. Now we know, poor baby.
