This is a post just to let you know we are still here, and that Flat Creek is still rolling right along.
Many floaters; in canoes, inner tubes, boats, kayaks, etc. have come by. I have not seen them all, but I have heard many of them as they float by and go over the small rapid behind our house.
With the rain we have gotten this Summer it has been a busy time just keeping up with the lawn mowing. I have loved every minute of it. I appreciate every drop of rain. Thank the Lord for His blessings everyday.
My wife and I spent a couple of days with our son Philip and his wife Sarah and their daughters; Rene’e, Natalie, and Kylie in Booneville, AR. this past week. It was kind of our family get together time. However on July fourth we were with most of our kids at the family swimming hole for our annual Fourth of July get together. It was a wonderful time, both times
Our daughter Monica, husband Sam with their two kids; Addyson and AlexZander were at Philip’s too. All great kids.
Those Poplar trees we planted back in the Spring of 2011 are about twelve feet high now. Some not quite there, but most are. The Rose of Sharon’s we planted are just now blooming. Some have not yet made any blooms. Others are about to.
I have also built a Yard Deck, for our charcoal grill to set on. I really like it away from the house where it will pose no problem with flames, yet not so far away as to be distant. We have enjoyed the grill on the new deck two or three times this Summer. Good food.
It is amazing how fast the Summer is rolling along. School will be starting in just less than a month now. I am sure no one wanted to be reminded of that.
