Growing, Watermelon and discoveries
We tried on fall clothes this week......looks like all of Waid's clothes are too short.
Here's the breakdown from the chiropractor's office recently:
AJ 5'0" 68 lbs 13 years
Emmi 5'0" 90 lbs 12 years 6months
Wes 4'4" 62 lbs 12 years
Jenna 4'11" 78 lbs 11 years 9 months
Avery 4'8" 65 lbs 11 years
Waid 4'7" 59 lbs 10 years 8 months
Poor Wes, everyone has officially passed him in height. This is the first year he will be getting hand-me-downs from his little brother. Wes is 12, and wearing a size 6-7 pants. He may be legally classified as a "little person", but since the endocrinologists have no answers for us, we will have to wait and see.
These are our first ever homegrown watermelons.
Emmi did a fantastic job watering and weeding her little garden!
Jenna, Avery, and AJ said it was the best ever!
Emmi found a spiked collar in our tack room (Kristen's I think), and decided that Obadiah needed to wear it. Maybe having spikes will make up for not having a horn.
The hurricane brought wonderful breezes to us this past week.
And for the discovery.......
This is a very old automatic waterer on the back of the barn.
I had seen it, but thought it was rusted together.
DH had seen it, but didn't know what it was.
The iron pipe goes up the wall, we bought a $2 fitting, and draped the hose across the fence, and VOILA!!, a fully functional automatic waterer. We, of course, are feeling really dumb for not getting this up and running the first two years we lived here!
