After a day of horseback riding, Mayra, Martin, Jose and Javy are camping in the north Georgia mountains and going whitewater rafting tomorrow before ending the Outdoor Adventure Camp that has been awesome for them.
Another day of Math Camp, equally as beneficial, for Lily, Paloma, Scotty, JoJo, Jonathan and Tony while I work on the counter full of tomatoes. This morning I only have time to chop them, toss in some jalapenos and freeze them.
Like a traffic cop I'm moving masses of people out the door, Sonny and Miriam have to head for their remedial evaluation before college classes and I need to talk to Edgar about his job search. Sabrina starts at cheerleading camp, leaving me with only six or seven kids at home this morning.
I had to go charge a new refrigerator as we've worn out three others this summer, bought at yard sales, they don't last that long with twenty something people constantly opening them. Sweet Sonny, late last night after church, moved the old one from the laundry room to the garage. I just can't understand how all that crap got behind and under it, as soon as I get kids where they need to be, I'll clean it up before the new one is delivered this morning.
Someone spit watermelon seeds over a fence at some point, a brave, renegade vine is growing there with a beautiful, tempting watermelon dangerously close to eye level for the little kids. We had a 'don't pick it yet' talk to Tabby, Nando, Jack and Scotty; not sure that the grandbabies will be able to resist.
