Awhile back I had mentioned that the two grandsons had started wrestling two years ago. Their twin sisters sat on the benches watching them.
But this year because the coaches’ daughter and a few other girls were involved, my son and DIL enrolled the girls, along with their brothers. Here is a photo of them, the coaches’ daughter and another girl in their age group. The twins are on the far right and left.
When this was shared on FB, I loved the lady photographers’ quote : “A Strong Girl looks a Challenge in the Eye and Gives It a Wink…”
Meanwhile I finished up the gradient quilt. I am not fond of binding and had some inner wrestling in regards to keeping at it, but since there are two more quilt projects to finish up and bind, I am happy to have this off the list. This is for my youngest son; it’s a tied quilt.
I started it last year using color suggestions from the Rainbow Scrap Challenge.
On Sunday they were all to be away at a wrestling match ( cookout later ) so I brought Merle down here to play for awhile. The weather was like spring and while dogs don’t really wrestle…tug of war is something like it :)
Running some laps around the yard at full speed…
After all of that a few treats were needed.
I mentioned earlier that we were to have a cookout after they got back from wrestling. WHO HAS A COOKOUT in the middle of February in Southwestern Pennsylvania? Well this Februarys’ weather is very strange and it was around 63 degrees yesterday. The grill was on! Today I was down there for awhile and we were all out on the back deck, with some neighbors and friends and the children were playing outside in the yard in just long sleeves and pants and needing no jackets.
While this is very pleasant and feels like spring I am a bit alarmed. Typically in May we worry about bushes, flowers, fruit trees etc. coming into bloom too soon and being destroyed by a freeze or frost later on. I have never encountered that worry in February; in winter!
