I have been completely unmotivated to do a thing the past week, unless you count cookouts as a *thing*. I have exceled in that area.
We spent the 4th on the lake with jet skis and family.
Devin grew up on this water in Tennessee and it is a favorite summer hangout for all of the kids.
It is always fun for everyone and this was the first year Fletcher could really go for a ride.
Of course no 4th of July would be complete without some corn harvesting and some blueberry picking. I think I ate as much as I picked and we enjoyed a home made blueberry pie the days following.
After we recovered from July 4th festivities we hosted a cookout at our home on Sunday, complete with fireworks. This of course meant that Monday was a sluggish day for us all. Lack of sleep and too much sun wore us all out.
These are not my reason for a lack in motivation to accomplish any of my many projects. The truth of the matter is we got a new baby.
We got a new fur baby, a mutt, a half pug beauty.
All I want to do is hold him.
Even the bulldogs love his antics and play with him. Duke knows how to be gentle too.
It is officially Indiana's (Rock Star) puppy, but we all love him so much that he might never be allowed to walk on his own. He is cute. Why are puppies so cute? That puppy breath? Seriously, why is puppy breath such a sweet smell?
So, we are that crazy animal family that owns a billion pets. We really do love having lots of animals and the kids are fantastic caregivers. I really do feel sad for ids who never have the chance to own a pet. Of course, there are times I feel sad for my feed bill and my budget and even my sanity.
BUT, puppy breath and puppy cuddles cures many ailments.
I have been calling this sweet pup Freddie, but I suppose since it is officially Indiana's pet she can name him.
She has named him Delconno. I have issues remembering that name, probably because I am a little old and somewhat crazy. I may or may not whisper "Freddie" into his ear when I hold him.
At any rate, we love him.
My goal today is to seriously look at my upcoming homeschool schedule and start going through curriculum possibilities....or maybe I will hold a puppy. Who knows. It is summer, right? I can have a few easy and lazy days, right?
I will say that I have some nice helpers now when I milk cows, which makes farm chores more fun.
Happy Tuesday, Ya'll!
