We had some visitors this week. I enjoy seeing the long as they stay away from my gardens. Aren't they cute? We've seen three sets of twins this year.

Today was a busy day. We were out the door at 8:30 am for Homeschool Co-op. Our cooking class made 6 pies ~ 2 apple, 2 pecan and 2 pumpkin. They turned out beautifully. The students got to try each of the three kinds of pies and we gave the other pies to the church for a funeral luncheon this afternoon.

One of the dear elderly ladies in our church, Miss Octavia, went home to be with the Lord this week. Miss Octavia had been failing in health for some time, so we are pleased that she is out of her pain and in heaven with her hubby. Mrs. Pat, her daughter, was very close to her Mom and I know she will be lonesome for her in the days to come.

Mrs. Pat asked my girls to sing "This World Is Not My Home" and "When We All Get To Heaven." They did a wonderful job. Here they are in church practicing before we left for the funeral home.
Mrs. Pat also asked the Men's Trio that hubby is in to sing "Marvelous Grace." They sang the best I have ever heard them sing, especially considering they were given one quick run-through before performing!

The Lord really blessed the service. There were wonderful pictures to see of Mrs. Pat and her family. They will be going to Arkansas this weekend to bury Mrs. Octavia.

After the 8 pm funeral, we headed south so we could pick up three sandwiches at Roy Roger's (the restaurant) since we were hungry (dinner was very light). We decided to do one of our favorite pastimes and headed to Solomon's Island. We divided the sandwiches 7 different ways and ate in the pavillion. Our weather today was very warm but it's supposed to get cold weather from Canada tomorrow. This is the pavillion:
Mike taught our children the finer points of ballroom dancing:
Maggie especially enjoyed it:
For some reason, our family has always enjoyed this pavillion. We have gone there and ended up singing. The acoustics under the dome are wonderful!

I enjoy looking at the quaint old homes and the old fashion clock.

All the children had fun on the playground:

Even the bathrooms are nice!

The Solomon's bridge was being worked on, so it took us a long time to get home. We sang every cowboy song we could think of, including all the cowboy Christmas songs. We got home at 10:48. We just finished praying and the children are getting into bed. It's 11:48.

I hope you and yours had a wonderful day too.

Many blessings ~ Kathie
