This morning Lizzie started her first day of volunteering at the local Greenwell State Park. She is what they call a Barn Buddy. This is the perfect job for Lizzie.
Greenwell has many programs, but one of them is therapeutic riding. Lizzie will be helping with the horses that support that program. This morning she groomed horses, cleaned water pails, and learned about horse safety. She was on cloud nine!
Greenwell State Park is one of the most beautiful spots in southern Maryland.
I especially love to see the acres and acres of corn.
There is a little hidden beach that is open to your own risk. I used to wait until September when the schools were back in session to take my children to the beach there.
On Friday, Allen had his friend, Jeff, come over to play airsoft guns. On New Year's Eve this year, Jeff and Allen played airsoft guns with three other boys. They braved the bitter 26 degree weather for 6 hours. But today they melted after 30 minutes in the humidity. I think that is funny!
So they spent a lot of time swimming in the pool. What a fun day.

Last night we went to Mom and Dad's home for a planning meeting. This year our family is in charge of the family reunion...186 folks have signed up so far! So next weekend we will be very busy cooking and playing hosts. If you click on the family reunion website, you can see my grandfather in the family picture, Floyd (Turk). I sure miss seeing all those aunts and uncles at the reunion. Only the baby, George, is still living.

The weather is beautiful, 84 degrees and low humidity. Tomorrow should be the same.

I hope to get some furniture painting done and start on some sewing. Maggie had two good days this week, PTL. It warms my heart to see the old Maggie.

Many blessings ~ Kathie
