First, Governor Sarah Palin did IT!
She gave the speech of a lifetime.
I guess that this means the attacks
will get harsher, if there is anything
to attack her on. She certainly did
not play the "victim".
Seeing her entire family with
Senator John McCain
was downright cool!
Little Trig is an adorable little
boy. I was glad he was awake on
stage but wondered if he would be
scared with all of the noise and
people. He did not seem to be.
Precious little guy!
On other subjects...
school has begun and I went to the
Library yesterday. After searching
for a little while I was able to find
exactly what I was looking for.
This almost never happens.
So I am pleased.
It is such a blessing to have a
comfortable, clean and well stocked
library five minutes from the house.
That doesn't keep me from making regular
"donations" (fines) on late returns, however.
As long as I think of them as donations
I don't mind. We use so much of their
material for school and homeschool co-op.
My Mom and Warren's Mom have begun their
adventure in the West. The first leg of
their trip began yesterday with a flight
to Dallas and then on to Phoenix where they
rented a hybrid car. After a long time they
figured out how to make it "go". Oh, to have
been a fly on the ceiling of that car. They
were tired and it must have been hysterical.
It will be interesting to hear about their
trip and to see the pictures when they get
back. They are just two crazy women taking
in the scenery...riding horses, taking jeep
rides, riding burros down into the canyon,
taking a coal train for a beautiful journey,
climbing Mesa Verde...and so much more.
We are stuck with the animals!
Not so bad...but the trip would be more fun!
I am very, very glad they are getting to do this.
Well, speaking of the animals. It is time to
walk the dogs.
Blessings on your day!
