The summer heat is in full swing in Oklahoma. We have not been home much but every spare minute we’ve had has been spent in our pool. This is the first time ever the hubs has had tanned legs.
Wee One has been learning to swim. He is making excellent progress on his doggy-paddle technique. He still uses a swimming-noodle to help but hes learning fast.
August 3-5 is tax free shopping in Oklahoma for buying school clothing/items. On Friday, the boys and I made a day trip to Tulsa and Owasso (tons better shopping in Owasso!) to buy them school clothes.
We left early and arrived to the stores before the crowds. The stores did not start filling up until about noon, by then we were over half way done with our shopping.
I bought Wee One new shoes and a few nice outfits just incase he gets off the preschool waiting list. Yesterday we received our final denial letter. The Osage Nation preschool has filled all of their spots. Wee One is still denied because of our income….more ranting later about that, it’ll take an entire post.
Bubba is outfitted for school and football season. All he is needing is more school supplies and a haircut. We’ll take care of that on Tuesday after I enroll him. I want to make sure he doesnt need anything else. Sometimes at enrollment the school likes to add on a whole other list of supplies that the students are required to have on the 1st day of school. Every year it gets bigger and bigger. $55 for school supplies sucks!
Scooter has been hanging out around the barn and near the house in the shade. Last week I started him back on his equine senior feed because of his lack of grazing. It looks to me he has lost a few pounds, only noticable to me, but I am quite sure he has. Scooter’s teeth are in good shape, hes wormed regularly, he is not being rode much or exercised. The heat and his advanced age I am certain is the reason. Oh well, he is behaving fine and acting like he feels good. That is most important.
In the afternoon Wee One and I have been spraying Scooter down with the cool garden hose then scraping the water off. Scooter loves it, Wee One loves it too. After Scooter is dried and has his treats, I fly spray him.
The last 2 days, I have woken up early before daylight, saddled Scooter up, and weve went for a ride up the hill and back. There is no better way to start the day for me. I am much more focused and definitely in a better mood. This must be my type of yoga…..
