Spring Break

Time out for Women
My new flower bed-hopefully, it's going to take lots of work

the fine art of mixing concrete. There are many opinions as to what the correct consistency is.

Almost done.

We really looked forward to Spring Break-no schedule and no school. Yeah!!!! We started with a women's conference "Time out for Women" Great speakers and great music and a chance to recharge. On Mon we worked on our garden boxes (see post two down) and we dug out a space to put in a flower bed. Tues Ken and I helped one of the scouts in our troop with his Eagle Project. He was building a split rail fence between two buildings. Due to rain the mud was horrible, but everyone pitched in and he got most of it done in one day. On Wed we finished the garden boxes and then headed to the Houston Livestock show and rodeo. We just went to the Livestock portion. We went on the sky ride which took you in chair lifts over the rodeo. It was cool to see everything from that perspective. We checked out the AGventure area with lots of baby animals and Paige even won a stuffed animal at one of the games. We came home tired but enjoyed the day.
