So this is a picture of Amber in her cheer leading uniform. I drove up to Muskegon Saturday accompanied by another grand daughter, Emily, to see Amber cheer at her first game. They didn't do bad for first timers. You could tell Amber was a little nervous in the beginning but as she spent more time in front of the crowd she became more comfortable with it. Emily and I had a good time chatting on the way there and back too. This is the first time in a long, long time that Em and I have been able to spend time alone together. Em is 15 and is a cheer leader for her schools Jr. Varsity team....she's been cheering for at least 3 years now and is very good!
On the way home, our youngest son, Jeremy called my cell and asked me to watch his 1-year old son, Ty for a while the same evening while Jeremy played in a softball game and his wife, Heidi and son Trenten, went to watch. He screamed when daddy first left, but settled down and then we had some fun. I took this photo of him after his bath when they came to pick him up.....this is one of his favorite things to do....balance in a standing position in dad's hand! And the smile on his face shows just how much he likes doing this.....isn't he a cutie too?
And Sunday evening I took this picture of my flowers still blooming in my yard. These are the ones I so painstakingly dragged the hoses to in order to keep them watered during our severe drought earlier this year. I guess it paid off!
