This, that, and the other...

Our Primary activity was successful, even though it ended up being inside due to the rain. We just played a few extra games, I took a few items from the museum to show, we talked about what it was like to be on a wagon train and what sorts of things we could take with us. The food, beans, bacon, biscuits with honey, watermelon and milk went over very well. It is always good to have an activity over and then look back and feel it was successful.

It rained all day. We ended up with somewhere over an inch of rain all total. The crops are going to love it! They are lush now and are going to be more lush in a couple of days. Tonight is clear and warm, 68, so tomorrow will be warmer than they predicted. Good, we want some good summer weather. I look forward to about 80, of course, that includes having the ability to head indoors to the air conditioning; after all, 80 with 80% humidity is a little hard to handle.

The Red River Genealogical Society spent about two hours at the museum. We discussed several cemeteries that needed transcribing and what could be done to accomplish this. I hope that we are able to finish all of the cemeteries in the county eventually. That would be such a worthy goal, but a challenge too.

Thought for the day:
Be sure that it is not you that is mortal, but only your body. For that man whom your outward form reveals is not yourself; the spirit is the true self, not that physical figure which and be pointed by your finger.
Cicero (106BC-43BC)
