All these lovely showers have turned the area spring green. What a refreshing sight! It’s just like a good sermon; you come out refreshed, and ready to take on the world again.
Our prayers are with Bev Cohn, the ambulance came to get her Sunday and took her to Brownwood. She is a breath of sunshine in our church, so we really need her to get well soon.
There are several others on the prayer list. The Tracy Moreno family, the David Evans family, David continues to fight against cancer. Our prayers go out to all our community members who are not well.
A shower was given for newly born Jacey Bain Sealy by the ladies of the First Baptist Church. They had the cutest little pink candles in baby powder scent. Laura Smith arranged for them to melt into artistic shapes. Just teasing, the heat changed their shape just a tad, but they were as cute as can be!
Baby Jacey was blessed with many gifts and the nod of approval by all our ladies. This is the second four generation shower I have attended in the last year. Gladys Powell is great-grandma, Kay McKee is the grandma, Teresa Pierce is Mimi, and Deana Sealy is the new Mom. Big sister Jakayly told me she wouldn’t mind another sister, but no more brothers! Jaden and Jaston did not take offense at this cavalier statement!
A minor bump occurred, Margarite Bryant, trying out her new steps fell and bloodied her mouth. What better situation could you have for an injury? Mom, Carol, and Maggie had lots of help and hugs! I hope everyone is feeling better.
The Coyotes held a scrimmage on Friday. I think the consensus in the bleachers was that the weather was perfect. The rains had lowered the temperature, there was a brisk breeze blowing in our faces, and the game was going well. The Lometa ISD bus pulled into the parking area and the entire team disembarked to watch the scrimmage. This takes scouting to a whole new level for me!
The Richland Springs Rodeo opened Friday evening with 36 riders in the grand parade. What a delight to have this event restored to the community. Carol Bryant tells me they had 39 riders on Saturday evening. I received no details of the events, perhaps someone will send it to the paper. Congratulations to all participants.
The teachers attended a steak dinner at the home of Mr. And Mrs. Fowler last Thursday. The next day, they worked on getting their classes ready for Monday. Anyone looking down from a blimp would have seen little critters scurrying here and there. Lisa Larremore scurried a little too quickly and hit the cement with her face! She may show up to school with a black eye, but she said she was fine, when I spoke with her on Saturday.
I can tell you that most of the room parties that I had last year were haphazardly successful. Fortunately the 6th graders were flexible; they didn’t mind scrounging around for utensils or other missing items. I think one party we ended up with only one food item and the rest was “stuff”. Mrs. Young, Mrs. Butler and Mrs. Lewis rescued me more than once! Thank you for your help ladies, that goes for all the other moms and grannies that donated food items for all our parties.
I saw Melanie Smith late on Friday. I didn’t get to speak with her, but it appeared by the look on her face that the Debate workshop went well. I’m looking forward to some solid UIL competition this year. Mrs. Smith donates countless hours to our school, assisting the UIL students in their quest for success.
I need to make a correction to last week’s paper. I was late returning home and almost missed the deadline. Consequently I made a grammatical error. In the piece about Wes Bryant’s rabies issue, it was the cat that had rabies, not the baby. The shots were given to the baby as a precaution. Please accept my apology for the crossed wires.
I hope everyone has a good week, watch out for kids on the road. God bless you all; please pray for our precious troops.
