Sunday In Oracoke
Hello all, I just realized it was Sunday! And I had to get on the computer to find out!! How did I lose track of the week? The week started with getting the house back in order after the family left on Sunday evening. If I haven't already said, we all had a great time. I especially had fun with the kids and really miss them. Of course the girls have been resting up all week after all of the excitement and attention.....they loved every minute of it! My daughter-in-law, Emily, told me that Mina can come and stay for the whole summer next year....I hate to wish the year away, but I can't wait. She is 10 and we have such a good time together! I am going to look into activities for kids over the winter so she has something to be involved in to meet Island kids her age. Now that they are gone it is time to re-group and get started on the dog grooming, everybody seems to be very dirty & of course the girls will be thrilled to find out it is tubby & table time! Still very hot and humid here and work is very busy....the slow down will occur when the kids go back to school and then we will be invaded by the fishermen in the fall. That is all from here for now....not much happening, quiet and simple, the way I like it. The girls are asleep at my feet & Amelia is actually on top of them! the photos I'm sending were taken at the Pony Pen's that are maintained by the National Park service. My friend Laura is in charge of the ponies and the breeding program and the kids and I got to go and tour the pens and meet the horses. The horses are descendents of 400 year old Spanish mustangs that they believed swam ashore during shipwrecks off the coast, which is call The Graveyard of The Atlantic. A new foal was born in March so Mina and Cassie were very excited to meet her! Tricia, Greyson, Rose ,Willo ,Amelia & Storey (My Woofs in Sheeps Clothing)

Thanks you Tricia, your house must seem so quiet, but lots of wonderful memories of a very special time with having all the kids to stay. I really bet you are looking forward to Mina staying over the holidays next summer. I love the pony photos real mustang paint ponies from the wild west.
