Spring break

The kiddos are back at school this week!!!! We really had a good time over spring break, but it's really nice to be able to get back to my "normal" routine. We also got alot of things accomplished that we've been wanting to work on. We got some of the garden planted. We're even trying blueberries this year (in containers). Hopefully they will grow because the kids will be SO disappointed if they don't. We also went to Six Flags for the day and spent the night in the "big city". They had a ball, but it was SO crowded. :( We were there for 10+ hours and we rode 5 rides. Our longest wait in line was 2 hours :( and that was for.......LUNCH!!!!! I couldn't believe that it was that busy! But, I guess we learned some valuable lessons for next time (if there ever IS a next time).

I've started walking/running every day now. I'm also trying to eat better. I really don't need to lose any weight, I just need to get in shape. I just put on my Sirius hand-held radio, grab my gun and walk for 30+ minutes every morning. This morning I was even lucky enough to get in a walk/hog hunt. As Rio and I came over the hill going to the Canyon Lake pasture, there was a black wild hog rooting up around one of our ponds. I put several in him before he disappeared into the woods. Hopefully he was torn up bad enough that he'll die.*

*I'm not doing this for sport, or for the heck of it, wild hogs are a serious problem around here. They can ruin a pasture in a heartbeat.

I totally understand! Nathan likes to hog hunt every time he has a spare moment.
