First we walked around and looked at the art. They did some amazing work. One project I will have to photograph later, as I did not even see it (it was that busy, and big).
Youngest had a painting and a sculpture entered. Her hand had to hold something she liked or enjoyed. Her hand is holding makeup, ha ha! Youngest was a bit sad she did not earn a ribbon, but she has many years ahead yet.
Our 15 year-old (10th grade), made this hand drawing which was then painted (Evil Queen from the show Once Upon a Time) - 2nd place ribbon for the school's art show. She has fake jewels glued to it too.
Our 18 year-old (12th grade) did this hand drawing/painting of a flower - two ribbons, one 2nd place ribbon from a 5-county art show and a 3rd place ribbon from the local school's art show.
We are pretty proud of their hard work, but that's not all. The entertainment was the school band and choir. Our 15 year-old preformed a solo. She did wonderful!
It was nice to get into the air conditioning, and out of the thick humidity for the day.
The night did not end after that. I got a text from my oldest daughter. Could she bring her new dog for a visit? The first thing I texted back was "do you have an apartment?" Yes, she was "looking" at one soon. So yes on the dog, and no on the apartment. Then she sends a text, "can I bring her by to show you?"
So, she comes by with the dog. And stays. Overnight. And asks me "can you babysit her tomorrow, I have to work 11am to 7pm?"
Imagine my demise, and how she worked this all out. It will be interesting if I am still married after today. Hubby left to go picket and he was not a happy man about this. If the dog does not work out, she can take her back (thankfully). However, she gets along with our oldest dog Alias, and it's Jesse who doesn't want her here. She is like a toddler that just learned to walk - bouncing everywhere with energy. Oh...I am so much in trouble for this. I just know it.
We'll be offering assistance to get that apartment and ASAP. If she keeps her, I'll share photos. She's part German Sheppard, and part wolf (9 months old). I read that wolf bred dogs are not a good pet to have. My concerns are it will need a lot of space to roam, and it may eat my chickens while it's at my place. I could be wrong, but she loves to go after rabbits I'm told. I'm also told they go into their wolf instincts later in life, and are less likely to listen to commands, and that they like to mark their territory. The last thing I need is a dog peeing in the house. So far, all this dog wants to do is play.
Say a prayer I don't get divorced for this mess. I don't have a fenced in dog area here either. I'll babysit today (her boyfriend is out of town), but she better have an apartment secured, or I may be in big trouble. Mom's are the one's to blame when things go like this.
Today it's 86% humidity, but it will taper off later. More rain possible, so I'll dodge the spurts we get and try getting some tomatoes in the ground.
