One Big Foot

It was hard to roll out of bed this morning and yet we were up before the coffee maker finished brewing. It is so hard to wait for that first cup. It promised to be hot and humid today and the day kept that promise. I feel for these black horses when the sun is burning brightly and the temps are over 90. At least they all have shade.
We had another wonderful day in church. Craig Stickling had the first service opening first to Psalm 57 and then 1 Corinthians 12.
David Obergfel had the second service opening first to Judges 21 and then 1 Thessalonians 1. Thankful both of these brothers are willing to serve. If you have access to the AC Sermons both were convicting, edifying, encouraging and comforting. We are a blessed people. The title of this blog is One Big Foot but the only way to find out why is to listen to the morning service. Tim Funk finished up with a word picture that had us giggling.
After church Diane and mom took Nancy out to eat in Morton, IL. Mark and I took the dogs over to mom's to go swimming in the lake. We started hearing happy voices the closer we got and by the time we walked down the path to the lake there was a big group of adults, teens and children on the other side of her house having fun on the water slide. So much for a nice quiet romantic swim. Darcy of course jumps right in and tries to catch the boys as they come slip sliding into the water. She needed to be dragged away from there that was just too tempting. Mark took a quick dip then cajoled Darcy to leave by promising her a golf cart ride home. Thankful for an air-conditioned house today. After the evening feeding I was wet enough with sweat I needed to jump back in the lake.  Below are a few pictures of yesterday's fun. The rest were placed on the Horsemeister Inc Facebook page.

 Ribbon is such a gentle mare, she stands quietly while three of the vaulters each work on taking the fancies off a leg.

 Notice something the same in the pictures above and below? We believe the red-heads are taking over the world. We were told that red-heads would be extinct soon, but each family around here seems to pop out at least 1. Karin says, "they are planning on taking over the world!"
