Emma's class visited Daylight Donuts today (they are studying D this week); it was my morning to keep Mack so we got to go with her. The kids got to see how donuts are made and even squished some (headed for the trash) dough. She chose red and black sprinkles for her donut, so obviously the DAWG home training is working out. Mack was half asleep and not impressed. Bless.

So. Who has time to work? Thank goodness I retired!
8/22 - Friday...Bo's first night in his new house (still hasn't mastered the art of drinking bottled water).
8/23 - Saturday...family night and bbq ribs.
8/24 - Sunday...Miss Scarlett and Putter are happy we're home so they can sleep!
8/27 - Wednesday morning...time with Mack!
8/28 - Thursday...loading cabinets and memorabilia that Kate's new home can absorb.
8/29 - Friday...baby clothes that have gone from Bo to Mack and are now on their way to Baby Berryman.
8/28 - Football Saturday...our two babies at the tailgate.
Bo tailgated for a while; he and his mama went home to nap and watch the game.
The most humid game in the history of football! The big 45-21 win over Carolina helped our feelings, though.

I wrote HERE about how overwhelmed we were by daddy's funeral service at Arlington National and promised photographs. We are indebted to Anne Bunker and Tommy Smith; here are a few of the special memories they captured:
|Soldiers stand ready.|
|Transfer of ashes and flag by the casket team....|
|...with reverence and military precision.|
|Secured and prepared for procession.|
|The beginning of the final journey.|
|Standing with mama as the casket team transports his ashes and flag.|
|On the left is our Arlington Lady and her escort.|
|Chaplain Andy Jenks conducts the service.|
|Some of our small group.|
|Standing for the three-volley salute.|
|Ceremonial folding of the flag.|
|So precise and reverent.|
|The presentation of the flag to my sweet and brave mama.|
|Soldiers preparing to march.|
|The caparisoned horse waits patiently. |
Notice the rear-facing empty boots, symbolic of a fallen leader.
|Escort Platoon, Army Band, Firing Party, and Color Guard|
|So grateful for the service of these soldiers.|
|Daddy's grandchildren; he was so proud of them.|
|Section 70, Grave 2433|
In the shadow of the Pentagon, where he served for many years.
