Tomorrow I make the long drive down to Orange County for the Water Polo Junior Olympics. I’ll be birding if I have the chance, but I’ll be pretty busy. 

Good luck! 🐦 🤽‍♂️

Just finished JOs. We placed 34th overall which is actually really good for us (out of 96, and there were many teams that didn’t even qualify). Here’s a photo of me scoring. Unfortunately not a lot of time for birding.

Are you sticking around a few days to do some birding?

When does everyone start school? I started a few things Wednesday, and will go into the full swing of things Monday.

Y'all can stop with the sad reactions, I'm starting before y'all, but I'll be out before you too.

I like to have a head start on the math in the next grade, especially because I don't like math so much. That way I can do most of the math in the summer and not have to worry about doing a lot of math during the official year.

I normally do about 1/3 of my math, it is the most time consuming so it is helpful if I need a week of not much school so I can do some work. Like last year we had to poor retaining walls in our creek because both docks were going to fall in.

Sorry, not last year, the year before that.also that was about 30 yards of concrete. And by the way that wasn't they back the truck in and pump it in, because they couldn't get close enough, so we moved it all one tractor bucket at a time.

You young'uns have it too easy! Back when I was your age we didn't have a tractor with a bucket, had to move it a wheelbarrow load at a time...uphill, downhill, sideways...I got so good using the wheelbarrow I could straddle a mudhole with it!! 😏

Barefoot in the snow, too.  We didn't worry about snakes; the gators had eaten most of them.  :classic_laugh:

30 cu. yds is a lot of concrete for a consumer / residential job, regardless of how you move it.

I'm a bit confused. You have a creek in your yard?

We used to have a situation in our yard where a neighbor was draining some of their water into our yard. It was almost like a little trickle of a stream which formed a tiny pool that I would play with when I was younger. As a result, though, part of the yard got muddy and we had a lot of mosquitoes. So we tried to stop it up with concrete where the most of the water was coming from, and then covered the muddy area with a lot of branches and fallen leaves in the fall. However, the pipe had holes in the sides so it is still muddy there, though not as bad. 

When I was two or three, I lived in Arizona where there was a creek in the backyard where my family would sometimes go swimming. One year it flooded and a shed floated away down the river.
