This one's for you, Mom...

...because I KNOW you want me to blog often.

And because I KNOW you will find this one amusing!!

Today we went school shopping, and we were buying shoes and clothes and supplies and backpacks and all sorts of stuff. It took us ALL DAY LONG. It wasn't exactly a fun experience.

But I digress.

We were looking at backpacks, and Kate was trying to explain to Abby that she could get a certain backpack and have it monogrammed.

But instead, she said, "You could get this backpack and have it MAMOGRAMMED."

I couldn't explain why it was wrong, because I could not stop laughing.

Just a quick update to let you know I'm still alive.


We've been so busy that I have scarcely had time to breathe.

After picking up the kids from "Camp Grandma", we came home and immediately began installation of our sprinkler system.

That's right, you heard me... WE are installing our sprinkler system.

As in, "Dig a lot of holes, place pipes in them, and then fill in the holes" ...

We have NOT A CLUE what we're really doing, but we ARE doing it. Luckily, we have a friend who DOES have a clue, and is helping us quite a bit. (Thanks, Ryan!)

Luke took off of work last week to work on this little project. We worked all week last week...

... and we're still working.


I'm tired, but we're almost finished. Ryan said today maybe 2-3 more evenings of work and we'll be finished.

I hope he's right.

In the middle of all of this work, we ran off last weekend to Luke's family reunion on the river (which was fantastically fun, as always.)

Then when we got back, our church's Summer Music Camp began. It is currently in full swing. All of my kids are attending, and all are enjoying it so much. I am working in the "crafty" area.
SO... I'm crazy busy, and have no time to blog. But I have been taking pictures, and SOMEDAY I will post them.

Someday... :-)

What's that you hear??

It's the sound of *SILENCE*.

All my children have gone off to "Camp Grandma" for the week.

That's right.

All my children.

All week.

At my Mom and Dad's house.

Without me.

As in, I am here, all day long, ALONE.

What ever will I do???


I'll think of something!! ;-)

Sweet Summer Time!

We've been doing a whole lot of hanging out at the pool......with family and good friends.
And, MAN! Do we have style, or what?!?!?!?
Good times. Really good times. (And special thanks to my friend AND photographer, Shelley, for these photos. She NEVER forgets her camera!! :-)
