Catching Up!

Time keeps on slipping, slipping, slipping ... and I get further and futher behind on this blog!

So, trying to catch up - these may or may not be in chronological order - which gives me hives when things aren't in order ... but bare (or is it bear?) with me. Bear I think. Anyway - here goes.

We have:

Celebrated the birthday of our friend Doug & Marla's adorable little girl at a pool party and the water was ICE cold! Of course the little ones loved it though!

Planted flowers around the mailbox. Just to be clear, I didn't ... but Brian and the kids did. It was just what I needed too - just what the dr ordered. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE yellow - it's such a happy color. Flowers around a mailbox might not be a big thing to some people, but I grew up in the country and we picked our mail up in town, therefore no flower surrounded mailbox ... but now I have one! So it is a big thing to me.

Brian, Ryan & Emma sawed off a pesky stump that we had been mowing around. I share that for no other reason than to say how absolutely much it tickled me to watch Ryan & Emma sawing together. They were really serious about it and worked hard to get it out. Goodness I love our kiddos!

Well - that's it for tonight ... the other ones probably each need their own post. Plus, I need to start writing 'the rest of the story' on my wrist.

Monday Fun-day

It's been a while, yes I know ... I still need to do a catchup post. But, took the kiddos to the park tonight for a few photos and while they didn't cooperate to the extent I would have liked - I still think they're adorable. Even if they won't stand still.

After you've been there a while, and they have lost all interest in taking pictures ... their little personalities shine right though. Rebecca drops down and starts picking flowers. She's my "nature" child ... she could lose herself for hours on end out in the great outdoors.

And then little Emma ... she can't stand still to save her soul so she entertained me with flipovers, cartwheels and the like.,

I'm one blessed mama!

Catching Up!

Oh my ... where do I start. Since posting last:

  • Celebrated Emma turning 7! She was one happy & excited little camper to celebrate her big day.

  • Baseball practice has started, but games do not begin until next week.

  • We saw the 'Oscar Meyer Weiner' mobile in Shelbyville ... that was fun

  • We watched the Derby with some friends - I was rather sad about ArchArchArch

  • I broke my wrist

  • Had surgery

  • Have been exempt from dish duty

  • But really, would much rather be washing dishes than dealing with this confounded cast.

I'll try to cover the big things in separate posts ...
