This is the first day of a heat wave and the kids are finding a way to keep cool!
Tomorrow is Megan’s tenth birthday so I made this bag for her.
Her main present will be a shopping trip probably next week. We’ve gone shopping the last couple years and we always have such a good time!
Last Sunday Abby wanted to make a prayer request at church for herself. She wanted people to pray for her so she could get a trampoline!
Today I bought some nail polish. I was surprised at myself because of one color choice
I think I was inspired by my knitting project!
I also found out how easy it is to spend $173 at Walmart when I’ve been gone for two weeks! The refrigerator was bare…
After being gone for one day less than two weeks, I arrived home this afternoon! I immediately noticed some changes to the yard – 3 1/2 inches of rain in the rain gauge, beautiful hollyhocks
the promise of many echinacea
and found out what is planted in the field behind our property
I enjoyed spending lots of time with my kids and grandkids
and did some sewing with Becca.
It’s nice to be home – even though it’s really hot!
Yesterday, Michelle, the girls and I went to see the guys at their GOBA campsite.
While there, we went into town and had some yummy Mexican food.
On our trip down to camp I was knitting and came to the place where I really needed markers, but I didn’t bring any with me. I looked around and found one hair band and one paper clip but I needed four markers. When Michelle told me she had scissors, my problem was solved – I cut four pieces of my straw into nice markers!
As you can see, I’m babysitting this morning!
I’ve been at Jessica’s for a week and have been stiff and sore most of the time because of moving – packing and unpacking – but I’m getting a nice break this afternoon. Jess and Adam are running some errands and Audrey has been taking a nice long nap. I’ve been sitting here knitting and reading and enjoying a nice calm afternoon.
Audrey woke up a few minutes ago and is playing in her crib and talking happily. I have the baby monitor near me and am listening to her sweet voice!
Audrey loves playing outside and liked watching Mommy blow bubbles.
Audrey decided to dress herself!
Happy Flag Day!
There IS a doctor in our house tonight! Jessica graduated from medical school today (Saturday) and is now Doctor Jessica. We are so very proud of her.
Tomorrow is a special day for Jessica, one she’s been waiting for for at least four years! We’re excited to be able to share this momentous occasion with her!!!
