First things first..Im not seeing Dave. There are only a handful of people who know how difficult this is for me but due to unforseen issues, and conflicts with the kids, they take priority. And I needed the money really bad. I had to get a new computer, so yes, here I am with my brand new dell but Im not going to the concert of my life. Sigh..cries..wails..

Xander - taken by Kaylie. I don't know why but I love this one of him. He's so -- freckly.

All weekend it was very very warm, in the 90's. So we took advantage of that and did some swimming in the pool, went for ice cream and you know, did summery things..


This is gross, I know, his phlem mouth, ick. That poor kid has inherited my allergies and he hasn't quite gotten the "spit it out!" part yet. Probably tmi but still pretty funny in that he IS a typical boy!!


And all was well until he got a little too close to the edge and fell in head first, backwards. He loves swimmng, he loves jumping in but not when it's an accidental thing. He was finished for the day.


Hope ya'll had a good weekend too.

it's so soupy out today. And the boys had soccer. The 4 yr olds just could not tolerate the heat so they ended early. I sat under a shady tree (..breaks out singing laurie berkner "under a shady tree you and me") and watched the big kids while Justy helped the little ones. Kaylie wandered around back and forth, miserable from the heat and not wanting to be there. Noah's team won again, he's totally into it, very aggressive and the kid was just plain worn out after an hour and half of hard running in 90 degree weather.



Here's a page I did that Im just loving. Not the design, not the paper or glitter bird I hand cut, just the journalling and what it means to me. I love them both so so much, I love what they share, i love that they bicker like sisters but then kiss and make up just the same. I love that they've been friends for 8 years and I know they will make it, i know they will last through anything and never let a man come between them, or time, or distance. You can just see it in their eyes when they laugh together. It's so wonderful and pure and Im so grateful we moved up here so they could meet, fate it seems and I feel that way about meeting Tim and even Cristi too. And for that matter, Heidi. Now that is definite fate and I can't explain it any other way. The chances of that random occurance in that place are just one in a gazillion yet it happened and I love her like a sister too. But anyway, rambling on. Here's the layout..

New update

Well the good and the bad..

We had to get my mom's little welsh corgi to sleep on Monday. Very, very sad for all of us. she was 11.5 yrs old. I miss her already. :(

On the upside (very UP side) Im going to be an Aunt in January! For the very first time. Im so very excited for my sister and brother-in-law. I cannot wait to meet little Ananda or Bodhi.

I've been entering a lot of bloggy contests and don't always remember to check back so if I am a winner I'd be SO happy if you could post in my comments. :) Thank you!
