Hello? Is it me your looking for?

Wow, I haven't been blogging much. Either my life has been getting busier or I get overwhelmed with all that I want to blog about...oh yeah, and then there is Facebook. Am I the only one addicted to it's evil ways?

I will try to catch up...

A couple of weeks ago, Charles inspected the pool to see if he could repair some cracks in the pool plaster.....they were bigger than we hoped. So, we have had pool company after pool company over with estimates & such. We have finally decided who we want to use & now I get to do the fun part, deciding on which tile & colors I want for the pool. Exciting for a new"ish" pool...not s
o excited about the expense. 

Which would you love to have a pool that has that nice sparkling bright color or more of a dark blue? I love all of them & had a hard time making a decision. 

Michael's preschool had a fundraiser last Thursday that involved 3 of my favorite things....

                                              1. My boy Michael.....

2. Chick-fil-a! If you have not had it yet, try
it. You will fall hard too!

3. Our whole family getting to hang with our
new friends the Freeman's! Are their girls
cute or what?

Our family got hit with an AWFUL stomach bug.....Charles & I got to join in this one(lucky us). I attempted to have a GNO with Annie, but only managed to do some shopping and watch her eat her dinner. I couldn't make it to the movie, which bummed me out. Our weekend was pretty low-key, but I did get some fun surprises from the kids. They all made me adorable cards...Lindsey even made potpourri! But, oh, Michael's painting blew me away. 
I am framing it....I love it so much!

Another highlight?
Hand delivered daisy cupcake bouquet from Janice.
In Michael's words.."She's Awesome!"

I have to tell you all about our summer plans, new shops & blogs I have been enjoying, a cool swap I joined, and so much more.

There seems to be no sign of catching up!

First, am I the only one have trouble with Blogger? Can't move the pics in a post one day and the next I can. Strange. Anyhow, about 2 weeks ago Lindsey's school had Fine Art Night. 

The kids were excited to go see what it was all about....oh yeah, there were lots of cookies being served too. Maybe that had something to do with it? 
Although the lighting isn't the best, I love this pic of her. She was so proud of her school and that we were hanging out there "after hours".

Here she is so excited. We were searching for her artwork* everywhere and couldn't find it. She was bummed about it....UNTIL she realized it was placed in a special place for everyone to see as they walked by. That made her night. 

*artwork=2 pieces of art her teacher put on the wall for each child during Fine Arts Night. Seriously?  2? She was the only teacher to do this. Okay, thanks for letting me vent. That is all.

Our yearly tradition.

A fun family tradition we have been enjoying has been going to the County Fair with my parents. We all have so much fun. Last Sunday, we were able to do it again.
Lindsey realizing where we were going....notice Michael and Natalie still had no idea.
Rides were ridden. Games were played.

Excitement was shared.
Tractors were tested.
Cows were milked.
Corndogs were had.
Hands were held.

More rides were ridden.
Fried Moon Pies were you believe that one?

Snoozes were snoozed.
