Coral is her color.

Can you stand the cuteness? I truly can't.

Summer is flying by...

How is your summer going? Ours?

We've been swimming.
We've been gardening. Fresh sweet peas, anyone?

We've been swimming.

We celebrated what a wonderful father that we have in Charles.

We went to the movies. Can you guess what movie we saw?


We went laptop shopping and one boy in this house is very happy!


We had a great time with new friends...swimming.



We had a crazy, fun week at VBS.

The Tooth Fairy visited for the 2nd time this summer!


We went swimming.

I won Mom of the year with an impromptu trip to Mickey D's and the splash park. No towel. No swimsuits. So much fun.

We snacked on popsicles.

And enjoyed playing games.
Is Summer flying just as fast for you?

A few of my favorite things....

No joke. I absolutely love Pop tarts. Love em. Only unfrosted strawberry, though. I know, I am a freak. If that isn't weird enough, every single time I open a box, I laugh. I think of Paula Poundstone's love for them too. Do you remember her? Or her pop tart jokes? Here let me refresh your memory. (be warned, she uses some NSFHWCN language...you know, not safe for home with children nearby language.)
Am I the only one in the world who has not had this flavor gum before? Lori got us hooked. You need to try it, if you haven't. It is my new favorite.
Making pizza with the kids. Yummy and cheap = perfect dinner!
We got our tickets to Toy Story 3. Are you going? The whole house is excited about this one!
Last, but not least....2 little girls playing hide-n-seek under the covers. Does anything make you smile more? Extra tidbit: Natalie is 4 and Trinity is 2. THEY ARE THE SAME SIZE!!! Crazy, right?

Summer, scores, and silliness.

We have hit triple digit temps here, so when you want to have fun outdoors...you better get out early. I have tried to explain this to the kids. Over and over. They finally got the point Friday. We were at the park for exactly 20 minutes. 20 minutes and it was only 10:30 a.m.!
My own monkey taking on the monkey bars. A few minutes before our outdoor adventure was aborted.

Thankfully, we have our pool and we enjoyed it!

We went to Savers this past week and found this for Michael. $3 and it worked! I didn't realize it was a true bumblebee transformer. We were pretty impressed with our find. He was beyond happy.


Friday, Charles surprised us by getting home a little earlier and bringing dinner home. He walked in the house with this hat on and he brought each of us one. Yeah, you know we all wore them while we ate. The kids couldn't stop giggling.

Hope your weekend was wonderful~

A bittersweet day.

I know, I know...2 posts in 2 days....what is going on? :)

The last day of school was May 26th. An emotional roller coaster for many of us.
Cake pops were brought. Thanks, Janice for making them for Lindsey's class.

The PTO put together an end of the year carnival. Complete with

3 different inflatables,
carnival games, popcorn, cotton candy and

sno cones. Michael wore it all over his face just for you:)

Michael "graduated" from Kindergarten. They don't allow ceremonies here, so they just receive their certificates.

I am proud of my little reader!


Lindsey is now a 3rd grader!!!
When did that happen? really?


The school district governing board decided to close our neighborhood school. We fought it 2 years ago and won, but this year it didn't work. It breaks all of our hearts. Small schools are getting closed all around the nation and unfortunately, they don't realize what or who they are truly hurting. Our children,our future. Ugh, don't get me started. I am very proud of my children...they learned alot from this school.

Top 6 for today.




1. Enjoyed fresh blackberries for breakfast.

2. Watched Natalie become an super shooter expert.

3. Cheered for Michael swimming the whole length of the pool.

4. Experienced some childhood nostalgia with the family....Ice cold Kool-aid by the pool. Yum!
5. Welcomed some new floaty friends to our pool.

6. Natalie...the singer, see below. I could watch it over and over again! Wait, who am I kidding? You know I have. I love, love, love this little girl of mine!
