Do three or four entries in a day make up for not blogging regularly? I love to write, and one of my "life changes" is to write more. (I hate the word "goals" those are for someday - life changes are immediate!)

I taught Jaima's Sunday School class this morning. We made shirts and ties out of craft foam for Father's Day. There were scraps and glue everywhere and I loved every minute of it.

I won a contest! One of my favorite blogs is John Deere Mom. Seriously, I never win anything! I won a beach towel, book, Target gift card and Starbucks gift card. I am going to Target in CF as soon as I receive it and getting my Starbucks fix on!

Jaiden is progressing with her speech. Some of her new words are: poop, toot, yellow, tent, goose, goat, gate...Some she uses on her own like toot and poop haha and others she repeats when we are reviewing her phonetics cards. She can count with her fingers. She tells us how many pigtails she wants. How old she is, how many objects are in front of her. It is amazing that she can do that but still not talk.

I have been staying up late every night, so tonite I will retire to my boudoir posthaste and read my Kindle. Night ya'all.

Noah and Jaiden playing bean bags

Andrew taking Jaiden to see the show heifer...she was kinda scared!

"Hi, Grandma Austa!"

Homeschoolin...




am I crazy? Nah - I just need to work with the girls this summer. Jaiden with her speech and Jaima with her math and concentration skills. Yes, that's Cody sneaking into the pictures. I had the area all cleaned up once, but Daddy watched the girls yesterday and you know what that means...chaos.

Time for pictures!


Chickens!

The White House

Ground cherries


My little garden...yeah, I know you see weeds. I will get to them, eventually. If it would stop raining. Or if I would get some energy. Hmmmmm

It's So Hard to Say Goodbye...

My sweet Aunt Lorena went home to be with the Lord last night. She fought a courageous battle with cancer. I rejoice that she is in Heaven - singing and dancing. We will celebrate her life sometime this coming week. My Uncle Ross and Aunt Lorena had a love story that inspired me to find true love in my life. They dated when they were younger. Uncle Ross went on to marry another. Aunt Lorena waited for her true love. He came back to her and they married and lived happily ever after! Aunt Rena was the most truthful, loving, AMAZING woman I have ever had the priviledge of knowing, and I will miss her - but I will see her again, because she led me to the Lord.

Goodbye, Rena, I love you forever.

Deep Sigh of Relief!


some of the pictures I put up for Cody's party


Proud grandparents!



(The dates are wrong on the pics because we were using Jaima's camera!)

The school year is over - let the relaxation begin! There is nothing on my "to do" list - I plan on sleeping in tomorrow and then who knows!

I finally got a new camera so I will share some pics now!
