Busy, Busy, Busy!

 It's Jubilee Weekend and I am selling the tshirts for the Jubilee committee.  The Boy Scout troop is the allowed to come in and sell the shirts for them and in turn they give us a profit of the sales.  The troop committee then adds this profit up and we keep 50% for the troop fund and the other 50% is dispersed to the boys according to who works and how long.  That way they make money to help pay for their trips like camp, SCUBA DIVING, and ski trips!  The money for the troop pays for their groceries when they go, all their awards, and small things for troop fees.  It is so much fun and I have always loved this festival.  It starts at the crack of dawn but it is a whirlwind weekend.  Even if it rains it makes it that much better when you get good weather!

 Aunt Helene and Uncle Keith are here too!  WOO HOO!  Helene is so awesome and I love it when she is here.  Friday I kept my nephew and took all three of the boys swimming with Dena until they got home.  Dena and I had a picnic for them and it was awesome.  After H and K had lunch with some friends they were home too and we got to hang out for a while too. 

Bryce is being baptized tomorrow and I am super excited.  Remember us friends!  Please remember the real reason of this weekend.  Rip my friends who have given all!  Happy Memorial Weekend!

Fun in the Sun Weekend

This past weekend was my off weekend for the month. We started back the last weekend of April with Birthday parties, weddings, showers, more parties, and we even have the jubilee weekend this coming weekend. So, I was protesting any type of activity this last weekend that did not include water. Now, while you think I was being oh so lazy, I promise I wasn't all that lazy. I did get up and rake up a pile of wet leaves around a tree and weeded the ol' flowerbed for the 14th hundred time already this year. We also picked a ton of mulberries off of our mulberry tree. Since I made myself feel better about my wet weekend, I will tell you now that I did nothing else after that. We went to the pool on Saturday and Sunday and on Sunday my nephew and his folks were there also. But after only swimming for about an hour on Sunday, all the other adults were ready to go. So, I protested and kidnapped my nephew and kept the kids and boy we had so much fun!

We played photo shoot.

Bronson is really good at photo shoot. I always tell him that he is my best model.

We drank Kool Aid by the pool.

Lounged with Dad!

Played boat with cousin and brother.

Swam to our little hearts' desire.

And made some teenager looking faces.

Oh yeah, and Bryce was able to meet the ice cream truck for the first time. Steven was at a swim party!

Wax Museum

 Steven and the 7th grade class recently participated in a mock wax museum. It truly was an educating experience filled with enthralling narratives by the students. It was so nice to see the whole class involved. Every student participated and they were engaged and excited. It was very warm in the gym but that was the only complaint. I thought everyone did great and I hope Steven gets a good grade overall. So far, so good. His group portrayed Frank Sinatra with two band members. Steven brought his drum and guitar so that made him excited. He truly looks grown up. It's killing me!

Happy Happy Oh My Son!

Today at 10:46am Steven will turn 13! My first baby, one that was a surprise but such a blessing to our lives! He has grown into a fine young man, who loves God, his momma, and his family! Steven and I have been through a lot together and I have a special place in my heart for him. I used to worry that when Bryce was born that it would be hard to love two children so much. I didn't know how it was possible. Well, it is and it is something that is so hard to describe! Steven is so smart and loved. He brings me so much happiness and I am so proud of him. I cannot imagine my life without him. Every sacrifice I made was so worth it! There was a time that he was the only man in my life and that makes him more special than anyone I know! So...Happy Birthday to my first born. May there be many many more! You make us so proud son!

Sorry, I never fixed my scanner and way back in 1997 there wasn't digital photography!
