You can't leave footprints in the sands of time if you're sitting on your butt. And who wants to leave butt prints in the sands of time?

More horse pictures if you can't tell from all the pictures the kids love horses. They especially love Hey Barn.


County Fair Part 1

Makayla showed in the fair first thing today. She did awesome for her first time. We will be at the fair for most of the day tomorrow she is in three events. She will do great!

New Do!

Yesterday I got a much needed hair cut. I love it! Finally got my hair all grown out of the A-line and it is pretty much the same length in the back now. Looks so much better.

Jam Making & Life Skills

Today MaKayla and I made 5 batches of jam. 1 batch of freezer raspberry jam and 4 batches of cooked raspberry-huckleberry jam. YUMMY! She loves to help and is always willing to learn new stuff. She was so excited to learn how to make jam. Big bonus for me I get a great helper and she learns a great life skill.

Pay back is a Beach.......

Well earlier in the week I was feeling a little spunky and twice I scared Tyson as he came in the door from work. I had fun doing it he told me to just wait I will get my pay back. Well in my head I was thinking I'm mostly home before him so by the time he has the chance to pay me back he would not remember. Well yesterday I had to run into town he got home while I was gone....... I walked into the front door and BOO! I jumped so high and threw my pop can.....he got me good then he kindly reminded me I have one more coming.

Oh yeah.....I do have a blog!

Wow what a bad blogger I have been I guess I have been so caught up in all the summer stuff. Where do I even begin.......

The 4th of July we had a small BBQ and set off some fireworks at home had a blast. Sorry no pictures of the event.

The boys finished T-Ball the first part of July thank goodness that is over with...... remember earlier well I believe it was the last post I was complaining about how cold it was.....well towards the end of T-ball it was way to HOT. I know I know never going to be happy to hot, to cold blah blah blah blah.
MaKayla has been really busy with horse 4-H. A week ago she had her evaluations and will be going to county fair on July 31st and August 1st. She has worked so hard for this and will do really good.

Carson has lost both his bottom teeth. He lost the first one on June 27th. The second one he pulled out on July 6th while he was on 1st base playing T-Ball I guess he could not wait.

We got our new furniture and painted the living room. This is how bad I am I can't remember if this happened in June or July. Oh well lets just say sometime this summer. Yes Kimmy and James the Furniture is the same we just liked it so much...............
I have been driving the tank around not that there is anything wrong with it. I really like driving it around until I go to park it like I said it's a tank. The poor car is broken and resting haha in the garage. The key is stuck in the ignition and the computer will not read the chip in the key. It will be fixed someday. It will be broken until the kids go back to school and we have no more daycare expenses. YES big pay raise! But until then it is resting.........

The Tank

Working in the garden I don't know if I can even call it a garden this year it looks so bad. I have been busy picking yummy raspberries. Made some really yummy raspberry muffins. By the end of the week I should have enough to make a batch of jam. Love Love Love raspberries.
This kids have been busy doing all the fun summer stuff riding bikes, playing in the water and all that good stuff.

I have kept myself busy with a few summer projects. I have been making beaded watch bands. Check out my site I have some listed.

Touched up my front door paint and added Welcome to it.

Painted the mail box, added our last name, and street number. (don't mind the water spots dang sprinklers.)
Wow sorry for the really long post but now you are caught up on our summer life. I will try to be a better blogger I really need to journal our day to day happenings better because we forget all the little things so easily and it's all the little things we truly want to remember.
