He Owns a Diploma!

Friday, July 30th, 2010

Lee and I got to spend a little bit of time together this morning. He handed me his diploma! It looks so nice in the frame I found. Now, I just need to find my diploma and we can hang them up next to each other. I’m so proud of him. I’m thankful he didn’t […]

Artist Study

Thursday, July 29th, 2010

A couple weeks ago, James used a coupon to buy a paint by numbers kit. He’s been working on his painting and exclaiming over the clouds. He  props the canvas up and looks at it from across the room and hollers, “Mom! The clouds look like real clouds!”  I love watching him work on it […]

James and I added strawberry picking to our summer “to do” list this year. We waited too long though! My friend alerted me to a great sale on berries at the store and so I stocked up on berries there and came home to make some delicious jam. MMM! Did you make anything with berries […]

Answered Prayer

Tuesday, July 27th, 2010

Last night, I had trouble sleeping. I was concerned about Lee’s day today. I was surprised I wasn’t concerned about his day on Monday. On Monday, they drove the semis through standing water and had to hit the brakes and control the truck. I’m glad I didn’t witness that one! Lee said his instructor told […]

Pain in the Neck!

Sunday, July 25th, 2010

(this is not my shoulder or my hair but this IS the side of me that hurts–and aren’t those cables pretty on that sweater?….) I know that in the past I’ve mentioned my neck and it’s crazy problems, but I don’t think I’ve ever really explained them. 15 years ago, my life  changed in a […]

Hello! I’ve been super busy and tired this week so my posts have been a bit sparse! However, I did find some interesting things this week to share with you! These hydrangea cupcakes are so pretty! A helpful article on training children to manage money. A funny blast from the past–strange fashion fads from our […]

True Confessions

Tuesday, July 20th, 2010

I haven’t blogged any true confessions for awhile have I? Here are few more. 1. I prefer to be lazy. 2. I have an inner “Monk”. I make James put the bath mat straight–I can’t stand having crooked things on the walls–I move tables at Bible study if they’re crooked! 3. I enjoy scaring our […]
