Here she goes!

She just may take off one of these days. When I think of Paige,and all the kids, getting big so fast, I sometimes feel kind of sad. I will miss the feel of a baby on my shoulder. Don't get me wrong, older kids are a TON of fun. It is going to be a blast to watch and help them all to grow. I am so blessed to have 5 great kids, and look forward to lots of grandkids. Is it wierd to think of grandkids while I still have TWO in diapers?? I might think too much...

Silly kids!

Kyara and Luke love to play together, just don't let on that you know, Kyara will tell you she's WAY too big to play with him! ;^)

This week was a blur. We spent lots of time at my Dad's house, where Kyle is remodeling his bathroom. I wish I had taken before and after pictures! So far he's replaced the shower stall. Next we need to paint and replace the tile. I also started math 122 this week. I aced the first week's test so I'm optimistic(although cautiously so, since this was really just a review of the last class). I also had a pretty good week at work. Jase and Laura are having a great school year so far. Last year was so hard for Jase-he and his teacher just DID NOT jive! He looks forward to cross country and student council.
From here out, I vow to take more pictures, so I can look back at my blurry weeks with some clarity! :) where did I put that charger for my camera battery?.....

Swimming and Gardening

We went swimming, as we often do, and a friendly game of tug-of-war insued. The boys never could get April in, but as you can tell from the big splash next to her, she was able to get them in sometimes. While we were out swimming recently I checked on my garden as I often do, and...

I discovered my first 'fruits' in our garden! The kids and I planted corn, watermelon, and pumpkin a month ago or so. We were pretty unsure about how to garden, what to plant, and stuff like that. I held out hope that we could get something green out of the ground, but was prepared to fail-so imagine how excited I am to actually get this far! The kids and I have had a blast with this small patch of ground, and I can't wait to clear a bigger area and plant some more! This garden is a success in my book-even if this is as far as it ever gets!!
Today I went out to eat twice. I guess Im working on a spare tire... I had fun,though. Isn't that what counts?
