A Little Bit of This & That...

The month of June has come and gone in a blur of activity! Birthday parties, Eclipse parties, time by the pool, picture shoots in the woods, and of course beloved down time!

This summer we decided not to spend our money on a vacation. I thought at first it might be a little boring, but we have found lots of ways to fill the time! We have all enrolled in a summer reading program with our local library, spent countless numbers of hours by the pool, caught lots of fireflies, eaten too much junk food, and stayed up way too late! And we still have another month :)

I don't want summer to speed by too quickly though...I know with all three boys in school this up coming year is going to fly!!

Hope you are taking the time to enjoy your summer as well!

Well, I can't fully exhale yet...I am taking 6 hours for my masters and going through the Ketucky Reading Project. But, there is a light at the end of the tunnel...July is in sight, and with July comes the end of classes!!!!

To celebrate the beginning of summer, and the death of our camera, we bought a new one. A new glorious, wonderful camera. A Canon Rebel XS!!!
We love it and the pictures it takes! We are still learning, but playing around with it is half the fun!!! I am still waiting for one of those cool evenings where the kids and the hubby are all in fairly good, cooperative moods. When this blessed event does happen (or should I say if) I am loading everyone up in the new mode of transportation and heading out to Kevin's grandparents to have an impromtu photo shoot in the woods!!

Love, love, love this picture below. A little wine (for the adults) + Jazz + potatoes + butter knives + my boys= some good times!!!

Well, WKU is calling back later to talk about the pool, it's pivotal role in our lives, and our new wheels!
