Sorry I’ve been gone, but with my husband gone last week, I’ve been a
little lot busy! While he was gone wasn’t too bad, but as soon as he hit the door we have been running! Here is some of the stuff that has been going on in the last few weeks.
A my 7-year-old daughter had her father/daughter dance with AHG. Here is a picture of them.
All of the pictures had the sun in their eyes, so some my husband was smiling, but A, had her eyes closed. This was the best that I got at home. They had a great time. A ate too many sweets and had an upset stomach for some time during the dance. I need to remind her to limit her sweets next year!
Also, we had 2 birthdays recently. My husband turned 47! How can I be married to someone who is 47? Crazy!
Right after my husband’s birthday is my son R’s birthday. He turned 15. Wow!
We have been outside when the weather is cooperating. L loves being outside. It should be a fun summer!
We got three chicks from a teacher at school. They are cute! L loved looking at them. When my husband took one out of the brooder to show her, she wanted to grab them. She about ripped the head off of one. We did want to get a picture of her with the chicks, but she was grabbing at the chicks and we were worried about their safety. Here she is distressed because she really wanted to hold a chick.
J, our oldest, and a senior in high school was named Salutatorian of his senior class. We are very excited and proud of his accomplishments! He should qualify for some additional scholarships because of this achievement.
I just love this picture of L eating a muffin, so I had to add it!
We had the chess tournament which was a Friday night and Saturday all day. The boys held up great. They didn’t do as well as they hoped, but now they realize that they need to keep practicing so that they improve for next year.
S and A had to dress up as their favorite fictional character for a school assignment. S read Charlotte’s Web and went as Wilbur the pig. A read all of the Fancy Nancy books that our local library had and then dressed up like her.
Here is M being nice and pushing the girls on the swings. L just loves him. She calls out his name a million times a day and I have to remind her that he is in school. He just signed up for PSEO, so he will be taking 2 college classes next year. He will only be a junior in high school next year, so by the end of his senior year, he will have about a semester of college credits completed!
R has been working on his forge. We recently were able to acquire coal which has really opened up his options as compared to the charcoal which he has been using. It burns much hotter than the charcoal did.
Anyway, that is some of the things that we have been up to. How about you, what have you been up to?
