All Dressed Up and No Place to Go!




I always expect my kids to come up for breakfast dressed and ready for the day, most days someone has to go back trade shorts for jeans or find some socks but Matt suprised us one morning. Tanny slept in his room and I guess she needed to get ready for the day too! Matt has a fun sense of humor and we sure enjoy him very much!

life goes by....



Since I took such a lengthy blog vacation I thought I'd back track to May. It is really an epic life event to have a child graduate from High School! Weird. They are still your child, you are still their parent, but from the time they're little the idea is to teach them independence, good decision making and to prepare them for adulthood. Graduation from High School felt kind of like a closure to that "offcial" process. The first time she came home from college for the weekend it was weirder yet, because she was "visiting"... and left again. That is kind of when it hit that "coming and going" will be how it is from now on. Excited for her and all she is learning - about independence and all the little things of life as well as academics... So the adventure continues and we're Thankful!

Long Time, No Blog.....



Oh my, it's been over a year since I've done any blogging, but I'd sure like to get back into it! Here is a little project I did this summer. I found the shutters for $4 (yes, for all of them!) at a rummage sale and then found some inpiration on the web for what to do with them! Here is the finished result. I was really happy to find something "just right" for the blank, boring wall in the kitchen!
