still around

Haven't blogged forever. Guess i've been way too busy. Seems like once summer starts it is go go go. We just started summer break for everyone and have a few weeks of nothing and then starts registration for school, karate, jr. tackle, summer camps, and whatever else decides to pop up. :)
We are on vacation for a week starting next week. Am happy b/c we are not going anywhere this time. Just staying here and working at the house, which we don't get to do that. Plan on painting the house and getting some much needed things done around here.
Hope you all have a great summer. May not be on here too much. Family keeps me busy. :)

Spring Squirrel :)

Saw this squirrel hanging out while we were out running errands today. He was hanging upside down trying to get at some berries or something on this tree. We thought it was hilarious. I know the picture is little but I took it with my cell phone.
Today has been really nice. I think it is in the high 40's.Which for here is really good right now. Feels like spring and we love it!!!!!!!!!!!!! Lots of the snow is melting and the kids are outside playing. We even got to take the puppies on a walk. I don't know who enjoyed it more, us or them. :) It is just nice to be able to get out of the house and enjoy the warmer weather for a while. We are even going to get to clean the van off. It has needed a bath for a while but has been too cold to get it done.
Hope you all get to enjoy some warmer weather where u are.

February already???

Wow!!! Guess I haven't posted on here since last year!!!! Been busy as usual with work and kids and every day things i guess. Time gets away from you.
Our oldest daughter is in her last semester of her 2nd year of nursing school. Just thankful that we got her through this far. She really enjoys being there and we are proud of her. Our middle daughter is a freshman in college and is going to be an English teacher. She is doing very well and is observing in an eighth grade classroom right now and is really excited about it. I am so proud of her too and happy to see the excitement she has when talking about teaching. Our youngest daughter is busy in her jr. year of high school. She loves to sing and volunteers at about anything you need her to do. She started volunteering at a local animal shelter,which fits her personality to a tee. She loves animals and enjoys taking care of them. Our son is doing well in all he is doing. He is in fourth grade and loves most everything that involves video games or computer. :) We are proud of all our kids and what they have done and will do in the future.

Enough already!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Well, I have made it through one full week with Emily being home from the hospital and having her hip surgery. That is a lot of work taking care of someone who cannot do anything for themselves b/c of surgery. She is getting around much better now which is nice for me. :) I am juswt glad she is able to get around a lot better and do more things on her own. The dr. said she would be feeling much better within a week and he was right. Just can't wait til she can stop the machine and be done with all this.
Now our youngest daughter is home sick. The flu test and strept test came back negative but they put her on Tamiflu anyway tonight. Hopefully that will work. I still think it is strept but we won't find that out until tomorrow sometime. In the meantime I am closed for a few days. No kiddos here. It will be a nice break for me which I think I need one. Been running around so much I don't know what it is like to sit for more than 5 minutes. :P
I will be glad when things are back to "normal" around here. :) Back to taking care of my kids .

Yesterday was our 21st wedding anniversary. can't believe it has been that long. Time sure does fly. These are the beautiful flowers my hubby gave me yesterday. He told the florist my wife likes fall colors can u make something like that? Ha. They are gorgeous!!! This picture doesn't do them justice. It was taken with my phone camera. Not the best coloring. Oh well.
Tonight we are going to go to Red Lobster. One of our favorite places to celebrate. My hubby's birthday is next week so we usually go out once for both anniversary and birthday. Saves on money :)
