So...I'm gonna be an Auntie again :) Can't remember if I ever shared that news on here or not. But, I am. Deanna's preggers again..and we just found out on Thursday that it's a BOY!! So excited. Last I heard, the name shall be Cash. But we never know till it's on the birth certificate, right? :) At any rate, we know he will be a beautiful baby and I'm sure Monet will love being a big sissy to little brother. He is due towards the end of November..Deanna's having a c-section. So I think she said somewhere between the 16th and 21st. We'll have him here for Thanksgiving!

Did I mention that my friend, Kim, has moved back to Idaho?? AND better yet, is moving to KUNA!?!?! If you don't remember, Kim is the one who I plan & bake with for Thanksgiving every year. That quit when I moved to Texas for 2 years..started back up when I moved back and ended when SHE moved to Texas for 2 years (or was it one? I can't remember..felt like 20!). We tried to plan together via just wasn't the same. BUT now she's back and my Thanksgiving baking love has also returned. I can't wait to start planning with her! We've been doing this together since Ash was just a wee little tiny, so it's not a tradition that's easy to let go of.

I've been at the pool almost every day for weeks. Cuz, I love it. And now the water has warmed up..thanks to the HOT temps outside! Unfortunately, this also means everyone else in the sub wants to swim. Oh well..I stay long enough to watch them all come and go..ending up alone again. Love it!

We've been really busy but enjoying pretty much every moment of it. :) Hope your summer is going well, too.

Both kids are doing well, enjoying their friends and we're enjoying their friends' parents! Nice to have a good church family to be close with.

Drama starts again this coming week, so Chris is gearing up for all of the fun that will hold..Bible Quiz starts not long after that and I think Chris might be my co-coach this year for that too, so we will again (still?) be busy little bee's!

We will have our vacation the first week of August..can't wait to get away and just be alone with our little fam. My brother has a LaCrosse tournament where we are going at some point that week so we will probably go to that, or at least part of it. Should be good times! I love watching him play. It's such an awesome sport. But, mostly, we just need this time away to be together and alone with our kidlets.

My left leg is asleep and it hurts to move it. Stupid, stupid leg. Thankful to have it, but it's stupid.

Well, I guess I'll be going. Love you, you're important and special and unique and made with purpose!

Until next time...


  1. Glad to hear the pool is still doing's the swimming coming for J? Is everyone getting tan and fit? Most important - is it awesomely good to have a pool you can use when and how and for as long as you want! Yeah!

  2. Getting fit requires WAY too much movement, no, we are not getting fit. But we are enjoying the water :) J is doing really well with his swimming. The pool is awesome..very busy lately though! I'm takin some time off from it..well I really dont have a choice. Too busy right now to do much extra.
