RIGHT NOW........ random post

HELLO SUMMER VACATION!!  It's been a week now since the kids have been home with me and things are going good so far. We've had some bumps but we've had good times also. This is going to be a random post about everything RIGHT NOW....

right now Rich comes home each day asking if I've sat and admired HIS growing garden, haha he's so funny. I say yes, of course dear, there's nothing I like better. I can stare at the sky and trees all day though but sorry not the garden.

right now Rich still watches me sleep and askes me a few times a day if I'm feeling ok and always has a hand on me or sits very close. I catch him watching me several times thru the weekend just to see how I am.  He's very helpful and encourages me to take naps. I still don't have my energy back 100% so naps every couple days helps. Makes my day the way he loves me and watches over me.

right now Rich loves loves his garden and is excited to see what will grow good and what won't. PLEASE PLEASE grow CORN we LOVE you!!

right now I'm still thinking of Kristin everyday and miss her!! LOVE YOU !!!

right now I'm enjoying the kids being home and no schedules and no packing lunches

right now there is some days I want the kids in school and I miss my quiet house and now I have to make lunches that will make all 3 of them happy. LOVE THESE KIDS!!

right now Sam has been doing art of some kind each day and I'm loving it, he can do such cool things when he slows down and creates. Wish he would more often.

right now Sam just finished bball camp and won 4 medals, hooray last time he didn't win any!!

right now Sam's hair is getting long and I like it long. it's also more blonde which I love also!!

right now I love seeing sam without his glasses, seeing that sweet boy face changing and growing, miss miss seeing it since his glasses hide that face.
