The left side, wish this was better, might have to retake this again and show later. What I love the most is that it shares something from me and Rich of what we love most. For him it's the garden, he took those pictures. He tried new things this summer and loves the way the way they are turning out. For me it's the bottom one, I posted last week about these. The clouds/sun/sky is what always makes me happy. Had to make a little collage to remember this morning. The other photo is hard to see but all I could get. Rich and 2 of the kids on a bike ride, new thing for us here. Click on image to enlarge.
Wow these did come out too dark, sorry ladies. Hoping if you clickon them you can see better. In the first picture is little Miss. Sienna waving to all of us at the parade Thurs. night which kicks off MADISON OLD FASHION DAYS, a weekend event here in our town. It's the 50th one and the last one, the committee is ready to retire and noone wants to take it over (sad). So glad Sienna got to be in the last parade, she did GREAT!! The next picture is a collage from the parade, it was a HOT HOT night and it stayed this way thru the whole weekend. I wrote about OFD on the big journal card to explain it all more for the kids. This year I let them walk around on their own and it was weird for me. I'm use to taking pictures of them playing games, the food, the fun, not this time. It was too hot to put a camera in my pocket or to carry my bag, sorry I can't share more of it with you. Of course Monday came and it was nice and COOL finally, wish it had been thru the weekend. The bottom picture is a collage from my day out with my mom and kids. WE HAD FUN!! Thank you for all your sweet comments on this post about it, made my dayand I told my mom about it. So that's a wrap!!
This was a really simple and just right amount of photos/words for me, need more of these kind.
A couple quick notes/updates since I may not post again till later next week. Project Life will probably be late again due to busy days and I have an appt. next Tuesday at noon for my ABLATION PROCEDURE, please keep me in your prayers that day and hope all goes well. I will be taking it easy for the couple days afterwards. I'm nervous about it and don't like the whole doctor/meds/downtime, so not me at all. Let's hope this resolves my health issues and good comes from it.
Now for the big change in our house, after weeks and weeks of thinking and discussing Summer and Sam have deicded to homeschool ONLINE. We have them enrolled at 2 different online public schools here in Ohio. This is what they wanted most, it is a big change for us and I'm hoping and praying for a better school year for them this year. Last year was tough for both of them so I said we could try this for a year and see if there's a difference. This is mostly due to major cutbacks in our teachers and the increase in students in the class and some not so nice kids they deal with on a daily basis which is only going to continue. Feel free to ask questions if you have them. I know this is shocking, it is for us too. My quiet free days will be gone now but I'm looking forward to being more involved with their studies and happy about that. It will be an adjustment for us all. Renee has chosen to stay at the high school because of chorus, she doesn't want to give that up, so we are getting her ready for the first day and excited for her too.
Thanks again ladies for the comments, love, support, encouragement you give me, enjoy your week and the last of these summer days. Can't believe it's August already, I will be 43 in 9 days, WOW!!
