Every year the cousins get together for red, white & blue pictures. We were missing Josie & Jack today...but hopefully we'll catch up with them on the 4th of July. We all went out to my brother Karl's house for the pictures. Thanks to Papa Pete for loaning us his big John Deere tractor. The kids did pretty well considering Shelby kept saying "I'm bored" every 3.6 seconds, Ian got stung by a bee, and Luke informed me this was his LAST year for pictures. Yeah. That's what he thinks. Silly boy.
Tomorrow our church service is being held in Berthusen Park. Then there's a potluck, games & strawberries and ice cream. Should be fun. Except the older I get, the more potlucks skeeve me out.
Our house is pretty much a mess. We got Belle's room all cleaned out; as well as our bedroom, closet & bathroom. What a lot of stuff! Most of our bedroom furniture is in the living room...our bed is in the basement. Belle thinks this is very cool, and asked if she could sleep on the other side of me tonight. Um, no. The remodel is starting Monday...so we'll be living in chaos for awhile. Fun, though. Ü
Iz & I are either going to watch The Guardian (think Kevin Costner/Coast Guard movie) or Apocolypto. I'd better go read to the kids. We are working our way through Nancy Drew & the Mystery at Moorsea Manor. A real nail biter...;) but the girls are loving it.
