Playing a new game my sister bought, Scattergories Catergories, so much fun

Our frog, Irene, who is usually camera shy

Free Ritas and hanging out with my mom

Relief after a casual 5 minute sidewalk interview, most awkward and interesting thing I've ever done

Logan, the only guy allowed at girl's Bible study, he LOVES the attention

My 1st sunburn of the year, it was gone by the next morning

Family day, just hanging out and playing some random games, taking random pictures!

Project Life: Week 10

The Mom Creative

They found a new addiction. . .anything LIFE. Tonight they tried Pirates of the Caribbean LIFE. (also played this week: Classic LIFE, Wii LIFE, LIFE twists and turns, Monster's Inc. LIFE)

Fought with this printer all morning, thankfully no major harm done and I was able to retrieve the tiny corner of paper that tore off and jammed inside!

The progress of technology, after losing several CDs I was relieved to find the various songs on several old playlists on my sisters abandoned Ipod

There is at least one night a week dedicated to Wii game night. It is so nice to have a new battery charger in the house

Helping out at preschool. I was in change of the 'S' paper station. . .because I did NOT want to mess with the art project of footprints!

learning to journal my prayers is helping me to focus my day and myself. I will delight myself in the LORD!
