Where do I start?
Yes, I am still here.
I have enjoyed some extra energy and less nausea, so instead of blogging I have been a good girl and worked really hard. I have been landscaping in the yard with Troy. (We are almost done! Yippee!) Hours have been spent finishing all the details of last year's school and preparing for the next. I am ready to start which is a nice accomplishment since it is only June. My poor closets have been ripped apart and resorted in order to make room for another little someone. Last, but not least, I am finally cleaning some places that haven't been touched for months. But it hasn't all been work. . .
We still do our weekly library visit. I thought Ethan looked so cute listening to a story.
We have spent hours outside and at the park. The boys were very excited when I took them wading in a small creek. It was so fun, and they spotted lots of minnows and saw a crawdad for the first time. Lake Robinson was another destination spot, and we even enjoyed a picnic lunch last week.
The "Aunts" ( my younger sisters) did it again and surprised us with another box of goodies.
Another special event was when our friends, Curtis and Jennifer Going, were able to join us for an evening. The boys already liked them very much, but they moved up a few notches when they presented Seth and Ethan with HUGE water guns!
I had fun preparing for the evening with the Goings and even made little place cards. I ripped cardstock, painted chalkboard paint on the front and wrote each person's first name letter with chalk.
Here is a snapshot of my impromptu centerpiece. With all the lemons and limes, it smelled like Sprite. :-)
My last closet section is calling me now, so I had better go and organize. Hope all of you are having a good Monday. I'll see ya in your blogs.

You are so creative and do such cute things! Ethan is really growing up. He's losing more of the "baby" look all the time. It's kinda sad.
Joshua took my weight photo and I wasn't ready. I never thought about it, but you're right, we all look sad in our before photos. I think it's because we are sick of being fat!

I really like the centerpiece. Looks very summer-ish! I too have been getting ready for next school year...I'm trying to control those feelings of panic whenever I think about summer being over....and you'll have to do it all with a new baby....I guess it's a good thing you're getting organized! I have to laugh about the closet cleanings. I remember walking into your house going "WHAT are you doing?" My closets usually only get cleaned when we move (not really, but almost)....but we won't tell anyone else that. haha

Glad to know you're feeling better. I remember those days....yuck!!! Enjoyed your blog.

Oh my goodness, we have MISSED you! If you'd quit being stubborn and move to Frankfort, I could help with the closets and you could help me pick paint for redoing a couple rooms! :)

Love the centerpiece. Understand about closet cleaning. I don't do it as often as I should. Thankfully I only have five closets in this house.

Gotta hand it to ya... you do make me jealous... You are so clean and organized. I believe I only have three closets in this house... I still have the gags... Have been really gagging the last few days. Faithy hears me and asks, "Are you sick, Mommy?" Yep! I am also VERY tired. Feel drugged. Will survive... Hopefully, my energy will return soon so that I can tackle some big tasks. Love your creativity! I am sure it made the Goings feel really special. Better go... got to go to the library, store, etc... Walking, of course. Got housework and VBS tonight, too. Keep up the inspiring work!

I love your centerpiece. Very pretty and I agree with Nancy - "summer-ish". I'm glad that you are having some good days.
