a funny

Not much is happening on the homefront. Just trying to get this pool done so we can finally swim. the kids are absolutely dying over here. and it has been blazing hot.

we were running errands yesterday and had to stop at target. we pull into riverpark the kids see the police getting on the horses. they asked if we could stop and say hi to the horses. and i said sure. so then horses became the topic of conversation.

shannon: i would love to BE a horse!
ryne: no you wouldn't. they can only see in black & white.
me: really??? i had no idea.
ryne (says matter-of-factly) : yeah, cuz they only have rods, not cones. ( in their eyes)

i just giggled to myself. that kid is too smart for his own good.

i'm telling you these kids are a constant source of amusement. crack me up everyday!!

mail love & scenes from the pool

I got this awesome package yesterday in the mail from Australia. Rett is a friend of mine that I made through 2P's. She is the most amazing artist and constantly inspires me. We traded ATC cards and i just got her package in the mail yesterday. Not only did it include this incredibly cool ATC, but it was full of ribbons, chipboard, a frame, fabric, and lace. I couldn't wait to play with everything last night. So this is what i came up with; i used the awesome frame and some chipboard. Thank you so much Rett!

Just a quick update on the pool. The pool people came yesterday and worked all day filling in around the pool and of course the kids wanted to help. :) Today they are supposed to come to hook up the pump and do the electric work. Hopefully in a couple weeks we will be swimming.

we have a pool & new art

Well yesterday they came with a huge 80 ft crane to
lift our pool over the house and into the hole in the
backyard. i was speechless to say the least. The kids
were so excited, especially Drew.

School ended last week for the kids, so we have been
playing this week. Lots of trips to the park, daisy scout
meeting, and just general laziness going on.

i have been making some art. working on scrapbooking
more this summer. i've been trying to make a page a day,
and so far have kept to it for the month of june.
