It's been 3 weeks since I have blogged. .
In a way, I feel bad. .
Life keeps on. .and I just do what I can!
I know you all understand!
We are all doing well. .
And have missed the sicknesses so far!
Grant and I finally got some more photos of Cami. .
the lighting was much better and I am really pleased with mine. .
Grant got some cute ones too. .
So, hopefully. .
one will make it to the fair next summer.
And she thoroughly enjoyed her bag of Hershey's kisses she got as payment!
She's starting to talk about what will happen in kindergarten next year. .
and advised me last night that she has kissed a boy. .
OTHER than one she was related to. .
That crazy time. .how it flies!
Grant did a talk on making one of our new favorite treats. .
Coconut Bonbons. .
He also received a blue ribbon. .
and gave it again at the 4-H meeting earlier this week.
He has enjoyed driving his old truck around. .
and it seems to have stirred an interest around the town.
Tristan did his 4-H speech on HOW to give a speech. .
which went over well with the judge.
I think he is a natural at entertaining people and he did a really good job.
He gets to perform at Regionals also.
This weekend will find him performing at his first forensics meet this year. He has several things he is working on. .and it will be fun to see where he goes with it.
He and Grant will start golf practice in a couple weeks. .
Hard to believe that the school year is winding down again!
Oh, not up to much outside the usual.
In final preparation for our bedroom makeover and addition. .
I have been scouring pinterest and the Internet in general for the last few weeks. .
I have found several projects that I wanted to do. .
Several that I have gotten the things I need to create. .
waiting on the right time to do it. .
And I have come up with some super fun ideas for our new space. .
One of which includes an antique wardrobe. .
and a WET BAR! I'll keep ya posted!
One thing I AM sure of. .
is that when my kids leave home. .
I may NEVER leave my room AGAIN!
|Location, location, LOCATION. .|
I will be reminded of God's word every time I look at my own hair in the mirror. .
I did finish a project the other day. .
While I was working on the inspirational signs for my sisters that I posted about a month ago. .
I decided that I wanted to do a vinyl verse in my bathroom. .
I've had the verse planned for years. .
just never followed through.
My friend Cindy owns a shop that does the vinyl lettering. .
and this past week, she was able to get my verse finished and cut. .
And I got it put on my wall Monday.
Do you love it??
I do. .
I struggle with a vanity issue. .
I want to wear cute clothes. .
have my make up and hair. .
The aging process is not always glorious. .
But I LOVE this reminder. .
that I may have GRAY HAIR. .
but it is crowning my
EXPERIENCE at life!
The super cool part of this vinyl. .
is that I can move it. .
and did. .
multiple times before I was happy.
I think the chapter and verse numbers will need to be moved one more time before I am totally satisfied with it! Thanks Cindy!!
But they scratch all my flower beds and kick up the mulch like no one's business. .
You can see that I will have a lot of sweeping to do!
Because my yard looks SO BAD. .
My motivation to go out and look around the gardens has been minimal at best!
Though I have no crocus blooming like my friend GonSS; I was surprised to see such a healthy clump of sedum coming up from the base!
1 Corinthians 13:13
Three things will last forever—faith, hope, and love—and the greatest of these is love.
Have a blessed day!!
