Sundays are always full. Today we had two services (typical). The boys had a Chick Fil A blow out at the lake (atypical).

Josiah came over at the end of the evening and we enjoyed watermelon and ice cream. They tried tubing for the first time and so had many stories to tell us. I think one needs to wear TIGHT pants when indulging in this sport. ::snort:: Jamin and Jared went to spend the night at Cy's.

It's been a full day. I was thrilled to capture a few moments with 7 children at home...and I'm dreaming of August when for a brief span of time we'll have all 9 together in the CO mountains.

I have photos from Sat night - but they'll have to wait another day, I'm too tired to deal with loading them tonight. LOL

Another Zanderism and One from Stacia

We have a lovely dog - Beatrix. She's 17 years old. We can't stand the idea of her aging - but she is. Mike has talked to the older boys to warn them of what may be approaching.

She is a pound puppy. We were told we were too rowdy of a family for her - but Josiah fell in love with HER at the pound. So we tried. She's been a GREAT family dog. She had been abused and has a crooked leg. The last few days she is having visible trouble moving, walking etc.

I told Zander, "Bea is a very old lady. She's over 100 years old in dog years." He looked at me and said, "Bea's an old lady? Huh - then whys her hair black instead of BLUE?" ::snort::

One more? This is from Stacia. She is opinionated. She is vocal. She has determined that if Krista (20 yo) is Zander's lover than Bre (23 yo) is HER lover. Today during an innocent conversation she told Miss Joyce, "I have a lover on a plane. Do you LUF my lover?" Joyce said, "oh my, where does she get these ideas?" and I told her we may not want to know what else Stacia was saying. LOL

Stacia has begun talking this week about her Bama and Bampa Plane (Grandman and Grandpa) and her Be (Bre) Plane and Krista Plane.

Jamin/Jamir's First Published Newspaper Article.....
Feel free to click here and read Jamin's first article for the paper. Comments are welcome as well. LOL

Jamin says Jamir may make a nice pen name...though it was his last name we had worried about publishing. ::snort::
