I am in disbelief that my nephew, Gage, will be 11 years old on Monday! It doesn't seem possible for him to be that old. (It doesn't seem possible for me to be as old as I am either, but that's beside the point.) :)

I'm excited about the stage in life Gage is in right now. He's a really cool kid, easy going, and gets along with pretty-much everyone. I just hope these next few years go by a little more slowly than these first 11... It makes me sad that he, Makenna, & Gavin are all growing up so fast.

Pray for us....Kayla, Kristian, Gage, Makenna, Gavin & I are all taking a family vacation this week. We leave on Tuesday for Tampa, Florida!!! It should be an interesting trip!

New Hobby

So I have a new found hobby.... bird watching. Yes, I know it may seem weird, but it's actually fun. Well, let me be specific...hummingbird watching. We hung a hummingbird feeder outside our kitchen window about 3 weeks ago. We have 3 hummingbirds that LOVE to eat!

I named them: Hummer, Midnight, & Bubba. Midnight is mostly black, Bubba has a red neck & I thought Bubba was a good "redneck" name...and Hummer surely doesn't need any explanation on how he got his name. :)

It really is fun to watch them fly around, sit & eat, and fight with each other. It's a good, cheap way to be entertained!

Summer Heat!

I love summer! Even though it's 100 degrees outside, I love summer!!! I love swimming. I love sleeping late. I love not having to work. I love it all!!

In a few short weeks I'll be going to Tampa, Florida.... I'm so excited & can't wait to be on the beach again. Hopefully the oil spill will not affect the beach in Tampa and the weather will be nice!

My summer 1 class is finally over! Human Growth & Development has been the MOST demanding class I have ever taken in my life! I had to read a chapter every night & had a test every day! I was so demanding, time consuming, and stressful! But, I loved the class & feel that I learned so much. And, I didn't do too bad either. If I did good on my research paper then I think I'll pull and A!!! We'll see!

Hello Summer!!! Finally!!!
