S: Summer 2011-Book #1
FC: Summer 2011
1: Cedar Pointe
2: The band teacher at Aunt Kattie's school couldn't go on the trip he planned, so I took over for him. You two were able to come with me and 100 band kids and chaperones.
3: MAKING MEMORIES | After lunch I took you out to put your feet in the water. You ended up with soaked pants. Tim, you were concerned when the bottom of your shoes were sandy, so a man who worked at the park pounded them on the cement for you.
4: Up and down...and lots of laughter | Devin's Favorite Ride
5: Timothy's Favorite Ride As he pushed the gas and took off all I could see was a future 16 year old. The time will go far too fast. | When I asked Timothy to turn for a picture he looked petrified because he was driving.
6: so many
8: FAther's Day
9: Daddy's Little Girl
10: Bryce's First Father's Day
11: Ruby | Violet
14: Boat Rides
16: Welcome to the World Celebration and Baptism | Amy is unique and spiritual. Bryce didn't want religion. I wanted to be the unofficial Godmother, so a little holy water, a dip in the lake and we all got what we wanted.
18: Church School | Aunt Kattie thinks it's important that all of you know about a God who loves you.
19: It's The Little Things In Life That Matter
23: Lifeguard in Training
24: Mackenzie, Makayla, and Marissa Love Clorice
25: A dissertation defense, a presentation to prepare for Vegas, summer school curriculum to plan, a missing dog, and lots more on my mind. I needed a break. So, off to Kelly's, which is like a fairy tale world, for 4th of July weekend. | The kids had a crazy cough, they were tired, and less than thrilled about a lot of things. It's good to know that in even in the perfect suburbia world tears happen and patience wears thin.
26: July 2: Kelly and Lyndee ran 4.5 miles. The kids ran about a quarter of a mile. Parker was sick, but hung in there.
27: Blueberry Picking | July 3: Kiley cried, Kelly got eaten by bugs, and Parker ate blueberries by the handful. It was a good adventure for around $5.
28: I stayed July 4th and 5th. Life in suburbia scares me a little bit. It's far too fairy-tale like. Nobody yells, ever. However, there is whining on occasion from the kids or adults.
29: Everyone loves the computer!!!
