Unpacking and Packing...

Family picture (not many of these)
Kids feeding carp and ducks at dock where we rented the boat.

Well, we are home from our first family trip to Smith Mountain Lake. It was so pretty, the weather was great and didn't get one bug bite!!
The house my H rented was so pretty and huge!
We all had a blast and are ready to go back. I hope next time I don't fall off the jet ski.
I wasn't ready to jump in the lake but when my H took me on the jet ski I never thought we would fall off. We weren't 10 feet from the dock, he started leaning to the left so did I, and next thing I knew he said we are going in the water, and I just remember going under and thinking ok WOW, that wasn't how I wanted to get in the lake! I just headed for the dock and left my H to get the jet ski! I lost a flip flop, but I made my H go out and get it after he brought back the jet ski.
We all loved the boat, Jack really loved it, watching the water.
We had no internet so we were forced to relax. It was great for all of us!

Now time to pack up again for out Colorado Trip! Samantha is so excited to see my parents house for some reason. So that should keep her busy for a while!

Monday Already...

The weekend seemed to fly by way too fast for me. My H got home safe and almost well yesterday. Thursday afternoon while he was in Roanoke VA, he had to take a trip to the ER. He had Pneumonia and was very dehydrated. So they gave him lots of fluids, breathing treatment and antibiotics. We are so happy daddy is home!
Last night Sam lost a tooth, well she had been waiting for dad to come home and help her pull it out. Jack really didn't know what to think of that. During which dad was trying to watch Tiger Woods play. He missed and Jack turned around and says to us " Tiger Woods missed it."
It was so funny, he likes to watch golf and he gets it.
Today on my to do list. Laundry, eye appt. Later this week I need to get the dog groomed and oil changed in the van.

Bubble Fun!

We haven't been up to much. Jack is still sick with his cold. I took him to the Dr. this morning. He has an ear infection, and she said he had puss pockets in the back of his throat. yuck.
So they put him on an antibiotic and some ear drops, which he hated so that should be fun to do 2x's a day for the next 10 days. But anything to make him feel better.
My H is leaving for 10 days tomorrow. I plan on finishing up my albums as much as I can.
We got all the school supplies, so Sam is ready for 5th grade. Wow, that is scary... 5th grade. Time goes so fast. My dad has always said that. He also says that the older you get the faster the years go by. I do see that now.
I am starting to make a pile of things I need to take to Colorado. Samantha and I are getting really excited! It will be here before I know it.
I was so Happy when Johnson & Johnson came out with their new bubble bath for babies. Jack loves it, he will get a hand full of bubbles and ask me to blow them. He are some photos from the other night in the tub.

Today my hubby was going to go out of town again for work. I got him out this am and he called about an hour later and said he was on his way home! So I am a happy camper! It seems he is always having to leave, for a week or more.
He also cooked dinner tonight, I love that! But it always seems he has to dirty every dish we own. So the clean up is a pain. But that's ok.
Jack is getting sick again. :( He has been coughing and had a runny nose now for a couple of days.
For some reason it feels like I can't keep him well. He doesn't want to eat much at all, that makes me crazy. I know they don't need that much at one time. But it seems like everything I offer him he doesn't like.
Outside: it has been very hot, too hot, I am over it. I can't wait for Fall!!
Samantha and I went threw all her clothes yesterday. Oh, what a chore. It seems like I would always go in her room and she would ask me what should I wear? I would pick something and she would say yuck! Or she would come to me with a shirt and ask what would go with this? So we put all the outfits together in her closet. It was so nice today to see her in something that I don't think I have ever seen on her before!
Projects : Scrapbooking has come to a halt, I am not sure what to do about all the NY pictures. Put them in their own book or just add some of the best ones into the family book.
I am painting a little something for my mom, not much.
Tried to find these little boxes to make this Halloween thing I thought the kids would love (me too)
But haven't had any luck, I guess I need to keep looking.
Happy Weekend to everyone!
