Rain, Rain, go away....

It rained all night and it is going to rain all day. We are going to get around 5 inches of rain. Yuck, it doesn't help me feel any better. I have Jack's cold. My head feels so heavy! I don't have any motivation today. I would really like to crawl back in bed.

Around the house: I am trying to get the garage cleaned up but it is very hard to load up the van to go donate things when it is raining so hard.

Samantha is doing well in school, she seems to like it, and is putting in alot of effort. I had to order her Yearbook already, $56.00! Wow, I was shocked, for a middle school yearbook? I had to order it by today.

Jack's favorite thing to play with is of course Packrat, if I will let him get her out. He has been playing with puzzles alot the 26 pc ones. Jack has been sleeping in his car bed, but he keeps getting out 10 times a night. I am ready to put him back in his crib!

So Happy Fall is on the way!

Survived first week of Middle School!

Happy to say Samantha survived the first week of middle school! =) And so did I.
Today was kinda ruff for her she had to dress out for P.E. and she had to go to the nurse first and take her inhaler. By the time she got to the locker room she had 1 min to dress out and some lady was counting down the seconds. Sam said the nurse didn't even give her a note. I thought that was a bit odd. So we will have to get that straight next week.

The weather today was beautiful, cooler! I think Fall in finally on the way!

I had to find a baby shower gift for my sister-in-law, her baby shower is tomorrow. I also need to make a taco dip to take.
I also have an appointment for Scooby to get a bath tomorrow. =)

I am tired and have a headache, so off to bed I go! The hubby is watching football so shouldn't be hard to go to sleep!

I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!

The Lake was wonderful....

We had a wonderful time at the lake! The kids had a blast swimming in the lake!

Ronnie and Bonnie met us up there the first day, then they left Sunday evening. Then we had some friends come and join us on Thursday-Saturday. It was fun to have Brian, Emilee, and Anthony there. Samantha and Anthony would play ping pong, pool, the Wii, and Air hockey. They liked to run and jump off the deck and do ticks. Jeff and Brian work together. I enjoyed hearing Emilee talk about her canning, and making strawberry jelly, and telling be about her horses. I hope they also had a wonderful time! Anthony is a few years older than Sam, but they got along great! Jack of course liked having someone else to play with him.

There was deer in our front yard every morning. We saw wild turkeys. One night I found a snake on the front porch. I was amazed when I found a praying mantis, it was so strange. I was watching Sam walk down to the boat house, I leaned over the railing on the deck and I saw him turn his head and look right at me. I ran and got the bug cage, I had to show him to Jack. Jack wasn't as excited as I was about it. Then Emilee and I went to let him go and get a few pictures of him, and he jumped onto her leg and Jack started SCREAMING! Then it jumped onto my glasses, it was so funny! Jack wanted NOTHING to do with him.

Samantha lost a tooth while we were at the lake! I told her what a summer to remember!

There was a Dog named Mason that lived across the lake in a boat house with his family. Jack loved him, his owner would bring him over on the float when we were in the lake and we would chat, she was really nice and Mason was so friendly! On the last day he actually swam over by himself.

We all had a great time and can't wait to go back next summer!
