Sorry For the Silence

Yes, I am still alive.

It's been a long couple of weeks around here.  Lots of turmoil here...normal stuff for normal kids, but life-shaking for traumatized kids.  :-(

We went back to Mom's to take care of an estate sale.  It was long, hard, hot work and not much fun.  I was so very thankful that there was a little neighbor boy next to my brother's place (where we had the sale).  He played with Cupcake all week long, with only a few little squabbles.  She learned to ride a bike - expert style.  Not only can she start and stop on her own, she can avoid dogs and other kids, pull tight corners and dodge mud puddles...or hit them square on, whichever she prefers.

Luke has had two weeks of camp in a row, plus going back to Mom's, so he has not been home in 3 weeks now, except a day here and there.

Tim is working for me this summer, since he couldn't find a job.  I'm getting some long awaited honey-do's accomplished and he's getting some money for college and spending.

Sugar is doing well.  Really growing up into a young lady.  YIKES!  She is beautiful and seems to really be coming into her own.

Sorry I have no pictures.  My kids won't let me take them anymore.  :-(

Steve is traveling some these days and I'm holding down the fort a few days at a time.

We scrapped our plans to go camping this summer for vacation and we decided to go to Florida with some friends later this summer.  I'm pretty excited about it.  I love camping, but the weather has not cooperated this year, and now it's too hot for the next several months.  So instead, beaches and pools and shopping (Me) and golf (Steve).   

So, there you have it.  Our recent history and future plans, summed up.

Blessings to you,
