Summer Break, I have enjoyed your stay so much this year. What fabulous times we have had together. I took so many pictures to remember you by, some of them are so darling. With Kelsey starting school tomorrow, it truly means our time is over. Oh how I will miss you!! Thanks for staying as long as you did and for extending our visit these last few weeks. I will try to enjoy the present and not look forward to our future visits too much, but it is so hard to tell you goodbye. I truly have loved the time we have spent together and will look back on this past summer with great memories.
Until our next visit . . .

These are pictures of the back of the quilt where you can see the quilting so much more and isn't it amazing?!?!?! Deonn did an excellent job. You can see more of her quilting at www.quiltscapesquilting.com.
This next picture is for my friend Maurice. Kelsey made this 'I Spy' quilt and put it in the fair this year and Maurice wanted to see it. Kelsey sewed all but about 7 stitches of this quilt. She tied it also. She even picked out the WILD flowery border fabrics. She is getting ready to start another project . . .

Our district is late in starting school this fall. We are not starting until Sept 1st and then Kendal's preschool doesn't start until the 14 or something like that. I am so glad we get to have a little more time together this summer. I am not sure I am ready for them to go back to school yet. Oh wait, maybe I am. I can think of a few things I would like to get done. But still, it is sad to see them leave me for the day again.

There were errors during upload.
You have exceeded your total photo upload quota.
We're sorry, but you have exceeded your photo upload quota. For more information, check out this Blogger help page.
I went to the help page and it tells me I have used my 1 GB of free Picasa photo storage and that I need to purchase more ($20/year). Has anyone done this? Should I really purchase more or just go delete a bunch of folders on Picasa?

Kendal, she was much braver than I expected
Larry gave me the giggles. His cowboy hat, his boots, his knee and elbow pads, and Kendal's pink bike with training wheels just made me laugh and laugh. His cowboy hat was so out of place with the grunge kids hanging out there with their skate boards, and he so does NOT need training wheels, but he and Kendal took turns with the bike and Barbie scooter. Larry would rather have a great time on a girl bike with training wheels than sit and do nothing while waiting for his turn with the scooter. What a great kid. He is quite the little dare devil too! I told him that I didn't want to go to the emergency room and he just laughed at me and said "OK." He got the respect of quite a few grungy teenagers with his moves!

I caught this picture and it just happened to be right after said accident. By the way, the kids had a super time and we are headed back to the skate park again tonight.

Kelsey is my little tree climber. She always climbs trees and she ALWAYS gets in trouble at one of the Grandma's house for doing it. Jen and I found this tree with the perfect broken branches to climb up. Kelsey probably could have gone at least 30 feet up, but not me. Jen is a great photographer, if only she could photoshop my hind end!

Matt, Kendal, and Kelsey got snuggled in well. Emmitt and I slept in the house. It was a good night's sleep for us all.

We have been in our house for 7 years in October. There is a light at the bottom of the stairs to our unfinished basement. When we moved in, it didn't work. As in the light switch at the top of the stairs didn't turn it on and neither did the switch at the bottom of the stairs. You see, it didn't work. How very inconvienent and annoying.
Well, 2 days ago for some strange reason, the girls and I put in a new light bulb. (no 'how many Cranes does it take to change a light bulb' joke here) You know what? It works! How ridiculous is that? Almost 7 years of thinking it was one way just because it was, and 30 seconds later, it is the opposite! Why do we just take someone else's word for it? Why do we just settle for things the way they are even if we don't like it? Why don't we change things that bother us?
