The wonderful, yet often hairpulling life story of a stay-at-home mom of five cuties (Hailey, Shelby, Dylan, Ashley & Logan) and the journey through life raising our family with the best hubby around (love you, Kevin), and enjoying the blessings God provides to us daily while trying to keep it all in perspective when bumps in the road arise!

Pops is awesome!
Enough said! He worked his rear off today. I hope he takes a break tomorrow. We appreciate him! Pics later :)
A few updated pics...up early for XC. I love how they gather at the BMS flagpole :)
Shelby did great...her foot is no longer hurting...and she didn't stop on her 2.5mile run.
Proof of Pop's awesomeness...Shelb even helped with cleanup.
I think it's looking awesome...and Pops is no spring chicken, so I know this took a lot of his energy today. And I don't even think I heard him blurt out a bad word. He might have mumbled one or two under his breath, but he kept pretty quiet (quiet for Pops that is :))...though the girls were worried about him and his sighing and disheveled look :)
Shucking corn...that's what you do in Indiana!
First to be packed. She was a little overwhelmed so Nina helped her. They did a great job. Now she can relax the next 2 days.
Funny part of our day. Vball in the house. She is trying to get used to using knee pads. D helped.
I think D had more fun than she did :)
Yikes, Shelb! And sweet Nina and Lo in the background doing puzzles. :)
Still at it. Good ol' Pops! It was a lot of caulking...too much really.
But she perked up and played her 1 hour of violin.
Nina's great...digging right in with the boy fun :) Lots of puzzles...and cars.
They built a new magnatile fort at the end today.
Still working on that overhand serve...but it's getting better every day! I know I couldn't do an overhand serve when I was 13. Gotta start doing those pushups, Shelb!
I came home to Ash outside painting with Nina....and D had gone to the bank to get more coins...pennies and quarters. He now only needs 3 more state quarters...Missouri, Washington, and Colorado!
I forgot to bring her a snack after vball and before violin....but Nina had pity on her and stopped at DQ really quick since we were in their rental (and not in our non-ac'd car) Yumm...DQ ice cream!
Final summer lesson with Emily. Now Shelby officially gets a 2 week break from violin. Nice! Working on her new solo. A long one.
Someone might have fallen sleep. zzzzzz She said she was just resting her eyes and listening to the music, but I saw her lean against the piano. I think she was almost snoring. Love you, sleepy Nina!
Nina was caught up in watching bunnies...she doesn't see them much in FL. :)
Quick library stop. Her reading program is officially done and she's entered to win a drone or a fun doodle 3 D thing. We'll see if she wins this year!
She always keeps us on our toes :) It is not uncommon for her to wear Hailey's old heels at the dinner table. Today she wore them with her vball socks. Attractive.
Our delicious dinner...and some sass behind it :)
In trouble for not obeying...no heels til school starts. Bummer.
Neverending hugs for Nina.
Nina and Pops were awesome helping Shelb with dishes. She was overwhelmed and a little mad I was making her do them.
our own ice cream sandwich dessert. yummy :)
Still doing puzzles in the evening...
2nd person to get packed...nice!
Getting ready for Pops to paint the room. Stuff off the walls and floor.
Love this. I know it's blurry, but they were cracking up...over a pic of Ash in Hailey's bikini and posing with her clone years ago. Too funny :) Cherish those smiles :) :) Love my family!
