We are still into science experiments. It is so much fun to do science and art by the pool. I love this time of year. We started doing math mondays around here. We got the idea from a blog I love, "Child's Play". Thanks Child's Play! Last monday we did baseball math. The day was very busy and we were on our way to a baseball game so I made up word problems about baseball scores. Isaac did very well thinking about the answers and really enjoyed doing it. We will definitely be using that again.

We had a great time with our friends Rob and Kristie and thier boys on saturday night. We had a fish fry (and some grilled). We hope to get together again soon!

Went to Greenwood sunday. My neice turned 21 and graduated from Piedmont Tech. Congratulations Erica! My sister and brother in law and my parents are building a house on the lake. It looks great! Things are really coming along. Well, off for some more adventures!

Happy Birthday Russ!

My husband turned 46 on the 21st. We had a great time celebrating his birthday. I made him a white chocolate cheesecake with strawberry glaze on top. He really enjoyed it as we all did. We have been married for 23 years. Half of his life. It is amazing how fast time flies. I know I say that all the time but it truly does. Russ and I have had many ups and downs throughout the years but with the help of God we have always managed to get through it together. I thank God for giving me a wonderful man to share all these years with. I can't wait to see what's in store for the next 40 years! Adventure is out there!

Life is a Whirlwind!





It is amazing how time flies. You know that time is going at a break neck pace when your 7 year old thinks that something you did months ago was just last week. We have been having lots of adventures lately. Michelle got a new kitten. It is adorable.

Sunday the 2nd, Russ sang at Bethel Baptist Church for the 2 morning services. Then baseball practice. Then out for ice cream at Sweet Treats!
Monday it rained all day so baseball was cancelled. We had a great time staying home playing and doing science experiments.
Tuesday we went with friends to Issaqueena Falls and Stumphouse Tunnel to look for letterboxes but I left the clues at home so we just played around the falls and in the river instead. Then Cade had a ballgame that evening.
Wednesday Noah came over and played with the boys. Then ball practice and church.
Thursday was park day and errands and a ballgame for Isaac.
Friday was roller skating with homeschoolers in Anderson, shopping at Walmart and Toys R Us, then another ballgame for Isaac.
Saturday was 2 ballgames, time with Brandon, and a Hee Haw show that Russ and Michelle were in to raise money for the churches mission trip.
Sunday was Mothers Day. We went to my sisters house and my parents came up and my mother in law and Aunt Evelyn were there. We had a great day.

And here it is Monday again and we are starting it all over with all kinds of things on the agenda. Today we finished our science experiment we started last monday and spent a lot of time talking about and using fractions. We took the pool cover off the pool and the boys have asked all day if they could swim. We told them just a few more days.

But it is all good. The kids are happy and tired. I am happy and tired. And life goes on.
