the 4th... from my camera

Not all were taken by me ... there was a fair bit of camera swapping going on. Now if we can just get the Ashley version we'll be set. Especially since I do believe she has the best ones,all 5 kids in the hammock!

Before and After

I can not believe that with all the drama this cut produced that I didn't post before and after pictures right away. Buh-bye hair. And I can say with out any sorrow that we love it. No muss no fuss and especially no nasty matted tangles. Now if I could get her over the "hollow eyed, I just had double ear infections that almost burst my eardrums but didn't tell anybody my ears were hurting until I started crying in my sleep and oh by the way maybe I have conjunctivitis too" look. Then we'll be golden.

I can't decide.

Further proof of just how uneventful our summer has been. I have more pictures of leaves in the summer folder than I do of kids (and not a lot either). Or is just more evidence for the neighbors "strange lady" file? These involved no dignity, my driveway, the rain and more than one neighbor driving slowly by wondering what I was doing sprawling on the ground.

The begining.

Summer started with an amazing VBS program at Church. The big girls had a wonderful time - it was nice to see them asking to go to church instead of whining about it.

Then we headed to Piedmont for a visit with Grandma and Grandpa who were down from IL.
Is there some rule that says a Mimi's house = junk food?
We make our own fun in the woods. Obviously.
So where was Evie? This was the start of our bad time summer. She was in bed with a very high fever ... soon to turn into a stomach virus.  See the exciting things I have to document this summer?

Delayed much?

Goodness, this have been a messed up summer which has led to some major blog delays. There has been somebody sick just about the entire time. And we had some majorly stressful weeks where we thought Nathan was going to lose his job (again) and we're still not sure it's a very secure.  So forgive me for posting pictures that are 2 months old. This was Juliana "helping" me clean out the fridge.
