Okay, I know I need to stop doing these, but folks...I think they are here to stay. I will maybe begin housing them in a different place on my blog...but I'm addicted...
I love this song with these pics...the girls really are "home" when they are together. Like it or not. :)
I hope you enjoy it like I am!!

MY. THOUGHTS. EXACTLY.
I'm posting some first day of school pics...a week late...(I've been in denial for that long!)
Izzy Grace is in SEVENTH GRADE!!! And she looks like a 7th grader...
I didn't take MY first day of school picture...probably a good thing...
the tears would have you all choked up!

Shhh...don't tell, but we LOVE sidewalk chalk! We decided that there can't be enough happy messages spread around Frankfort, so we took to the sidewalks! Enjoy this video!!
Yes, we know that happy-ness was spelled wrong...we like it that way. We would really like to create the new word:
Have a happy-full day! Love, US!

I just tried my hand at making a video and I'm TOTALLY addicted! :) How cute are these kiddos when they're fishing?! I have to say, I've never considered fishing to be hectic, however, with four kiddos needing worms on their hooks (because a fish had nibbled theirs off, or it was in the grass, or the one that got away had a great snack), I had a lot to do...and it was hectic! :)

Lori, Evan, and Conner are showing their happiness factor...Conner COULDN'T pose any other way...he was too elated! You can see the happy in Evan's smile too!
Here are the three of us! We had a blast...don't let Sophie's sad look fool you! There was a huge swing at the jet ski place and she had just fallen off of it...got all bruised up...seems her little hiney was slippery on the swing! :( We live and we learn...don't you just hate that?!

I did it! Oh my...I dreaded it too! I actually had no idea how long it would take, how many t-shirts they had for me to cut, and what the whole process might look like...but I just went for it. It was soooooo hot outside, so I just decided that I'd stay in. I had girls sleeping and hanging out in the living room. "Now is as good of a time as ever," I told myself. "Maybe I should just pick up the craft room instead," I decided. Well, one thing led to another and here I am with all of the quilt squares caught up!!! I'm not going to actually sew the quilt right now because there will be plenty of other things to cut and put into it, but WHEW!!! what a reliefI actually stopped dreading the cleaning, cutting, and organizing and started LIVING IN THE MOMENT and ENJOYING the 'RIGHT NOW'!!! Yahooo!
Luh-huh-hove when that happens!!

- Dream journal for Izzy (she LOVES to remember her dreams!!)
- Book journal for Lori...record books you've read (she can't ever remember if she's read a book or not!)
- Sign that says: Who are these kids and why do they keep calling me mom?!
- Rocks with great words on them...inspire, love, peace, hope...etc.
- Little craft that I can do...
- Magnetic words...enjoy...sweet...etc.
- Shower losenge that is aroma therapy for headaches, good feelings, etc.
- Amy Butler bags...so cute
- Church windows that are primitive, but lovely
- Copper sculpture for the yard that spins...sooo cute, but it is 975 dollars, so I won't be bringing it home...
- Picture with about 20 doors...when we commented on it, the owner of the store told us that she had taken all of the pictures when she went to Italy a year ago...then put them together on a poster....it was even better once we knew the story had happy written all over it!!
ENJOY TODAY...I will be!!!

We have been to the beach, the art barn, the beach, horseback riding, and we will be heading back to the beach later on today! We are here checking the weather to plan the rest of the week! We have jet skis, duck ride, fishing, and other surprises still to go! I've finished one book, and have begun a new one...that I'm LOVING...called Driftwook Summer! Try it out...I want to be the main character, Riley...she has the perfect job--she owns a bookstore which is in the bottom of her house and she lives in a beach town...I'm just going to pretend that I'm Riley this week!
Talk to you soon,
Riley (aka Brenda)
