Phone Pictures

Every so often, I have to go through my phone and delete pictures. So I'll pick my favorites and send them to Flickr before deleting them.

Here are some of my most recent...

Last weekend on our camping trip...Joshua and Jennifer in the back seat.

Homeschoolers' Addiction

I don't know what it is, but man oh man, when all those school supplies start coming out, I have to CONTROL myself!!!!

Pencils! Pens! Notebooks! Folders! Clips! Crayons!

What do you mean my junior doesn't need crayons?!?! But! But!!!!

That kind of makes me a little sad actually....they grow up much too fast.

But really, it takes some serious self-control action going through those aisles! Today though, I saw something that I really liked....and even though I had already bought notebooks for the school year, when I saw these, I HAD to have some!

After Midnight

Yesterday I went out to dinner and a movie with my neighbor and some other ladies. When we walked out of the theater around 12:04 am, this was the beautiful sight that greeted us.
