Guest Blogger!!!

Hello everyone!!!  Man the rain lately is killing us here!!  We went from desperately needing rain to holy crap that's to much!!!!

I am writing this blog today to let you in on a little secret...  I have become a guest blogger on a pretty big blogging site  :)  That is the reason I have not been on here as much.  I have concentrated on getting up some great blogs on that site for them.

Brandi's Guest Blogs

There is a link to all the blogs I have submitted to the site.  but don't just read mine.  There are some great blogs on there by Robin!!

My life has been so busy and I feel like I have been tossed in about 12 different directions.  I Think.......  Think.....  July is going to FINALLY slow down some.   Softball is over.  All the crazy running is over.  Ballet does start back up but that is a one night a week class so no biggie there.  Our back yard has had a complete makeover.......

Huge oak tree gone...  Old yucky fence gone...  New fence installed.  This has been another thing I have been busy with.  And I still have a lot of work to do in the yard.

Old Settlers is fast approaching and so is school!!!!!  This summer has flown by and I have not gotten to do half of what I have wanted to do.  Hoping this month being more open for time we can accomplish just that!

Service Area 20: Fathers Day Fishing

Yesterday the Service Area girl scouts held their second annual fishing day at Camp Soar.  WE do it to celebrate Father's Day!!

The girls always have a blast and always catch alot of fish.  We have a potluck, but the Service Area supplies the hot dogs to roast over the fire.  We also enjoyed the paddle boats that Camp Soar has as well.

We plan to keep doing this as long as there is interest.  It was a beautiful day and everyone had a great time!!!

First fish for Colton

Not sure if the paddle boat was broken or if it was the operators ;)

New things to Glasstic

Glasstic Water Bottles has introduced a new feature to their already awesome bottles..

A tea filter basket!!  Since you can add hot or cold water to the Glasstic Bottle it makes it perfect for brewing loose leaf tea.

 It also works with anything you want to infuse in your water by keeping it away from your mouth when drinking!

They are also having a Father's Day Sale.

Go HERE if you are interested in these great shatterproof bottles!!

End of First Grade

So this happened..  My girl finished first grade!!!  Hard to believe.   I will have a pre k, 2nd grade, and 5th grader all next year.  
The last few weeks of school were a blast   Lots of fun activities with the kiddos, including the rainbow fish play that had been working extra hard on.  Bailey played Angel fish.

The next fun thing was a pizza party that Colton and I went to and had fun with the kids.  After the pizza party was fun with shaving cream.  Oh my!!!  I have never seen the kids as hyper and excited as they were playing with the shaving cream.  Colton even got in on the action.  

We also gave Mrs. Neely her end of the year gift this day.  It was an "Orange you glad it's summer" basket.  I try to get creative with the gifts and this is what I came up with after cruising Pinterst.

I have to say between the kindergarten and first grade classes I think I got more attached to the first grade.  I spent more time in class doing math and reading centers with them and really got to watch them grow.  Very blessed to have teachers that love to have the parents come in and help out.  

Ballet Recital and Suprise

So where do we begin on this crazy month.  One of the first major things that happened was the ballet recital this year.

Both of my girls take dance at Fusion Dance Center.  Bailey was in the Kidlet class that taught ballet and tap.  Hailey was in hip hop.

This year Bailey's costume was a cat!!!  Of all things lol.  Her favorite animal.  The Theme was Once Upon a Time.  One major plus this year.....  Only 1 costume change.  Last year was 4 I believe, which was great since Ronnie was out of town and was just me, grandma and Colton.  

Dress Rehearsal 


Tap (bad quality was taken with my phone)

Hailey is the one upside down lol

Now the Dance center has a new competitive team that they hand pick girls to join.  Guess who got a letter to join last week!!!!!!!  Bailey!!!!  So proud of her.  he worked very hard this past year and now she gets to join the team.  Now mommy may have to sell a kidney to pay for this but its worth it to see her do something she loves!!  Can't wait to see what the next year has in store for us.
