Last Day of School

I can't believe it's already Melissa's last day of school. Ahhh pass the tissue. She's a reluctant grower-upper. She'd prefer to be in kindy taking naps and having snack time than being a grown up. She's planning on going to junior college in the fall.

We are looking at getting another car so that she will have something to drive (newer car for me most likely, then she can have my older one).  Cars are so expensive. Even used cars are so expensive. Kind of hard to get a job without a car when you live 12 miles from anything. She's been looking at doing some nanny jobs which would be perfect for her.

I guess I should really get on with my lists for the party next weekend! I'm such a procrastinator sometimes. Either that or things just tend to really sneak up on me. Yeah that's it!

I think I'm going to do a photo montage of every year's first day of school. I purposely took the kids pics in front of the same tree every year (should have picked another direction though since every year they complained about the sun in their eyes haha). Pin It

Just Jump In

I keep feeling like I can't blog anything new until I go back and blog the old stuff so I guess I should just jump in and GO!

Melissa graduates from High School on Saturday. I can't believe it! Time flies. Trevor's graduation is on the next Thursday. Lucky boy has one more week of school than she does. He will also be doing some summer school so that will be fun to figure out how to get him there from 9-1 when I work 30 minutes away and start work at 7:30.

I spent almost all of last weekend working on teacher's gifts my friend had me make for her. She works at a school and has 3 adopted boys so lots of teachers and staff she likes to give presents to.

 Fold up tote bags, sunglass cases and key fobs


and a mug cozy for good measure.

This is a little zippered bag for a neighbor friend, I still need to deliver that.

I also made this little bag for my friend Traci's birthday.

We went to lunch Sunday at this place called Canal Street Grille in Ripon. It was really good and not too expensive if you didn't buy a dinner entre. I got the crab cake sliders. The fries were these super thin things which were kind of ok. I think prefer them a little bit bigger. Actually I should have just asked if they had cole slaw instead :)


Phyllis, Ginny, Birthday girl Traci, me and Bev

I'm still trying to decide what I want to do this weekend. We have Melissa's graduation bright and early Saturday morning then the weekend is free. I really should be weeding my yard, one whole side is taken over by Bermuda grass but it's supposed to be hot so eh.

They are having the "Campground Jamboree" down at the campground this weekend too. I'm sure I'll wander down there at some point but I don't really want to spend the whole weekend down there.  My sister in law invited us to come over on Monday for a BBQ. I'm definitely glad it's a 3 day weekend!

When you have more people than chairs? Awesome!

Gene's Service

Here's a few pictures from Scott's Dad's funeral day

Pretty flowers from my sister in law's work

and from her son who lives out of state

Scott with 3 of his sisters, Carolyn, Linda, and Suzie

My great nephews on the left, my kids on the right

Scott's mom and our niece Laureen

3 generations for them

Jessica went and got a tattoo, 76 was her grandpa's race car number and the red and white checks are for that too, he used to call her his nurse so that's what the stethoscope is for, and he had a heart pillow when he had heart surgery that he let her have when she was little and she put it in the casket with him so that is what the heart is for.

They let them put his casket on his truck for the ride to the cemetery

March Random Pics

Random pictures from March

Melissa had to bring home one of those electronic babies for the weekend. She was so exhausted and super happy when it was time to turn it back in haha.

Braiding Jessica's hair :)

Certain times of the year the sun comes through the windows at work and blinds me for about 10 minutes

Love this Buddha at the chicken bowl place by my work

Random work meeting doodles. Always end up looking like vaginas now that my friend pointed that out haha

Old stove at the thrift store. It was down to $100 last time I saw it, love all that oven space

Giant Husky dogs at the thrift store

Love finding fabric there

Who pays for empty egg cartons at Target? Quite a few people after I posted this on Facebook.

Went to the flea market on my lunch, came back with $5 worth of fabric

Last day of winter fire night. Funny enough the weather got crappy for the next week

Bad day blues

My stress cold. No one else got sick. Weird how our bodies do that. 

Kids looking through scrapbooks for pictures with their Grandpa

yum yum

Adorable use of vintage sheets

Jess was working at the dollar store and they had buttons. She brought me all the containers they had (7). I need to get another box to put them all away still.
