We had our last day of school at the preschool last wednesday. It was a half day. Josh had his last day on friday, so it is summer vacation here at our house!! Yay!! I had mentioned in my last post that I was going to teach summer school, but long story short I decided not to. I think it is the right thing for me because I have not been home all of the time for Josh because of my classes the last 4-5 years and he is getting to the age where soon he will be the one that will not be home. I want to spend as much time with him as I can. Josh and I went to a store called IPA yesterday and I was able to do some shopping for the preschool. I had my purchase order in hand and was able to spend $200, so we got in there and stocked up on things that we needed for the next school year. Josh enjoys teacher things, so I took him with me, he had never been to IPA and we had so much fun. We also had to go to Wal~Mart and pick up a few things, but that was not nearly as fun. Today my friend and co-worker Pat dropped by and brought me some things for my kitchen. She is redecorating and I am wanting to change decorations when we move, so I bought her things. She has a beautiful home. She decorated with the french coffee theme and the colors are really rich browns, black and burgundy. I wish we could sell our house. We haven't had many lookers lately. I am hoping that changes in June and July. I spent the weekend shampooing the carpets on and off. The rooms have all been cleaned, but I was working on some stains in the carpet and they are looking good now. Karl and Josh went to a baseball game on Sunday and that gave me time to work on the carpets. We are going to visit my mom and dad later today. My mom is cooking dinner, and that is always nice. She is a good cook. Josh has not been to visit them in a long time, so they will enjoy him. I guess I will wrap this up. I need to get in the habit of coming in here to post. Have a wonderful day!!

Congratulations on Summer Vacation! It's my favorite time of the year! LOL

I hope your house sells soon for you. I often wish we lived in the country, however, I love my house - and I've not found anything in the country that I love. Are you wanting to build a new house or buy a different one?

I don't blame you for wanting to have that extra time with Josh. Since I went back to work, I have MISSED seeing the kids so much. It makes me so sad. :(

Hope you have a good day!

Hi Lori I hope you enjoy your summer. I'm glad you get to stay with Josh. I see Morgan once a month. I try to things with her but it does not work out because she loves having sleepovers with her friends. She is growing up. Have a great week. Hugs

Hi Lori! Glad you can spend the summer with Josh. Ryan has his school picnic tomorrow and school ends Thursday but he will be going to summer school. Hope you get some action on your house,,, people like to get settled in before a new school year starts so it's a good time to sell. (((Hugz)))
