They just got finished spraying the front and side yard for grass. I can't wait for it to come in. Preston can't wait to mow it either. Once this gets established we can complete the back and garage side. YEA!! Maybe we can cut down on the dust situation. ;)

Here are some pics of the kids. Actually just Will and Lauren. Jacob still doesn't like for me to take his pictures (reminds me of someone). The ones you do see of him are when he completely doesn't expect it.
Jacob did ask me to put in the last picture of him and his friends riding dirtbikes. He is on the green bike. Naturally you can't really see any part of him.
Will on his sit and spin

Last night we had some friends come over for dinner and has a blast. Erin, Brooke, Preston and I all went to high school together. Over the years we had somewhat lost touch, but have really enjoyed getting to know each other again, and their husbands. Erin and her husband, Matt, moved back from Odessa several months ago. It has been a lot of fun having Erin around again. Brooke and her husband Patrick live in Houston. They have come to town for several weeks this summer. They have a baby girl who will be turning one next month.

Something was really funny here.
Erin teaching my kids all kinds of new tricks.

This picture was taken by Lauren, even with the haze I thought it was so cute!

Okay..so not really. But I did make some headway. I (we; me and the kids) spent the night cleaning out closets, under beds and in drawers. I am happy to report 12 trashbags full will be donated tomorrow. There closets can actually be stepped in now. Go figure. I also went a step further and organized the media closet; alphabatized movies and dvd'. Here are some pics of proof.
Much more to do, maybe another day ;)

After thinking about it all night, I have decided I am going to start off small so I don't get overwhelmed. I will hopefully add to this list in the near future.
1. Paint console in office
2. Plant new front flower bed
3. Of course, clean out kids (and my) closets
4. Paint Lauren's bathroom floor (yes, I said paint)
I hope to tackle one if not two of these things this weekend. I will post pics after.
Wish me luck!

Okay so I got this idea from a friend's blog who read this from BooMama's blog. I have so many things I want to do over the summer, I don't think I can list them all. Even though we live in a brand new house, the list goes on and on. I'll make my list tonight (that's how bad I am, I don't even have a list yet) and will post tomorrow. Visit the blog and challenge yourself!

I am not sure why a child of mine and Preston's would even remotely be interested in basketball, BUT.... Will absolutely loves it. We can't go through Sam's without going down the isle where the basketball goal is. He spots them everywhere we go and talks endlessly about them. He always wants to play. When he was in the hospital we made his little IV pump thing into a goal so he would be entertained. Anyways... here we are watching the playoff game and everytime it comes on he sits mesmerized talking to himself. I couldn't resist not taping him. He did get a little carried away though once he realized he was in the spotlight.

The boys having "tube wars". We could never convince Lauren to get on.
Jacob wake boarding.
We went to a part of the lake called Dripping Springs and it had these cliffs you could jump off. Everyone did it---well except me and Will of course. You'll have to look close though, I can't figure them out on some of the pics. (Maybe click on it and it will make it larger).
Here's Will sporting his brother's sunglasses.
The last day there back at Preston's mom's house it rained in the afternoon and while the big boys threw the football, Will decided to do other things with the ball ;) As you can see he was obviously the classiest child on the block running around barefoot with nothing on but a diaper and dirty t-shirt.
It was so much fun watching Will "discover" these puddles. I guess I've never let him play in the rain puddles before. I had to video it. If you listen carefully you can hear the pitter patter of his little feet. Hope you enjoy the short clip.
And that pretty much sums it all up. We now must get back into our normal routines.We had a great time and can't wait to do it again next year. Thanks everyone.
On a side note, tomorrow is Father's Day. I am very lucky to be the wife of the most fantastic father of all times. I am the daughter of a wonderful man who has taught me so much. I also have the privilege of having a most terrific man as my step-father. I AM BLESSED! Happy Father's Day to all of you dad's out there.
