 I took the girls over to a friends house for a little swim and barbecue to kick off summer.
 These (Mia Maids) are girls after my own heart. 
 In between the fun, Anna (above in blue shirt) pulled out her funky hair iron and curled our hair.
 I kinda love it, especially on Kayla.
I told her she's totally hired.

This is a friendship mask that Stevie made of her and her friend Lucia from school.  You'll notice that one eye is blue (Stevie's) and the other is brown. (Lucia's)  She had her face plastered and than painted it.  This is far better then anything I ever made in Middle School.  She's got artistic skills.  I love the detail in the hair.
 My favorite though?  The UGLY JUG.  All my kids have made them and they go on the "Shelf of Shame" (as Steve refers to it) because we LOVE displaying such hideous art work.  I love the bulging eye and the tongue licking the inside of its nose.
 Steve voted Stevie's the UGLIEST of the UGLY'S.
Well done Stevie!

I'm not a fan of school field trips.  But if it means mingling with 100 6th graders just to be with HER?  Count me in.  
Lost River Gorge was beautiful and all, but SHE was where the fun was at.
See what I mean?
We headed into some CRAZY caves...some that don't deserve to be labled 'caves'...especially when you have to shimmy through on your belly just to fit through.
(please excuse the facial expression in this picture...I was about to be stepped upon)
We purposefully stayed behind so we could linger longer in the dark places.
She's definitely a girl after my own heart.
 If it's an adventure...count us in.
And if you make goofy faces while trying to take a picture with can bet you'll find it on the blog.
I love her.

 This came in the mail the other day...
It's an angel wing with Ben's name on it and a REAL pearl.
It's beautiful!
THANK YOU dear friends of mine.
