Almost summer! Wow!





At times, this year seemed really to drag along..now it is flying by and I am not sure if that is good or not...It has been really beautiful here though and I have been spending a lot of time outside with the kids. I seem to be at the age where I am content to sit in a chair and watch them play...pretty scary...Julie and I got one of those big backyard pools and got it all set up...We also got a lock for the back door and the gates so it is safe with Andrew and Olivia....We go out there and float around while the kids play and splash. We are all brown despite sunscreen. I think the sun is pretty strong here because of the elevation. I finished my A R T banner and also did some "cute little goth girl" atc's..not sure how cute they are, and it is out of my comfort zone but it was kinda fun anyway...I also have been working on a queen size quilt for my oldest daughter..She graduates the thirteenth with her nursing degree...I already sent her a really cute outfit to wear so she had something special. Yesterday, Olivia's school had an "animal fair" her animal was a water buffalo...I had to go and take some pictures...She was pretty proud of her display...We made him out of Styrofoam. She is such a cutie anyway....That is about it for now!

Olivia is just adorable. And her water buffalo looks great. She must get her artistic ability from you! Love the banner! The goth girls, well, at least you are willing to work outside your comfort zone. I think that's important. Glad to hear there is nice weather someplace. It sure isn't here.

Hey Lady!!! I love your banners! And your goth atcs are, well, very goth! Olivia's animal fair project is wonderful!!! Sounds like you've got the right idea, a pool on hot days would be wonderful! Notice how it just suddenly gets really hot? :D
