I'm baaaackkkkk...

I so miss writing here.  I really love writing...I always have...almost as much as I love talking!  LOL  I love being able to post pictures as I love taking p hots too.  And blogging is really a way to do both.  But it takes time...and our days are so full.
  There is a  very sad update to Spencer's story.  About three weeks ago...his  Dad committed suicide.  He also had battled alcoholism and had been doing great.  But Spencer's death ( also by suicide )  caused him more pain then he could handle.  Please keep Spencer's mother and younger brother in your prayers.  I can not even begin to imagine.....
The boys have been busy working.  ALl three of them work together for the dame lawn maintenance
company.  The other day I looked out the window at school and saw them mowing the cemetery across the road.  I love seeing them together!  AND I am so glad their job provides them with health insurance.  It sure puts my mind at ease.  They are good men and I am proud of them. I find it hard to believe that David will be 21 in a few weeks...How has the time gone so fast...but of course Tim will be 29 in Oct. and Paul is married!!

Here we all are on Memorial Day!

Sierra is doing well.  She had blossomed in kindergarten and has become quite the reader.  We take turns reading to each other now at night and i love it.  She is so enthusiastic about it.  She is so stinin smart  its hard to stay one step ahead of her.  Yesterday I asked her what she wanted for breakfast ...she replied" an egg"  I said what kind and she said  " a chicken egg!!!  Too funny...right!  She is a handful at times...still has a mind of her still having some problems with boundaries and doing what she wants even if she has been told no.  But she has come a far way and she is such a delight!!  But we are working hard on behavior and focusing!!!  I am diligent as a parent.  I have been having such a hard time lately seeing the parenting, or better yet, lack of parenting, that is occurring.  I will be posting about it soon.  It really has me worried....
Next Friday brings the end of the school year.  We will be leaving on Saturday for our first camping trip.  The following week I start( July 1) summer camp.  I am thinking that this may be my last year....after almost 25 years of doing camp  I think it is time to pass it on...Time for some new blood!!!

I will be posting again soon...some photos showing what we have been doing!!!  if you stop by please read a comment so I know you have!!!
