My first kit is up

The first kit I put together is now available for preorder at Check it out and let me know what you think.

What a week!

This week is VBS at our school, so we've all been really busy. We leave the house at about 6:30 am so we can be at church at 7am, then we don't get home until at least noon. So needless to say we're all wiped out, but it's sooo worth it! This years theme is water works park and the children are all having a blast. Dave is the director and he's really just a big kid. He runs around in swim trunks and a lifeguard shirt. If that's not enough he alternates between water wing and wearing an inner tube. I'll have to try to catch a photo tomorrow.

She's back

My camera made it's way home early Tuesday morning and I've been taking a ton of photos since. Unfortunately our big computer is acting up so I just have a few photos here on the laptop, but I'll share them.

The baby is my friend Kerrie's 2 1/2 week old son Damian, who is just a doll. He really is such a good baby. He's one of those babies that just really doesn't cry, he just whimpers. He's not even convincing when he's hungry.

The flower is the first zinnia in my garden. Can you believe I grew this from seed? I've never had a green thumb, I kill mostly any plant I've ever had. So to have these plants that are almost to my waist is a new thing for me. There must be something in the Guam soil, because all I did was drop a couple seeds in the ground and they grew. Dave has bought me two rose plants in the last few months and they are thriving too. I'm going to be so disappointed when we go back stateside and everything I touch dies.

Schools out for summer!

And the kids are having a blast. Their last day of school was Thursday the 14th. Thursday evening the girls had Brownies, after that a couple friends and I took all our kid out to dinner then to see Firehouse Dog at the base theater. Friday they had a birthday party to go to at the base pool and they had a great time. That evening a bunch of us from the building sat outside and chatted while the kids all played together. At one point there were 10 of them inside my neighbors house and surprisingly enough there were no fights, no one coming and whining or complaining, it was very nice. On Saturday Caitlynn had another birthday party to go to and Dave and I took Hannah and Elijah to Coldstone for some ice cream. Unfortunately after I picked Caitlynn up for the party my back started acting up. I have no idea why, but my whole upper back tightened up, it hurt to walk, stand straight, sit, basically everything. So poor Dave had a pretty lousy Father's Day because after church I spent most of the afternoon laying down. Today it doesn't hurt to walk, and just a little to stand or sit up straight, so it's getting better. It still hurts to twist which made pulling out of parking spaces very difficult today. Hopefully one more goodnight of sleep will cure it.

The girls started Brownie Day Camp today, they enjoyed it but were both exhausted when they got home. The camp runs from 9am-5pm, plus 30-40 minutes of drive time each way, so it's a very long day for them. Elijah enjoyed having me all to himself, not having to compete with his sisters for my attention. I think by about Wednesday he will be over it and miss his sisters.

Next week is VBS, which we're really excited for. The theme for this year is Waterworks Park, so each activity is named for different attractions at a water park. This year I'm doing registration instead of crafts, and then I get to fill in wherever they need me when I'm not busy.

My camera has been finished being repaired for about 4 days now, unfortunately it still hasn't shipped. Supposedly when they do ship it it'll be 2nd day Fedex, but I don't know if it takes longer to Guam or not. We'll see.

I got my first bunch or goodies from to work with and I'm so excited, can't wait to get started playing with it all. Don't forget to check out, especially is you're looking for a small forum just starting out. This place has lots of potential and I'm glad I get to watch it grow.

My wireless router is not wanting to play today, so I'm on Dave's laptop, which is driving me nuts. I don't have any of my favorite, or my photos etc. Hopefully it'll be in the mood to play nice tomorrow!
