Life for me..

 Well I feel like SOOO much has been happening-mostly embarrassing things!  That just don't really lift my spirits-but life does go on!

We found a buyer in Boise for our truck-we're on our way meeting him half way-in Burley.  On the way there our truck over heats-so we're not selling it, make it back to Pocatello to a repair shop, visit Grandma and Grandpa Carter they are going to bring the keys to the mechanic in the morning.  It was a good surprise visit with them!  But it's touch and go we can't figure out what's wrong with the truck..oh well.

First up-Katelyn likes taking the lids off my flour and sugar in the laundry room and playing with it-yay-NOT  Guess I have to go back to taking those lids on and off again-the hard way.

 A few weeks ago-the boys have been going to the canal that's behind our neighborhood but on this side of the railroad tracks, they had so much fun. They went every day for several days, then begged me if they could bring home a snake-I said sure but it stays outside and only for 24 hours then they had to take it back.  Look how proud they are of our very first pet..well sort of-but the look on Brandon's face is love and joy.


 Well the day it's time to get rid of the snake the kids are just dying to go over there, Marie wants to go and I let her because she's with the boys, there is water over there but I wasn't concerned.  About 10 minutes later Brandon comes home alone..he says the others wanted to stay-it's maybe a 2-3 minute bike ride over there-so I think I'll just drive over there in a few minutes and bring them back.  Well about 5 minutes later Tyler comes busting through the door informing me that there is a cop dude out front waiting for me.  So somebody had called the police concerned that there were some young children alone playing near water.  I was informed that the canal is fuller than normal right now and is dangerous-which I wasn't aware of, so I guess I'm grateful-but it's embarrassing because he's in the front yard with the lights on, and the other officer is escorting Marie home-she's biking her little tricycle while he walks right by her..just embarrassing..we no longer play over there!  Also the previous week I get pulled over by an officer, because inside a residential area I apparently didn't make a complete stop at a stop sign!  So I had to pay a $90 ticket!

 This is the boys swinging spider style-not sure where they learned but they think it's great!

 This is what Katelyn will look like with glasses-not too bad!-they are glasses of a friend that was at our house.

Last Wednesday-I'm in a crazy hurry because I'm late!  I'm a cub scout wolf den Mom and it was the day to go to scout camp!  I'm 5 minutes later than I should be and I still have to drop the kids off and head over to carpool at the church-I hate being late, I'm just crabby and mad that I'm late-well while backing out of the garage I totally forget Eric isn't at work because I was so frazzled he stayed to help get the kids ready and I'm gunning it out of the garage and smash right into our beautiful red sports car..I'm so sorry car-we love you!  Eric was upset I could see it in his face and eyes but told me to just go, he'd be okay.  I text him how sorry I am when I'm at the church and he responds by saying they are just things I love you-which made me shake it off while I had to drive 5 boys in a vehicle to scout camp!  But when I got home it was so hard to face Eric even though what was done was done-and he'd moved on and forgiven me-all I could do was cry and think about how stupid I was, because I was late it would have been okay-we had planned for plenty of time to get the boys to the camp.  It's all I can think about-it's just horrible, I had to pray and get help to forgive myself.

Here's the damage of our van, I mean the bumper is totally's just bad!

On a happier note-Marie got a new bike!  She said she didn't want one for her birthday-that she liked her tricycle, but then a week later reminded me she didn't get one for her birthday-so I caved because I'm sick of toting her around in the child carrier trailer thing, she loves it!
 This is my garden!  My Dad made these gardening boxes while he was here this summer-the strawberries are doing awesome!

 I was fortunate enough to get some good tomato plants that were already big, cucumbers, cantalope and watermelon-have NO clue how they grow in Idaho..but it's exciting.
 And our peas are doing great-feels so good to actually be growing something!

Here's the girls having fun in the tub!
