Finally Finished the Watergarden

This started as my birthday gift, but we could not get the top part of the waterfall right.
So we finally tore everything down and started over.
Now all that is left is the landscaping. I LOVE IT!!!
Thank you Honey.

More Cheer Pictures

She is so full of spirit. She loves Cheering.

Not such of fan of the Texas Heat.

I just love these pictures.

Jessi's messy learning

Jessi was diagnosed with Sensory Integration Disorder. She has lots of issues in all of the major senses, so she gets therapy to help her. Movement and touch are her biggest issues. She has a new swing system in her bedroom she LOVES.

She has a really hard time with stuff touching anywhere but her hands, so we played with shaving cream to help. This is something I did with Alex and you never really think much about it.

Well when I placed some cream on her arm, she got very I quickly cleaned her up. We started again and this time she did it all by herself.

We pretended she was a little green monster. I never thought something so simple would bring me so much joy. I was so very proud of her. I never doubt that with her determination and personality she can overcome anything.

I carried the little green monster to the shower and magically my little princess returned all squeaky clean.

Why you don't let 6 year olds Drive

I'm not sure if it was the cell phone or radio station that distracted Jessi.....but the poor guy under the car would like to know!

First Day of School

This was a really tough year this year. We had not decided where Jessi was going to school until the Monday before. She is repeating Kindergarten due to some learning differences she has. She knows all the material, just can't reproduce it in a typical school testing environment.

Alex was very excited this year. He is fitting in more now that
he plays football. He likes his teacher and seems to be handling all the added activities well.

I hope this year goes well, it has been the most stressful 1st day of school that I can remember.


A new chapter in our lives has started. Alex wanted to play Jessi was going to be a cheerleader (she wanted to be one last year but I said no).

So now we are so much busier than ever before.

It is so much fun watching them perform. Jessi is a natural and Alex had so hidden abilities.

Life will never be slow again.

Mike's Birthday

Mike, wanted something to tinker with. So rewarding him for all of his
support during my school, I
encourged him to get an
Austin Healey that he wanted.

The great adventure turned south
and it is a long story.

The Healey arrived on Mike's
birthday weekend.

It is a fun little car. Alex loves it.

I hope he has fun fixing up his car. He desires to have something of his own.
