Audrey made it home from camp! She had a great time, enjoyed old friends and made new friends. I'm glad she's home. Surprisingly, so is Evan!!

Went to a scrapbook crop from 9am until 11pm Saturday. It was excellent. I got 14 pages completed! WOOHOO! Thanks to Stacie Mandrell (owner of Scrappin' Creations) for hosting it. Unfortunately, I could only attend the one day out of three. Imagine what I could've gotten done if I was there the whole time!!

I'm very sad it is Sunday and I have to go to work on Monday; but the good news is we're off on Friday.

Have a great week!!

What a week!!

What a week! First of all Governor Mark Sanford is missing, then admits he is having an affair. Then Ed McMahon dies, then Farrah Fawcett and lastly Michael Jackson. Icons from my teenage and adulthood. Although Michael became kind of a whacked out guy, he was awesome when I was in high school and college. He sang (and wrote) some of the best music to dance to. My Zeta sisters and I dancing at the Dixie Electric Company is one of my favorite college memories!

Speaking of Zeta Tau Alpha (ZTA), the Eta Pi Chapter is once again having a reunion. This time in Cincinnati, hopefully in October. It's been over 20 years since I've seen these women I love and cannot wait to see them again!

Audrey will be home in 2 days from camp. YEAH!! I miss her very much. But I will be at a scrapbook crop when she comes home. I'll have to take a break and come home to see her!

Have a great Friday!!

It is AFRICA hot!!!

Bob and I are trying to get the yard ready for a church get together. But it's so hot, we floated in the pool! I threw Oscar, Meredith McKenzie's and Wendy McKenzie's dog, in the pool!! He won't get near me yet - and it's been over an hour ago!

Audrey's leaving for confirmation camp tomorrow. She'll be gone for a week. Evan is excited - I'm losing my buddy that keeps me company when Evan has all-star baseball practice and games! I'll miss her a lot, but it's good for her to be gone. She loves it!

Pictures from today include dh, Bob, throwing Audrey in the pool and pictures of a tag album I'm going to sneak into Audrey's suitcase tomorrow. It's from K and Company. I love the way it turned out. I put 3 bible verses in it: Galations 3:26-27, John 3:5 and Matthew 5:14.

Flower Soft

Kathy Brennan came over tonight. We played with a cricut cutting machine and flower soft. The flower soft is really cool! We added it to a wheelbarrow for the flowers then made flowers on pieces of cover wire. I'm not sure which one is more fun!!

Both Audrey and Evan has sports camp this week. Audrey is in an 8am-5pm basketball camp and Evan has a 1/2 day baseball camp. Audrey CRASHED on the sofa around 7pm! Unfortunately, she woke up and is watching MY vampire movie - The Lost Boys.

Have a great week!

Carolina Girls Shoebox Swap

Saturday was the 7th Carolina Girl's Shoebox Swap. We had a great time! The cards and other items we made are below!

Last week, we hosted Jenifer Luceno from Watermark Denmark Youth Encounter group. It's amazing! We have hosted 4 years now and we have been so lucky and blessed to have 4 terrific people! But what makes Jen so special is she's the first lady we hosted. Audrey was thrilled! Jen's first 2 hours at the house were spent braiding Audrey's hair. A week later, and the braids are still in! Below is a picture of Audrey, Evan and Jen. Evan is such a goofball! He just finished baseball practice when this picture was taken. He normally isn't that sweaty!! OK - he normally is, but we'll pretend he isn't!

I also want to say congratulations to my nephew, Ethan, who was mentioned in one of last year's posts. He made it to State Finals in Track and had never been on the track team before! He is getting ready to go to Hawaii to play football for two weeks, too. What a way to end your senior year in high school!
