So, how about you? Do you test your kids?

Then we took a drive down to the beach to play.
We've learned three times, yes THREE times, this past week that if the door off our kitchen gets left open swallows will fly into our house. Twice I've found one of these guys flying around my kitchen and once there was one flying circles around in my bedroom. Funny you say? You know when you're walking outside and a bird is above you? What is your fear? That it will poop on you, right? Well, what do you think will happen to your bed when the bird is flying around??? Oh yeah, that part's NOT so funny!!

Do you have hobbies?
I have a few. I used to have more but I’m sure that all of you know that when you have kids it puts some limits on your life. One of the things I’ve tried to maintain is scrapbooking.
I may only pull the stuff out once or twice a year, but it’s something I’m not willing to give up. For each of my kids I’ve tried to accomplish a scrapbook of their first year of life. I pulled out the box of albums yesterday to look at a picture and realized that I’m behind.
Shocking right? Haha.
I’m about halfway through the first year of my fifth child. Looking at all the finished albums I felt all inspired and ready to pull out all the paper, stickers, etc to get caught up.
Then I remembered why I stopped halfway through an album.
It’s not that we haven’t taken any pictures, they are just ALL on the computer.
Nothing I can put my hands on, cut out and make it look all neat. I’m sure it’ll take me awhile but today I’ve started uploading pictures to order prints. Hopefully in a couple of weeks when the pictures finally arrive I’ll still be inspired.

I usually just upload my pictures from my computer, but Emily has introduced me to Flickr and there are just some fun tools to use!! The picture can go from ordinary to extraordinary. Okay, that was a lame line, but you get my point right? So, now I need to go get some things done so my Dh won't be ashamed that I told all of you on the internet that my house was messy. I may even get the sink so shiny Flylady would be proud!

With that said let me describe the three places we've been (as they are pretty much our only options at this time)
1. A church on the island about 10 minutes away. The people are very nice and friendly. The sermons are good, the music is alright. Going there seems okay, just not inspiring.
2. Another church on the island less than 2 minutes away (we can walk). The people are nice, though it seems like 90% are over the age of 60. I liked the music here as it was more old hymns (which makes sense with older people) maybe weird but I liked that. The sermons were good, but again nothing that seemed to challenge me or make me think.
3. A church off island, commuting being a slight pain. It's a big church, part of a mega church to be exact. The people seemed very friendly, lots of young married new families. The sermon was fantastic, the music more like going to a concert than worship.

She turned to me and said, "I love Daddy!"
I said, "That's nice."
Then she said, "Even when he doesn't bring me treats."
Isn't it good to know that your kids will love you even when you're not passing out goodies??

Here's the frame all ready for paint
Dh installed a new motor, clutch...welded a crack in the frame adjusted this and tweaked that (I just didn't take photos of this part)
All put back together!!
And now for the fun part, RIDING IT!!
I think they did pretty well for their first tries, it'll be a few more times before they really get the hang of it though. Dh didn't need any lessons, so for him it was fun from the get go!!
