A Glance into this Past Week

Posted in Family

We’ve had a busy week and weekend. Here’s a brief recap…. On Tuesday, we headed over to Art from the Heart (a great pottery place) to participate in the homeschool craft for the day. Nope, I can’t say what it was as it may spoil the surprise for someone 😉 We had a great time as always. This is one of Munchkin’s favorite places to go. On Thursday night, I helped set up and stuff over 160 bags of school supplies for the kids at the back-to-school party. These were just bags from the people that donated school supplies. I…

D had knee surgery on July 18th. All went well though he was a bit out of it for the rest of the day. The next week had it’s ups and downs. Today, he went in to have the stitches removed. He is now allowed to put weight on the knee. He’s hobbling around now — hmmm… we may need to get a cain of some sort for him. He starts up at EWS next week, so it should be interesting…..

Making A Splash

Posted in Family, and Outdoor Adventures

Get Ready for a Big Splash!!! Myrtle Beach Family Vacation June 2006 A fun, relaxing day at the pool in Myrtle Beach. Munchkin was having lots of fun with Daddy throwing her around in the pool. Grandpa and Grandma joined in on the fun while playing with noodles. Cousin R. tried to figure out her new floatation device and wasn’t so sure that it was going to work. Uncle T and Aunt H joined in on the fun while playing with Cousin M. Mommy took a few dips in the pool, but opted to take pictures most of the time.
