MMMM fresh berries!

We all went out this morning picking berries on Steve's Aunt Diana's farm. I can not wait to make jam and pies and syrup. We will go back and clean out what we left behind again next week.
Where did July go? The summer is whizzing past and I have so much to do before school starts...
Well, actually before my surgery lays me down for six straight weeks.
Emma is messing up my perfect plans because she keeps growing out of all her clothes and every time I think I have things under wraps, she up and grows again. That girl!
Oliver....he is FINALLY growing too and for the first time in two years I have had to buy pants for him. He will still be fine to wear the same shorts though for next year.
This is the most drab and boring post ever.
Our van is a real treat to have with its glorious air conditioning-especially during this heat wave.
Ug. When will it friggin snow?
My skin is now longer lily white and it shockingly has freckles! What is a girl to do? There are worse things I suppose.
I got some free Thinsations in the mail and another free box of cereal for all of you who care to hate me for getting free stuff.
Well, my legs are alseep....and I better go watch the kids swim for a bit before they get out of the pool.

What a waste of time...

All that effort and planning etc and they did not even do his eye surgery! He has a cold and has had surgeries before with a cold, but because this was a long one they decided not to do it. Arg. Oh well, I guess it is better to be safe. Poor little guy is tuckered out from being up so early though. He slept all afternoon on the couch while I tried to doze. Anyways that's all I have for today. Emma has grown by leeps and bounds in personality by being at camp this week. So strange how that happens.
We may head out to the Stampede this weekend as Strawberry Shortcake is there...yeehaw.

I only have five minutes today

What a day. I honestly didn't know what to do with Oliver today as today was Emma's first day at camp. Oliver howled for her all day long. Literally. Poor duck, he loves her so. Now we are at the library waiting for camp to be over and I bumped into an old friend Mrs. H.
We chatted for a while, which was refreshing-it always is nice to run into old chums isn't it. Anywho...Oliver has his eye surgery this Friday and I am off and running.
