Luke started school last week. I have a second grader! How in the world?!?! He's loving it so far. He hasn't complained once about getting up in the morning for school. He really likes his teacher and I am looking forward to a great year.
Since we've been back, I've started a home business. YIKES! It's been brewing for a few weeks now, but I "launched" it this past week. I'm making custom vinyl decals for cars, walls, sippy cups, stick figure families, you name it. I've always loved vinyl decals, and then the opportunity to start this business fell into my lap. I am supplying a boutique in town with Greek letters and alphabet letters to apply to water bottles, sippy cups, whatever. I got the order Monday, couldn't get my vinyl til Wednesday and the order was for over 5000 Greek letters! Holy Cow!!! I couldn't get enough vinyl to fill the order, but I did make 3400 letters. My Mom and Dad and brother and SIL all helped me pull it off in 2 days. We joked that our dining room was my sweat shop! HA!
I'm really going to enjoy doing this because it is something that I can do at naptime and after the kids are in bed and it won't take me away from my family. And I will be able to pay for our family vacations and some blow money. It's fun!
So now, after I get the pictures uploaded, I'll be caught up for the most part on our lives.

Then it was my Tahoe's turn. It was nasty! Luke and Hope had destroyed the back seat. You couldn't see the floorboard. It took almost 2 hours to clean it all up. The good thing is; MAJOR milestone...Emma is facing forward now!!!! We ran some errands to get ready for the camping trip and she LOVED looking out the front window. She's technically 2 weeks away from turning 1, but she's 20 pounds so I went ahead and turned her. She was a happy girl.
After we ran our errands, we grabbed some dinner at Wendy's. Luke and Sara sat a table beside us, but Hope sat by her Daddy. While he was getting our drinks, Hope said, "I sit by my Daddy, Momma. I like to sit by Daddy. He's the best Daddy in the whole world." The sweetest thing in the world!

The kids LOVED the playground and me spinning them as fast as I could on the "spinner"
Too stinkin' cute!
We fed geese every day. The kids were almost brave enough to let them eat from their hands.
We fished from the bank at our campsite and everyone caught a lot of fish!!!!
Since we've been back, I've been busy starting a home business. That is why I haven't been able to blog every night. I've been busy. More to come on that in the next few days. Now it's time to get ready for our last camping trip of summer. We're going to the Buffalo River next week before school starts the next week. The kids can't wait. Hope asks everyday when were going to the Buffalo Wivah. :)
We are so excited for this week of camping. It was a working camping trip for Lance last week. He went to work everyday. But this week, he's off and we can't wait to have all that time with Daddy!
