In the Good Ole Summertime

School has been out two weeks and I can't believe what a little rest, relaxation, time to work on projects, time to read, and time to sleep in can make in my life!  I have even spent two days at the school organizing my room and making room for 100s of new books!  It's like Christmas for me!  I love books!!  My first week started out with a surprise visit from Whitney and Sue!  I was so excited to see them!  Sue brought me a new muu-muu with cats all over it.  It is pink with pockets and zips up the front!  These kind are hard to find, I tell you!  I immediately put it on and stayed in it the rest of the day while we visited and laughed together!  Evan spoiled us all by making crepes for breakfast, flammkuchen for lunch (German pizza), and Hawaiian burgers for dinner.  It was a perfect day!  They stayed the night and we had more time the next day to visit.  I think gifts of time are my very favorite kind of surprises!!!

Last weekend we drove over the mountain down Highway 89 to Kanab, UT.  It is so beautiful there with the vermillion cliffs surrounding the area!  Abby and her friends played in a softball tournament.  They won all of their games until the last one, taking 2nd place again Enterprise.  They played with heart and I wonder how they did it in the 106 degree heat!  Ugh!  I couldn't wait to get back to the Crazy Horse Campground and jump in the pool!  It was so refreshing!  So this week I have been working on organizing files, bins, my closet, and working on a budget spreadsheet to get us on track and out of debt!! 

Tomorrow we will be swimming at Veyo Pool for a get together with my side of the family.  I love going to Veyo, another beautiful setting around a refreshing pool of water.  A perfect way to spend a hot summer day!  Next week the girls will be at Girls Camp, so I plan on scrapbooking.  It has been such a long time since I've done anything with my scrapbooks.  Whitney will be coming out for a few days too.  Evan has been weeding and adding pretty flowers to our front yard.  My favorite flower is the daisy.  They are such a simple and happy little flower!  I love that he has always kept a variety of flowers in our yard and that they don't die within a few days.  We have daisies, petunias, lillies, coreopsis, and more that I have no idea of their names.  Anyway, here's a sample:
