Cams took this pic of us-he did a pretty good job!

Paul,Cameron, and I all took a little fall drive up to Michigan today. We were going to pick apples but ended up eating lunch at the neatest little hamburger joint called Redamak's. We then went to New Buffalo and walked around the shops and then walked to the beach. It was so beautiful out!! Leah was too busy skateboarding to come with us and Dana was working of course!!


I'm not sure how many public schools (or private schools for that matter) have this out in the front of their school. My heart just felt so full when I saw this in front of TF South. I think the students painted it for the "See You At The Pole" Day, it's awesome!!

When Mom's Away!!!

So this is what happens when Paul and I are away. We went away Saturday to Dana's VB Tournament and left Leah and Cameron alone (with the bunny and the camera!! The worst part is that the bunny is actually on my kitchen table~my worst nightmare!! I love hearing the kids talking in the background!!

College Time!!

Well, Dana was accepted into two colleges she applied to, so the big decision is hanging over her head! One was a little (not tuition little!) college called Monmouth, which is 3 hours away and Olivet Nazarene (same price tag) but close by. The expenses are already a lot before we even send her there! The deposit is due and not cheap! I wish for the days again where all I had to do was buy diapers and jars of baby food!!

It's Paul's birthday today and I just want to say what a great husband and awesome dad he is! He takes a lot of interest in what our kids are doing and always has time for them!! Whether it's playing Gamecube with Cams, going to Dana's games (even without me) or showing Leah how to play something on the guitar, he's always involved. So here's to Paul on his birthday!!

I've had a few friends ask me what I do with my time now that the kids are back at school. Here is how my time is spent-I am Tulip's official photographer and activities director. Half of Tulip's day was trying to get in the living room, so now that the floors are done, she can come in.
I thought she would have fun with the pop box and guess what-I was right, it's her favorite thing to do. Some times I hook two up together and it's a little obstacle course for her!

This is Tulip's favorite spot to hang out, right behind the porcelain throne! Don't worry it's very clean back there!
