I finally found a few spare moments to catch up with all of my blogging friends! These past two months have flown by in a whirlwind!! We started out the first Sunday of May in our new church building. It was a very exciting day for all of us! The mayor of our city even came for our ribbon cutting ceremony.We are so happy to have a place of our own after 5 years of renting.
My sister and her family were able to be here for our first service....here is Andrea and her cousin Alissa. Andrea wasn't supposed to be at church since her blood was very low, but we snuck her in the back door and let her stay in Troy's office.
Alex and Travis
May is the month of birthdays for us...Tyler turned 10 on May 17th and Travis turned 8 on May 14th.
This was not a fun experience for any of us involved in this first haircut! I felt like I was dancing and turning in circles just trying to get the job done!
My mom and my grandma....they were my lifesavers at youth camp!!
Nana and Alex......best buddies!
Holly McCarthy and I seem to be having a serious converstation.....HOW many rolls do we need?!!
Don't tell anyone but we have more fun than should be allowed cooking for all of these kids!
Troy and the boys
When we finally made it home from our travels, our project of the summer awaited us! We have all saved our money for several years and finally had enough to buy a 15x30 oval swimming pool. According the sellers it would be a very easy job for someone in construction.....we won't go into all of the details but to say the least easy isn't exactly the words I think Troy would use to describe the job!!
Alex and Nana ready to celebrate!
Our friends Justin and Kelly Brown came up from Indiana to spend the weekend with us. They have never been to Lambert, Home of the Thrown Roll so we all went there for lunch. As usual we went in starved and came out never wanting to eat again!

Why do boys (men) love to play with fire? I guess that is one of those unanswered questions!! :)
What a great country we live in! In spite of all the things that seem to be going backwards, I am still prould to be an American!!
I am finally caught up and now I can rest in peace at night! :) Hope all of you are having a wonderful summer!!!
