My handsome, funny, sweet, caring and lovable boy is six years old today! Here are some of my favorite baby pictures of him and some recent ones too. Love my Zaney boy!!

We all went camping overnight. It was the first camping trip my kids have ever been on and it was so fun! They loved sleeping in the tent, exploring the riverbank, riding their bikes through the camp grounds and eating at the picnic table. It was so fun to introduce them to camping!! I'm thankful for these opportunities!

Catch up. Again. And again.

Five days since my last post?! I would say that's crazy but I believe it. Busy busy busy lately. Still. We literally won't get a break from being busy until the end of August. Right before school and work start up again. I shouldn't complain though. I'm very thankful that I have a job that gives me the time off with my kids. :) And we have had a very fun summer so far. Lots of fun activities and friends and places to go.
This coming week, my son will turn 6. My sweet Zaney boy will be 6 in a week!! I can't believe it. I'm so thankful to have him in my life and to get to experience life with Zane. I'm so lucky!
I'm also super thankful for getting to introduce my kids to first experiences and new things. We have been attending the Friday activities at our library and we have loved them all. Puppet shows, reptiles, music and book sales! I love hearing their favorite parts of the outing and seeing their faces light up as they talk about it during the following days.
Something else I have been especially thankful for is my renewed love for sewing. I reopened my etsy shop and have been making all sortable of cute items to sell. And sell they have! I love my friends and family for supporting me and encouraging me to do what I love again!
During these busy days as weeks, I am thankful for my super comfy bed. I crash hard every night, just like my kids. These fun filled summer days are wearing us out! It's wonderful!
On that note, I think I'm gonna crash.

Apparently summer vacation messes with my blogging.
We are staying busy, having fun and looking forward to more fun activities in the coming weeks.
A few things I'm thankful for- central air, walks with my son, library visits and activities, beautiful sunsets, motivation, snuggles with my daughter first thing every morning, sewing, and my car. A random assortment.
Hope you are all enjoying your summer also!

It's been at least 100 degrees or hotter the past few days...I'm super thankful for air conditioning! My poor kids haven't been able to play outside much due to the hot weather. We are all early risers in our house so it works out nicely for them to play outside when they first get up, before the heat sets in.
We all had our share of the heat when we attended Community Days and watched the parade, walked trough the courthouse square and visited with friends. I'm, once again, thankful for community. Such a fun day even though it was hot and tiring. Who doesn't love a good parade?!
I'm also thankful for our local library for providing such a good selection of DVDs to borrow. Watching movies is the best way to spend a day cooped up in the AC. :)

My son

Today I'm thankful for my son and the time I get to spend with him. I love our one on one time and so does he. It's been nice having Claire in school through the summer because I get two mornings a week with my little man. I just can't believe he will be 6 in a few weeks. It doesn't seem possible that he is so big now. I'm not going to here is a picture of us from yesterday to keep me from crying. :)

4th of July

I am a week behind in this blog...but I'm ok with it. Today was such a good day. I'm thankful for this country and the freedom we have. I'm thankful for my kids and my family and the fun we shared today. I hope you all had a wonderful day surrounded by people you love!
