Where Does the Time Go????

It seems like just yesterday my kids were just babies! Now I am sending them all off to school for the WHOLE day! Here is Joel about 6 months old and of course eating with dad!

Now he is in kindergarten! He sure keeps us on our toes, we have to make sure all tools, tape, and glue are put up or we never know what we are going to find!

My little Cienna bug! She is about one year here.

Now entering 4th Grade! She made me straighten her curly hair for the first day of school. She is getting so grown up, she loves babies! I think she is going to be my Drama kid, she is always acting out something!

Miss Delaney, she was about 9 months here ans you can already see the devil in those eyes!

Entering 5th grade I can hardly believe it!! She loves any and ALL sports you can always find her with a ball! She is getting her braces on in a couple weeks! I am not ready for this stage in life yet but like it or not she is growing up!

Yep I am now alone all day, I thought that maybe I would get things done and enjoy me time, but Mike has had me busy so far. Maybe this winter I will get to just sit around and do nothing?? Anyway I hope all my kids enjoy their school year!!

Big Horn Co. Fair

Yes it is fair time again, All sorts of fun times! Here is Joel touching a spiky thing that I guy used in his magic show!

Delaney entered two of her quilts that she tied, in the open class and won first and second place Not bad!!

Mike entered his hay as usual and took first, he was beat this year for grand champion- whats up with that?? The Champ every year and he got beat out by a new guy?? He assured me though the only reason the other guy got it was because he turned in 3rd cutting hay and Mike turned in 2nd cutting. I think that he was more trying to convince himself!

He is still happy with first though look at that smile! so all in all I think it was another good year at the fair, maybe next year we will branch out and take an animal.


So Dave asked me to take out his stitches from the removal of his skin cancer. Of course I jumped at the chance! This was right after I had read Mike's cousin's blog, he is a foot surgeon and he had cut a hunk of his hide out of his knuckle and took it upon himself to "operate" on it at his kitchen table! I couldn't do that to myself but boy if I could help inflict pain on others, I guess that's my specialty, I love helping people!

Cienna was taking pictures, she failed to get my official Hanna Montana scissors that I used to cut the stitches, Dave got a little nervous when I pulled those out! Rest assured It was all good I didn't cut him once!

The finished product! I offered to Pluck his whiskers too but to my surprise he declined?? Although I did get a couple trying to get to the stitches. Good as new And I didn't even hurt him too bad.
