This summer seems to be flying by and I feel like I am missing some hours in my day. I have been very busy working on a few little ideas that I have in my head and also trying to entertain my two little ones. We have had lots of fun in the sun and swimming this summer. We have had more adventures already this summer than we have probably had the last four summers combined. I have to admit, it has been fun to actually have my kids out and about. Tegan isn't always the easiest child to handle but this year it seems to actually be doable to have both kids by myself. I know some of you think that is crazy but with the age difference in my kids, Rylee doesn't always want to do the same things that her baby brother wants. But now they are both getting older and easier. As sad as it is to say that, I do like this new life chapter of self sufficiency. To be honest it is easier to have them out of the house and busy than to stay in the house with them fighting all day:)

I have really been praying and thinking about what my future holds career wise. I am somewhat of an odd one as I am a people person that would also be totally satisfied with being a recluse (is that the right that I mean a total homebody). Anyways, the more I pray the more I know that the right thing has happened in my life with school but that leaves me with figuring out what is next. I would like to continue to do something that doesn't take me away from my children ALL the time but yet have something that give me satisfaction. My wheels have been turning and I am feeling good about some of my ideas.

I sold my bigger embroidery machine on the cheap today. I love the idea of embroidery but I don't think I really like doing it a lot. I have a smaller limited embroidery machine that is built in to my everyday sewing machine. With that machine I can embroider the bibs and burp cloths and that is enough for me.

It is almost midnight around here so I guess I will drag my tired, sunburned self to bed with pure excitement that for the first day all week I have no plans tomorrow and plan to sleep as late as the little people that I live with will allow!
