A Month of Catch Up (LONG POST...LOTS OF PICS)

It's been a while. Unbelievably to me it has been over a month since my last post. I won't go into why, but I decided today would be the day that I would post on both of my blogs! AND try to update them at least weekly. So, here I am. A lot has happened since my last posts. Our sweet daughter (our BABY) graduated. We had a house full of company! And we survived. A good friend loaned me her camper and we set it up in front of the house for more sleeping space. Even though it didn't have A/C, we were able to run an extension cord out to it for lights and fans. I think it stayed cool enough for comfortable sleeping for my parents and my brother and his wife. I wish I had taken a picture.
But, here are a few of the pics from graduation.
Peggy, Zach and the twins with Katie. Brandon and Faith were not exactly cooperative.

Katie with Jake and Megan.

Katie and her Godmother, my Aunt Anna. We missed Dale.

The graduate with my mom and dad- her Grandma and Grandpa Johnson.

Kevin and I with our baby.

At the graduation, Faith wanted to walk and amazingly she even took my dad's hand.

Peggy and I at the graduation- friends since Katie was 2- the twins' age!

My brother, Rob and his wife Kylie were able to make the trip.

Kevin with his mom who flew in from Iowa. We were happy to see her.

Everyone was gone by Sunday. Even Katie who went back to Kansas with her brother and sister-in-law. I picked her up from the airport almost 2 weeks later. Surprisingly, she had changed her "look"- dyed her hair and cut it. I like it though.

As of July 1st, I am no longer on the Our Daily Bread Designs design team. I really miss it. But, I had to start focusing on finding a job. I have sent out a few resumes, but so far nothing. We are going up to Northern Virginia to visit Peg this weekend for her birthday. We are all going to Busch Gardens on the way home. Our summer vacation. LOL
When we get back I am REALLY going to get busy on finding a job.
Employment offices even. Yuck.
I have been stamping and crafting and walking and piddling around. And I am getting ready for a big sale this weekend where I will hopefully unload hundreds of unwanted stamp supplies!
That is about the extent of my summer thus far. I'll show you a couple of pics from yesterday and send you on your way. AND hopefully be back before the week is out to chat some more!
