My husband has decided that he has not been getting enough attention so on top of his emergency room trip the other night, he sliced his wrist and had to get stitches Monday at work. I would think there are other ways to get doing it this way, he has become a pin cushion. Poor guy!

This and That

Things have been going well.

It has been so hot that I have just been sitting around, not doing a lot other than drinking.

We try to hit the pool several times each week.

The air conditioners have been a blessing.

Mike decided he wanted some special attention so we spent several hours in the emergency room with kidney stones. (I guess that is one way to get some time alone in the car with your wife.) :)

This week is a calm week, so far, on our calendar. I'm sure it will fill quickly though; it usually does. I had thrown around the thought of going to visit the grandparents during this week (a couple weeks ago,) but I think I will stay at home in front of my air conditioners.

Jason's 13th Birthday

Jason celebrated his 13th birthday last week.

Here he is in the pool during his WOW swimming, and then we shared doughnuts with all the kids that were there that day. I had made blueberry muffins to bring, but we left them at home on the table.

He invited a couple friends over for a few hours.

We had pizzas, fruit, and Dairy Queen cake.

He spent a lot of time playing various "electronic" games that day and even practiced his piano lesson songs.

He got a couple gifts plus a card in the mail earlier in the week.

We still have a raincheck out on his cornbread and hamburger gravy for supper. It has been too hot to eat a meal like that.

Sacked out...

Jason took time and decorated a flag cookie for me. :)

Iron Man

I went "all-out" this year and bought wrist bands for Jason, Emily, Melissa, and Laura to go on the jumping rides at the 4th of July celebration. They had a blast except at the end when they lost two hours because of the coming rain.

David and Laura and I were down there as they were inflating the rides. I was sitting by the one called Iron Man. As it inflated I told David, "Look, it's going up up up." He looked up and said, "Up." Then he kept looking at it saying "up" as his face got more and more horrified. He started backing up saying, "Up up bigger Mommy bigger." I was having hysterics at his expense!!!!! I so wish I would have had a video camera on me to catch the expression on his face as he backed away getting more and more scared saying "bigger Mommy bigger."

Poor little guy...I hope he doesn't have nightmares of huge men coming to get him! :)

Wednesday while Aaron was at his guitar lesson, Jason and I walked down the the river. I lay down on the bridge and just let the gentle breeze blow over me. It wasn't too hot in the day yet...

Sleeping Boy

David put himself to sleep Monday evening.
