the best things in life aren't things...

Here was my project today. I have been looking for an oversized picture for our entryway for awhile now and found this. What d'ya think?

These are pictures of Jensen and two of her buddies at HIGH SCHOOL ORIENTATION! In exactly 7 days I will have a high schooler! I can't believe how fast time has flown....

the simple pleasures of summer 2009

This has not been a summer of extravagant vacations. Its been a summer of simple pleasures, probably my favorite thus far. Which is kind of , well, ironic. How many dads get a chance to spend an entire summer home with all the kids??? We have made some great lemonade out of the lemons life handed us over the last five months. I had everyone brainstorm their favorite memories and compiled a list because I wanted to be able to remember it.

Sonic "happy hours" - (slushes are 1/2 price) The Frank Buck Zoo the Rough Riders baseball game Purple Vanilla milkshakes at the "Purple Cow"
$1 flip flops at Old Navy watching episodes of CAKE BOSS and REBA building bears for $30 fishing in the pond
playing "train", "uno", and "Scrabble" on Sundays singing "Boom, Boom, Pow" at the top of our lungs in the car ( a cleaned up version, of course!)
seeing UP! (the movie) Family Home Evening with the J. Sallaways and T. Sallaways Pool Ball with the Teacher…

FINALLY, some good news...:O)

Yay! We finally came to a resolution on Friday! Brent is free to go to work and we are happy with the end result. He came home about 1pm on Friday and immediately was on the phone the rest of the day with prospective employers and "head hunters". Things are looking better already.
