Just checking in..

Hello, Friends!

Before I get started I want to say, "THANKS," to everyone that donated money for childhood cancer research!!!! We're a little more than halfway to our goal. As I said in the post below.. every amount great and small helps!

(If I've not emailed you personally, I will. I can't say how blessed we are that you've joined us in this fight! So, again, THANK YOU!)

NOW... I wanted to stop in and say, "hello." It's been a LONG time and I really didn't intend on letting so much time pass me by in-between posts. I'd mentioned before that I would share my "crazy garden" photos. Well, when the new computer arrived I vowed that I would NOT use up all the storage with pictures and such. SOOO.. I thought I'd just do it from the old one. The problem?? It's not been connecting to the internet. Well, somehow our boys have figured out how to fix it and it's working. NOW.. I just have to slow down long enough to load the pictures. (Maybe I'll do that TOMORROW?? Hehe.. I won't make any promises)

So, to fill you in just a tad on what we've been doing.. the boys are playing flag football with our home school group. We do that twice a week.. then of course there's church on Sunday and Wednesday. I'm sure your lives are just as crazy.. I just can't seem to figure out how to "DO" everything.

Oh, here's a funny little tidbit on our family. We've got a new pet. (Or should I say, PETS?) They're hermit crabs and have been quite the hermits! (HA!! Pardon the pun) O=-)

The VERY FIRST night we had them, the boys left the lid off, and a "stick" leaning all the way to the top of the cage thingy. (I have NO idea what to call their little home) ANYWAY... as you have probably already guessed one of them got out! ICK!!

No worries.. he was quickly found and returned to his little home. We actually started out with 3 but one of them has... UUMMMMMMMM.... we'll, let's just say he's "not with us any longer."

HHHMMMM... what else?? I know there was more to tell but it's getting late and my day starts EARLY! (I'm normally up with my hubby around 5 am)

I've REALLY MISSED you all! HOPEFULLY I'll make it back tomorrow and update with those pictures I've been promising. Until next time..

THANKS SO MUCH for checking in on us...

Missed you but I've been off for a week myself. Life is busy around here also and can't seem to get into the groove of the new school year and all that jazz. Hope you have a great weekend. :)

Sheryl said... IS crazy at your house! Thank goodness that crab did not make it far, that is just gross!
Glad you are enjoying life and all its busyness.

Hi Tonya,
I have missed you, friend! I keep thinking about calling you, but I find that I am a big chicken. BAWK! BAWK! Is that the sound a chicken makes, 'cause that is me!
I hope you are doing well!

If you happen to get any rain from IKE, please send it our way. Georgia is the new desert!
Hugs to you, sweetie!
