Am I crazy?


In the effort to get a handle on our debt, I have taken a part-time job delivering newspapers. One of my facebook friends said "seriously?" and my reply was "yes, seriously--am I a 14 year old boy?"


I have never had a paper route, but it actually pays good money. The only problem is that it cuts into my sleep time (and it is 7 days a week). Once I get used to my route, it won't take that long. Plus, I have a great area (Mankser Farms).


Pray that I can sleep when I need to sleep and be awake when I need to be. Thanks everyone!

July 4th weekend

We had a wonderful July 4th weekend. We left Friday and joined some friends at their cabin in Granville, TN. I had never even heard of Granville before, but it is a cool little town. I told them it was like we stepped back in time. I tried to find some pictures online, but I couldn't find any. You'll just have to take my word for it.


Saturday night we went to Veterans Park to see the fireworks, and our friend took a picture of the four of us:

Shortly after this was taken, the fireworks started, and then the rain started. We sat in the rain and watched for a little while, but when it really started coming down, we left. The boys and I came back home that night.

Sunday we went to our cousins' house for a cookout, and Big Brother got his first sparkler. It is kind of dark, but if you look closely, you can see his sweet little face lit up.



Our cousins and their neighbors were setting off fireworks as well. Little Brother decided he didn't like the noise, so he and I came on home. Daddy says Big Brother had a really good time!

Giveaway from Common Sense with Money


Hey Everyone!

Common sense with money is giving away a Crocs gift certificate: http://www.commonsensewithmoney.com/2009/06/fun-giveaway-crocs-gift-certificate/.

I bought a cute pair of crocs for myself earlier this year (not the clog-type you think of when you think crocs), but when I went to the website and checked out their new styles, I was blown away! I had no idea Crocs was making such great shoes now! Leave me a comment on what style you like best; I like the Pixie!

Two beautiful days

We have had two beautiful days here in Hendersonville, and the boys have had some fun playing outside. Here they are yesterday riding their John Deere Gator in the backyard:

Then today we found a baby bird in our back yard. It's pretty big for a baby, but it can't fly yet. Both boys were fascinated, of course, but since Little Brother just wanted to poke it, we had to keep him away from it. Here are some pictures of Big Brother and the bird:


And here are some pictures of the boys just being cute:

(My babies!)
(I might have to frame this one!)

(You can see his mouth forming the word "cheese.")

(He's getting brave...)
I hope all of you reading this have had nice weather to enjoy as well!
