It feels like we've been very busy lately. We are all bowling and Corey & I have bowled on different days so we could bowl with our friends. They've had to change up their schedule due to some previous plans with their boys. Last Tues we bowled and I did better than I usually do. Woo!

My mom is doing pretty good. The kids and I see her on Tuesdays when we go to the library together. She qualified for unemployment and is trying to make the best of it right now and actually enjoy her extra time with the kids.

This past weekend we helped with a local homeschooling expo. Even the kids helped by drawing tickets for me to announce door prize winners. We sold some curriculum and books that we were done with as well as some we would never use. We made a little money so that was nice. Now to finish up our current stuff and order the next levels.

Corey and Morgan are taking guitar lessons from a friend. They've had 2 lessons so far and are enjoying it. Morgan figured out how to play one of the chords all on her own and she's very proud.

We've been doing a lot of activities through our library. They are offering some really fun programs this summer for the older kids. They are doing the summer reading, attending the school-age book time, and the pre-teen/teen program as well. Morgan is taking a 3 day digital photography workshop through the library and our local arts guild. She has one more day to go and she's loving it. She even showed me how to do some stuff with *my* camera! :-)

Our garden is growing....we have some little green tomatoes growing as well as flowers on the cantaloupe plants and the beans. I'm hoping for some peas too but I'm not seeing anything yet. We are enjoying the heck out of our CSA shares. We just bought the ingredients so I can make some bread & butter pickles. My first canning experiment.

We are getting closer to vacation time, July 16th. I think we are all looking forward to seeing family and (hopefully) friends. My dad and stepmom wrote us with an interesting proposal. They will be leaving after the family gathering and heading out to CA for some visiting and then heading back through CO and back home. They want to take their 2 youngest granddaughters....Morgan & her cousin, Josie. Both sets of parents have said okay. Morgan is ecstatic! She's ready to start packing. LOL! They will be gone from July 23rd to August 9th. I warned Morgan tonight that since she will be gone when we restart school that I will be requiring some work from her. Right now it is a detailed journal and pictures. :-)
