summer bummer

I think I can finally write about this.
Nora was bitten by a dog.
My sister's year old German Shepherd bit Nora's bottom when she was jumping in a pool.
Because of the momentum of jumping in the pool and the dog's bite meant to keep her out of the pool,
it was a pretty aggressive bite.  :(
It was a terrible day for everybody.  There is no blame or any fault, it was one of things that just happens in a blink and there's no stopping it.   We're all adapting and changing up our summer and Nora has been a super duper brave girl and I'm so proud of her!

 New favorite summer activity.
Playing in tents in the backyard.  One tent is a store where all kinds of glamorous items are sold.
Another is a beautiful mansion where occasionally little dogs are held captive.
There is lots of make believe and I love listening to the girls spin their stories.
It's amazing how they can entertain each other.
Our half bathroom off the kitchen is finished!
As Nora would say, "It's a Christmas miracle!"
 Gratuitous donut picture.
We love sprinkle donuts!

And a few layouts, I have a working photo printer again.
Life is still good!

Thanks for stopping by!

July 1st!

I can't believe it's July already!
In four days, Nora & Charlotte start their swimming lessons at the
community pool.  When I signed them up back in May, it seemed so far away!  I'm going to enjoy our lazy unscheduled days before we have to start running around again!  Swimming is the only thing I signed them up for this summer.  Neither girl was interested in softball.  We were fortunate to figure out last summer, soccer was not for us! ;)  As far as camps go, we decided to hold off for another year.  No rush!

So the girls have been loving their sleepovers at their Grandma's house.  So have I, let's be honest! :)

Pinkydog is still not a fan of bath time.  Especially the mad fighting that ensues over who gets to hold her in her towel.

I'm still trying to clear off my desk in the scraproom.  I keep finding papers and embellies I forgot I owned.  So I'm trying to use them up before I lose them again!   Happy July 1st!
