Crazy week!

Since I've gotten a little flack for not posting again since I started, I'll share what kept us so busy for a while.

We've been picking raspberries and making jam and canning pickle relish. These were for Cheyenne and Natalie's 4-H projects for the fair.

Then last Monday, it was the annual Grandpa's camp-out for all the grandkids who've finished 1st grade. They had a blast!! Oh, and before they left, the girls did all the baking for their fair entries.

They got home Tuesday afternoon just in time to register for school and make it to the Cookies, Cakes, and Pies contest. Cheyenne won first place in the cakes, okay here's was the only entry, but it was still delicious. Natalie didn't place, but we all know her's won the popular vote. After the contest everyone can try all the entries and her plate was empty in seconds! ALL of the others took cookies home.

Wednesday was registering Billy for school, another trip to town and then the regular mutual and karate routine that night. I can't believe my little buddy is going to school this year, but that will be a post for a few more days.

Thursday was trying to catch up on somethings.

Friday morning we went to the fair to check out Cheyenne and Natalie's winnings. Unfortunately, we were slightly disappointed by no "special award" (better than blue) ribbons, and a red ribbon each. But 3 blue ribbons each isn't bad!!

Finally, Friday and Saturday were all day fun at our family reunion at my parents house. Another great weekend of fun, volleyball (well, the twisting my knee part wasn't so fun), lots of cousins, water fights, and the 20 ft. waterslide - which we even got the grandparents on (yes, Aunt Ann, we got Ray, Margie and Mom to go down, dad wouldn't have anything to do with it. Shaun got a great picture of the two lovely ladies going down, but I didn't think they'd appreciate me posting it here. lol)

It's been a busy week. Now we're just cramming in the last bit of fun and a little more weeding I can get out of the girls before school starts on Wednesday!
