sewing

You can't really tell from the picture but I, with help, :P pleated the skirt and it took awhile.
With the leftover material from the legs I once again copied and made a bag.
Here is the finished product. Not exactly the best picture but it'll have to do.

having fun

Well I haven't done lots of posting for awhile so this will just be one long post.

Last weekend (13, 14, 15) we were invited to go camping on someones farm. On Friday we made part of the drive and than stopped for lunch with my Grandma and Grandpa, when we got back on the road, after a short rain shower, we were one passenger less, the dog. We got back in the van and finished the drive and when we got there I found that there were lots on girls my age around. I was invited to play volleyball and when the game was over I found our tents were set up. (I do usually help)

Over the weekend we played lots of games and I especially had fun playing soccer. Saturday evening there was a big storm and everybody had to go down to the basement. Once the storm was over we found the fly on our (girls) tent had come off so EVERYTHING in that tent was soaked. The other tents were better but still got a little wet. We decided to spend the night inside.

Sunday morning, after the power was back on, breakfast was started, but we didn't eat until ten I think. After singing songs and fellowshipping for a while lunch was started and so was another game of soccer. After eating lunch at four and watching an apple bobbing contest we started home.

On the way home we stopped at Ula's house and got some lilake bushes and got the dog. Than we finished the drive home only to find when we pulled into our driveway there was a tree in our way. We parked a ways out and ran in to get away from the mosquitoes. Thus ended that journey.

Fast-forward to Wednesday night. We had four kids over to be babysat and I can say they wiped us out. Oh, by this time Jason and Melissa are in Bemidji. After we got them to there house without any of us killing them we went to track.

At track I wasn't planning to run lots so I just wore my crocks instead of tennis shoes. There was family there I knew though so I decided to run more. On the 200m sprint I flew past the mom of that family and when the race was over I said out loud to myself "Next time I'm wearing tennis shoes" She overheard me and said "What! You're wearing crocks?!?!?!?!" It was so funny the way she said it.

Anyway my fingers are getting tired so TaTaForNow!

shh!!!!

I just HAD to post this picture of Melissa I took earlier. She is so cute. In a little nook wearing a dress up dress with two headbands in her hair is to cute to pass up.
Well, we've done a couple things since I last posted. We got our summer pool pass and have been to the pool several times, Wednesday we babysat all day, and Saturday and yesterday my Grandma and Grandpa came up for awhile. They brought some mosquitoes with them too and LEFT them. :(

giggling

Here is a really cute video of Laura. We went to Hays Lake state park for the open house today and though Laura didn't like the water when she was in it alone she LOVED it when I dipped her in the water. It got to the point where I picked her up, stepped in the water, and she would start giggling. So funny. video
