A few end of the summer pictures

I have a random handful of pictures on my phone right now that I wanted to share. I know the kids & I still have a few more days until our summer is officially over, but here's what I have for now. They are in no particular order here...just a random bunch of pictures. Enjoy!

Savannah really has no idea how cute she is! We went to the store to buy just a couple of "school clothes" items earlier this week and found this dress on a rack so I handed it to Savannah & told her to try it on just for fun. It fit her PERFECTLY!

A local church recorded a live worship CD a year or so ago. I finally got my hands on a copy of it earlier this summer. But by the time I got it, they were already working on their 2nd CD. My sweet friend Kate, the mom of one of my students this summer, got the new CD for me as an end of the summer gift. I love it!! Then again, I always love new worship music! Thanks Kate!!!

I wish I could say this is a rare occurrence at my house. But it's not. I took this one day last weekend to show my girlfriends. See the empty TP tube on the holder? And the whole big bag of toilet paper RIGHT THERE under it? It's like whoever used the last piece forgot where we kept the refills.
But the crazy this is that I found it the SAME WAY about 2 days later. Sigh. I think it's time to get eye exams for all of my BLIND family.

Don't worry....they're not really fighting. They were just laughing & wrestling around in the kitchen floor. When I got out the camera, they started giggling & pretending like they were actually pulling hair & fighting. They were laughing REALLY LOUDLY the whole time, though.

So LOUDLY, in fact, that their brother came & grabbed Savannah by the legs and started dragging her out of the kitchen so he could work on his summer science project for school without having to hear them. She grabbed onto Sarah's leg & it was hilarious watching Sam drag both of the girls out of the kitchen. ha ha!!

Monday was mine & Larry's 18th anniversary. I took a picture before he got home & texted him to show him my date night outfit. The necklace I put on shortly after this broke while we were eating dinner. least it was cheap jewelry!

Since I took the girls to look for a few school clothes items one day while Larry had Sam busy doing something else, I had to take him & get a couple pairs of jeans for school at a later time. We stopped at Whataburger for some fries & a coke while we were out. For some reason, he always thinks the ketchups on the table are meant to be used to build things...towers, buildings, etc. Ha ha!

He looked so cute in this hat, but I just couldn't justify buying it. We have no where for him to wear it.

Showing off his new haircut again. Isn't he handsome?

Laying on the couch watching TV last night, Savannah came over to snuggle & took our picture with my phone. I was trying to get her to smile in this pic.

And last but not least, I love taking part in an online group called Viewpoint Forum. It's a website where you join & fill out surveys for points. It takes a few months, but once you hit 375 points, you can choose to cash in your points for money or some other rewards. I can't remember what the other rewards are, though, because I always choose the money!!

Once in a while, they will send me a product to test for them & then I get online & do a survey about the item. One time I did a test for Bounty paper towels. This (see pic below) is the 2nd or 3rd time I've been asked to test a laundry detergent. When you test a product, it's worth more points than the once a week (give or take) surveys about random things.

I can confirm that the site is completely legitimate. I've been working with them for several years now! Check it out at They don't do a referral program right now, so I'm not going to get anything if you choose to sign up. I just want to share about a cool program!!
