Never say slow down around here!!!!!

Can you see the fishing pole? Little Bubba is watching his cork bob...what a life!!!!!

Maybe I need to follow him around a bit for lessons on relaxing.

It seems no matter how hard I try to accomplish things here at home I get further and further behind!!! Am I doing this to myself? Am I crazy?
Is there really that much to do???
YES- to ALL of the above!!!

Though life is good and we are blessed I do need to find a way to slow things down a bit...I thinking about exactly how to do that.I'll make some headway as soon as VBS is over and we get back from 2weeks on the road and Ryland is born and school gets started and...and...and...- see what I mean???

We had a really nice weekend-on Sunday we had our church meeting under the trees here and a baptism in our pond and of course an old fashioned picnic and an unexpected thunderstorm!!!AHHHH-Louisiana!!!!

We also had a moment of excitement when a good friend's toddler escaped her momma's grasp and tumbled into the pond. My 15 yr old appeared from nowhere and was in the pond rescuing the baby before we knew what had happened. Thank God for the speed and sharp ears of youth!!!!

O.K and the silliness of youth too!

On Monday the kids came out and we had traditional Memorial Day bar b que brisket with all the fixins and then settled out around the pond to fish- or rather to watch Andrew fish! He caught another 5 lb catfish. I even made a yummy red white and ..well- there really wasn't any blue but it was yummy!!!!

We got to cuddle Wendy too!!!

It sounds like a great time except for the accident. How wonderful that your son was able to saver her.

Wendy is so cute. What a sweet smile.
