Well, mom told me if i want a blog, just post something on THIS blog.
Well anyway, being an only child is lonely. With Levi gone, I had to revert to pretending that Malachi was my brother, so i'm always chatting to him. Oh well, anyway, some might not know that i went to girls camp. Man, i had so much fun! i pretty much hung out with the girls, made friends, and received many a Popsicle from our angry cooks. The cooks threatened at every meal that they would dump the leftovers on our heads if we didn't get second helpings. Good times, Good times.
i swear my hair only got curlier at camp. when it rained, my hair had ringlets aplenty. can you believe i got COMPLIMENTED on it????? Anyway, i pretty much hang around the house singing, cleaning, getting sick, and getting in trouble for reading. Oh, and of course making fire with an angry face and napoleon dynamite shirt.
But anyway, I'm loosing weight, and i feel very accomplished.
I'm writing a book that is sure to be published! It's pure genius and full of pictures and knights.
Well, im off to the library, so i love you guys very much and hope that i can see you soon.

Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass on a summer day listening to the murmur of water, or watching the clouds float across the sky, is hardly a waste of time. ~John Lubbock
I took this from another blogger. I liked it so much. At least I will give them credit for it since it wasn't my work. It came from http://buttonwillowchronicles.typepad.com/

We had quite the long vacation in June if you could call it a vacation. Brent worked and worked and got Michelle a new workshop in her new basement and even got a new deck partially done on Dad's house. The old one was dangerous. I love this picture of Dad and Percy. I don't have very many, and I am realizing that I don't have pictures of older people in the family (including us) and on the other hand, lots of pics of the grandchildren. Not that I don't want those pictures, as they are so precious. I don't even have a picture of me to put on my facebook, so one of these days, I will try to get one of me.
We are home now, having spent most of the month of June in Utah. Missouri is a green jungle as always. We are just trying to survive the heat, humidity and bugs. September is my favorite month. I'm just waiting.
