My work

I consider what I do a real job. To me, it is one of the most important. I get to help my children learn and grow during the day. I hope to have a positive influence on them before this job goes to another in a few short years. I have heard the comments about money from others that it doesn't truly affect one way or another. Do they think money is really more important than my children? We sacrifice a lot right now. I don't go shopping. We eat lots of home-cooked meals. I am okay with that. These are the years I used to dream of sharing with them when I was working. There will be plenty of time for me to have a "real" job soon enough.  The best jab was a comment directly to my kids. "I guess you will grow up and support your Mama."   I love my children and have no plans for this to happen. Needless to say, over time you loose patience with all this.

Hanging Out

The events and the wonderful places we go are great, but sometimes the mundane is wonderful.  Just sharing a little of our times hanging out at the house.

And Greg - I don't know why you don't like my "mumu"?  All I can say is it is super comfy. Ha!

Independence Day

Pool party at the Quarles this 4th of July! That is Ella surrounded by all the floatation devices.

Check out Skyler's cute float ring.

Shepherd kept a watch on all the fun poolside.

The girls zoom across the pool on the surfboard.

Upside down goggles are so stylin'

We had a surprise visit from Shirley
and Kelly

Nothing says 4th of July like a big plate of beans

Ginny's chocolate delight was a patriotic treat

The end to another fun 4th!
