I'm still here!

I'm still here, I haven't completely abandoned blogging.
I've just been very busy this past week.
First it was Mothers day.
Then there was Bugs Kindergarten orientation.
The school is very small and the teacher was very nice. I haven't been in a grade school in many years but one thing immediately jumped out at me. I turned to husband and asked " Do all grade schools smell the same?" He quickly replied "Yes, I think they do"
Maybe it's that I also went to a small rural grade school, but it smelled just like this one.
This isn't the actual school that Bug will go from 1st to 6th grade at. The district is so small that they combine kindergarten between two of the smaller remote schools.
Bug was shy at first but by the time we were done he had a new friend and a promise for play dates over the Summer.
The next night my dad came up to visit. We had a nice BBQ and Bug was pleading with Papa to stay the night.
Then we had Bugs Preschool graduation the next night. It was set to start at 7pm, we arrived at 6:40pm to find the parking lot over flowing. When we got into the gymnasium it was packed and we ended up in the back... again! argh. It also happened to be close to ninety degrees that day and there was no air conditioning or air flow in the gym. Husband had to go stand at the door so he wouldn't over heat! They did a number of songs and said their ABC's. Bug did so great, he was really hamming it up. I took pictures but I had to zoom way in (since I was standing in the very back!) I have tried and tried to edit the pictures but the kids eyes look like demon children. They aren't red, it's more like they are glowing and I can't get them to look right. Any suggestions?
Saturday my little sister came to visit. She lost her job Friday and needed to get away and just chill out for the day. We sat in the yard chatting, drinking ice tea and watching Bug slip and slide. We don't spend much time together so it was nice hanging out with her for a few hours.
The weather has been awesome this past week. I've been trying to catch up on my gardening. Yesterday was spent planting, weeding and watering.
So now you're all caught up on my life... I'm not sure how good I'll be at blogging through the Summer. I'm going to try and do at least a few posts a week.

Understandable Autumn, it sounds as if you have your plate full and that's a good thing!! Take advantage of nature being so kind to you and go out and do what you can because you just never know what might happen.
Congrats on Bug doing so well on his ABC's... yay!!!! What a bright boy! You must be soooo proud!! I'm sorry those pictures didn't work out... darn. Perhaps Corey might know what to do about the "eyes", she seems to be the guru of all photography! =)
Take care, my friend and not to worry about posting, I know you are out there!!! Be safe.

Definitely ask Corey about how to fix the eyes. She would know how to fix it . . . assuming they aren't REALLY demon children!

I'VE MISSED YOU! so much. I do hope you stick with blogging. the blogging world just isn't the same without you. :)

I cracked right up about mama zen's comment. If they are really demon children......eeekkkkk...

email me one of the pics, and I'll see if they are workable. You never know until you try. :)

hugs! So glad your dad came....and your sister. I'm sorryto hear about her job. ugh.....
