Sorry I haven't posted yet. I just couldn't figure out what to write about. So this is going to be just randomness and what has been going on in my life.

A couple of weeks ago, I decided to try my hand at making my very first cake. I made a Hawaiian Wedding Cake.

I have a bunch of projects to work on.

I have a Thomas Kincaid color-by-number page Mom gave me.

I have a BUNCH of books I need to catch up on, PLUS, books Mom gave me.

I have a puzzle, I work on every now and then. I don't really have a official place to put it together on. So I put it together on the kitchen table. But before a meal, or if I know that I will be leaving it on the table for a while, then I put it up, Because I don't want my cats to play, tear, or WORSE, eat the puzzle pieces.

And last but not least, I have a stuffed dog sewing kit I haven't worked on in a while.

Just a couple weeks ago I started to get blooms on my butterfly bush.

My flowers are getting bigger. Especially my impatiens. Now next year I KNOW to plant them a little further apart. They are starting to grow into each other.

Next post coming up is pictures my Mom took of our chicken flock. Some of them are cute and funny. I will try to get that one up as soon as I can.

And the next post, probably before the chicken one, will be of my birthday!

Garden Update

We (Mom, Dad, and I) went outside to check our gardens. It turns out that we got 2 squash from our squash plants!

We should get some more tomorrow. Our corn is growing well. And our okra is just taking it's time. But it is getting there.

Christian Artists

Ever since I have been listening to Christian music, I have found really good groups and singers. There is so many that I like!

Let's see, there is:

Casting Crowns-My favorite song by this group is "Who Am I?"

Bethany Dillon-I have her CD.

Amy Grant-My favorite song by her is "El Shaddiah". El Shaddiah is another name for God.

I like Chris Tomlin's version of "Amazing Grace".

PureNRG is a small group of 3 kids that sing Christian songs that are NRGized. I like "Here We Go Again".

My Weekend In Review

Saturday we went to our first homeschool group field day. It was fun. They had games for the kids to play. Although my friend and I didn't play the games. I was shy, I am not sure what my friend's excuse was.

Here is Adam doing a three legged race with another girl he quickly became friends with.

After we ate our supper, the kids wanted to play at the park for a little bit.

Here is Adam enjoying the slide.

While the kids were playing my friend and I sat in the shade and talked. Ok, we didn't talk much, we ran out of topics to talk about.
