Too Much for a Title

Things have been so crazy around our house lately. Just today, I finally felt like I could take a breath; although, I still have a pile of things to get done.

But I do have to report that my baby girl turned "6" on Saturday. That is "6" going on "16". She thinks she is so grown up. And because she turned "6", she thinks her teeth are going to just start falling out. I can't seem to make her understand that it will take awhile for that to happen. Bethany was almost "7" before she lost her first. There is no telling when she will even get a loose tooth. She was 13 months old before she got her first tooth.

We traveled to Opelika, AL to Pop & Nana's for Sarah's birthday celebration. Myron's family drove up from South Alabama to be there. Of course, my brother and his family still live in Opelika so they just drove over. Everyone was there except Kathy, Myron's sister. She was laying on a beach somewhere relaxing, I hope. Also, my very dear friend, Renee, and her two kids drove up from Montgomery to be there. It was a very nice birthday. Sarah was showered with lots of gifts. She got the Our Generation doll, horse and scooter ... which were the only three things she asked for.

And as always, Uncle Mark created another masterpiece.

While we were there, I tried to get a good shot of both the girls. Bethany was not being very cooperative. But Sarah gave me lots of smiles and was very willing to pose for a picture.

Now that the party is over, we are in project mode. Bethany is doing a tropical rainforest habitat. It is due Friday. Fortunately we got home yesterday and was able to start working on it. That is so Myron's thing. I knew Sunday would be the only day he could really devote any time to it so we tried to get home in time to get some of it done. At least he does have an image in mind and an idea of how to make that image come to life. Now we will be working on it a little each night. He will have to give me directions on what we can work on each day. I will be working on the report with her this weekend. It is due next week. Oh joy!!! I will try to remember to take pictures to share with everyone.
