Flip Flops and Sunburns

Nothing says summer like flip flops and sunburns and I am currently sporting both. I love the relaxed atmosphere and dress required at summer school. I've been able to wear capris, sleeveless shirts and flip flops almost daily. However, even a 30 minute recess leaves me with a nice little sunburn!

Been awhile since I posted. I'll try to do a quick catch up...let's see...

My mom is having hip surgery on June 10th in Columbia.

Trenton is currently on crutches as of yesterday. He fell off the tractor/stepped down wrong and sprained his ankle terribly. They don't believe it's broken at this point, but we're waiting on the official radiology report to find out for sure. There was a possible fracture on the inside.

Went to Colby & Emma's games last night! I love watching them. I snapped a good pic of Trenton & Emma, I'll try to add at the bottom.

My great uncle on my mom's side just passed away a little bit ago after a very long battle with lung cancer. I expect we'll be traveling to the KC area soon.

Summer school is officially done for me tomorrow. Yea!! After that I only have about 4 days of my extended contract left to fulfil and then I will be on vacation until....AUGUST!!!

Jamie (my sister's) bridal shower is June 20th. Holly, Kate, and I are busy planning away. It will be at 2pm...so mark the date on your calendars family members!

My brother's wedding is June 27th...
Jamie's actually wedding is August 1st.
We have 4 weddings this summer...

I have more exciting news...Trenton & I are *almost* officially land owners! We put an offer down on 16 acres at the Hwy 63 and 202 junction on Wednesday and found out today, pending financing, we should be land owners as of July 15th!!! I'm so excited! It's where Trenton plans on building the site for his business with Pioneer. It's where we will hopefully be building our house in the next couple of years. We can move my horses there soon. It has a fully stocked pond, trees, a creek, good fences, etc. It's not very many acres I know, but it's perfect. Initially, I wasn't sold on putting the house there. But we did a walk around of the property the other night, and standing on top of the hill, I could just picture it and it actually brought me to tears. It's so amazing to see a small piece of a dream come true. I'm hoping that maybe we will be able to close a little sooner, but we'll see!



Andrea- I can't tell you how much we adore your kids! Thanks for being so willing to share them with us! We owe Colby a fishing/camping sleepover sometime...so maybe after we seal the deal on the land we can set it up!

Sounds like you're crazy busy like us. I miss you both! We need to figure out a time to meet. Maybe after we get into our house you could come up and stay with us one weekend! I just wanted to let you know that I'm still checking in on you!
