Its finally feeling like summer!

It was time of year again that the Kelly clan invades Emporia at our gracious hosts, Rick and Barb's for our annual family swim party this last Saturday! It was classic summer day in Kansas! HOT! A perfect day to lay around the pool, sip on cool beverages and enjoy good company and good food! While it was great to see the family it just wasn't long enough to get caught up with everyone. Rumor has it our beautiful hostess, Barb is turning 50 this week! She says 50 is the new 40 and that would make me 20 so I'm okay with that so let the rumors fly! Happy Birthday Aunt Barb!

I'm alive

I know, I suck at blogging. I just haven't been in a blogging mood. But alas, I'm here.

I was reading the blog of one of my dear friends from the old Heights days and she posted something fun. She is a fellow rock star mom and took the title from me for having the most kids in our graduating class! The title was willingly and lovingly handed over to her! Hi Amy= )

Here is the fun little tag game she played! I'm not going to tag anyone but it would be fun to see some peoples answers!

10 years ago in 1998.....
I was a stay at home mom with Cody(18 months) and Payton (4 months). Bobby had just started training for the Sheriffs Dept. We had just celebrated our 1 yr wedding anniversary. That truly seems so much longer than 10 yrs ago!

5 years ago in 2003....
I was in the midst of getting my prerequisites together to be able to start nursing school in the winter semester and being a stay at home mom. We were living in Park City. Bobby was still with the Sheriffs dept. Cody was 7, Payton was 6 and Hayley was about to turn 3.

5 months ago in February 2008…
Working full time as a nurse. Bobby just made the decision to finally leave the Sheriffs dept. and go back to school. We just started attending Gracepoint. Cody was 11, Payton just turning 10, Hayley 7 and Sydney 3!

5 things on my to-do list tomorrow…
Go to computer training for work(yuck), get ingredients for dessert to take to Life group, some laundry, Hayleys softball game, go to Life Group and Larry and Gail's house.

5 bad habits of mine...
drinking too much pop, gossiping(I'm really working hard to quit this one!), buying something I have no use for even though its so super cheap(those darn red stickers at Target get me every time!) lack of patience with others, not exercising!

5 places I've lived...
El Dorado
Park City
North Wichita
South Wichita (it really is another world!)

5 things people don't know about me...
I hate the feel of chalkboards, public pools creep me out(I'm quite aware that I have freakish phobias, these two are actually mild) I would love to live on a farm, I've never been on a airplane but that will change since I'm going on a medical mission trip to the Dominican Republic next year!

That was fun! Goodnight!
