March, April, May, June, July....

Swimming, spending time with friends and family, swimming, camping, swimming, camping, spending time with friends and family. That's pretty much what we have been doing since March. LOL 
Actually there have been lot's of changes going on around here! 
Me? For starters I just haven't been feeling great for a quite awhile. I finally caved and made several Dr's appointments and have been getting some tests done. I don't think it's anything serious but you know that feeling when something isn't quite right?  Well that's how I feel.
Other changes? In May I quit a long term job (7 years)...It just wasn't right for me anymore. It was great while it lasted however as far as pay and advancement? It was a dead end job. Sooooo I will be going back to school in the fall! 
Hubby? Well we had a scare with his job. His employer and the union couldn't connect. He was out of work for a month and for lack of a nicer word...It really sucked! It did however make me more thankful for what we DO have. We went camping this year because it was all we could afford. We found out we really enjoy it and (for us) vacation doesn't have to be fancy restaurants and high end hotels.
My Mom...showing up with stuff like groceries and laundry detergent while Jim was out of work....standing by us both financially and mentally. I can't even put into word how much I love and appreciate her.
Kelsey? Well she is growing faster than I can stand. We've entered the middle school years and well I can't stand that either! LOL She's still swimming and my baby even made the Varsity Swim Team! She's also made some great new friends. On an extremely sad note. Kelsey's Head Coach, Ron Olsen passed away. We still can't believe he is gone. It's a tremendous loss to the team and the entire swim community.
Scrapbooking? I've actually been to a couple of crops in the past few months and done some scrapping at home. I'm not sure why but I have no craft pictures today!! For now here are some pics of the last few months.
