Still here!

We have just been a little busy finishing up the school year. One more week to go! I'm sure I'll be more talkative after that.  ; )

Quick updates:
*Goslings at the family farm! We saw three (very small) and it looked like more eggs would hatch. Maybe we will get to go out some time this week and check in on them. We didn't get pictures because we did not want to bother them anymore than we did. How about pictures of a Robin's nest that we have been watching outside the living room window (in the neighbor's tree)instead?

*Part of the painting project is done. Kitchen/dining room painted in record time (it helps having a teenager in the house even though I felt like I had to walk after him and clean up paint drips, lol!). One problem though! My gray is blue! I like it but I had planned to paint the living room and hallway the same color and I don't want this color in those areas. On to plan B for the rest of the painting.

*Spring turkey season is over. Two for Scott and zero for the boys. I found these pictures hilarious of Scott, turkey #2, and Lucy. I've included some captions on these photos because I know exactly what the dog is thinking. I'm good at knowing what is going on in the head of (naughty) children and puppies. Just ask the boys!

"I know you told me not to lick it, and I'm trying hard to obey, but any chance you have changed your mind?" Lucy says while licking her lips. Scott simply replies, "No, Lucy."

I may look happy, but I'm deathly afraid of that large creature. I'm hoping this is not the thing I'm expected to retrieve when I'm older . . . .  I wonder if I could sneak in a lick?

Are you sure I can't have one lick?

*Our Boy Scout Troop held a Court of Honor last week. Tyler received his first rank in Boy Scouts. Caleb received his Life Scout rank (Eagle is next!!). Tyler was embarrassed that he was suppose to kiss his mother to receive his rank . . . . awkward photos! Caleb didn't look too happy about it either.

* Tyler got a new hamster. He named him Humphrey. I was really worried about getting another hamster since I had one as a kid and it was not a good pet. The last one Tyler got was perfect (squeaked when we where holding it if it needed to go to the bathroom. Seriously, it was hand trained!). I think we may have gotten lucky again. Humphrey seems well mannered. He was named after the hamster in a series of books about the adventures of a classroom hamster. Tyler originally wanted to name him Hammy Junior but it just didn't feel rightWe talked him out of Fluffy, Golden, and Jeffrey (which is fine name for a man or a giraffe but not a hamster) and then Tyler remembered his favorite hamster character! Close one!

What have you been up to lately?


  1. Cassie
    Your photography has just kicked up a few notches!! First pic absolutely incredible and the next three are terrific too!! Good on you:)

    1. Thanks Erin! I still have not learned how to use the manual mode on my camera. I read a good portion of the manual but the manual mode instruction must be at the end. I want to find an online course or get some books from the library to help too. I have this on my calendar later this month while my boys go on a canoe trip. I'll need a peaceful house!
