It's been a while since posting. For one, I don't have a lot of time to post lately and also this computer isn't "new format friendly". Wish I could figure out why!

First, for the newbies, WELCOME!! It's good to have you here! I'm Lynda, a SAHM to Joshua (5.8) and Jacob (just turned 3 on the 12th).

Josh graduated pre-k on the 30th of May. (His teacher had the "Thanks for helping us grow" 'bouquet' as the centerpiece on the table of diplomas. She said she always has a hard time finding something she likes that "fits in", and this was just perfect for that! That made me feel really good!) They were all soooooo cute! They sang songs about what they learned at pre-k and after recieving their diplomas, they sang about all the fun things they will do and learn at K. Also a song about how they were ready to go to Kindergarden. I cried when they first came walking out. I can't believe he's off to K in the fall! I'll probably cry then too! His 6th birthday is in Oct. so it won't be long til I'll be "moving on up" to the 6 & 7's board (Holy cow!!).

Jake turned 3 last Thursday (12th). We just had a small party at the house for him. We got him a new bike & helmet that he absolutely LOVES!!! My sister got him a kitchen set thingy...(stove, sink, microwave thing with dishes and such). My brother couldn't believe it!! He joked about getting him some earings and such. LOL!! Jake loves to pretend to cook so I told my sister that would be a great gift for him! I told my brother he just may be the next Emeril! :0) Of course my brother got him some "Hulk hands". They're pretty cool and the boys have a blast with them! He'll be starting pre-k in the fall....same day as Joshua will start K. I think that will be a very hard day for me!

Things with dh and myself have been tense (to say the least) lately. This is something that goes WAY back but we had a great talk the last two days and are going to try to work things out. (Maybe you could say a little prayer for us?)

The summer has been going pretty good so far. The boys are staying busy with movies at the theater (seen two), swimming at the Y, roller skating, boating/fishing, bowling, going to the zoo, friends, etc. A friend of mine sent me an application for "Trading Spaces" and dh is all for it so we'll fill it out, send it in and see what happens! That would be too cool! I'll let ya'll know if we hear anything.



Guess that's about all for now. I've got some pictures to share if ya'll are so inclined......

Your boys are adorable, and what a great job you did on the helping us grow bouquet it looks wonderful!

Adding you and DH to my prayers, I hope everything works out for you.

Let us know about Trading Spaces, I love that show that would be so cool! (my DH doesn't trust any of our neighbors to touch our house LOL)
