Today, while turning in GRIFFIN'S application to be a cub scout, I saw a friend. She asked how much scouting my children had done.
In another conversation with Griffin, I told him that we would need to go home and google what the name of the end part of the shoelace was. Griffin quickly told me it was an Aglet! And it is spelled A-G-L-E-T.

Griffin's school has changed the company that is doing their school portraits. This new company wishes to charge way more than the last company. VERY Frustrating!!
To think that I got an 11 x 14 from Costco for $1.50 and this company wants to charge $15.00 for an 8 x 10. That bugs me!
I can't put the real picture up that goes with this "bug", because it would be inappropriate! I bugs me to see girls going to school with shorts so short that they BARELY cover their bums!! There IS a school dress code, but no one really cares but me. I don't think kids have to go to school dressed like pioneers, but come on, cover the tops of your thighs!!
Oh, I thought I was done, but WHAT are the MOTHER'S thinking about buying their little 11 year old daughters clothes like that anyway!! Think, people, think!
Ok, these shoes are a little ugly, but because of that, I kind of like them. I looked into how much they are, thinking maybe around $10 - $15. They are $45!! I have seen kids wearing these shoes and I know their families do not have much money. I don't get it. I also don't get spending money on cell phone plans that you don't need, but like, when you are scraping by to pay the electric bill. It reminds me of Pres. Obama's plan to raise taxes to solve the governments spending problems. Maybe, not spending so much would help too.
Ok, off my soap box now.
Must go do something productive.

I was in charge of Sharing time in Primary. We were talking about the blessings that going on a mission brings. I decided to talk about CHASE! These are some of the pictures I showed! I printed them up big, a full 8 x 10! The primary kids loved them:
I showed a good picture of chase as a missionary, not this one, I couldn't find the one I used today, I put them one up for entertainment sake only:
P.S. Now I have those songs swirling around in my head!!

Griffin starting 3rd Grade
Quinn starting 11th grade
My Sunflowers! Aren't they SO pretty? I love them. I must because they bring SO many bees!
It is amazing I have the nerve to go out there and water them!

I accidentally found a new blog today:
I put the link over on the side.
It is GREAT!
Has lots of free printables.
It is filled with all the kinds of things I want to know how to make, but don't.
I am supposed to be sewing my new slipcover, but this was so much easier.
I'll go work on my slipcover now.
P.S. Can anyone tell me why, sometimes blogger chooses to make the spacing be double when I only want it to be single? It seems to happen after I put a picture on. It really bugs me.
