Summertime is here!

Finally, a nice hot week! (Ok, today is almost too hot, for crying out loud)! Anyways, here's the latest scoop:

1) little league wrapped up last week
2) Tyler turned 11!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
3) Overnighter at Camp Osto with the kids on Saturday
4) Father's day celebration with the Osto clan
5) Back to work, but some swimming at Brother Mark and Minnie's house
6) Watched Ry play some kick arse softball tonight - go girl!

Up next:
*fight big-business corporate America bastards from moving into my neck of the woods (more on that later)
*Help the Taylors move
*enjoy the "Turk" with Kath and Bob
*get geared up for the fourth at Bone's and Helen's place
*somewhere/somehow start thinking about painting my picket fence white again
*finish the lattice on the new shed
*dream of Clear Lake!

All the flowers are looking purty and the grass is green and lush. No sign of the japanese beetles yet, but they'll show up, looking all cute and shiny to disguise the little chomping demons they really are. Kiddies are sporting some nice tans and enjoying freedom from school. Cal and Chooch found out who their teachers will be and know that their bestest friend each will be in class with them too. =) All is well in the world!

Finishing the New Addition

Spent the weekend finishing up the shed. Lots of painting and putting up some shelves inside. Thanks to Torey for letting us borrow his sweet power tools even after our last-place little league team beat his first-place team's undefeated record! ;) Now we just have to finish the landscaping, lattice, and lighting and we will be done.

Osto and I also celebrated our 12th anniversary with a fabulous dinner downtown and the Mega 80's concert.

New Addition

Ok, so its not really an addition, but it was really necessary. Now we are going to paint and put in some shelves this weekend. The fun (work) never ends.

My baby turned 5

A little milestone...a five year old in the family. The hard part...he is my baby. He "graduated" from preschool and will be in the big K next fall. I want to freeze frame him, he is so cute right now. I know I will love each stage of his life, I always have, but it is a little bittersweet.
We had a nice big birthday party for five of the most important men in my life last weekend - Charlie, Chooch, Mark, Chris, and Mike. Happy Birthday to you all, I hope that this year is your best, happiest and most successful year ever!

An extra special shout out to my Big Bro, Chris, who is turning 40 today! Wow, is that even possible? Seems like yesterday you were playing Atari, racing down the street on your banana seat racing bike, driving the RX7, and growing your first mustache! HA! Now you are officially old! God has blessed you with a beautiful family and I know you are (busy) happy! So celebrate the past 40 years and have high expectations for the next 40! I can't wait to see where you go from here!
