My baby girl Lauren had her 22nd birthday this week, I don't know how I became the mother of a 22 & 26 year old, because I don't feel any older than that most days! We celebrated with pizza and strawberry cake and of course Jace had to help Aunt Lauren blow out her candles on her cake. Happy birthday again Lauren, I love you more than there are stars in the sky and fish in the ocean....Mom

Little Man's First Day of Pre-School

My grandson's first day of pre-school, he said he had a good day.


Much needed rain thursday afternoon, standing in the door of my office building, we have had burn bans and very hot and dry conditions so I was very happy to see some rain. Over the treeline is the Arkansas Heart Hospital and on many days we watch them landing their helicopter bringing in a seriously ill patient.

Hot Dam!

It's been so hot here and with all the heat warnings, we have not spent much time outside
I am so ready for fall and cooler days. This is a pic taken from the Big Dam Bridge in Little Rock, showing the Arkansas river flowing from the dam....Barb

My mom in the late 60's, I never thought I looked much like her until I saw this pic. How did they ever get their hair to stay like this?....Barb

Just a little bit longer!

Sorry I haven't posted, we have had a trial run to the hospital already with this little guy! He's not due until the middle of September so he need's to stay put for a little bit longer. My mom is having some surgery this week with hopefully only an overnight hospital stay, life has been certainly busy around here. We booked a vacation for after the first of the year to the carribean so I will tell you more about that later....Barb
