is flying by!

I had such high hopes for getting soooo much done around the house this summer.  Yea…NOT so much!  We also had hoped that construction on our house addition would be done.  Yea…NOT so much.  In fact it hasn’t even started.  Why is it that no one else is in a hurry when you are?  Banks, appraisers, building permits, etc….we are waiting now to see if our plans have been approved and permits given and then construction will begin.  As if starting school and all the other activities that will start up isn’t enough chaos, let’s add in an addition and remodel of the kitchen!
Ah well, we wouldn’t know how to act if there wasn’t chaos all around us.

For what has been going on- Samie had cheer camp, church camp and dance camp.  Sydney had church camp and has spent a lot of time with Mema at her house on the lake.  Which will soon, we hope, not be an option as she is selling it and will be moving in with us.

We were able to get away for awhile and celebrate Sydney’s 6th birthday.  We went to Myrtle Beach and it was so great to get away and just enjoy family.  Of course just walking out the door to the beach was pretty nice too.

Samie and Sydney took turns burying each other in the sand.

I love being the photographer… holding an expensive camera is a great excuse for not getting wet!

Sydney had a great birthday and we had an awesome time at the beach.
