Random-Memorial Day-and school

Our Memorial Day was kind of a quiet one-we went swimming at HSU where Mike teaches-they have a 
really nice pool.
The kids swimming and Brandon and Analeigh eating a snack by the pool.
I just love this shot of Analeigh-I love black and white photos and I loved how the wind was blowing her hair all around.  She loves to have her photo taken.

Next, we came home and while I cooked burgers and hot dogs on the grill the kids and I made something for dessert-do you know what we made?  Can you tell from these photos?

The big can is the outside of the contraption -the little can has the ingredients in it.  Any clue yet?
Here it is after much shaking, rolling and spinning around-Yep-ICE CREAM!

The final product.  It was really good.

At the pool a butterfly landed on my shoulder and it stayed there for a really long time.  I walked down from the table area at the pool all the way down to the pool and it stayed on my shoulder the whole time. It was really neat.  I love butterflies and a friend and I started a weight loss group called FAITH 101 and our symbol is a butterfly so this was kind of neat.

This was the last day of school-Wednesday June 2, 2010.
My three amigos and Alyssa's last day of Elementary School.  Made me almost as sad as the first day of Kindergarten.
The kids with their teachers.  Brandon with Mrs. Partin-Alyssa with Mrs. Gililland and Derek with
 Mrs. Watson.
It was a fun and busy last week.  Along with Brandon's broken arm and our car being broken into-it was kind of crazy but fun.
On His Pathway-

Thank you for visiting my blog and commenting. I also homeschooled our daughter who struggled with dyslexia, from fifth grade through graduation. It worked out so well for her.

Have a blessed week!

Looks like an awesome day...we did home made vanilla bean ice cream for Memorial Day...then I had to make Big Red ice cream last night...enjoying summer.

Could use prayers for my 21 year old, he will be going to the doctor tomorrow, he had a seizure. He has done this four times in two years...we were almost to the one year time without any. He is the one who wants to go to Hardin Simmons, now I don't want him going anywhere. It looks like sleep deprivation, but we need an answer...please remember him in pray and me...this mom is having a hard time.
