I cannot believe how hot it is getting outside!
To make it worse my A/C doesn't wanna work either. It "halfway" cools the house. I am so happy that my desk is in the basement. At least I get to cool off there. Gotta figure out a fun way to cool the boys oof too. Anyone know of a good idea? You can only run through the sprinklers so many times.

RUN Forest RUN!!!!

You ever wonder what drives a child?

Jackson has been one that has an impulse to run. The kid could be standing next to you one minute and within a blink of an eye he is gone. And not only does he run but he runs FAST. We have succumbed to the idea of a leash. We have them but only for occasions like the Iowa State fair. But have now decided it may be a permanent fixture on Jackson after losing him in the Altoona Walmart today. Scared the crap out of us. I am so glad he came back to where he started his run. (Which is where I stayed while John frantically ran through Walmart looking for Speedy Gonzalez)

I am not sure what else to do. He has "behavioral" issues at school, which he is getting evaluated for. I feel there is something "not right" about him. He is so smart but has certain quirks about him. I have been told he is NOT ADHD by parents of kids with ADHD. But what else could he be? He goes 110mph all the time. One minute he is the sweetest thing and the next you wanna throw him out because he so nasty. I love him dearly and see the sweet baby he was/is but wish there was more I could do for him. You ask him why he does these things and all he can say is "cause I had to" or " I don't know" with welting tears and a look of confusion and dis pare. My Poor baby.

It's that time of year again. Seems as though Spring has passed us up. The weather has been beautiful out here in Iowa.

The boys are enjoying swim classes and Soccer this Spring. Soom Summer classes for Swim and T-Ball will start.

I got a nice 10x9ft lot cleared for a small garden. I cannot wait for my plants to grow. I am like a little kid the night before Disneyland, except I have to wait over 2months for my veggies.

I am starting to be more concious of things I can make on my own this year.
-I have made my own laundry soap. Compliments of The Duggar family.
-I am more aware of things we can do without buying cleaning products and such. Vinegar is my new best friend.

I am so excited for what this year will bring me and my family.

I am a busy woman I sure hope I can keep up with this Blog. So sorry for disappointing all my "fans"....he he
