Can Huggies

This one has stars on it and is just in time for The 4th of July. These go without any explanation!
What do you all think of my newest creation? Yeah, I know, I can put boobs on anything! haha
I've got more ideas for these and you'll be surprised, I'm sure.

Fluffy Stuffies Swap

I participated in the Fluffy Stuffies Swap over at the 'Mania and this is what I received. Isn't she pretty? Tamking did a beautiful job on her. She is really detailed. Her dress even has a snap on the back and can be removed. She also sent the yarn and angel cloth. Great job Tammy! Thank you so much!

Camping Trip

Here I am shooting at some wild beast in the forest! This is Andy's friend Evan that went with us. His parents would be so proud of this shot! haha

Here's Andy getting ready to shoot and Evan watching him.
Here's Andy's 2nd place trophy.
Here's the boys getting air out of the tent so they can put it in the bag.
This is our trailer and the camp we had set-up.

And here I am, pulling yarn from a skein.
Pretty valley.
This is a group of archers shooting at the long distance animal. I didn't get the moose in the picture though. If you click on the picture, it will enlarge and you can see them better. Believe it or not, there is a woodpecker in this picture. He's low on the right side of the main tree. He had red feathers around his head. If you click on the picture, it will enlarge and you can see him.
We had a fun time. Andy got 2nd place and I got a 3rd place. Evan won a gift certificate for an archery shop in Yakima. Now his folks will have to go get him some equipment. He really did well for his 1st archery shoot. His score about doubled from Saturday to Sunday.

The weather was a little rainy and a little windy, but not too bad. It was tolerable to be outside.

This weekend we are having our archery club picnic and Andy leaves on Saturday morning for football camp in Boise, ID. He'll be gone 5 days. He is really excited about it. It will be quite an experience for him and I'm sure he'll make some new friends along the way.

Mom's New Puppy

This is the new puppy that Mom got last week. She's a miniature Dachsund. Isn't she a cutie! She only weighs 1 lb, so far.

Here she is playing with one of her big sisters.
This is her other big sister and she's not so happy about the new puppy.

From Robin Concerning Linda Slick

Robin emailed me a couple of days ago to tell me that Linda Slick has been given only a couple weeks to live. If you are a classmate and would like more information to contact her, please email me and I'll send it to you. You can reach me here: Jodi

Today From Robin:
This probably goes without saying but I know how busy our lives get and understand how sometimes good intentions get buried in the hustle of living so just wanted to say............If you're touched to write to Linda (or visit), do it today, or as soon as possible. She may outlive doctor's predictions of 2-3 weeks or she may not have quite that long but she would appreciate your support, remembrances, prayers, thank you's, etc. now while she is still able to read them herself and process her impact on the lives of old students and friends. I visited her yesterday and she does remember so many of you with love and loyalty.

Friday Night

High School graduation is tonight and tomorrow for most of the local schools. It's going to be a beautiful weekend for us. Very HOT though! Over 100! Summer took it's time getting here, but it's here now.

Andy made it through is first week of football practice. He's getting tanned already on his neck and his face from all this sun.

Mike finally has the whole weekend off! WooHoo! It's been a while.

I'm going to be working on some more pillows and hats to sell at the shoot we're planning on going to next weekend. I hope I can sell a few things. My store has been keeping me pretty busy though. I also have a couple more swap items to make up and send out. I think I'm going to take some swap time off. I've got a couple of baby afghans to finish up too. One is an order, one is a gift.

I hope that everyone has a good weekend!
