I just noticed I only did 2 posts for the whole month of July. I'm feeling like such a slacker. And it's not that we haven't been doing anything - it's just I"ve been lazy about taking pics and blogging. So what have we been doing? Actually, nothing very interesting. David's been working and going to school - still. Since he's working 2 jobs (at the prison and still doing process serving), I've had to help out a lot more with the serving. I've done all the court runs and for a couple weeks I had to go pick up his papers in downtown Phoenix then even do about half of the serves myself. Not very fun with 4 kids in tow. Sooo....Amber's earned a lot of babysitting money this summer! I pay her $1/little kid/hour. On weekends, David is usually doing homework, but when he's done, we'll go do something - maybe get dinner, catch a movie, go shopping, etc. The house is a constant mess. I try to keep up with it, but I have 4 girls who are very skilled in mess-making working against me. lol And to make things worse, I can't convince our dumb pool to turn blue for anything! I'm getting really frustrated with it. Anyways, here's the few pics I do have:
Teaching Shyla how the piano works

Coloring together. The mess on Amber's face is make-up. She and Jade think it's fun to make their faces ugly.....not sure why.

Cute dress I just finished for my friend's baby

Paisley modeling the pettiskirt Aunt Shelley made for her. She LOVES it!

Ha ha... I feel the exact same way about my messy house... I try so hard, but as soon as I clean the kitchen/bedroom/bathroom one of the 3 littles comes through and just undoes what was already done... Sometimes I feel like Jer is a 4th kid though... is that normal?!
