Happy Friday!

I know, I've been away from my blog and leaving you all hanging. Thanks for the e-mails checking in on me. I appreciate it.

Things are good...just busy. I've been reading your blogs and commenting once in a while too, but I just haven't felt like writing much.

So, here are some bits & photos:

*School is out for our students at my tutoring center. Yesterday was their last day. So Monday starts our summer program with different hours. Plus other things that I really want to talk about soon.

*We had a great Memorial Day weekend with family and friends. We had great weather and spent a lot of time outdoors doing things. And Matt loved that the fish were biting too.

*Zachariah got a much needed hair cut this week. Perfect for summer. And he's happy to have it off his forehead and out of his eyes.

*No news on the TTC front. I took ovulation tests last month, but that apparently didn't help. Even with careful planning. Bummer. I really need to find a good OB/Gyn and schedule an appointment to talk about things. I'm a bit discouraged about the process. But still of the mind that it will happen. It's all about God's timing.

*Rachel is doing awesome! Thanks for all your thoughts, well wishes, and especially prayers!

*I can't believe that May is almost over.

*I also can't believe that the class I had for student teaching (who were in 5th grade then) are graduating this Sunday! I'm fortunate enough to have known one of my student's family very well, so we will be attending his graduation party.

*Last week we reorganized our office/guest room, so it's more of a guest room and a little less of an office now. We still have a desktop computer that we use from time to time, but mostly we use our laptops. So we don't really need all the office space. We are going to sell our 6 foot x 6 foot "L" shaped desk, and we bought a smaller corner desk instead. It's great. I still have some organizing, sorting, and cleaning to do, but it looks nice. Plus I really like the new flat-screen monitor we bought. And there is a new wireless printer on it's way. Yay! Our printer hasn't worked right in a while.

*I have two giveaways up at my review blog right now. One is for a cool DVD for the whole family (contest closes Sunday, May 31st), and the other is a Hip-T to cover your back in those low-rise jeans.

*That is all. Hope that you have a Happy Friday! And a great weekend! We're happy to spend ours at home with few plans.

Glad to hear you're doing well. I know *I've* slowed down with the blogging lately. Must be that time of year....

Oh he looks so much happier with the hair cut, and so much older looking! :) CUTIE!

Glad to hear that all seems to be going well your way. I've also been lacking on the blog front my side of the water, lol. I'm heading back there now and writing a new post :D

Sorry to hear about the TTC this month =/ I'm sure it'll happen soon, just keep in mind stressing makes it hard too. I had a friend who had her daughter within the first 4 months of being with her man and when she tried on baby number two it took her a whole year and 3 months for girlie number 2 =/ ..same guy.

*BabyDust!!!!* xo

Love the new hair cut! He looks so grown up.

Wish I had some good advice on the TTC but it's different for everyone. So, I just wish a hearty good luck! Can't wait to celebrate the 2 pink lines with you.

Cute summer hair cut. Very grown up!

I can relate on the ttc front....took us over a year of trying to get #2. I never tried the ovulation sticks, but I did chart to get a good idea of when our "window" was. It really helped. If you're interested, I can send you the sites and names of books I used. Good luck!!

I love the hair cut!! I think we are all backed up on the blog front as of late. Eh, it happens.
