Waiting to Exhale

Summer is already in full swing.  When May left ballet, football, Wednesday night activities, and all of those other commitments went with it.  Deep breath in. Wait for it. Wait for it. EXHALE. feels good.  Troy is still home and it causes me to be lazy.  But you know what?  I like it.  I like that laundry can sit folded in 6 baskets and wait a week to be put away and no one really cares.  I like that I am not pacing by the door staring at the clock anticipating his arrival so that I can jet out the door to my next thing. Instead we go to the pool or hang at Lindy's. We play music really loud and laugh while the kids "shake what their momma gave 'em"! We eat PB&J for dinner because we have just been snacking all day.  The kids are more relaxed.  They aren't complaining of boredom yet. 

We have been preparing for VBS and it is going to be a ton of fun. Then I am planning on making a trip up to Ft. Worth to see the 'rents.  It will be fun and there will be no stress because there is NO plan!  I love it!!!!!!  FREEDOM!

Here are some pictures of what went on in May.

Our hero, Jay Senterfitt comes home from over a year in Afghanistan.
The last one is Troy's nasty foot! He had 42 staples, 5 incisions and 4 screws in his foot.  Not to mention the putty and cadaver bone that is in there! OUCH!!
