Where the heck have I been??

I am not really sure myself! Since April our household here has been pretty hectic, and I wonder why my hair is grey (only when I can't find some new hair in a box). We have weathered storms of illness's - first my father ,who can't seem to behave himself, has been in and out of the hospital with cancer/chemo related complications. We found out that his cancer has spread , but with prayer and faith we praise God for everyday.

Then it was my turn to not behave (yes me) because I take after my daddy:). I have been told that I am the most stubborn nurse and my yucky gallbladder full of gallstones finally caught up with me (while we were out of town at a beach wedding). I had been running away from this little problem for about 2 years. Gallbladder problems and fried seafood do not mix I found out the hard way, but ohhhhh was it gooooood!! I ended up with all sorts of problems and surgery in May. Have I mentioned how much I hate being a patient myself??

June seems to be the month for Mr B to take a turn with being very sick, we are just getting over a bowel obstruction. Thank you to his late night "almond" cravings he had to endure 2 ambulance trips, an ER visit and a little vacation in the UNC hospital system. I am amazed by the power of prayer, he was so sick and I was getting worried about the way things were looking, then he turned around for the better. God at work in our lives again!!
In addition to being sick and taking care of my hubby, I have had to endure a major water leak that poured into our basement( 2 days after I was home from surgery)and the install of our new heating and air system. I am so ready to go back to work and get a break. That is where the heck I have been!

Our Yearbook Picture

Each year our local homeschool support group (ACE) does a yearbook, (yes we are socialized enough to have a yearbook) and each family does a page to show some of our pictures or activities for the year. This is our page for the school year 2008-2009. Just wanted to share. I used Photoshop 7 with some digi-scrap templates and elements to put it together. The flip-flop picture was taken on our recent trip to Topsail island, the other pictures were taken by my wonderful photographer friend Sheri Allison www.sheriallison.com .
