What was I like in highschool? 

not like this hehe - but it was a fun quiz. I was really a brainy girl, who was on speech team and in biology club. Read all the time and was in a bible study group on my lunch break. I did have friends of all different types. I was overweight but not really made fun of. I had a few good friends who I hung out with (Hi Jodie!)  and boyfriends on and off.

You Were the All American Kid

Popular but not plastic. Athletic but not a jock. Smart but not a brain.

You were well rounded and well liked in high school.


A Happy Layout!

everything about this layout makes me smile! first the photo of Dwight and Jo is so heartwarming and sweet. I loved how the white space really worked on this layout. And the bright little pops of colors makes it all feel whimsical an girly.
Just a few fun quizes!

What American accent do you have?
Your Result: The Midland

"You have a Midland accent" is just another way of saying "you don't have an accent." You probably are from the Midland (Pennsylvania, southern Ohio, southern Indiana, southern Illinois, and Missouri) but then for all we know you could be from Florida or Charleston or one of those big southern cities like Atlanta or Dallas. You have a good voice for TV and radio.

 We have been having a very lazy summer but enjoying it. We have gone to the Zoo a few times, gone swimming and to the park. Played with friends. On friday is the Pool party at our townhouses - that will be fun. Next week is Seth's 8th Birthday - Wow how did he get so big? We are going to have a little party at the park for him.  We are starting to get our activities planned for Fall - school in Sept, Youth group will start for Tim then too, Brownies and Junior Girl Scouts for the  2 girls (and Me, the Brownie leader) , not sure what Seth will be doing yet. Tim may be playing soccer and the younger 3 will be doing a science homeschool group with friends.   Busy time of year.  I think I really need to enjoy this last month of summer.
