Here is my hubby working hard (and getting very dirty) seal coating. During this time in our life, BJ has been working construction and doing his seal coating business. He is doing such a good job with it and I appreciate his willingness to work hard to provide for his family. In our ten years of marriage, BJ has never been this consistently dirty! His appetite has also picked up....definitely three meals a day now! Our boys are his biggest fan club....excited for the day when they can help him seal coat. Although this is not BJ's new career, it might be a way to make extra money on the side during the summer months.

I find myself saying no to the boys... a lot. Sometimes I have to just take a deep breath, relax, and let them have fun. This was definitely one of those times!
The business is already expanding. Tonight at Wal-mart the boys bought a 24 pack of Mug root beer!

Jesse has been practicing his fancy guns moves lately. (Thanks to a cowboy movie!) He walks around the house trying to show me his gun spin. I feel like I am constantly flinching for fear that he will whack me with it! :)

Looking at these pictures, my kitchen looks relatively clean. Six hours later, it was a disaster! :) I was one tired mama and hit meltdown at about 8pm when the clean-up began. Although I am exhausted, it was so much fun to make jam with my older boys and replenish our supply. We had enough berries to make 36 jars of cooked jam (with a few batches of strawberry-rhurbarb), 4 containers of freezer jam, freeze 2 gallon size zippies full of whole berries, and give a bunch to our neighbor and Aunt Linda. Hopefully, it all set up right. :)

Our action packed 4th.... Fort Borst park with the Duncans (and running into a bunch of other people we know!)
You know about Jesse and money! He went crazy!!! But he found...
Jesse, the trolley bell ringer. He took his job very seriously!
After the parade, big Justin and our family headed to the Wiley's for a bbq. Lots of great food, fun, and fellowship!
