Playing Catch Up

I know, I know, as if my Mama hasn't told me EVERY day....I'm a bad blogger!  Sometimes I just get in a funk and don't feel it, ya know?  Don't lie to me...I know I'm not the only one that just doesn't have it in them sometimes.  Well, today is a new day and I am going to blog you silly!!  I have pictures and more pictures, so be warned!

First off, Joe had a wonderful time on his trip to Peru.  By the second day of talking to him on the phone I was concerned, really concerned, that I was going to spend my retirement on a deserted mountain top in Peru.  Not that I would mind visiting Peru, just don't want to spend my dying days there.  But, alas, by the third day, I felt that my sunny days on the beach were secure once again!  Yay me!! Joe was touched by the need of the people in Peru.  They saw over 600 people in the time they were there and it was definitely an eye-opening experience for him.  He has asked me if I want to go to Africa next year with the same group and I'm considering it...

Here a few pictures from the trip...

These are boats leaning against the sea wall....this is one of my favorite pics.

Ok, since my last post, we have had the Johnson County Fair, which, for Clarksville, is a BIG deal.  I always like to go to take pictures.  

 This is one of the "scarier" rides.  Anna loved it, Jake, not so much.

Anna and Jake have been keeping me pretty busy with both football and cheerleading.  Jake had his Jamboree game on Tuesday.  His team seems to be really good this year...a first for us!!  Tonight the Jr. High team plays in Dardanelle.    

Here are the Jr. High boys after running through their sign before the game against Charleston...

Arkansas plays Alabama this weekend in Fayetteville and I am worried, really worried..... We'll be there to enjoy the festivities, but I will be cautiously optimistic about our chances of beating the #1 team in the NATION!!  GO HOGS!!

I don't think I ever posted the kid's first day of school here it is....

Anna's cheerleading pictures...

The Blue Man Group calling the HOGS!!

If you know Jake, you know he is a big Georgia Bulldog fan.  Last Saturday was his 12th birthday and it just so happened that Arkansas was playing Georgia on tv.  Being the cool mom that I am (uhmmm), I made him a Georgia birthday cake.  He thought it was pretty neat and I had fun with it!

Happy Birthday Jake!!!

Sorry this was such a long post, but we have had A LOT of stuff going on.  Wish I could promise that I would do a better job of keeping up, but I can't.  This thing called "Life" takes up a lot  of my time and I wouldn't change it for anything.

Bye for now.....
