Beauty in an unlikely place

We were at Donnie's warehouse so he could talk to his workers. From the car we could see these really pretty flowers over by an old, rusty road guard. So pretty and yet so out of place. As luck would have it, I had my camera in the car. I think they look like bells but I don't think they're bluebells. Anyone have any idea what they are??

Jacob's Pride Award

Well Jacob got a PRIDE award. Donnie and I were both kind of shocked. We went for his assembly and boy was it a super long one since it was the end of the school year. We got a few pics but they are not the best. I think we are all glad that the school year is over.
Jacob bored during the assembly.

Science Center pics

As usual, I am a little late. Here are the pictures from our trip to the Science Center. It was a really fun day. We had a great time playing with all the cool things. I was really lucky because I had a great bunch of kids. Jacob was happy because his "crush" Rachelle was in our group. They were so good I even bought them all ice cream. I was wore out on the way home and fell asleep on the bus.

My friend is sick.

A friend of mine is really sick. Her insides were filled with cancerous tumors that had to be removed. She starts chemo on the 15Th. I am very sad for her and her family. I haven't seen her in about 12 years. We were actually out of touch for several years and I only knew her for about 10 months when I first got married. But she was one of those people that when you get to know her you can't help but feel this deep connection with her. She is one of the nicest people I have ever met and this just seems so unfair to me. She hasn't had the best luck when it comes to relationships. And she has never had children even though she wanted them. They had to give her a hysterectomy. Please say a prayer for my friend Stacey and her family.
