Memorial Day

The girls and I spent a good portion of the day in the van on our way to and from my hometown (Mitchell, SD) to see my dad, visit my mother's grave and get the girls hair cut. My cousin Julie was kind enough to cut the girls hair (no really cool). Our regular hair dresser just had rota tor cuff surgery and will be out for a while.
Mahlet & Hannah with Julie.
Finally a picture with a decent smile from Hannah...Mahlet never takes a bad photo.
This was Mahlet's 1st hair cut since she joined our family...should I have saved some hair? Is she not just too beautiful to be 11. Yikes...She is already too crazy about boys.
I couldn't help but snap some photos of the majestic SD probably wasn't safe while I was driving...but I could not resist.
Pictures never do justice to the beauty we see in South Dakota.

So Much to Do

We have so many projects to get done before we put our house on the market. The driveway is a big one. Destruction began on Friday and it was loud as some of the garage floor had to be torn out. The girls and I enjoyed watching the men tear out big pieces of concrete and haul them away. This move is a big one because it is by far the longest we have ever been in one place (13 years). Before that we seemed to move about every 2 years so it was easy to keep our junk edited. Thirteen years gives you a lot of time to gather a lot of crap but I can tell you it is liberating chucking so much junk. The only problem is my allergies...I am allergic to almost every airborne allergen there is. From the dust we are creating in the house mixed with the dust from the driveway project mixed with me trying to attend Molly's soccer games has me miserable. I have the worst reaction at Molly's soccer games and it ticks me off the most as I love cheering for her and her team. They have had a undefeated season and I just got a call from Ron and they came from behind and won their game tonight and will play in the championship tomorrow night. Way to go SL Athletica.
This nice piece of equipment was parked in front of house all weekend...I think Ron wished they would have left the keys so he could play.

Hannah wanted to take my photo in the bucket
My safety girl Hannah insisted on having her helmet around the heavy equipment...but girl it needs to be on your head.
Hannah love to ride her bike but could care less if she rides with training wheels forever...
