Summer School

Well the 2nd week of summer school is over, only 4 weeks left. This week was a whole lot different than last week. This week it has been soooo hot and humid, tank tops and big hair this week, last week it was thin jackets. I've been trying to get the pool up but it has been a hassle, found a hole and patched it, there was another hole John found it and patched it if it doesn't work this time it's going into the garbage.
News Alert!!! I bought a swimsuit today, first one in over 20yrs.

Birthday Bash

We had our usual birthday party for everyone whose birthdays are in June and Danny because his birthday is July 5th. Becky and Josh he got burned pretty bad awhile back(grease burn). He changed the bandage while there and it looks awful.

My Flowers

I don't have many flowers in my yard because they die on me, but I have bushes that are still living.
I'm not to smart when it comes to naming types of flowers so I don't know what kind this one is. There was something else planted here and after a few years this thing started to bloom.
This one I know it's my lilac bush. I love the smell of lilacs, and I kept a vase full in my kitchen while they bloomed. The only bad thing about these 2 flowers is they don't last long.

School is finally out for summer break. Summer school started this week, of course I signed up to work and after doing so DPS decided to increase the hours and weeks. New we work til 2p.m and go 6 weeks. This week wasn't bad it hasn't been to hot in fact I've had to wear a sweater to work a couple days. Then besides summer school, this week was also vacation bible school. I volunteered to help there also. This week has been busy maybe from now on it'll slow down.

A couple games they were playing at bible school.

Alex got his name called so he could either pick a prize off the table or go into the money machine, he took the money machine and ended up with 3 dollars.

I talked with Linda Louise today she told me that perky is doing ok, and that she goes to the Dr. on Wednesday. Linda called to tell me about her grandson Isiah he was only 2mo's old, he passed away this past weekend. On saturday Justin had the baby and after feeding him laid on the couch with the baby on his chest. They both fell asleep. The baby rolled off his chest and between the couch and Justin. Linda was very upset because she never got to see the baby or hold him. Justin and Rosa are punishing Linda and aren't letting her see the kids.

Tree Art

Alex went to his sunday school teacher's house for a bbq(boys only). I spotted these tree carvings and I had to get a picture. When I picked him up last night I drove back down this street and hurried up and took the pictures (cars were coming) so I didn't get good pictures.

Awards Day

Friday was awards day. Alex came out with citizenship, scholarship, attendance awards along with a mathematics award and a school service award. Then he was awarded with a medal for coming in first place in his class for the multiplication bee.
After the awards there was cake and juice, then it was time to go home. The children have 4 days of school left, I have 5. Then I start the following week working summer school. I don't know if I'm happy or not.

DETROIT, Mich. -- An 18-year-old Detroit man has been charged in connection with a hit-and-run that killed a Detroit toddler Saturday.
Ricardo Velezquez has been charged by the Wayne County Prosecutor's Office with felony failure to stop at the scene of an accident while at fault, which carries a maximum sentence of up to 15 years in prison. Two other charges related to driving without a valid license have been brought against Velezquez.
The family of 2-year-old Cameron Myers said the toddler had run out onto Ferdinand Street, where his father was playing basketball, when a dark green Ford Expedition hit him.
The toddler was pronounced dead at Detroit's Children's Hospital a short time later.
Family members told Detroit police the SUV had white lettering on the windshield that read, "Jalisco Customs."
Saturday evening, police said they had found the SUV near Vernor and Junction roads, being stripped by Velezquez's family.
