Yes, We are Still Living Around the Tigerden!

Wow, it has been a long time!  I cannot believe it has been over two months since I have blogged.  I have no excuse, it is just life rolling along and me trying to keep up!

So, here is the summer in a nutshell.  Swimming, VBS, Sports Camp, trip to Idaho, trip to Louisiana to see (from quite a distance) Troy from Swamp People, VBS (yes, again!) trip to the beach and getting ready for school.

I know, it seems like there should have been some time in there, but between packing for trips, going on trips and doing laundry when we got home from trips, it seems the summer was just all about trips and now here we are back to school and I am wondering where the lazy days of summer went.

Along the way, I would take a picture here or there because I totally meant to blog can see how that went for me.  So, here are a few top pics...okay, these are not necessarily the best, they are the ones that have actually made it to my computer!

So, in no particular order because Blogger has changed things around and after trying to adjust and losing the pictures three times, I am giving up!  Above we have Tigerfan's beloved Troy from Swamp People.  We opted out of the six hour line to actually meet him...but he did at least get this picture...that is almost as good, right!
 We got a picture of all the grandkids while we were in Idaho, quite a feat to get a decent picture of nine kids including two teenagers and a 3 year old...but my daddy is awesome and he managed it!
And here, of course, we have the beach...c'mon, you didn't really think I would show you a picture of ME on the beach did you?  This was Dancer and Tigercub's first trip and they LOVED it!  B.B. happened to have one of his dearest friends there at the time and spent a day hanging out with him.  He came back having had a great time AND having tasted his first alligator...he was hooked!  (Really, alligator?)

Anyway, we are now begrudgingly back at school.  The kids are getting back into the swing of things and I am able to get up every morning and not feel like bursting into tears at the thought of another year of this.  I know, not very positive but that is better than our first week back!

Okay, I have now gone through three sessions of trying to get this pseudo update written and I really must go teach something.  I hope everyone has had an amazing summer and I will try to get around to visit as many of you as I can!  Blessings to you!

BTW, in case there is any doubt...this weekend will be filled with college football!  LSU vs. Oregon and BSU vs. Georgia all in one night!  (Geaux Broncos!)  Ha...just to get under Tigerfan's skin!  :)
