Dad and Josh talking
Mom, David and Matthew:
Dad jumping off the board after much begging!
Dad, he ended up having a pretty good time on the diving board:
Nichole and Matthew:
We really had a great time. After swimming, Josh and I got all cleaned up then went to Buffalo Wild Wings for Karaoke night with some friends. It was pretty fun! Josh did a good job. I didn't sing though, I don't want to have to make all those people go through so much pain. It was really fun to listen to everyone though!
On Sunday, we went to church. In our primary class, I had everyone take a picture with us. We have one more week with them, but are going to miss them all terribly. it was hard to teach them at first, but we really learned to love all of them! It will be very hard to say good bye next week.
After church we went to dinner at my mom's and just enjoyed the rest of the weekend. Today, I am exhausted though! I just want to go back to sleep. I am going to my very LAST class EVER in a few hours! I am way excited to get this over with! I think I am going to go see the new Batman movie tonight too, so I am really excited! It was another fun, crazy weekend in our home, what was yours like?

That is James' Dad (don't worry he left once the shower started)
We played some really cool games that I had found on the Internet. This one was a sock game. There were 12 different socks, each with something that Shawnee can use on her honeymoon, everyone had to guess what each thing was but they could only touch it with their feet. It was soo fun and really funny to watch and listen. Here are a few pictures of that. I didn't get pictures of any of the other games though because my batteries dies :(
The next game that we played was really fun but maybe not so appropriate for all audiences, so we'll fast forward. The last game that we played we the game that Shawnee has made tons of people play. We asked James 20 questions (right before the shower started so Shawnee couldn't get any of the answers out of him). Then during the shower, Shawnee had try and guess how James answered the question. For each one she got wrong, a piece of bubble gum went into her mouth. It was a lot of fun to get payback on her for this game. She had saliva all over by the end :) Here are the last two pictures we could take with my camera before it died.
Overall the shower was great! I know Shawnee was bummed that some of her really good friends weren't able to make it, but hopefully, she still had a fun time! Congrats Shawnee! We are all sooo happy for you and James!
Ok, the shower pretty much took up my whole Saturday...so yesterday we went to my mom's to celebrate all the July birthdays in our family! Shawnee's birthday was the 10th, Nichole's is the 18th and Josh's is the 19th! We ate a good dinner then had cake and ice cream! Logan's friends came over later than evening and we lit fireworks off! It was a lot of fun! I got to hold Matthew, my nephew quite a bit too! I am really going to miss that once we move! He is the cutest little boy!
I guess I will stop rambling now! Hopefully in my next post, we will know for sure where we are moving!

Ok, so enough of the mushy stuff...Josh is going to Cleveland today for his interview! Yeah!!! The only bad thing is that I don't get to go with him. I am staying at my mom's for the next two days, so at least I don't have to worry about scorpions in my bed when I am home alone :) It will also give me time to get things for Shawnee's shower on Saturday all ready! Everyone knows I am the biggest procrastinator so of course I only have ideas right now and nothing completely done. Hopefully, I can get my mom rolling on her blog too. Now that she has one, she needs to post on it!! I also have a test on Monday, so I guess I will be studying for that this weekend too. Wow, I have lots to get done this weekend Yeah...another big busy weekend.
Tuesday night, I I looked out the window and saw I storm coming in. I decided that I should quickly take a shower (I don't like to shower when there is a thunderstorm happening). After my shower, I sat on my front porch and watched the storm come in while Josh was on the phone. It was amazing! There was the smell of rain, the sunny sky to the north and the black sky to the south, the light breeze that quickly turns into a fierce wind, thunder, and lightning. It was truly amazing to watch it come in! I have pictures of it, but I don't have my camera, so I will try and post those later. Hope you all have a great afternoon!

On Friday---Happy Fourth of July! We actually didn't do a lot of festivities. We decided that now that we know we are moving, although we don't know where, that we should start packing and going through some things and decide what we will take, what to put on ebay, etc. So, that is mainly what we did on Friday. Then we went and watched fireworks!
On Saturday---we were just kind of lazy! We did go down to Oklahoma City to do a few things and went to my Dad's to BBQ and play games. That was really fun and something that I will really miss when we move! That pretty much sums up everything that is going on in our lives! I only have like two weeks left of school! YEAH!!! I am very excited to be done! What have you been up to? (Sorry for all the text and the lack of pictures..we did take our camera, just not any pictures)
