Well the internet has been down for us for the last 2 days....it comes up for about a min and then back down again, not sure what the problem is but I hope it stops....that is the reason though that I have been away and not visiting or posting anything.
So I'm taking you on a walk with me today, with the gas prices being so expensive and the weather being gorgeous outside, we've been walking to and from school everyday. I can't begin to tell you how wonderful it feels especially early in the morning, to get out there and smell the fresh air. I think it's one of the perks of living on a military base, you can walk freely with your children without being scared or feeling endangered in any way.
Yesterday morning we set out towards the school and this time I took the camera, let's walk while we catch up on the last few days.
Now I may be totally ignorant when it comes to plants and especially cactus. I was under the impression that they all looked like the ones we see in movies LOL But when I started walking around this base I realized there are so many different kinds and these caught our attention.....they are blooming ROSES! (or at least what they appear to be)
Now I'm going to be keeping my eyes on all the different cactae around.
We're almost to the school here, it's just around the corner
My beautiful girl chugging down the water before she even gets to school. You know my kids aren't really water drinkers, but to get them to stay hydrated through this horrible heat, I have one of those brita filters on my faucet and I fill up big pitchers of water, pop them in the refrigerator and then when they're thirsty I pour them a glass and add a slice of a lemon from our tree out back. They LOVE it and they've been drinking tons of it.
Another thing they really like is the Koolaid Burstin Waters, grape or cherry flavored. It's great!
My handsome boy :)
Almost home now....
And here we are....home sweet home!
I hope you enjoyed the walk with me. I'm hoping the internet stays up today so I can come around and visit later.
