well, hello there!

So, long time, no post, right? I’ve been busy with homeschooling the kids and working. I took off Thursday and Friday of last week. Thursday was so I could go to the Canton Flea Market. If you’ve never heard of it, google it. It’s kind of a big deal for us Mississippians. I don’t usually buy anything, I just like to go and look. However, Will insisted on buying some fudge. It was not cheap, but it’s oh so good! Then I took Friday off just because I needed it LOL. Will and I spent most of the day running errands (he was off work too). It was still nice to be able to hang out with him though.
Oh and Jake surprised me the other day by asking if I wanted to go to the Brantley Gilbert concert with him and his girlfriend. My sister was going to go with them but the tickets were for the pit in front of the stage and she wasn’t sure how she’d handle being in a crowd with a bunch of people. The concert acts were good, but the crowd was not. I have been to several rock concerts and the crowds were no where near as obnoxious as this crowd was. This is the first country concert I’ve been to since I was a teenager, so I’m trying to hold off saying that all country concert goers are this annoying. Also, Jackson is a smoke free city (I think) however there were a lot of people lighting up and I just go to where I couldn’t stand being around it. Cigarette smoke gives me a bad headache so right before Brantley Gilbert went on stage, I had to go to the outside of the pit. Which really, I could see better anyway. That’s another thing. I’m 4’11” and people either don’t see me standing there or they don’t care, they will just stand right in front of me. If I ever go to another concert like that, I will be spending the extra money and getting actual seats. Overall though, I had a great time. I don’t really have any good pics from the concert though because I didn’t take my camera, just my cell phone.
However, I did get some pretty good photos of the eclipse last week:

Fourth of July Fun

I hope everyone had an excellent 4th of July weekend. On Friday, my husband, kids, and I went to my inlaws. They wanted me to take some family photos, so I did. I am not entirely happy with my work though. I could have done better but I learned it’s difficult to fend off mosquitos and try to take photos at the same time. My mother in law loved the photos though so that’s all that matters. Will says I’m overly critical of my work. I guess I am.
