This heat is killing me!  All of the sudden it's almost 100 degrees.  We have a swamp cooler at our house and it works well most days but not so much lately.  My garden is loving it though!  My four hear old daughter was out helping me pick strawberries and weed the garden a little.  I turned away for a few minutes and let her pick the strawberries below the peach tree and then I noticed that she had filled her little bowl with baby peaches!  She was helping me pick peaches.  It was so cute!  I guess we'll have no peaches this year!  There are four left on the tree.  I think she understands now that we have to wait until they are big and orange!  :)

I've got a lot of clearance items at 50% off.  Here are a few previews (images are clickable):

Thanks for sharing your wonderful templates.

Your little story shows that there is no better teacher than experience. I can tell my daughters over and over that some of the acrobatics they do are too dangerous, and they risk to hurt themselves, but they usually have to see that for themselves until they do believe me.;-)
Thank you very much for another beautiful template.

I so hear you on the heat. Seems like we didn't even have a winter or spring this year. And the humidity is a killer.

It is so sweet when the little ones really try to help you out. Even if they make a mistake in doing so. It's the trying that counts.

Thank you for another great template. Now I have to go check out your sales (first I better see if I have any money left, LOL)

Camelia said...

Your story about your daughter reminded me of my girls.
They picked some of my flowers in the garden and when I told them not to pick flowers, they said" we didn't pick them, we just cut them",LOL

Thank you so much for the great template.

I love when my kids "help" my in the garden! Our peach tree hasn't born fruit yet (it's young) but our pear tree just started this year. They fight over who gets to water the trees! LOL

She is so darling as she helps her Mother Dear gather the fruit. This will be one of those perfect KODAK Moments, they use to advertise so long ago, that will be a loving part of her life forever.

Thanks for leaving the link available for this lovely template download. Love the mix of the partial oval juxtaposition with the multiple boxes. A fun template for sure.

My Little Ironies

  • I just had to tell my daughter that there was little probability that she could do eighty chores in two hours and 10 minutes to earn a giant lot of pet shops on Ebay that she wants to earn before the auction closes. That's at two chores per dollar. :)
  • We are helping my father sell an old vehicle and what do we find in the glove unused 12 guage shotgun shell...that's my Dad!!
  • How does a three year old end up at church with no underwear on, especially when you dressed him and you know he had underwear on at one point during the morning?
  • The root of all toilet clogging evil is apparently a ball point pen and it's nearly impossible to dislodge one of those from the inside of a toilet.
  • You know you have to do some serious laundry when you actually consider wearing your 11 year old daughter's Hannah Montana shirt.
  • My 6 year old daughter got a comb stuck in her hair and we had to cut the comb into little bits to get it out of her hair.
  • My kids keep breaking the toilet seats! I guess I need a bulk package of those too!
  • Chocolate chips are not a food group.
  • My toilet seat says "Hailee" on it!
  • If there's work to be done, all of the kids need to use the bathroom or get a drink.
  • All two-year-olds think the baby swing is for them!
  • When you have 6 kids, carpet is your enemy!
  • You know you have a large family when your grocery receipt is 4 feet long.
  • The toilet is clogged and my husband found a plastic easter egg in the pipe.
  • My daughter just asked me if she can put chocolate sprinkles on here melted cheese sandwich (really???)
  • I burned up another hard drive on my PC! Can I buy a bulk package of those too?
  • Well actually, my sand pile is full of socks and silverware!
  • My sand pile is full of socks!
  • The key to my treadmill is missing again...can I just purchase a bulk package of them???
  • I fixed my daughter's glasses with JB Weld!
  • I have a pile of sand on my leather couch.
  • My daughter lost her glasses in the snow on the way home from school in January. Someone found them in March and turned them into the school office! Amazingly enough, the school remembered we lost them in January. Wow!
  • Just when I think he knows better, my 10 year old son plugs the bathroom sink and the emergency drain in the sink basin to soak his grow creature, turns on the water, and forgets about it until we notice water flooding out from under the bathroom door! And yes, he locked the door so no one would bother the grow creature!!
  • It's time for another worn out pair of the hubby's pants to disappear! Aren't kids suppose to be the only ones who are attached to clothing?
  • My 4 year old says she needs "peace and quite"!!!!!
  • My Husband says there's a perfectly good reason for the leatherman being in my dish drainer.
  • I have a leatherman (fancy pocket knife) in my dish drainer. I don't know why.
  • My kids are storing a tumble weed in my garage for the winter!
  • My 10 year old son informed me that people have only discovered about half of the world's caves (thank you BBC and planet earth!)
  • My baby's car seat is full of finely crushed graham crackers (?? Little babies don't eat graham crackers)!
  • My husband's shoes are filled with Mr. Potato Head parts!
  • My two year old thinks the new baby swing is for him! He can even climb in by himself and work all the controls. Boy, does he have a rude awakening coming!!
  • I have a giant mud hole in my back yard.
  • My vacuum is fully of plastic easter grass.
  • My kids are too full to finish their dinner, but they have plenty of room left for cake!
  • I have a giant laundry basket full of socks, and we can't find a single match!
  • Miscellaneous items found while cleaning out my kids' toy box include a flashlight, rocks (no suprise), a sea shell (we don't live by the sea), a drill bit, a stapler, and some tree bark!
  • My daughter's medical bills added up to about $18,000, but we got a free sippy cup and a ball signed by the Utah JAZZ Dancers!
  • I put safety locks on the tops of my outside doors to keep my three year old from escaping and she figured out how to open them with a broom in approximately five minutes.
  • I bought the EXPENSIVE vacuum this time only to find that my 3-year-old took it apart with a screwdriver!
  • I haven't showered for 3 days, but my house is clean!
  • I have 38 winter gloves of various sizes in my coat closet and none of them match.
  • We're out of peanut butter because my husband used the rest to catch a mouse in our garage!
  • Yes, my son won 1st place in the science fair at school, but he didn't turn in half of his assignments this term?
  • No matter how many toys my toddler got for Christmas, I still find him in the middle of my kitchen floor sitting in my crock pot!
