Here are the pages that I had to finish up with the journaling. Went to the airport this morning -- earlier than usual -- to see if we could get there during "rush hour". We still didn't see that many planes. I'm ready to give up! It's so disappointing. When the boys ask if we can leave, then I know it isn't too exciting! I bring along a magazine, so I don't mind sitting there for a while

Stopped at Michael's and picked up an American flag. We hadn't had a pole in a couple years, so we haven't displayed one on the front of the house. We had the flags, just no poles. We were the only house in 5 or 6 that didn't have a flag! Walmart had them for $24 -- too much for me! Michael's had them for $12.99, and I had a 50% off coupon! We're good to go! It's a good thing -- Owen just learned to say the Pledge of Allegiance. Actually, we've had one hanging on our livingroom wall for a couple years!

We're in the market for a pool WITH some kind of filter - just don't know where to put it. Our backyard is a parking lot, and down the hill it's only level in one spot -- THAT's where the trampoline is! I think Jim's picking up a 10 footer on his way home from work. It's a good thing. We'll figure something out. WE NEED MORE ROOM!

**Change of plans. I'm going to Big Lots right now, so I can't check my spelling and grammar!!
** UPDATE 6:20pm Friday -- we bought the 12' pool, plus a cover, skimmer/vacuum, and extra filters.

Enjoy the pages!

Isn't this vintage paper cool!

To make red scalloped edge, I used EK Success small corner rounder. You take off guide,
