Work, practice and school

Yep! I had to work this summer.

I finished an order for the mall.

That will give me some spending cash for my stamping/scrapping habit.

Mckay has almost finished a week of Cross Country practice. Looks like he is about number 4 for the team. not to bad. Of course he talked me into buying him a new pair of running shoes.

Seth got his information on his teacher for this year. He wasn't happy his best friend didnt make it in the same class. It was bound to happen because they have been in the same class for the last 4 years.

We are about finished with the Back to school clothes shopping just a few other items. Now to start on the supplies list.

Letterboxing? What is it? Check out our adventures..

What is Letterboxing?

Letterboxing is an intriguing pastime combining artistic ability with "treasure-hunts" in parks, forests, and cities around the world. Participants seek out hidden letterboxes by cracking codes and following clues. The prize: a miniature piece of art known as a rubber stamp—usually unique, hand-carved creations.

Letterboxers stamp their discoveries in a personal journal, then use their own rubber stamp, called a signature stamp, by stamping it into the logbook found with the letterbox, perhaps writing a note about the weather or their adventures in finding the letterbox.

Learn more about letterboxing here:

I had a friend tell me about this and thought I would check out the links never even dreamed there would be anything that close to us.

Unknown to use there where 9 boxes just in our town.

So we started out Friday the 4th of July and found our first few boxes then we were hooked.

So we worked on the rest of the local ones on Saturday.
Sunday we took a short trip to TN.

Then we spent yesterday afternoon introducing my mom to letterboxing.


This is one of our first finds..
It was located in a city park..
It was called Edward Scissors hands.


This was a really old cemetery at the edge of Tn.
It holds the grave site of Thomas Kilgore a revolution war veteran.


This one was in Bowling Green.
Corvettes are made there.


This is the new Natcher Bridge.. This one was in Rockport..
Check out the cave the first family of Rockport lived in.

Dont forget to hide it better than you found it..

We have lots from the Lincoln Boyhood State Park..



We learned lots here..Although no luck finding the letterbox at this location.

And finally the last few we did yesterday..

Huffman's covered bridge


Chirst on the Ohio this statue over looks Troy

We have searched for 22 boxes and found 20 so far..
