A Note about our further problems: We got our template switched over, and when we went to go look at all the comments we were getting, WE COULD NOT SEE THEM! Do you know how maddening it is to know you have seven comments, and not able to read one of them?! It is very maddening! Well–the comments are fixed, but our homepage is very W-I-D-E! Oh dear! Well, it’s getting there! Thank you all for your comments! We LOVE them : ) ~Jessica
Hooray! The Surprise is here!
Do forgive us for the delay…we would have had it up last night, since we were up until midnight anyway, but we had some technical difficulties . Such as things getting mixed up on the sidebar, or the blog template suddenly getting bigger than what it was on our testing blog, etc, etc, etc! We still have one big problem, being the picture at the top won’t center for all screen resolutions, so if it looks off centered, that’s because your computer has problems! Just kidding! Right now it looks fine on our screen resolution, and we are going to try and fix it before long, so that it will look centered to everyone. If you happen to know how to do this, we would be happy to hear from you! I googled it, and googled it, and I am not finding anything very helpful—at least for what would work for homeschoolblogger : )
AND having a new blog template is not the only surprise, we are going to be hosting four giveaways! Stop by next Monday, September 7th, for the first one! Each of the following three Mondays, we will be hosting a new giveaway.
One day, Susannah and Cassia told Leah and me that they had this great idea…we should CHANGE our blog template, AND host a giveaway for our one year "blogoversary" : ) At first I thought they were crazy! The giveaway was doable, but changing our template was another story. We all agreed that it had to be something we all really liked, not just something we could put up with. So in the past few weeks, I have gotten a crash course in HTML . What you see is the finished result of trying "this", and trying "that", and approving everything by at least 5 of the seven sisters : D It’s amazing it’s even done!
Okay! Now for some pictures : ) This past Easter we took a lot of group pictures as you probably remember, and so a few weeks ago, we decided we needed some updated, summer pictures : D Enjoy!
Being the oldest, it has taken a long time for me to be able to "look up" to any of my sisters : D As you can see here…I finally can!
In order: Bekah, Leah, Cassia, Susannah, Jessica, Anna, Charissa
Forget the tree huggers! We’re corn huggers .
Well, Susannah is tall, but not that tall…she had to stand on her tip-toes.
This one is my favorite!
What happens when somebody on the bottom decides to be ornery, and fall down?!
We are all supposed to be whispering and pointing at the camera, but it looks more like we’re just sharing secrets : D Something sisters do well, right?!
And our two, very cute, adorable brothers, who kept running in and out of the corn while Mommy took our pictures : D
I made the next pictures bigger, so you can see what we’re doing : D
We can be pretty goofy sometimes….
And serious when we need to be…
….but not for long!
We were trying to do the "serious face" pictures, and as you can see in the picture above, some of us were having some trouble : )
Watch out! It’s a good thing we weren’t shooting at Mommy! Although it would have only been fair….she was "shooting" us!
Thanks for visiting! Be sure to visit us next Monday for the start of our giveaways!
