Summer Busy-ness!

Jedi, in his Cub Scout uniform (old picture). He and daddy are leaving today for a father-son camping trip (first ever) with the Cub Scouts up North. My air conditioning, soft bed loving husband will sleep in a tent on the ground for his son and he's excited about it! I'm pretty excited for them both too. Things are planned for the whole weekend, so it should be a blast!
So, I will be having a "girl" weekend. My littles have plans to watch "Tinkerbell" and have their pick of supper...peanut butter buns and Cheetos. Pretty easy, huh? Ballerina Rosie wants to stay up late and watch The Sound of Music with me, so this will be the perfect time to do that. I also have plans to (finally) write out my thank you's for all the wonderful people who sent me gifts, and helped me in any way when I broke my leg, better late than not at all, right?
Jedi and Ballerina Rosie are officially in Level 3 now for swimming. They can both jump off the diving board into the deep water!! Jedi could already do that, but Ballerina Rosie, could not, it was pretty exciting watching them today! Swim lessons...done. This big pregnant lady cannot do them any more this summer, as we had to park 3 blocks away and literally walk up a slow incline all the way there and then sit in a very (hot) warm pool building, while my contractions slowed and I fanned myself with a folder or coloring book and kept my littles busy for an hour in bleachers. (with lots of stairs) I'm out of breath just thinking about it!

I had a great mail day this week and am currently reading these books (The Secret Garden is with Ballerina Rosie for her book club) along with, oh, like 4 other books. I read a lot of books at the same time. I am really into The Book Thief and can't wait each night to read it. I have to admit, I was a little disappointed that it is fiction. I am not a fiction reader. I like real things. But it's pretty interesting, I'm liking it.
Next week, no doctor appts, yipee! Only piano lessons and hopefully an easy going enough week to finally put away the kids' winter clothes and put the summer clothes in their drawers.
After this next week, my list of 31 appts start. (I had one this week) I SO wanted this to not be a busy summer, but with graduation parties, fishing trips, camping trips, swim lessons, piano lessons, doctor appts, vacation, baby coming in August....It's going to fly by, isn't it?
I am someone who needs my down time. I know my kids need theirs too. Just time to be home doing nothing. Just being here. living. There won't be many of those days this summer, probably one per week...I'm praying for peace and for that one day to be enough.


  1. I feel exactly the same way you do about summer. I so need to stay home for more than one day in a row, but it doesn't look like that is going to happen either. Think of all the fun things you could do if you just stayed home! Good luck with all of your appts.
    God Bless.

  2. I know exactly how you feel! I would like some peace this summer as well!

    Those books look great-please do tell about the Strong Daughters, Strong Sons one when you finish!

  3. Thanks for listening to me talk and talk and talk yesterday. I am glad you can relate.

    I figure life is busy. Always has been. Always will be. Sometimes more then other times.

    Figure we will all slow down when we are dead.

    Cool books ya got there. I am done reading for awhile. Almost killed myself staying up so late. I have no self-control.

    Have a great weekend!

  4. prayers for a little more relaxing!!!

  5. I'm glad to hear you are enjoying The Book Thief. I haven't read it, but I saw it at the store the other day, and I thought it looked interesting. I'll have to put it on my never-ending list of books to read =) I hope you have a fun girls weekend! Tinkerbell is a fav in our home, too ...

  6. I started to read The Book Thief awhile ago and rel life interceded and I never went back! I mean, I barely started it. So I am glad to hear it is good and will pick it up again soon!


Thank you so much for stopping and commenting!
