I'm not completely sure why I haven't posted since last Friday, wait...oh yeah, we have been crazy busy! Saturday night we went to a baseball game and stayed for the fireworks after. The game didn't get over until after 10pm. It was worth it to see the fireworks though. They were great. But what was even better was the tribute videos to 9-11. I was crying, of course, and was reminded once again what a great nation we have and how fortunate we are to live here.
Sunday we finally got to church as a whole family. It was refreshing and much needed. But unfortunately I almost fell asleep when one of the girls snuggled up against me! We barely made it home before naps started. lol The rest of the day was spent resting and taking it easy. It was great!
Monday was unique to itself. Steven was off work. 'Nuff said.
We slept late, stayed in our jammies most of the day, and watched way too much t.v. It was glorious!!
For the 4th of July we went to some friends' house and ate yummy food and then shot off fireworks. By the time it was dark enough to see the "pretty" fireworks, Bug and Steven were pretty much done. ;-) We did get to see some pretty cool things even if they were supposedly illegal in our city!
Bug handled the fireworks better than I did and actually enjoyed them quite a bit. I think I heard her say something like "pretty" a few times. She would point at the fireworks and her eyes would just shine with joy. It was a very enjoyable evening and we are so thankful for such good friends.
Tuesday was catch up day. We had to clean the house like crazy because some friends were coming over to talk about homeschooling. Woohoo! You know I love talking about homeschooling. heehee It was a great evening but another late night. But oh so worth it!
Today was just plain lazy. After we did some Math, that is. The older two girls got to go bowling with a friend and the rest of us took naps. That seems to be a theme at our house right now. ;-)
The TOS Crew is gearing up and we are starting to get some of our vendors lined up for the first reveiws. I can not wait to get started with this year's Crew!
Busy times, good times.
