One of the reasons I hadn't posted for so long is that we had a change in the way we stored our photos, and I'm not particularly good with change. But now our iPhones are sync'd with "the cloud" and all my photos are instantly uploaded and accessible, which is amazing! I hope to still take shots with my regular camera, but this iPhone method is great for blogging. So now that I've got THAT all figured out....
Here's a look at what's been going on this week--a pretty normal week full of activity and chaos. ;o)
|Seddy loves picking blackberries with Mrs. N and Celeste!|
The kids are always FILTHY which means they are having a
ton of fun with their nanny during the summer. ;o)
(Mrs. N keeps her 3-mornings-a-week schedule year-round)
|On Tuesday I took the kids to a $1 movie in Sherwood. We|
saw "Peanuts" movie, which they had seen before and loved.
Notice Seddy wanted to bring his "Blue Blankie."
|To cap off our cheap outing, we were thrilled|
to see this deal-io at Burger King.
|Tuesday night was a Parish Campout planning|
meeting at Tess's house...and they have a POOL!!
|On Wednesday I dropped off Bunny and Mariposa at Rowell|
Brothers (down the road) to pick berries for an hour.
Only blueberries are left in the fields after our hot start
to the summer.
|James cleaned his drawer!!!!|
|Bunny is quite the chef and loves making these|
ham/cheese roll-ups for herself.
|Marcus had a trip in San Diego and took this selfie of him at|
the race track, which led me to believe maybe these are not
actually "work" trips...
|Wednesday night I took some of the kids to|
Migrant Ministry. Marcus wasn't home (see above)
and I did NOT want to take them all, so I left Bunny
to watch Sedric. It is so great to have a babysitter!
|James assisted during the Mass at the camp.|
|Cellie loved the mini-fiesta!|
|After his trip, Marcus had a little flex time Thursday afternoon|
and he wanted to try out his new pressure-washer (father's day
gift). He took the whole sport court apart and washed the
concrete under it.
|This baby just paid for itself! The Sport Court people could|
be hired to come to do the work, but now we can do it ourselves!
|Thursday night was a late-night date with drinks|
at Clark's on Main Street and a fun trip to Walmart.
(Again...so great to have a babysitter! We put the 2
hardest kids to bed to make it easier for Bunny.)
|I try to spend my Mrs. N time in the school room but in reality|
I am easily distracted. This morning the older girls wanted to
have breakfast at the South Store. How could I say NO
to that?? ;o)
|We talked about their upcoming week at Camp|
Howard and listed some tasks that had to be done.
I am just starting to like coffee after almost 40
years, and my Mexican mocha hit the spot!
