It's just been one big party.
Wendy and the neighbor girl hosted an end of summer party for all the girls from the block a few days ago. It went well. I didn't do a thing.
Allan worked six days this week, and squeezed in some time to get his senior photo taken for the yearbook. I, however, didn't take a single picture of him. New goal for next week.
The little boys found out their teachers this week and we went up the hill to check out their classes and meet Mark's teacher. The little boys have been doing a lot of scrapping lately and school will provide a much needed break from each other.
They did well balloon crewing last night though. They came too much last year and had become bored with it, so they've only come maybe twice this year - last night being the second. It was fun to see the renewed interest and excitement, not shown here.
My husband had his first balloon ride. He was excited. Shown here. (Any Finn will get this one)
He missed flying over the new church build by about a quarter of a mile. I was hoping we could provide an aerial shot.
He also got a new order of wood in the mail and has been busy carving. There is rarely a day that he doesn't carve.
And we got some new additions to the household.
So often in my life things happen during the day that I never would have predicted would happen. For instance on Friday I had no idea I was going to wake up and apply for a job at the schools. Who knew?
And yesterday morning, I had no idea we'd be listening to guinea pigs squeal from Wendy's room before we went to bed at night. Who knew?
I know a few of you are jealous of my email response speed. (These guys were offered up free on an email yesterday) Feel free to come and visit.
I'm going to have 'sucker' tattooed on my forehead.
It's been a good week.
As for today - as soon as I kick the guinea pigs out of the bathroom I'm taking a shower and getting ready for church.
Uncle George is coming over for lunch - shishkabobs on the grill.
Hot - already turned on the air, and a thunderstorm this evening.
Summer is awesome.
