(When I took this photo - there were five people huddling under my umbrella - two adults, two teenagers and Mark)
Did I mention that June is kicking my butt?
I just woke up from a two hour nap. My husband wonders why I've been so fatigued. I do this thing where I get exhausted just looking forward on the calendar. And I get exhausted when the yo-yo schedules begins again as my mind and body try to keep up with his frequent schedule changes.
For instance - he was going to be gone on Monday.
Now he's not.
But he'll be gone on Tuesday. And maybe Wednesday. maybe.
I'm going up north sometime in June, but I won't know if he'll be home to leave the boys with him until the last minute.
And so on.
And then there is the real busy. Like this weekend.
I survived the field trip Friday, and then made it home in time to quickly whip up a graduation card and head out to a graduation party.
I was at Meijer at 9:30, walking out with an overflowing cart.
Saturday was soccer and taking Wendy shopping for a few things for confirmation (shoes and stuff)
Today was our Sunday school picnic, but the weather was sketchy. Storms were blowing through both here and at the picnic location during the time it would normally start. High winds, thunder, lightening and heavy rain.
There ended up being a half hour rain delay, so we got there right on time. During the couple hours we were there the sun shone, it rained again, the sun shone again, it warmed up, it cooled off, we heard thunder, it POURED, and then it all repeated, but everything got done. The service, the food, the ice cream and races.
The kids that toughed it out came home with fuller candy bags than usual. Well, except Brian who complained that they threw more in his brother's direction than his and wasn't amused when I reminded him that he - our in house saver - probably still has last year's haul around here somewhere.
This year's scramble video: (taken with my phone - I left my camera at home, not wanting to deal with it in the weather we were having)
And then, as for this week - our last week of school....
- soccer banquet
- We the People presentation
- 5th grade recognition
- soccer practice for both boys
- soccer games for both boys
- My mom is coming to town (she gets her keys)
- I WILL find time to go meet my newest nephew
- PTO stuff
- confirmation (class)
- And planning for the following week, which seems like it should be less busy with school being out, but it's not. I looked - it's busy until the third week in August.
- And that's okay, as long as I get a nap in now and then.
