Holy BUSY, Batman! So much has been going on here! I know that it pales in comparison to most of your schedules, but it's definitely making my head spin here.
First, we started swim lessons Monday-Thursday for two weeks. The boys were old enough, but Kaila has to wait for the Fall session. Nick jumped from Level 1 to Level 2 the very first night. Blake followed him to Level 2 the next night. How cool is that? I was shocked. They were finally tested Wednesday night to see which level they would each be recommended for in the Fall. Nick moves to Level 3 and Blake has to stay in Level 2, which is fine. It will give him more practice. So, I'll have Blake and Kaila in Level 1/2 (5:30-6:15) and Nick in Level 3 (6:30-7:15) - something to that effect. My point is, I'll be spending a couple hours at the c0llege for two weeks straight. Gee...I can't wait.
Volleyball has ended. We didn't win anything on Thursday nights and Monday nights we lost the championship and ended up with second place. I was exhausted. I thought for sure I was going to pass out before we even started! It was fun and I was sooooo sweaty. I wish it was like that every week. Now, we'll have six months of much needed rest. Who am I kidding? I'll be ready to go again in a couple weeks.
During the midst of the last two items, we purchased a new vehicle. We traveled 1 1/2 hours one way to get it. We were there a ridiculous 4 hours! Man! Just cut to the flippin' chase already. Tell me what I want to hear and don't waste my precious time. Well, we drove home in a new 2008 Envoy 4x4. I was disgusted with the salesman - sloppy, potty-mouthed and many other bad attributes I won't mention. It's sad to say, but I think we actually got the pick of the litter of salesmen though. Pathetic!
A day after we purchased our new vehicle, I had a scrapbook supply party that went very well. It was a gorgeous day, Mary wasn't very late and she had a ton of new stuff. It was fun.
Here are a couple layouts that I've done in the last several days. I used Becky Fleck sketches for both of these.
Thanks for taking a peek!
