Ready for a Nap (and it's not even lunch)

What a week it has been! With Jonah at Bible Camp this week and Phillip in Florida, Courtney and I have had the best time together, just one on one, Mother Daughter time (for the most part). Along with Courtney making two pairs of flip flops (I'll have to post the purple and tie die flops later)on Monday, Scrapbooking for 13 hours on Tuesday, Celebrating the Fourth on Wednesday, Courtney spending the day Thursday playing with a friend while I scrapbooked and organized some old photos. Then every night Courtney and I crashing in my bed late after staying up watching HGTV. Which is our favorite TV channel. It has been a great week.

On Friday, Jonah came home and OH, how we missed Jonah. Courtney and I picked Jonah up from camp around 3:30. He nearly talked our ears off on the way home and if I did not know any better, I would say he had a great time. However, I did dissappoint him this morning when I asked how bleach got all over his camp shirt and he told me that someone squirted him with bleach. He then looked at me and said "you can get it out, right". Unfortunately, that is a laundry trick that I have not learned yet.

Last night the kids and I went with some friends to the drive in, something that is normally a "daddy thing" to do with the kids and we even stayed for the second movie, which I have never done. Last time I went to the drive in, I crawled in the back seat and went to sleep. Anyway after leaving the drive in at midnight, I realized how crazy I was because the kids had to be at our neighborhood's "Alex's Lemonade stand" at 8:00 this morning. What was I thinking?

Since the Lemonade stand is just opposite of our house. I did let the kids sleep till 7:45 and sent them out the door with breakfast in hand. This is the kids second year helping with Alex's Lemonade stand and it will be something that we will either start or continue once we move to Florida. All proceeds goes towards the fight for childhood cancer. What a GREAT cause!!!

While the kids were selling lemonade, I decided to mow the grass. It is funny how a little much needed rain can suddenly make dead grass or should I say weeds grow. However the grass would look better if I knew how to weedeat. I guess I'll be making some phone calls before my nap. Any takers? Well I have rambled on long enough. It is getting closer to lunch and then I think we all may take a nap or maybe I'll take the kids to the pool and I'll nap in a chair by the pool.

Whew! That wore me out just reading about your week/weekend! Barry just now got home from work and I am pretty pooped myself, but I wanted to check in on all my buddies before crashing. See you in the morning! And by the way, I think it's great that your kids help with the lemonade stand. Way to go Courtney and Jonah!

Ok...I know my post time says 7:52, but it's really 9:52. I couldn't get lucky enough to be in bed by 8! :-) Don't know why the time reads wrong!
