Makes My Monday, Great!


Every Monday night we try to get together as a family and spend some time together.  We sing a song, have a treat, talk about our week, and have a spiritual lesson.  Then we sometimes have an activity.  Since Flower has been here, we’ve had an activity almost every Monday!

This week I was in charge of the activity and I was hoping that we could go swimming.  But dinner was late, and it kind of looked stormy.  So I thought maybe playing with chalk outside would be fun.  Juice reminded me that the kids got a fun sprinkler for their birthday party so we should maybe get that out?

Sprinkler fun makes my Monday.

Wet kids July 2011

At least until this showed up.

Well, we were already wet when the rain came!

Busy All Day Long


This morning we went to the church so I could have a meeting with my primary presidency and so we could go through the closet at church.  It’s always nice to know exactly where everything is in that closet!  And boy did we have a lot of stuff.

Also, a mouse.


I spent 4 hours at the church cleaning that closet out (with my fellow primary presidency people) and got home around 3pm.  After a quick lunch and a quick glance at my email, friends came to play.  We broke out our blow up pool and the kids had a ball.

I love summer that you can do this kind of stuff with the kids!  I also love that my kids are old enough to enjoy these kinds of things.  And they are still young enough to enjoy these kinds of things.  I’m really liking this stage.

After a fun dinner with our friends (hot dogs outside so they could play as long as possible), I went BACK to the church.  I made smoothies with the 8-11 year old girls and we had a great time.  We talked a lot about nutrition as well.  I’m going to miss those girls.  This was my last “official” meeting with them.

And now, I’m exhausted.  Time for bed!
