Whirlwind Weekend

Sometimes the weekends are so packed with activities I'm glad to get back to the work week :) My children were so worn out-the sun was brightly shining in their room this morning and I still had to wake them up from a deep sleep! That is a rare thing around here.

Friday night we took the once in awhile trip to the store as a family to buy some birthday presents and just goofed around. We kept the kids up late running them around the house in hopes of tiring them out so that they might possibly sleep later than 6:30am the next day. Didn't work.

Saturday morning we went to look at some houses with a realtor, then to the park, then to a birthday party for my 85 year old grandmother :) The girls spent the majority of the day outside playing and filling their guts with chips, hamburgers, potato salad and super sweet birthday cake.

Sunday was church and boy was I dragging! After that we got ourselves suited up for a swimming birthday party for my nephew. However, as luck would have it, a cold front blew in and the high was only 75 degrees! Oh well, once you got in the water it wasn't too bad. The girls had a lot of fun and show promise in the swimming department. I am obviously going to need to purchase a maternity suit- mine barely came to my belly button. Then they loaded up on cheetos, cake and suckers. Sheesh.

When bedtime came around they went without a peep. Usually we have to discipline a few times every night for them getting up and playing, but not last night. I got up early this morning and even though I was wide awake then, guess I was still tired because after I made breakfast and got Leiah to school, I kept dozing off on the couch till 9am!

So, today I've been picking up the house, cleaning bathrooms and floors, working on laundry etc. Next I need to make some more kefir, do the dishes, fold some clothes, make dinner (because we're going to look at more houses tonight so I have to be prepared early) and work on my sewing projects. Maybe I'll get around to taking some pictures of the sewing. They are very simple and shouldn't take long to make.

Tomorrow I have the last meeting with the school, because we disagreed the last time. Not sure what will transpire- we will both stand by our decisions from the last one, so I don't see what there is to discuss. Other than that, I guess I should probably pack my house up again, but I don't really feel like it :)

So, a long post about nothing really. Kudos to you if you've read this far. Here are some possible names we have picked out for the baby. Feel free to vote on any you like:

I feel for you on the "packing up your house AGAIN" part....I feel like I've packed up our home a ga-gillion times!! I pray this is the last time...

And 75 degrees ~ that would be a heat wave here in MI ~ we would all be hittin' the water!!
