Hello, everyone! It's been a few weeks, but I thought I'd pop in and say hello! A brief overview of what has been keeping us busy!
Soccer. Summer soccer has taken over here with vengeance. Neither Hoss or I were prepared for the amount of time commitment summer soccer would have on our family. There are days I want to throttle my dear sweet friends who suggested it. Ugh!
Swimming almost daily for most of the kids. Lessons for the younger ones and swimming just to swim for the older ones. I seriously have some that would like nothing better than to spend the entire days of summer at the pool. To be honest, so would I!
Church and scout camps have also taken many children, and at times my sweet man, away for days at a time. Not easy for this momma to handle. I absolutely dread times that even one is away. Makes me so sad, but so proud to see them growing and learning away from us.
Hoss, my sweet man, has been forever busy too. Work and attending camps with the younger kids has consumed at least a week's time in June. That means he's left me to my own devices, which is almost never a good thing.
So, does that mean spankings have been at bay? Nope. If anything they have more regular to help me cope with the stress of it all. And yes, as most of you can imagine the stress is high with us being as active as we are this summer. It's been a blessing that he has been tightening up his expectations of me. A few sweet friends have been so kind to listen to me vent and offer suggestions on getting myself better organized and to help keep my sassy mouth under control. We are getting there!
Hope everyone has a great day! Enjoy or avoid the heat depending on your current situation. And for those sweet friends of ours down under who are experiencing a colder than cold winter, stay warm and eat some hot soup for me!
I'd love to hear how everyone else's summer/winter is going, so feel free to share. What's been keeping you busy lately?
