And then there was one:

One child, that is!!! My girls left this morning with my parents for their annual two week summer visit. They have a blast and it is a wonderful break for me. Greg and I went to church this morning and to brunch and it was quiet and peaceful. Of course, by the end of the two weeks we will be missing those girls!!!

I had such a wonderful time with my parents even though it was far too short. I always enjoy visiting with my mom. We had lots of good conversation. Friday night, we watched the new 'Sense and Sensibility'. It was my second time in a week and I LOVE it. If you like period movies like I do, then this is a must see. I actually like it better then the Emma Thompson one and that is saying something since it has always been one of my favorites. The British really know how to do those kind of movies. I can watch them over and over!!!

I don't have any big plans for our first week. Noah and I will probably go to the pool and I promised to take him to see 'Wall-E'. He will enjoy that! :) For now, I am off to put my feet up and enjoy the quiet. The two weeks will fly by so I am determined to enjoy every second!

Weekend Recap:

After a long and lazy week in which my children were climbing the walls and I wanted to pull my hair out, the weekend finally arrived. We spent it relaxing, eating, hanging out with friends, etc. Friday night the girls had a friend spend the night and Greg and I watched 'National Treasure 2'. Saturday ( ahhh blessed Saturday), I left the kids with Greg and met up with CHRISTY!!! We had a fabulous time and I have a picture to prove it!!!! LOL I am so blessed to have sweet friends to hang out with. I can't tell you how many times I have felt low and down on life, and then I have "girl time" and I feel so much better. Christy, you better come visit again soon. I miss you!!!!!

Lazy Lazy....Days!

This week I have been so sluggish. In my defense, I did clean my house Monday, but other then that we have been relaxing. The kids have watched tons of movies and I have enjoyed no schedule. We will go to the pool this afternoon which is such a nice way to spend our time! I updated my reading list for 2008 and I am ashamed at the amount of books I have read. I have got to get going on that. I LOVE to read. I am trying to read some more "classic" type literature. 'Emma' is a slow read for me because I have to make sure that I follow the dialog even though I know the basic story which truly helps! I also added a list of movies and tv shows that I have watched and enjoy/recommend. As a disclaimer, some of them have some objectional content, but are still worth a view. I just rented two movies last week, but I will not put those on my list! :( Sometimes I wonder why Hollywood can't put out better quality. That is why I love the BBC period films so much. They are just really good drama! :)

Fun Week...

I have tons of cute pics to share and I AM going to get them uploaded soon ( I promise Sue-Sue). I got the twins off to camp yesterday and I just know they are having a BLAST! I am teaching a few summer classes this week and LOVING it. I absolutely adore the age group I am working with ( Kears Mom...your daughter is precious)! My DH left today for the rest of the week so for now it is just Noah and me! We went to the pool this afternoon for two hours and now he is showered and happily watching a cartoon 'Transformers' movie. Transformers is to boys what Barbies is to girls! I am so glad that I have the honor of finding that out!!!! ;) Tomorrow we are going to sleep in and then I am taking him to see 'Kung Fu Panda' with a friend and her children. He is very excited! THEN...Noah is spending two nights with the grandparents. I have to teach Thursday and Friday and I have some fun plans for Thursday evening that involve eating, movies, and girl talk with a friend! Christy...I miss you so much! I wish I could say that those plans include you.....BUT... I can't wait for the 21st. :) SO I am planning on a fun week and I just shared that online! How exciting! ;)

Getting back into the groove...

Why is this so hard? Hmmm...lots of reasons...some simple and some I don't care to go into. I am frustrated with myself for not posting all the cute pics I took and journaling our life. I am going to try to do better. I know that I keep saying that, but I truly mean it! What have we been doing? Well.....a whole lot of nothing to be quite honest. I have been sleeping in until a little cutie pie comes in my room and asks me to put a movie on for him. The current favorite is "Air Buddies". Then we lounge around in our pjs all morning eating, drinking coffee (me), playing the Wii ( current favorite game 'Carnival Games'), watching movies/tv, playing with friends and occasionally I do some housework. Then in the afternoon we usually mosey on over to the pool and spend a few hours playing. We come home eat dinner or go to a softball game and then the kids play until bed and many nights they either sleepover at a friends house or we have someone sleeping over here. It is FABULOUS! I do feel as if 100lbs of stress have been lifted off of my shoulders by not having homework or tests to deal with. The girls leave for camp next week and I am hoping to pawn Noah off to MIL for a few days. That would truly be heavenly! So there you have it....just not much going on. Just the way I planned and hoped for.....:) !
