Happy July!

July 1, 2010

So the Challenge did work out so well.  It turns out I can barely do once a month so I guess doing once a week was too much.  The good news is that my summer is looking a bit more better for free time and kid-free time so who knows.

The girls have started going to our town’s playground program.  It’s available  every morning for 6 weeks for the low registration fee of $5.  Yes, $5.  When a friend of mine first heard about it she called to ask what the weekly fee was after you register.  Then we both fainted when the answer was there was no weekly fee – it was JUST the $5. 

We had a really fun June.  The girls “graduated” from 3-year old preschool.  Thankfully, it’s not the type of school that actually requires paper gowns and hats but they did have a nice picnic and each child got a diploma, award, photo album and yearbook.  The yearbook was hysterical.  Each child had a page with their favorite field trip, snack, thing to do at school, and what they want to be when they grow up.  A. would like to be a princess and R. would like to be a cowgirl.  (Later R. told me, “I want to be a cowgirl when I grow up.  Or a doctor.”  Good to have goals, huh?) 

After having to drag the kids to school three mornings a week we kind of just stopped doing anything for a week after that.  Pajamas 24/7, lots of TV, games, reading, and sitting on the couch.  You get the idea.  After that we, thankfully, started swim lessons and Ki.ndersports with lots of playdates and fun stuff in between. 

Then we had last week which started with R. having a high fever and no other symptoms (ending our plans to visit a local amusement park) and ended with a huge storm that felt like a tornado (complete with golf ball sized hail.)  We were very lucky and only went without power for 2 days.  A friend of ours had a tree land on her garage+car BUT had power the whole time.  All things considered, I’d rather lose a freezer full of food.  (And I didn’t even lose that.  See, it’s not necessarily a bad thing to NOT go grocery shopping for 2 weeks.)  We were lucky enough to pack up and go to my IL’s house AND they weren’t even there.  It was like a vacation.  Their house is clean, has central air, and cable.  No pressure to do laundry or finally finish painting the kitchen. Bliss!

Now, a week later, all of the roads in our town are clear, power is restored, the heat wave has broken (*knock on wood*) and the kids are safely at the playground.  Woo-hoo!  Off to do some more housework.
