Weekend Rewind....

Weekend Rewind.....

Not much going on this weekend.  I wanted to go somewhere and do something but hub did not.  He wanted to just 'hang' around the house-like always. I like to go and adventure out, but hub is the kinda of man that is happy just doing nothing.

I did manage to talk him into going to the Chicagogea Festival on Saturday. A cloudy, not so hot day for this. Looking at crafts and listening to music is right up my alley.

Managed to stay for a couple of hours before heading home.

We have been behind in rainfall this year.  We might have gotten a 'little sprinkle' last week but not enough to wet a whistle.  However, yesterday the skies opened up and the rain came.  In less than 30 minutes, we had gotten over 2 inches of rain along. 
Along with the rain came severe thunderstorms.The thunderstorms would last for an hour.  In about an hour another thunderstorm would pop up. This lasted for 6 hours.  I didn't mind the rain because we really needed it, but the s…

1. What summer activity most takes you back to your own childhood?

Here lately, it would be catching fireflies.  Grandson has spent several nights with us, and this has been our nightly routine.

2. What's your favorite summer smell?
Rain on the pavement after a hot day.

3. It's beach season in the US of how do you feel about sand?

Years ago when we would take the girls to the beach, I absolutely hated sand.  Sand was everywhere-from in their mouths to their toes.  Now that both daughters are older, I really don't mind the sand.

4. Sun tea, SunChips, sunflower seeds, Capri Sun, Sunny Delight, Sun-Maid raisins, sun-dried tomatoes...your favorite food or beverage with sun in its name?

Weekend Rewind....

Weekend Rewind......

Let me first begin by warning all to be careful--my computer was hacked and just returned to a few days ago--UGH!!

Finished up Bible School this past week. We had as many as 130 kids.  Our Children's Director did a wonderful job organizing this event.  All (children and adults) enjoyed this fun week, and all learned about God in a fun way.  I wasn't able to attend the full week and I missed this.
 Daughter came and enjoyed one night with Bible School.

Great fun-filled water activities Last night was the closing program.  Parents and Grandparents came and were all smiles as they watched their son/grandson or daughter/granddaughter share the lesson he/she learned. At the end of the program all kids who were there won a prize.  I like the idea of ALL kids winning.  
Tuesday, was the first day of our Summer Library Program-theme 'Paws to Read.'  I took 'little man.'  He is still in the preschool program-starts kindergarten in the fall.  I could…

Weekend Rewind

Weekend Rewind...

Tuesday was the last day for teachers in my school district.  Yeah!!  Now for some much deep needed house cleaning!  I planned (notice planned) on starting on Wednesday, but decided to just relax for a bit.  Thursday I just picked up here and there, and Friday was you know Friday and I didn't want to. Saturday rolled around and decided it was too pretty to do any house chores.  Here it is Monday and I am going to begin!!

Tuesday evening was a little get together pizza celebration for T-Ball.  The pizza party was going to be at our local park-nice picnic shelters and playgrounds.  Great place to have a pizza party and let the kids play.  A few minutes before the pizza celebration began, the sky turned to black and the wind began blowing.  I knew a storm was coming-soon!  The pizza party was moved to our coffee shop.  Not many players or parents got caught in storm-:) didn't want a bunch of wet players and parents.  The pizza was eaten, trophies were handed ou…

Last weekend/week was a busy one and wasn't able to blog about my weekend or week.  
Last weekend, grandson, graduated from his pre-school Sunday School Class.  He will be entering kindergarten in the fall.

He also began going to Children's Church-leaving Wee Worship (sniff, sniff).  After church, we headed to buy him a new bicycle.

We rode around the block and just had to stop at the library.  He mentioned that I had not signed him up for the Summer Reading Program.

I said I would and just now realized as I was writing this blog, that I hadn't.  I will definitely add this to my to do list.

Friday, June 6th was the last day for students in my district.  This past week, I began carrying in boxes to pack up my room for the summer.

It is a chore packing up my room.  Every year I vow not to bring so much to school, but every year I do!
The ending of school is full of mixed emotions for me…
