Back from camp

Well we are back from camp. I love camp but it was soooo good to get home. Now I have a huge pile of laundry and a messy house to get cleaned up. I did get everything unpacked and put away last night.Thank goodness. After getting up at 6:30 every morning to get a shower I just wanted to sleep in this morning. Konnor decided he wanted to get up before eight, so I made him get in bed with me for a few more minutes but I got up a few minuets after eight and since we had only a tiny bit of milk( which Konnor had to have on cereal) I made some pancakes and got busy on the laundry. I had one laundry basket that Randy made early in the week and 3 trash bags full from camp.Have I ever mentioned that I hate my washing machine? It does a good job but only holds 7 bath towels at one time.( yes I counted once) So I think I will be doing laundry for a while. I would love to have one of those big washers that does like 16 towels at once.I could knock out this pile in no time!! Oh well. Back to camp. It was a great camp with great weather, great preaching,and great company. It feels funny when someone comes up to you and says" I feel like I know you from reading your blog" and can name all your kids names. Cool though. Konnor did great with going to the potty. He only had a couple of accidents all week and he actually stayed dry all night once. ( the first time ever). All of the hard work on the cabin payed off. It was so cozy and we all loved it!!! I have a few pictures but I will have to figure out how to get them all on one post. We had a big campfire on Saturday night by our cabin and it was a big hit with all of our friends from Franklin church and a few from other churches. It was chilly out and it was nice to sit around a fire and roast hot dogs and eat smores. Well I cant wait to read everyone's blog about camp. Now I have a pile of laundry to do. Till next time......

Happy Fathers Day

First of all I want to say Happy Fathers Day to my wonderful husband Randy. He is a great daddy and we love him VERY much!!!He takes care of us so much and works hard so I don't have to go out and work. Speaking of which he has worked so hard on this cabin at camp and he wont even be at camp all week to enjoy it. I love and appreciate him so much!!!

Tomorrow it is off to camp for the week. I can't wait!!! Our new cabin is so nice. The only thing that need to be done yet is the drywall being finished and the painting. I even have blinds up on the windows. All of the beds are made and ready for us to get there. Hopefully I will be able to sit and chat with alot of my blogging friends this week. I plan on doing alot of sitting and relaxing!!! Well I hope everyone has a good week and I will update you on the week when I get back.

The big 3-0

Well I have finally hit the big 30 week mark. Its all down hill from here. Or is it? I have church camp and vacation to accomplish yet. Hopefully all goes well. We are going on vacation 5 and 1/2 weeks from my due date to Mackinaw Island in Michigan.Actually we will go to the island only one day. There are no motorized vehicles on the island so I will either walk, ride a bike, ride a horse, or in a horse and carriage that will cost a fortune. Hmmm I don't know which one I will choose. LOL Have you ever seen a 35 week pregnant person ride a bike? I might try it. That's enough of that!! We are almost ready for camp. There are only 6 days left and 1 more weekend to get the cabin ready. Just let me say the cabin will not be finished but it will be livable. There will be beds and carpet on the floor and a couch to sit on. The wall have drywall but they aren't finished yet but I don't care. As long as I have a bed and an air conditioner I will be fine. Well I just wanted to update my blog since I got yelled at from someone( I wont name them) I might post more tomorrow. I have to babysit and the kids will be swimming all day so I might actually have some pictures to post also. I feel like I have been really boring lately. Has everyone given up on me? Oh well I guess I can talk to myself. Tootles....

I can't believe that it has been almost a week since I last posted. I haven't done much so I don't really have an excuse. My sweet boy has returned and everyone is feeling good this week. Knock on wood. We have finished the first week of no school. I have heard alot of" I'm bored" and "I don't have anything to do" and " will you take us swimming?" They don't understand that every time I pull out of the garage my pocket book gets skinnier. I did take them to the library to sign up for the summer reading program. So they sit around all day and read. We did go to the park yesterday and they played at the water part. They had a good time since it was 90 degrees outside. Camp is in one week. YAY We are all looking forward to it. Hopefully the cabin is in livable condition by then. Randy is really feeling the pressure now. Anyone who is available to help next Saturday would be made very welcome!!!! He is going up again tonight and will be there all day tomorrow. Then again next week. Oh for a nice quiet weekend at home. I will appreciate it all at camp. Now I need to make a list of what to take to camp. It seems like I end up taking everything but the kitchen sink. Well I really need to get moving today. I worked last night and I am moving very slowly today. One nice thing about the kids being out of school is that I don't have to get up early on Friday mornings. Kaitlyn takes care of things till I wake up. This morning she made pancakes for everyone.They were really good! She loves to cook. Well hopefully I will have some picture to post next time. Till then Off to do some laundry and put a little boy to bed for his nap.

Help I have a problem. I have lost my sweet, loving, little boy. He has been replaced with a little boy that I don't know. Don't get me wrong. he has his sweet moments but overall he has gone from sweet to monster in a couple days time. I don't know what to do!!!! He has been sick before and this has never happened. He throws fits and screams, he won't share, The other day he refused to get out of bed and come downstairs. He goes to bed mad and gets ups mad. He wont eat anything but junk and chocolate milk. You have to tiptoe around him and give him everything he wants to keep peace and I am not that kind of mom.( Sorry to say) He is so stubborn, you could spank( yes I said the word) him all day and he still wouldn't do what you wanted him to do. Before he got sick all I had to say was" Konnor I told you to pick up your cars" and he would say" sorry mommy sorry" and do it. I want my sweet boy back can anybody help me find him?PLEASE
Tomorrow is Sunday maybe we can all catch up on a little rest. Sounds good to me!!!!!!
