Summer is on its way!

Charity showing off her beautiful sunglasses - while eating chocolate of course!
He's so cool!
Hanging out at the Children's Museum with Grandma and Uncle Greg.

What a gorgeous day! Sunny and 80 degrees. I laid the kids down for an early nap so they will be able to get the most out of the afternoon. Plus I was really ready for some peace and quiet. Charity is not cooperating very well. She's exhausted but all wound up and isn't going to give in without fighting me for a half hour or so. I love my children but they can mentally exhaust me like no on else! There's nothing I can put my finger on today but they are just pressing my buttons. Another reason I'm so thankful for the beautiful weather. They will spend the majority of their time between nap and bed tonight playing outside - whether they want to or not! Eric finished another final today. 3 down, 3 to go. This one only took him about 1/2 an hour. They are scheduled for 3 hours and it seems like most of them take a majority of that time. His next exam is at 8:30 in the morning and I'm sure Eric is thankful for the extra study time that a short exam gives him. The kids and I spent the morning as we usually do - at school and at the Y. Charity had swim lessons so Michael spent the late morning hanging out with the other morning Kindergartners at the Y. I spent the lesson time reading a cooking magazine and wishing my pantry, fridge, and freezer would automatically stock themselves. I should go grocery shopping tonight but I think maybe I'll put it off for another day. The kids need the play time and I don't really want to go anyway.

Hey Wank,
I don't know how to contact you and I was hoping that you were keeping your blog up. I have enjoyed reading about your adventures and what's on your mind. But you have not updated in over a month. I hope the move went well. Please call, send a note, email, letter, anything so I know all is well. Thinking about maybe making a road trip too!
