I know my blog has been slow and dull lately. I guess I am not in the mode of posting much of what is going on in my life. I am not sure why. If you follow my twitter/facebook updates in my sidebar you can kind of see what I’ve been up to.
I am going to try to summarize a bit.
School ended May twenty-something. Shortly thereafter my mother-in-law came out for a long weekend visit which we all really enjoyed. We will be visiting them in Illinois later this summer. Right after she left my dear friend Lisa and her family stopped in for a visit on the way to Illinois. It was wonderful to have them all with us and get to know her kids better. She lived here when we moved here but moved away 6+ years ago. I’ve known her since high school and I consider her to be my best friend in the world even though we rarely see each other and don’t even talk too often. It is one of those soul-connection things.
We had a week at home and then I sent the girls to vacation bible school in the mornings for a week. In between we have been swimming and just hanging out.
We just returned from a long trip to South Carolina, via North Carolina. The girls and I flew to NC and spent the night at Tammy‘s house (Julia’s former babysitter/substitute mother/all around lifesaver). I left Julia there and drove with Lauren to Hilton Head Island, to visit my parents. Lauren and my mom and I did the beach and pool thing and I just enjoyed visiting with my parents and hanging around the house. On Friday morning, Luke joined us and on Saturday (the fourth) Julia and Brady (Tammy’s daughter) were delivered to us after a joint lunch at the Salty Dog Cafe.
We went for an afternoon swim and then walked to Harbor Town to sit on the 18th fairway of the golf course and watch fireworks. We had fun watching all the crabs at the shore while we waited for the fireworks to start (the 18th hole is right on the sound). The fireworks were spectacular!
We spent the next several days going to the beach and pool and relaxing whenever we weren’t swimming!
We headed back to NC to deliver Brady and then flew back home on Friday.
That brings me up to date to yesterday when we attended a choir breakfast picnic (where Lauren fell into the pond) and had guest for dinner last night.
Today is Luke’s birthday and we have been to church and will be having friends for dinner later. I need to make Luke’s cake (chocolate/chocolate) and do some cleaning and laundry. Luke is playing Tiger Woods 2010 which I got him for father’s day (which by the way we semi-ignored as it isn’t the easiest day around here).
