Time goes so quickly!!

I can't believe how fast the past 2 months have gone. All winter long I pray for the days to hurry up and pass so that spring and summer can arrive. Then it hits and I remember how busy these days can get!! I have definitely found that I work better under pressure. If I don't have some sort of project going on then I get really lazy and let everything slide. Lately I have had a few too many projects though! The boys finished school and then Vacation Bible School started which I am helping in everyday. Our church has a huge program with almost 700 kids! It's great but man is it a lot of work. Especially getting everyone out the door by 8:00 every morning! Like clock work my little guy got sick with that hand foot and mouth virus. No fun! I feel so bad for him because he has those awful sores all over his feet and mouth. Luckily I will have some help with him tomorrow because I don't think the church nursery would appreciate him being there!

I have also been working on refinishing an old desk for the boys to color at. I sanded it down last week and have been trying to paint it in between all of the cotton wood blowing around and the constant rain!! i hope it comes out good in the end. We made a small bench for the kids to sit at and take their shoes on and off. I have been wanted to do that for the past 5 years! It's almost done and I will post some pics of the final outcome.
Also I am thrilled to have some family arriving tomorrow from Virginia. It will be a great 2 weeks with everyone together. That's all for now.....

Where did I go???

Well it's been a really long time since I have sat down here to post anything. I worked my tail off on that big toy order and got all 105 bags done a week earlier than I thought! Now I have no ambition to make any more for a while!!

We had a nice visit from our Canadian family for the Greek festival that was in town here. My kids really enjoyed going to that and spending time with their cousins. We wished you guys lived closer!

Let's see what else has been going on here.... Trying to find some sort of warm weather has been frustrating. You kind of never know what to wear because you add clothes in the morning and then take some off mid day and then put them back on later! Oh and I can't forget spending the evening in our local Urgent Care with my 7 year old. We thought we would do something fun and take the boys out on a bike trail near our house and he took a nasty fall. Cut up his arms pretty bad and had to get some stitches. He already popped a stitch open today too, ugh! BOYS!!

My middle son "graduated" from preschool which was very cute. I can't believe that he is going on the bus in a few months and off to kindergarten.

Things have been busy but over all very good! Only one more full week of school and then I feel like summer can actually begin.

Well I can hear the youngest child dumping lot's of toys out in the next room so that is my clue to wrap this post up. :D
