Good morning all! I have to enjoy my busy life for now. In a few short years, my kids will be off to college and my house....EMPTY and QUIET!

DD12 got home. She loved every single second of camp. She said it was very moving and she can't wait to go back to this same camp next summer! They did tubing, zip lininng, tons of games and songs! She was in HEAVEN!

DS15 is at debate camp. He got all checked in at KU. HE is loving the freedom of "dorm life". He tends to be very much an introvert. So this is pushing him out of his comfort zone. I really hope he finds a friend or 2 there. Something to show him, he can get out and be with peers more often! I worry so much about him.

Should be a quiet week at the house. DS15 gone and then every night we have VBS this week. DH and I are in charge of snacks. It is always fun to do and hang with the kids. DD12 is a helper. SHe loves doing that too!

Now if I just didn't have to work all day todday!

THe shower was awesome. She is such a nice, cute girl! I guess not girl, woman! Only 5 weeks till the wedding! How exciting!

Yay for a good Sunday DD! I so know what you mean. Having to work for a living sure gets in the way of life, huh?

I hope DS manages to have a positive experience. I know from experience how tough it can be to be introverted. Or shy as it was called when I was a kid. I'm still shy/introverted, but I've learned how to deal with it I guess. I can fake my way through most social situations, even if I'd really rather be home curled up with a book! And sometimes I even surprise myself and really enjoy interacting with new people. Sometimes.....

Carol, my DH was an introvert as well. That's just not me. I tend to be outgoing and prefer to talk to people instead of just sit there looking at them. I have told DS15, try to move a little out of your comfort zone....not sure it is working. I asked, so how do you like your roommate. He said, well he's fine, but I haven't really talked to him.

HUH??? He said, well he asked me to turn off the light as I walked by, so I said, SURE. He also asked DS15 do you mind if I turn on my fan? DS15 said, that's fine.

THat has been their conversations! REALLY??? I said, why not tell him your name and that live here in Lawrence. Not sure he will do that.

It's Tuesday! I was able to get up and walk today. We did 3 miles.

Last week I was able to do 2 miles - 4 times over the week. Trying to ease back into it slowly. I didn't get my weight routine in this morning, so I will have to do it after work.

It's a down day! Hoping to keep it under 600c.

DD Tuesday....sigh. I'm up for it, but not overly enthusiastic. At least I know you're in it with me. We can do this!

How did VBS go last night?

VBS went well last night. The snack was actually healthy. Strawberries/oranges covered by yogurt topped with a cherry! It was a hit for almost all of them.

Tonight, not so healthy, it is sugar cookies iced and decorated like a face. The kids all get to decorate their own cookies! I know they will love all that too!

Hope your DD is going great. Good job on getting back to walking. I am trying to find more time for walking as lately all I can manage is 20 min. Today was better as I got in 35 min.

You are right, I did. I started 2 weeks ago. I started at 2 miles just 3 times that week, then I went for 4 times last week!

SLow and sure! YOu are right

It is FRIDAY - EVE!!! Yeah! Only 2 more nights of VBS. I love it, but man, it is so tiring. Get home from work, throw something in a bowl for dinner....leave within a few minutes for church and return home around 9:00! I do love it though.

Good day yesterday. The kids loved the snack at VBS. It was popcorn and fruit snacks. We had clear gloves and in the finger tips was the fruit snack and then we filled the rest with popcorn! I wasn't sure what they would think, but they all LOVED IT! TOnights snack won't be so popular. It is buttered bread with a cinnamon/sugar cross on it. I am guessing they will turn their noses up at buttered bread! Time will tell. Thankfully I have enough fruit snacks that each will get a bag of those too!

DD12 is cleaning the house today! YEAH! It costs me $40, she does most everything except the bathrooms! It's nice to go to work and come home to clean floors and everything dusted! LOVE THAT!

DS15 is doing really well at debate camp. He is making friends and working really hard on the research and such. I think he is working with a lot of other people, which is just what we were hoping for! He seems to be doing well. Not sure he is sleeping much at all....but that's his deal!

VBS~What fun! I would love your buttered bread and cinnamon and sugar! That was such a treat for us growing up, cinnamon toast. I make it for DH when he wants something sweet and I have to improvise.

I'm looking forward to the weekend too!

You've come up with some really cute and creative snack ideas. Buttered bread sounds pretty good to me too, Blonde!

Send that little house cleaner over my way when she gets finished, will ya? I'm so glad DS is doing well and meeting new people. Very encouraging!

I have a thing about cinnamon--the only thing I like it on is BUTTERED BREAD w/sugar.

Carol, I didn't come up with the ideas....it's all part of a book! DH and I just have to line up the volunteers to bring what is needed and then we have to help the kids make it and serve it...oh and then clean up!

Well maybe the kids will like it. It isn't toast, but buttered bread! If nothing else, they will love the bag of fruit snacks!
