Day began by volunteering at Bountiful Basket. There were a lot of volunteers today so we had all the baskets put together within 20 minutes. Here's the haul for today minus some red onions I spread out in five other baskets as I already had 4 at home and we don't use them much with food sensitivities.

Afterwards we went to McD's for breakfast and then home so Maegann could milk the goats and feed her new calf. This little cutie arrived yesterday and he is three days old.

She plans to bottle feed him and then eventually sell him.

Wasn't long and Tim and the kids were off to pick up my dad for their Saturday morning outing. I headed to the grocery store for a few items and then came home and cleaned out the frig. I had planned to just reorganize, but got sucked into giving it a thorough cleaning. Looks nice!

Next on the day's schedule was the final swim class. Both kids passed their levels!

Had about 90 min. home before Maegann and I headed off for our hair trims and then we had about 45 min. before we left home again for playgroup. It was a little smaller group this month due to vacations, but the kids had a blast.

Got home about 8:30, had a snack and then watched an episode of Andy Griffith. Now they are heading to bed.

Tomorrow... worship and... NOTHING! Whoo Hoo! I do plan to make a bowl of guacamole as I am finding that replaces things such as mayo, butter and sour cream nicely.

Gym Time: Hasn't been happening with all the doctor appointments that are taking 2 hours at a time. I have been kicking around the idea of canceling my membership at Anytime Fitness in order to get a family membership at the local Rec Center. It would only be about $23 more a month and would be a way to get the kids more physical ed during the year. Figure we could plan on going 2-3 afternoons a week after our schoolwork was completed. I could swim laps! I want to look into things and see how they would work adding Kenzie into the mix for Isaac's physical therapy and also what things the kids might be able to do without me right there. The cardio machines look over the pool and the gym area so just curious. Down is a 15-20 min. drive instead a 5-10 min. drive. Would I go by myself as easily? Must really think this through and do some research.

    It sounds like there are both good and bad things about both memberships. You will make the best decision though! Enjoy your quiet Sunday!

    That's a big decision - somewhere you can go work out by yourself and have "me" time that is uninterrupted or the Rec Center with all that it offers for everyone. Both have great pros and cons. In the end, I suppose it comes down to whether you think you will end up in the same situation time-wise if you switch to the Rec Center. I'm guessing you'll switch. You are such a great mom and so involved with your kids. It's an opportunity to let them see the example you are setting for them that our bodies are worth the time and effort to take care of them!

    The Bountiful Basket stuff looks awesome! I'm always tempted to sign up but my work schedule stinks for pick up. I was sad when they cancelled the drop off in Parma! I just keep thinking that someday it will happen! Thanks for volunteering for such a great program. You are amazing!

    I think it sounds like a wonderful plan - you could take the kids with you and you all could do something!

    Think about the gym stuff carefully. It might be something good for the children to get accustomed to being part of life

    I traded my kale this week for someone's bananas! Made me very happy.

    Hope your Sunday is beautiful, relaxing and full of joy!

    Sounds like a good day! Enjoy your day tomorrow. Good luck with the gym memberships. There are pros and cons either way although being able to take the kids with you is a big pro. I will pray that you find your decision soon.
