I think I'm stranded on the streets of Vegas... no idea where we're staying! Christie...the streets of Vegas are scary by myself at dark!

The family is headed to CO to meet with dh's brother and his kids for a short camping trip. He's planning to spend a little more time than expected as his mom's not been doing well health-wise.

The mission VBS sounds awesome! Our VBS starts tonight at church and I'm heading over to get the story room decorated so it will be a fun stop in their evening.

Where is the rest of your family off to Janet?

I have a crazy week. I am volunteering at the mission this week for VBS. I haven't been there since I resinged from the board a few months ago. I am looking forward to seeing all the children! There is also a new director and she has ask me to come back on the board. I agreed to pray about it...I am not finding this to be an easy decison. After being there a few days this week I hope to find my answer.

Cabbage Patch doll clothes are much easier that many other types in my opinion since they are a little larger. I got everything cut out so now will need time to sew. I hope to go to the fabric store next week once the rest of the family is gone for 5-6 days and find some Christmas fabric and lace to make some "surprise" outfits for Maegann's dolls. We'll see!

We had fun this afternoon at the County Fair. Most pleasant time we've had there as the crowds were non-existent. Just a good flow of people instead.

We played Catan again tonight and I finally won! Whoo Hoo!

Not that I have girls to make dolls clothes, but when I cross stitch, L is always intrigued so I have let him try.

I did well on our challenge yesterday and trying again today, so far only Friday was a bust. Trying to get lots down around the house today so I'd better go.

Janet -- I tried making doll clothes for my girls when they were young - you are so much more patient than I was. I haven't used my sewing machine in years, I miss it!! I was checking out leadership boards this morning and some people have 840 to 940 fitness minutes already! What the heck?? Off to the airport to catch my flight in Vegas - see you all there!!

I had a really busy day but it was good! I am still doing really well on the 35 day challenge. I lost track of how many days now? 4 or 5? Anyway my run went really well this morning. I had just enough of a snack at the babyshower to not be rude. I was able to pass on the cake. I had one of my best friends for dinner tonight. Gary grilled burgers and we had fresh corn on the cob. OK i did have 2 glasses of wine. :) Now I am drinking a lot of water!

Janet did you have a program that you followed for the 90 day bible reading? and How many doll outfits are you cutting out?

I haven't cross stiched for several years. I am looking forward to pictures.

See you all in Vegas

Thought I'd stop in while I have a chance and before I go offline until tomorrow evening.

I spent most of the day either doing laundry, sweeping, baking (for the bbq tonight) or cutting out doll clothes. We all went to visit my dad after lunch and ran a couple quick errands. Now we're just waiting for the hubby to finish his barnyard chores and take a shower so we can head out for the party. The party is for our 90 Day Bible reading class to celebrate our accomplishment.

Tomorrow after lunch we're heading to the county fair. Just what I love... heat and thousands of people. UGH!

Off to catch my flight to Vegas. See you there!

Christina - I'm hoping you've got that run in by now.

I didn't do so well yesterday on our 35 day challenge, but I'm back on the healthy eating express today. I've also made my pattern and have started my cross stitch for my honorary niece. Most of this day has been spent using a carpet cleaner on my carpet. I ache all over and will probably be worse tomorrow.

Have a great weekend all! See you in Vegas!

Sounds good to me! See you on Newbury Street!

Off to our last day of swim lessons shortly and I'm sure little boy passed since he overcame his fear of the deeper water. On to Level One next year!

It's supposed to be 100 again so I'm thinking hibernating sounds good. I will work on doll clothes today since I got a lot of little things done last night. My list really shrunk!

Tina, wow sharks!

I just got in from taking Ms Kitty back to the vet. We had her spayed 2 months ago and she still has infection. Poor thing she was a stray, half starved to death when she showed up here last year. Benj pulled on my heart strings and we bought a litter box when it got really coldand snowy this past winter.
Off to finish up dinner and go to zumba.

Hey girls..

I'm sorry I've been missing, I actually forgot about this thread, imagine, not being here when Boston IS here for me!! Noticed we've been whale watching. Here's some real Boston news..there have been numerous, numerous great white shark sitings around the Massachusetts coastline in the past couple of weeks.. Yesterday they saw 3 or 4, very close to shore around Chatham, which is part of Cape Cod. So keep your eyes open for whales, and SHARKS!!!

It's not a diet, it's not exercise, it's a way of life. Period.

We've had a good day here. Swimming lessons are done other than "fun day" tomorrow with all the sprays and things going for them to play in. Will take pictures and post some tomorrow. Then I did some reading with Isaac before lunch. After lunch we worked some more on our Antartica study. Now I'm checking email and will head to the grocery store after I drop them off at grandma's.

I started cutting out more patterns and need to go through my material to cut out some clothes for the Cabbage Patch dolls. Have the sewing table set up in the entryway so I can work on them as I have time.

Boston.... loving the whale watching today!!! Can you believe we only have one more day here before we pack up and head to Las Vegas on Saturday? Wow! Can't wait to see where Christie has us staying! (I'm already working on September's destination and wish I could go there for real!) Anyway...tomorrow we will do more shopping. This time on Newbury Street. www.newbury-st.com/ And for dinner we will meet at Smith & Wollensky (at the hotel) since we haven't been there yet. www.smithandwollensky.com/locations/

LOL I have recovered my sanity! I got them fed and dressed and we went to walmart and bought all the school supplies. I always dread that but it gets them excited and now it is out of the way.

I had a great day 3 and now doing well on day 4! This challenge is just what I needed to get back on track! I am looking forward to moving my weight down a bit on Saturday!!! (optimistic)

I can do this. I will do this. Becoming the Christie I want to be.

Another full day here again. Other than the usual I chose to get the Easter outfits cut out for little girls Cabbage Patch dolls. She requested them for the two new dolls she purchased so that they all have matching outfits. Tonight after dinner they took me to Dairy Queen to celebrate my completion of reading the Bible in 90 days. We all had small sundaes. I'll take a few days off and then I'll begin reading through my Chronological Bible but won't do it quite so quickly. I'm thinking 180 days this time.

Boston.... Tomorrow we're going to take the ferry to Princetown for some dining, shopping, beach time and whale watching!

I think I'll take one of the canoes out for a paddle. It's been a few years (before boys) but I think I should be able to manage.

Boys are being their usual selves. I survived and had a healthy day 2 of the challenge. I spent part of the day searching through patterns to see what I want to make as a wedding present. I'm not completely happy with any of them so I will try to quickly take the pieces that I like and design my own. Wish me luck.

Hi everyone! Kayaking sounds like fun.

We'll be heading out tomorrow, and I am not looking forward to the drive. Last year, Miss A decided to not take a nap the entire drive. It was not pretty.

On a different note, I exercised on the wii for an hour yesterday...woo-hoo!

Hope all those little boys are settling now. My biggest challenge with my son is to get him to stick with something - he seems to hate anything scheduled. Most of the time he is good abouit going to karate.
I am tired - just got home from golfing. So for the day 1 challenge I got my excercise and tracking in emoticon

Janet I will be your canoe buddy. I checked it out first, no white water rapids! last time I did those I just about drowned and was black and blue for weeks! As I read about you making the doll clothes I really am hoping for a granddaughter in my future! I always wanted a girl. I did teach Joe how to crochet a couple years ago he made Mollie a scarf for Christmas the first year they were dating.

I had a quiet day. It was nice! I also had a HEALTHY #2 challenge day! ate well and had 2 hour exercise.

Thankfully little boy has done very well today. He's actually pleasant to be around! emoticon

This afternoon we ran a couple errands and now the kids are watching a video while I check email. I've got dinner in the crockpot and think I'll start figuring out what I have for easter fabric to make a couple more outfits for the Cabbage Patch family. Maegann purchased a boy and another newborn and I was informed they also needed Easter clothes. I am going to try and make them all outfits for Christmas without her knowing. That in itself is a trick as a homeschooling family! LOL

Boston..... Looking forward to the ballet and dinner tonight with everyone! Tomorrow we'll do some shopping and other fun things as we're heading to Kendall Square. kendallsquare.org/ Just looked like a fun place to wander around and I'm actually thinking I might try my hand at the canoe or kayak rentals...never done that before!

Christina - I can totally relate about July and Janet - I can totally relate about little boys.

I did well on the 35 (I actually have 40 days) challenge yesterday and so far so good for today (other than I haven't exercised yet). I had hoped to get 100 minutes of exercise yesterday, but only made it to 55 (not counting vacuuming, including the ceiling - sounds weird I know). DH had a dental appointment (that got cancelled after he got there) and is home early. I trying to talk him into going biking, despite the 90+ degree weather.

Off to swimming. No big plans today other than my Bible reading, sweeping and taking little girl to piano. Should have time to dust the treadmill off today!

Good Morning Mommies! I am starting off day 2 right. I needed to get a streak going for motivation. The Month of July I basically stayed the same weight. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Janet I sympathize with you! I have one of those boys too. He is so good at it he can look me in the eye an convince me he is telling the truth, until the evidence convicts him! It worries me for his future. He is already 11. Praying that you have a pleasant day!

What a day with little boy. He began telling "stories" aka lies first thing in the morning and it did not stop until his head hit the pillow tonight. Not sure why he chose to try this again because it never gains him a thing other than some well placed swats. Praying this does not happen all day tomorrow!

I got the finances updated this evening and the grocery shopping accomplished. Yeah!

I got the consultation visit scheduled with the oral surgeon on August 2nd. With any luck she can work the loose tooth out before the surgery! The dentist did get it looser last week.

Day 1 emoticon of the challenge went well! I had 60 min of exercise, and I have room in my calories for a snack!
Cyndera cross stich is a great idea. I am crocheting a baby blanket. Anything to keep the hands busy!
Janet a great big congrats to you for taking time away on Sundays!
Dorothy the cubscout camp sounds fun! None of our boys were ever in boyscouts. All our camping is done with family and friends. I completely agree they grow up too fast! our baby is turning 4 next month

Janet - the ballet sounds fun!
Christina - I think I had more fun than my son at Cub Scout Camp. I worked in the life skills area - on Thuresday we made survival kits, Friday we had a guy show them how to carve with bars of soap and on Saturday we had a Search and Rescue group. The boys loved seeing the dogs. I also helped a couple of times in the kitchen and somehow got put in charge of the coffee. We had rain everyday - but it would be a down pur and than that would be it. All in all it was a good time - I will miss it next year - it was my third year thre helping - next yer Michael will be a Boy Scout - I don't think mom is allowed to go to boy scout camp. They grow up way to fast!!

Last weeks defeat is a gateway to many victories.

Lord - grant me the Serenity to accept the things I can not change, the Courage to change the things I can, and the Wisdom to know the difference.

This morning was swimming (last week) and then a friend of Maegann's from our homeschool group was over for a couple of hours. Little boy is choosing to try "lies" again and it hasn't been working for him very well today. I was able to get two loads of laundry done, some VBS stuff put together for my second helper and the dried bread is now "crumbed" and in the freezer.

I was so thankful yesterday at the VBS meeting to learn I had a second helper...and not just a body...a fabulous drama guy! I had been praying for that and God answered! I can now give the skits and puppets to those two and focus on the actual Bible stories and memory verses. Yeah!!! One more week until it begins.

We enjoyed our first "no work" day yesterday. It was a little too hot for a bike ride but the greenbelt I located in town was nice. I think we got about 4 miles in which wasn't bad with both kids and 103 degree heat. Afterwards we went and visited dad and then after supper we played Settlement of Catan. Very fun game. We have decided our no computer time will be 8 p.m. Saturday to 8 p.m. Sunday. That will be helpful to me so I can get a few things done after the kids are in bed on Sunday nights. This Sunday we're going to the county fair.

Boston.... Tomorrow we're going to enjoy the talents of the Boston Ballet and other special guests at the Waterfront Performing Arts Series at Christopher Columbus Park. www.cityofboston.gov/arts It isn't until 6 p.m. so take the day to rest and just enjoy yourselves. We've got several days of shopping coming up to get those last minute things before we leaved for Las Vegas. I was also surprised to learn where we were going next! LOL I'm hoping we get to stay at the Ballagio or the Venetian. My two favorites from my last trip there.

Count me in on the 35 day challenge. I'm ready, set, go. I'm going to do stay in sparkpeople calories, not drink any alcohol (going to be tough in Vegas), and exercise faithfully. All things I haven't been doing too well over the last month. I also will be here more often. Oh, and I think I am going to tie up my hands (from eating) by doing making a cross stitch wedding present.

The challenge will be informal...we will post here...but it will be good for me too! I will track my food here later, I did write it down in my WW journal.

I weighted in last night and was 145 lbs. This morning...144 lbs...not good...hate when I gain weight after all that hard work...but back into the groove again today.

I did exercise 25 minutes until Nason woke up. I will get up earlier tomorrow morning.

I am eating well so far.

A challenge will be great for me! I will track my food today and get in 60 min exercise.
My boys were up around 7:00 this morning. UGH I'm trying not to be grouchy but I like to have atleast 30 mins before the day starts.

Christina...35 days brings me to my first day of school. I just weighted myself...at night...with a full tummy and if I gained 5 lbs this week..I will be so mad!

I am planning on getting up at 5:15 am to work out. Wish me luck! My son usually gets up at 7 am....but can get up earlier too...perhaps I will get up for 5:30 am. If he does wake up early, I will have to work out at night.

35 days to a new me! (and you!)

After one week, my inlaws have left and gone home! Tomorrow, I have 35 days to work and am going to be "almost perfect" with my diet (meaning...on my weight watcher points) and am going to exercise consistently.

Ok...girls...who is with me? Who wants to join the "35 days to a better you challenge?". Just tell us right here how you are doing!

And...don't forget we are heading to Vegas next month!

Janet that is a great new habit! We usually have family days here on Sunday. Today all my kids will be home with their girls. It will be great! Mollie and I finished shopping for her new work clothes yesterday. Today we have to hem some pants.

We all got pour backpacks yesterday! So we will be off on our first backpack adventure the first weekend in Aug. The boys are really excited.

Have a great day!

Busy day here! Mowed the yard, cut up bread to dehydrate, helped rearrange dd's room, cleaned up ds's room, got my Bible reading done and went for another walk with dd. Only with one dog this time. Now it is time for supper. Whew!

We are starting a new "habit" tomorrow so I thought I'd better put our Monday Boston adventure up tonight because I may not be online. Our goal is "no work" in honor of the Sabbath... also translated into my hubby needs to learn to rest and have fun so we all have to do this. One of the things we have to do for that is not be on the computers and I'm not sure if it is all day Sunday or 6-6 beginning on Saturday.

So..... we are going to continue enjoying the Foxwoods Resort Casino on Sunday and then Monday afternoon (we have to have some rest) we will go tour the Old Statehouse Museum. www.bostonhistory.org/ Maybe dinner at one of the other restaurants at the hotel too.

Janet that sounds so cute! I can barely hold this one puppy at the park! We haven't been lately it is still too hot.

I can only hope that in the next couple years Mollie will be my DIL. They are still young though.

We are headed to Bass Pro Shop to buy my backpack today. Hubby is very serious about starting this real life adventure. My biggest concern is the BEARS!
I really don't want to be eaten by a bear.

MB7, glad you had fun with your daughter! Janet, I bet you gals were adorable out walking with your "babies". I love it when Abigail has to take a doll or stuffed animal somewhere and she makes the old man hold one of it's hands and she the other. He never says no.....she has him sooo wrapped.

The casino sounds like a blast! If I win big, I'm heading back to Alaska!

Forgot to post our weekend fun in Boston! We're heading to Foxwoods Casino. Grab your overnight bag in the morning and let's go! www.foxwoods.casinocity.com

Took a walk with little girl tonight to the park. Her with the stroller and Cabbage Patch dolls...me with the two bassets. Their first double leash walk and they did pretty well.

Tomorrow morning the lawn awaits me!

The Old Boston Pub Crawl looks great! I loved the picture of the big barrel...Give Us Beer Balance the Budget.

I ended up having a great day yesterday. I couldn't love Mollie more if she were my own daughter. She is simply amazing. She is only 18, but has this incredible wisdom. We did find pants and shoes, but still have to shop this weekend for shirts.

The old man has to go the "sleep" route whenever he has anything done. I've taken Miss A to the dentist with me since she was born. Partially so she won't build up a fear and partially because I want to show her off (haha). The old man had terrible experiences at the dentist as a child....his parents did whatever was the cheapest, not exactly what was the kindest. At any rate, I think you are wise for going the "sleep" route with Maegann...make it as pleasant as possible.

I'm looking forward to the Pub today. I think we all need a cold one after this week!

Lucky you....no drama queen! I spoke with the pediatric dentist this afternoon late and they said they would prescribe Valium for her to take prior to going. Another roadblock. Maegann will not take pills yet and this does not come in liquid form. We have decided that for $150 more we will go with the oral surgeon and just be done with it. I'll get the referral from the orthodontist next week as his office is closed until Tuesday. We've talked with her openly about both options and she even told me that the "sleep" sounds a lot better.

Tim took the kids for a bike ride. I opted to stay home this time as I needed to finish my Bible reading and honestly just needed some quiet time alone.

This afternoon I helped Maegann make "Fairy Fudge" which it turns out is a great solution to that yucky tasting Marzipan for cake decorating! This is very heavy and chewy but tastes sweet. Now I don't have to avoid those decorations for birthday cakes! Whoo Hoo!

Also helped the hubby get 12 trays of apples ready for the dehydrator. He bought a new slicer (like a deli uses only smaller) and an apple corer so he's been a mad man this week over dehydrated apples! LOL

Hannah was very aware what was going on when she had the gas at the dentist. She was a totally different (no screaming drama queen) child. Even gave me 2 thumbs up from the chair. I wish we had gone that route sooner.

For those of you that use a pediatric dentist... when they "give her the gas" is she still capable of caring what is going on? If so, I'm just going to skip right to the oral surgeon.

Isaac has been a pill this afternoon...just a nagging one. You know the kind.... dig and dig and then be nice and then dig and dig some more. Ugh!

Tomorrow in Boston we will be doing more sightseeing! I chose the Old Boston Pub Crawl. www.oldbostontours.com/old_boston_to

Christina, sorry to hear about your Dad. I hope it works out ok. Janet, I love my pediatric dentist too. I used to work for him in high school and college, so he still sees me. Abigail thinks it's funny when I try to squeeze into the little dental chair. I'm particularly fond of the stickers I get afterwards. emoticon

Christina~Not a great way to begin the day!!! Were they able to get your dad to the hospital? Have fun shopping!! We were referred to our general dentist by our pediatrician and we've been very pleased with him. So gentle and caring...even for us adults! Maegann loves him. Hopefully this pediatric dentist will be able to get those teeth out. I hate to put her through it but since the eye teeth are coming out in the wrong order and space is a little short, they will come back in twisted.

Oh well.... today swimming and no other plans!

I was awaken by the nursing home this morning. Dad's nurse wanted to send him to the hospital and he was refusing to go. His O2 was down in the low 60's all night. What a way to wake up! The day gets better though. I am taking Mollie shopping this afternoon. She starts a part-time job working for an eye Dr next week and needs white pants. We are both missing Joe who is still counciling church camp.

Janet~ We use a pediatric dentist for all the boys. He is great! the entire office is great and geared twords children. Even the 3 yo like to go. My heart breaks for her being so scared.

Unbelievable that GoldenGirl and I are neighbors! Look out KY!

Did not have success getting the two baby teeth pulled this afternoon. Maegann just could not relax enough and even though her teeth were totally numbed she would not sit still for any pressure the dentist applied to extract the loose one. No way would she tolerate the one with more roots! So the dentist called the procedure off. I phoned the Orthodontist to cancel her appointments and see what we needed to do about this. They are referring me to the pediatric dentist in the same complex and will use more sedation than our regular dentist was comfortable using. I believe part of it is that he did what he could, but feels someone else will have better luck at this point and she won't be afraid of him in the future at cleanings, etc. I'm okay with that. Not sure when but should hear from that office tomorrow after the doctors have talked about everything.

Hubby took both kids down to the park and I could have gone, but honestly I need the down time. I'm exhausted.

Boston.... Tomorrow we will continue our sightseeing by going to The Fairbanks House. www.fairbankshouse.org/

Oh my! I must have missed that last night! LOL

Will be heading out for the dentist in about an hour. Figure I'll give Maegann some Tylenol about 1:30 so that's in her system for an hour to help calm her a little. Praying that giggle gas works quickly! And being the scrapbooking mom that I am...I'm taking the camera along. Tomorrow morning before swimming lessons we'll get the spacers put in place. I was told those are the most painful as far as aches and pains so Tylenol is a must for a few days.

Isaac did great today for his teach at swimming. Yeah! He really is wanting to pass the class this year so I'm glad I threw the gauntlet down for him to strive towards.

I'm not sure when Loser will start again. Sept or Oct would be my guess though.

Yes, I had a hard time leaving my moose behind. In fact, I have one living with me in KY now. I hope the neighbors don't mind. I keep telling them it's a Great Dane with a thyroid problem.

So, when does the Biggest Loser start? I love that show so much!!!!! I'm sure if Bob ever met me, he would fall for me, much like the moose of Alaska. Mooooooooooo.....

Can someone bring me one of those margueritas please?

I'm just tired. No particular reason. Just tired. Kids will head for bed in about an hour and then it is me and the VCR. Glad to hear the Jillian show was good tonight.

Boston tomorrow.... more sightseeing! We're going to the Isabella Stuart Gardner Art Museum. www.gardnermuseum.org/ I couldn't believe it when I opened my Boston document that we are on the end of our time here! Seems like we just left Alaska! Cindy...is that why you're just now showing up in Boston? You stayed back for more moose watching didn't you?! emoticon

Little girl is starting to talk about the dentist appointment tomorrow so I know the reality and nerves are setting in.

Tonight's Jillian show was pretty good but I am looking forward TO THE NEW BIGGEST LOSER!! It is the one show I clear the schedule for. I don't have that DVR. Thats probably the only show I would use it for.

Hope your DS is in a better mood for dinner. Meatloaf sounds yummy!

Okay...I'm escaping to Boston as I just need time away! I swear...one little discipline moment with ds and he chooses to be on the edge with me the rest of the day. Tiring!!!! He's not winning though!

Heading to piano lessons with dd in about an hour. I've got the meatloaf and potatoes ready to throw in the oven when we leave. Looking forward to watching Jillian's "Losing It" after the kids are in bed. Supposed to be the last show. She only did 4-5 of them, but it is enough I think. How many families can she really go live with and follow within a few months inbetween "Biggest Loser" seasons?!

the Secret Tours sound FUN! after I will be hitting a virtual HAPPY HOUR with margaritas and dancing after dinner I heard the cabans boys are coming along. WHere is Goldengirl88 anyway! I'm gonna go look her up! I'm sure she will come too :)

Sending Maegann some happy thoughts! I hate when children have to worry about things like that, It sounds so much scarier than it actually is!

Dorothy~It would definitely be more fun to be cooking with a friend!

Tomorrow after swimming my friend Amy and her girls will be over for our monthly play/lunch date. Maegann's piano is at 5:00 to accomodate for her swim lessons during the usual time. So another full day here. Wednesday afternoon she has her two teeth pulled so that is looming and she's beginning to be a little afraid.

Boston.... LOVED the bike tour today! Thanks for joining me ladies! Tomorrow we're going on the Old Boston Original Secret Tour. Sounded fun to me. Here's the link: www.oldbostontours.com/old_boston_to

Aw - the joys of raising kids. You gotta love them. I know there were trying time when I was rasing my 4 girls - but I love them to death and they all turned into such wonderful responsible adults. Now lets see if I can do it with my son. He is a really good kid. He just wants everything - a tad spoiled.
Janet - really lloking forward to that bike tour of Boston.
Also was wondering if you want to come to my house and do some of your cooking -lol! Have a great night all!

Have that same thing here - oh the arguments over the most silliest things. Last week she was able to continue an argument about whether she argues everything she says. It doesn't help that older sister is 17 and a bit of a second mother. She just tried to negotiate an ice cream float before dinner. I think she's learned all her skills from big sister.

Much better day today raising a boy. LOL He really did shape up after our confrontation so I'm enjoying it while it lasts.

Started the day at swim lessons (9 to go!) and then I worked on bagging the rice I cooked while we were gone (30 cups), got bread ready to bake and made 3 extra base flour mixes for future loaves, lunch and then cut up the chicken for dinner tonight. I'm tired of being in the kitchen!!

Need to get my Bible reading done and look at the VBS stuff some more. It's going to take more effort since the story DVD is very boring. At least they are easy stories to tell!

Happy Monday, Mommies!

I'm laughing reading your posts about raising boys... how about I send you my 7-year-old-going-on-14-year-old girl? Her attitude lately is driving me mad!! She argues with everything I say and thinks she can negotiate when I say "no" to something. And she never stops talking!!! Other than that, she's a lovely child.

Raising boys...Oh how I long for a girl! I told my daughter in law today how I am ready to be the granny-nanny of my granddaughter. My son said atleast 3 years mom! DIL said 2 years. LOL they will probably have a boy anyway! My 3yo has a nasty attitude and temper. We are trying to get it under control now before it is too late. He turns 4 next month. Prayers for you Janet!

Well, my prayers were very much necessary. Immediately little boy started with his lack of respect with me. I spent about 30 min. in the bathroom (my solitary place) in tears praying. Thankfully he did apologize a bit later and he's been better with me since the swat.

I'm all for staying at Martha's Vineyard another day! Totally forgot to arrange our return to Boston for today. LOL Those of you that did make it back to Boston can go attend the Gospel Fest at the City Hall Plaza though. www.cityofboston.gov/arts

Boys are almost home so life will go back to "more work" for me. Amazing how much more is expected when everyone is home! I must admit I found myself a bit uptight coming home from church and finally realized it was because I am not ready for the "wars" that come due to little boy always bucking for those. It's been so peaceful with just little girl. I definitely prayed for a changed attitude and peace!

I did get my scrapbook caught up last night but now I need a couple binders as I didn't have enough room! Always something.

I keep thinking about getting a bike. I have an old one in the shed that hubby could probably spruce up a bit.
Joe (2nd son) is leaving today to council an elementary church camp for a week. He had to use his vacation for it. He was all excited! He took his guitar to lead the campfire music. Mollie is pouting a bit although she is proud of him. So we have a couple shopping days planned and I invited her to come to zumba class with me.

I have no idea what today has instore for me.

Christina - you are so lucky - I hope the loan goes through for your son. I think it would be so wonderful to live on a family homestead.
Janet - I wished I lived near you - I would have loved to visit the Lavender Fields - I did get to visit through your blog.
I went on a 10 mile bike ride yesterday and got some yard and house work done. Today I think I will be mowing. Also went to a very dear neighbore Memorial Service - he was only 54. So sad!!

Hi everyone! We spent another 5 hours at the lavender field (done for this year!) and it was sooooo hot without a breeze in sight. Afterwards Maegann and I stopped at K-Mart to see if they had any Cabbage Patch dolls (didn't) and then went to TGI Friday's for lunch/dinner. Came home and did the barnyard chores (yep..I milked the goats!) and now I'm getting ready to take a shower and do some scrapbooking until time to go to the music program tonight. A fun day.

Found out my friend from church is looking at at least three surgeries for her new baby boy due to his being born with a bilateral cleft palate. Thankfully it was not attached to other physical issues. He will have the lip repaired in about a month and then a second surgery at about age one to work on the palette. The third comes when he's about 5-6 years to hopefully finish most of it all up. She's very nervous about bringing him to church tomorrow.

Enjoying Martha's Vineyard!

I will have a house full of my young adults today. My 2nd son Joe is trying to buy my dad's house. We have cisterns here rather than city water. So they are gathering to help Joe clean it out in preparation for the inspection. That is the only thing standing between him and the loan right now. I don't know if I mentioned before we live on a family farm. It has been in the family for several generations. My dad's house is between mine and my grandparents, so it would be very sad to sell it to strangers. (still haven't talked to my dad since the Thursday incident. I think he is afraid to call me. :)

Happy Saturday!
