The wonderful, yet often hairpulling life story of a stay-at-home mom of five cuties (Hailey, Shelby, Dylan, Ashley & Logan) and the journey through life raising our family with the best hubby around (love you, Kevin), and enjoying the blessings God provides to us daily while trying to keep it all in perspective when bumps in the road arise!

Tired Tuesday...even during summer
Well, we are tired. I just let that be ok today. We were all up sorta early bc we had an appt to get to. I am ok with cartoon watching. They rarely get to do it during the school year.
We headed out early for the annual big eye appt. She has to go to IU bc her eye issues (muscles) are more involved. It just means for a long morning here. Loggy was good, but he was done after 2hours.
Thankfully her prescription has not changed and the eye muscles issues have not worsened. At one point it looked like she'd need another surgery...at this point hopefully not.
She is going to get contacts most likely (for sports)...so that is another 2 hour appt in a couple weeks. Oh joy.
Poor girl...dilated eyes and she had to be at a core group get together all day including an outdoor soccer game. No fun for her sensitive eyes. And these are just not fashionable.
All ready for her 24 hours core group retreat. She was excited. But it came during a busy week...as tomorrow she goes to Holiday World for 16 hours with school and then we leave for NYC Friday. Oh well. She is used to a busy schedule even in summer.
I left these two home alone this morning. They just vegged. I was home by lunch and we played games. Ash was wondering why I was making faces at her....then she figured out her lips were blue from the cookie cake icing :) She looks a little goth :)
I think D thought I was cheating off him.
We had some laugh over Apples to Apples.
I was so tired I read this word as Underwater....not quite the same word. D laughed at me.
I won the game...even being so tired.
We moved the couches to the sunroom so I could nap in there (which was lovely!)...and the kids discovered Lo had been eating their candy and hiding the wrappers under the couch. Not cool, Lo!
I had to lay my head down. Not a great week for me...feeling not-so-stellar :( They were so sweet....just chillin' by the tv when I woke up. I hated to waste a nice day outside, but we all needed a down day and honestly needed one out of the sun after lake-day yesterday.
Then off to Walmart to prep for D's big 1st boy scout camping trip! He's excited and needed lots of camp gear! This is hard core stuff, I guess.
You should have seen me picking out camp stuff. Fish out of water for me. No idea. Daddy is much wiser in this area. But I did ok.
Dinner outside. Ash was my rockstar today...she helped in so many ways....watering the gardens, getting the birds new seed, helping with dinner. I was grateful.
We got out the new ladderball game. The kids enjoyed it.
Lo did especially...bc he likes anything that has strings and balls on it :)
He had to be restrained at times :)
He was pretty good at it!
We headed back to the core group "retreat" in our old 'hood...and helped the girls put up our big tent. Lo helped too :)
Such a sweet group of girls from church. And daddy was nice enough to help us set this up after work. It might have been interesting had I done it alone :)
Lo brought his new baby hammer and helped with all the stakes :)
I am sure they are having a ball right about now!
And Hays had a nice visit with one of her best Bloomy friends, Hadley...at one of her fav. restaurants in Lincoln Center, PJ Clarkes (and dessert at Magnolia Bakery :))
Sweet pic of two sweet girls by our fav. fountain. Can't wait to be there on Friday! Can't wait to watch our girl dance on Saturday! YAY, YAY!
