Dear Blog...

Please forgive me for completely neglecting you the past few weeks..

Between our trip to Chicago,

and fireworks..

Followed by a round with the stomach flu,
(No pic here.. You're welcome)

2 weeks of swimming lessons,

and a week of Vacation Bible School..

A crazy day at the Children's Museum where I rushed in only to drop off my 2 boys for my sister to watch (along with 6 of her kids) while I took Ella to two doctors appointments, then rushed back to take over watching my 3 kids (plus 5 of hers) while she hurried to her doctor's appointment, then  rushed back so we could drive 1 1/2 hours back home to entertain guests for supper..
Borderline insane.. I know. But it worked. Somehow..

Some campfire arts and crafts,

tumbling head over heels down 5 cement stairs because we were walking with our swim towel over our head and biting completely through our cheek, causing it to swell at least 3 times it's normal size..
I'm actually bummed it healed up so fast.. I didn't get a real good picture..


Time spent with great friends (and a tube),

blatantly ignoring Bob Barker's advice

to spay and neuter your pets...

A little of this..

A homemade slip 'n slide..

And of course our fair share of this..

All coupled with the looming threat of the "S" word starting again all too soon
(yet some days, not nearly soon enough) 

Can you understand why I haven't been around much?

Please forgive me.
