Summer and Such

Summer is well underway and apparently it's synonymous with me cooking 24/7...not! I keep finding notes from one little person begging for banana bread. The other little person wants fried okra everyday. Can someone say sandwich? It's summer break for goodness sake.

Last week the boys went to soccer camp. It was only a few hours a day, but they came home hot, tired and very smelly! This week they're going to a local VBS. Getting rowdy for Jesus with 1000 other kids makes them nutso for the rest of the evening! Lord help us! Next week will be flag football camp. Throw in a visit from Papa and an anniversary dinner (that I hope I don't forget) and we're on a roll! We haven't started our academic review yet, and that should be very interesting considering how much complaining I get for all of my other requests and suggestions.

This summer I decided to use a monetary reward system. The boys earn mom bucks for doing chores and pay fines for disobedience. It was working until today when they lost $10 each (their entire earnings) for karate chopping each other to the floor in the grocery store.

Pregnancy is well...coming along. We're in the home stretch and I'm feeling big, hot and extremely tired! So many things need to be done and I just don't have the energy to even think about them, let alone do them. Back to school should be very interesting!
