Summer is finally here!

Summer is in full swing here and chaos reigns, as much as it does in any other season!

Theo and Max are in ESY, which stands for extended school year. I guess I'm old because where I come from, we used to call it "summer school." Now-a-days everything is an alphabet soup arrangement: IEP, FSP, OT, PT, ASAP!! Max is SO happy to be picked up by the bus each morning at 7:55am.

Ralph and Zhen are attending YESS camp (there are those letters again!). They are kept BUSY from 8:15am - 4:30pm. They often fall asleep in the car on the way home. I have to leave the house at 7:45am to drop them off.

Last week Ruby and Leroy attended VBS (more letters!!). Jordan and Thomas worked there as helpers. We were ROCKING every single morning last week. Trying to get everyone dressed, each with a change of clothes in a bag, and out the door on time was stressful!!

Tomorrow, two of my big helpers leave for church camp. Today, my mission is to get their camp physicals completed. Nothing like waiting until the last minute, huh?! And I "wasted" the morning on a three mile hike in the country.

It wasn't really wasted because I had some special time with Jordan and Ruby. We had some great conversations! We found meadowlarks, and doves. We picked up cans, found dog tracks, deer tracks and a little robin egg! A happy morning.

Uh oh...

Pretty little egg yolk!!

Max is putting on some weight, but still has those scrawny arms and legs!
