Well, it was a week of recovery for me! This old body just doesn't take all I put it through this last weekend well any more!!! Seriously, Monday I felt like a truck had hit me!! But having to get back into a schedule and having all my kids home for one last week got me going pretty fast!
We spent a lot of time together as a family this week....I loved it. Alyssa moves out on her own next week and then it is just a couple of weeks till Jason goes back to college. So I am enjoying all the time I can get with them!!!
Our weather has cooled off somewhat......funny how 97 seems cool! We were actually supposed to get some rain this weekend, but I it has gone everywhere BUT here....ugh! And we are supposed to be back in the 100s by Tuesday.....as far as weather goes, this has been a long summer!
Here's my week:
This is Kelly.
She is married to a guy that was in the youth group of the FIRST church Steve and I served at. I was told she would be at She Speaks, but we had never met and there were 650 women attending.....chances of us finding each other were slim and we didn't.
Riding in the shuttle back to the airport, I hear a woman behind me saying she is from Minot, ND...yep, it was Kelly. How cool is that?!!
Jared's glasses broke while I was gone, so I had to take him in to get new ones. I was hoping to quickly pick out a pair because I seriously felt like a truck ran over me. But of course, his prescription was outdated so he had to have an eye test......finally got his glasses mid afternoon.
Jason was born with a hole in his heart and we have had to go for check ups all his life. Last year, however, they found he had a leaking valve and told us to come back in a year. We were 3 years between visits, so this was a bit difficult to hear. If it was still leaking, we would have to consider heart surgery....praise God the valve had quit leaking!!! And he doesn't have to go back for 2 more years!!!
I can't believe I forgot to take a picture today!!
We had a church wide swim party and it was a BLAST!!!
We rented a neighborhood pool and had a BBQ too...so fun!!!
Love it when my whole family is home!!!
We had a wonderful dinner and then all went out and played water volley ball till it got dark.
I really have the best family ever!
We found this coffee table at Savers for only $18. Alyssa spent the day working on it with our neighbor, Jeff, to get it fixed up and painted for her new apartment.
Jason brought his girlfriend, Andrea, to visit us this weekend. We are having so much fun getting to know her.....and she love to play games.....she fits right in! :)
So how was your last week of July?
