My last week of packing lunches!!!

Another great weekend.

We were blessed with fantastic weather and I even got to enjoy a quiet moment with my husband on the back deck after the girls went to bed (we were convinced that if we lit enough candles, the mosquitoes would stay away). And for all of you that said my husband looked like Jordan Knight from the Back Street Boys on my Anniversary post, I'll just say he thinks he has the "right stuff"...hee hee.

I have to say it one more time, Emma finished up her spring soccer season with a GOAL on Saturday. She hasn't loved soccer this year, so we're really proud of her.

I even got to sneak away to the Allegan Antique Fair on Sunday with my mom and sister. Talk about amazing girl bonding time!!

Drum roll please...this my last week of packing lunches and getting everyone out of the house on time!! School is done on Friday for Chris and Emma. Although my work schedule is year-round, I'm looking forward to only being responsible for me (AND ONLY ME) in the morning. No more stressing about homework and missing shoes. I can't wait to throw their lunch boxes and knapsacks in the cupboard until school resumes. We've decided to keep Josie in daycare on Tuesday's during the summer to maintain a routine and to help with the transition back in the fall. This will also give Chris and Emma one day a week to do things that aren't necessarily toddler-friendly. We found out that the ice cream truck visits her daycare on Tuesday's and decided that would be the PERFECT day to attend. Don't you agree?

Have a great week, everyone.

(glad I didn't offend with the New Kids comment!)

We started summer break last Friday--so nice not to have to worry about the morning rush and especially HOMEWORK!

And congrats Emma on the soccer game, way to go!

Have a great day!

What a great way to start a week!
I can't wait for you to come to visit me in ATL so I can take you to the Scott Antique Market. That would be a blast!!

I LOVE to go "antiquing". There is just something about all those older things that I LOVE!!! Looks like it was a lot of fun!!

OH...your porch looks so nice too!!! We have been concerned about mosquitoes in the past too...but I tell ya...the smoke from the fire on our fire pit keeps them away. It's GREAT!!! We still light our citronella candles...but when we light the fire and the smoke goes everywhere...the mosquitoes leave!! It's GREAT!!! It's the only way I'll stay outside! :) I can't stand mosquitoes. If I'm out and they are around...they will get me! UGH!!

Hope you guys have a GREAT summer!!!
