Summer 2011, Chapter One

Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh... Here it is. The time I have been waiting for since September. The last week of school! I am so excited to have my babies home with me for a couple of precious months. I think it is going to be the best summer EVER! I still don't understand moms who dread the summer months or the lack of schedules or the chaos of the school year activities. I have been pretending summer started Memorial Day weekend to extend the season out in my mind... And now it is here for real!

And to make things more interesting, we suffered a couple of "blows" to our life last week,  one being that Brady is sort of  "laid off," as they say... There just isn't any work to be had out there in the construction business. Hopefully he will be able to work at least a couple of days a week, but at this point we really don't know. So this news threw me for a loop. But only for one afternoon! Then, all of a sudden, I had an epiphany - I was out walking and I saw Brady on his quad with my B's on their bikes riding towards me, and I realized Brady's being home will actually be a great thing. The timing is perfect! We will have Brady home with us during summer!

AND, even more, we have been getting some projects done around the place! That is an added bonus to the situation. So for once, I used my mind for some positive thinking, and now I'm actually happy that Brady is "laid off" and we are both looking forward to a special summer with our kiddos. What can we say? HELLO SUMMER - we're ready for ya!

  1. Bobbi Jo - How great to have another blog to follow!! Yeah! Thanks for sending me the email to let me know that this is something you are doing. I've been blogging since 2005 - and my only regret is that I didn't begin earlier!! (Especially when I use "Blurb" to convert the blog writing and pictures into yearly way to "scrapbook/record family history" ever!)

    A couple of things I've noticed already since perusing a few of your posts... 1) The teacher shown in the picture with "Shaye-Shaye" (not sure if you want me using the real name here) is a gal I went to school with (Sandi) - she was a year behind me - so sweet! Also, it looks like that was a Hosanna recital location and outfit - Mikayla participated in a couple of those herself (not this year or last, though...).

    I will enjoy continuing to catch up on your archive and keep up to date with the fun details of your life!


April - Here and Gone in the Blink of an Eye

It seems crazy to think Easter Sunday was on April Fool's Day this year, but it totally was. We started our Easter at mass with our fa...
