Busy, Busy, Busy

I would like to apologize for not writing in a while but seriously, life has just been busy. As much as I am looking forward to the summer and getting some down time from school, I look at the calendar and already it is starting to fill up.
Last weekend was GREAT, Lexi had a birthday party to go to and the whole family was invited. The kids had a great time playing outside in the water and in the inflatable bouncy house, while the adults got to hang out and just relax. After that, Jason's friend Dave came in for the night so we ended up leaving Stephie to baby sit while we went downtown to Savannah Smiles. We didn't get home until 2am which made for an early Sunday morning. None the less, we made it to church just fine and then Jason put new shocks on the Suburban.
Last night I picked Stephie up from school and then went into Savannah to do some swim suit shopping. Let me just say one word for that....DEPRESSING! Then we went to Olive Garden, sat down at the table where the waiter said, "would you like a free sample of some wine". I looked at him and thought, "I am sitting here with 5 kids, no husband and I've been swimsuit shopping, what do you think?" But I just politely said, "yes" and then ordered a glass to go along with dinner. Ahhhhh! :-)
Tonight Lexi has Gymnastics and I also need to get to Wal-Mart
Tomorrow night I am going to make Tye Dye shirts so that we can all wear matching shirts while walking around the Magic Kingdom. Before you laugh and make fun of us for being the dorky family with matching shirts, ask me about our last trip to Disney and how we lost a kid! Not going to happen this time when we all have matching Tye Dye shirts on!
Thursday I am driving into Hilton Head and getting my hair cut and colored. That pretty much takes up most of my day and won't leave much for anything until Thursday evening when Jason gets home and then we need to pack!
Friday we pick Stephie up from school, my parents from the airport and then head on down to Orlando. Once in Orlando we will be in Disney World until Monday when we drive home sometime in the afternoon. My parents are staying until the 31rst at which point I think Dave is going to come back up and spend the weekend with us again. After that Jason's parents are probably coming to visit along with his sister, brother in law and 4 boys! YIKES! I could keep going but I'll save more June and July plans for a later post!
Summer hasn't even started and yet I already see it slipping away!
Busy, busy, busy!

Sounds like a fun summer even if it is busy. Your right... swimsuit shopping is not fun for preteens. What do they do with the rest of that material anyway?

I hope the t-shirt idea works! Would not be good to loose another kid. Good luck. Have you considered taking walkie talkies? It's an extra expense but well worth it. Also when we go to Branson we write our cell numbers on a piece of paper and put it in the little kids shoes or pocket and tell them to give it to a person in costume if they get lost.

Have a fun vacation.

wine...lol...did you want to ask them to just leave the bottle, and they didn't need to bother with a glass? You have been a busy gal. Hope life slows to just a slow breeze.
