Summer Memories

Well, I am officially done with Summer I and have moved on to Summer II. I really thought that once Summer I was over I would have more time for this blogging hobby of mine... unfortunately, my children have had other ideas.

We have been to the pool all but one day this week... my skin is nice and golden... but the chlorine is doing awful things to my hair. Yesterday, at the pool, Kali decided she was a swimmer. She started with swimming from one person to another... by the end of the day she was jumping off the diving board and swimming to the ladder. She was great! Her only issue is that her hair gets in her face and she has to stop and swim with one hand to swipe her hair off of her face. Guess we will be going for the ponytail at the pool from now on!

Last week, Megan went to GA camp... for those who don't know what GA's is... it stands for Girls in Action and it is a class that teaches the girls about missions and missionaries... they do service projects and all kinds of good stuff. I did it as a child, my mom did it as a child, and I am pretty sure even my grandma did it as a child. GA's was the best part of going to church as a kid... and it is why I wanted to return to a baptist church (among other reasons)! Anyway, Megan was gone from Wednesday until Sunday... and she had a blast. Every evening at camp they had praise and worship time... the band was "Two Empty Chairs" and I have been informed that one of the guys was the cutest thing ever! Funny how an 8 yr old can determine that. I was completely worried about how she would do... I mean, this was her first time away from home like this... she did so well she didn't even call home! I was especially worried about what my very picky eater would eat... she came home from camp saying "camp food is great"... so maybe I need to get some recipes from the kitchen.

I do think things will settle down over the next couple of days... so I hope to catch up on all of the posts I've missed!

Go Megan and Kali! We did GA's when I was little too. I got drafted into directing the GA program at our church in Texas, and quickly discovered how few directoral skills I possess. It was lots of fun, but I was glad when the old director came back and took over.

I've been reading along these last few weeks, but haven't had much time for responses. Summer craziness. But I wanted to tell you that I totally think you did the right thing about the Push Pop issue. If you don't stop it when it's small, you'll face it again when it's big. You done good. :)
