Sun. - Easter - We were camping,woke up to storms! We opened baskets, made resurrection rolls, got ready for church, took family pics, went to church, went to lunch at this horrible place! We tried this new place and the service was horrible 'cept this one lady was real nice, they were out of everything, the meat was full of fat, they actually served us 2 pieces that had so much fat you couldn't eat it at all, disgusting! Afterwards, it had stopped raining and the sun was shining so back to the campsite we went for our family egg hunts, 2 of them! My sis brought a chocolate cake with peeps on it for desert, yum! :) Then while we were sitting there the air got all yellowy hazy and you could just see the pollen in the air, the cars were yellower than I have seen them all season and they had just been cleaned by the rain! We even saw a puff of pollen coming out of tree. There was even pollen in our hair. Then it was time to head home. Once we go to Noonday we started seeing several big branches and even trees down everywhere. Must have been quite a storm that came through while we were gone! Get home with everyone in desperate need of baths cause of the pollen only to discover that the power had been out earlier and we have no water! After the guys get the water back on Glenn had to run the water for awhile to get all the dirt out and ready for baths. We got everyone clean and in bed, HAPPY EASTER! :)
Mon. - I decided we were going to focus on math for school this day. I realize Cayden has an eye doc appt this morning and think it would be a good opportunity to run by the Hope's closets while in town. Mama keeps Kayson, Keegan and Kirsten to help with the little ones and I head to into town with Cayden and Chris. After waiting 2 hours at the eye doc we leave with good news, Cayden does not have to patch for the next 6 months and if his eyes stay even he won't have to patch again! YES!! Then on to the first Hope's Closet where I found some nice long shorts for Kirsten. Then we went to Chick-Fil-A to celebrate The eye appt. Then the other Hope's Closet where I found some nice brand new looking Old Navy jeans for Chris! PTL! Last thing for the day was get Chris to his baseball practice.
Tues. - We worked on Bible in the morning and reading in the afternoon. I was on the phone with my sis that afternoon and realized that my house seemed hot which seemed strange bc the a/c was on so I check the vents and it feels like heat coming out! UGH! Then storms are coming in but Chris still has a game. It surprisingly didn't start storming till after his game. His team won! :) He was so excited!
Wed. - Such a rainy/stormy day but an exciting one. Our 100th day of school this year! So many activities we did involving 100. Had lots of fun! :)
Thurs. - We worked on science and some LA for school. Glenn was coming home sore most of this week from police academy. When he got home this night I was just getting up from a nap and I was like is my shirt wet? Uh oh! Yep, the bed was leaking! Guess we're sleeping at Mama's tonight!
Fri. - More math! I hadn't been sleeping well this week, feeling stressed, forgot to use my lavender oil to help me sleep. My mind was swirling from everything this week, a/c and bed still broken, what's it all going to cost, Glenn needs a new vehicle. Spent the day at Mama's. Then it's early evening and Oh No! Here is Kirsten's friend and her mama to pick Kirsten up to spend the night!! I had totally completely forgot! We get her packed and out the door to have a great time. She is excited! (This is the only friend Kirsten gets to spend the night with, they've known each other since kindergarten.) The rest of us are at Mama's another night!
Sat. - We start the day with Glenn and daddy fixing the bed, looking at the a/c, calling the a/c guy and putting the sprinklers in the garden while I am going through Chris' clothes only to discover that Chris needs more shorts! Then the guys help me plant my rose plant that the babies gave me for Valentine's day that I had been wanting to get in the ground. Then they decide to look at the dryer which had been making this horrible squeaking noise and catching the clothes, leaving marks and holes on some. They get ahold of our appliance guy who gets them the right parts and woohoo our dryer is fixed!! We decide to head into Longview. We pick up Kirsten, then drive around to look at SUVs till dark. Then we head to Target to look for a carseat for Kayson and a highback booster for Keegan. They were out of the carseat we wanted, I think bc it was the cheapest so Glenn had to go back a few days later to get it but we did find a nice booster for Keegan and some cheap shorts for Chris. While Glenn sat in the van with the boys, Kirsten and I ran into Walmart for some groceries for the week. We head home with the knowledge that we will be missing church to wait for the a/c guy which also means one more night at Mama's. $$$ later the a/c was fixed, then Glenn bought one of the SUVs we had seen and a new week was started!! Yep, last week was certainly an adventure! I think I am tired just typing it! Whew!
