Let me start by saying that I just took some cold medicine
and I don't know when it's gonna kick in,
but if I post anything within the next 12 hours,
you'd be wise to disregard it entirely.
In other news, Kerry has provided me with some pictures of the last month, so here ya go.
One of my good, good lifelong friends, (our moms were pregnant together and we were born two weeks apart), lives in the area and occasionally gets us motocross tickets from her sister.
Thanks Kristie and Sherrie!
I graciously decided to let the Kerry and the boybarians have a manly-man evening and stayed home to
enjoy the peace and quiet do chores.
Wasn't that gracious and noble of me?
I thought so.
I mean, you know you're at a Testoster-zone event when there's an ambulance standing by
and the sound carries for miles.
There were a few spills and chills, but no lost limbs or big emergencies.
And a good time was had by all.
I said, "A GOOD! TIME! was HAD! by ALL!"
Don't worry, honey, you're hearing will come back in a few hours.
Can you guess what Tate missed the most while we were in Oregon on vacation?
Of course, we talked with Daddy on the phone several times :D
And Daddy kept kinda busy while we were gone, thank-you-very-much.
(No, that's not him driving.)
We're gearing up to officially start school next week.
Of course, we're starting with a party, while everybody else will be at school.
But we'll be jumping in to our full schedule next week,
and the boys are slightly less than enthusiastic.
I even got all organized and made them each a daily checklist, (I know, shock and awe),
because I shouldn't be having to remind them to empty the dishwasher,
or record pertinent information in their reading logs.
You can imagine their joy.
And in the mean time, we're supposed to have friends over to play tomorrow
and then the first soccer practice (!),
more friends over to play or go to the lake on Friday,
hiking on Saturday,
the boys are being baptized on Sunday,
(which is not a minor item in the agenda, but I'll post on that later!),
Labor Day picnic on Monday,
and the first-day-of-school-beach-party on Tuesday.
So I really don't have time for a nasty head-cold, yah?
Because I either feel yucky (unmedicated) or stoned (medicated).
