A couple extra pictures

I have a couple neat pictures of the kids, thought I'd just add them on for fun.

So whats been happenin'?

It might be easier to ask, What hasn't been happening. It has been a crazy couple of weeks. I knew it would be, but sheesh, I'm tired now.

Since I last blogged (an actual blog entry), a visit from Mike & Andrea and boys, a zoo field trip with Gavin's grade one class, we've had the last class of piano, windup barbeque with a group that we meet with and fellowship with once a month, the last baseball game, the last ballet class, a dance recital, a baseball windup get together, several play dates, several barbeques with friends, several Sunday get togethers with family, a visit from a Alex and family (who are in Houston now), we started ripping up our yard, a couple backyard picnics, a year end party for Gavin, and finished grade one. And I'm probably forgetting some things in the mix.

Mommy has come close to mental collapse, but be rest assured I am still hanging on! By a thread yes, but hanging on.

We beached with good friends today (lovely time), had a play date with our Irish friend Amy and had our first outdoor meal of the season. We have been using the barbeque lots, but it hasn't been nice enough to eat outside. Tonight we did.

Life is good at the Davis house. Crazy but good.

I have been busy taking pictures, but not downloading them. There are so many I can't even begin to start to pick. So I'll post them all - all 180! Ha ha - just kidding. Of course I have to pick. Hmmmm. This may take a while, after all my kids are soooo gorgeous.

I'm feeling almost a bit punchy. My head is still spinning from the busyness. My son has become accustom to a rather action packed schedule and is showing signs of running his mommy ragged this summer. Wish me luck. I tried to convince him tonight that we could have a couple days to just veg and relax. In fact, maybe I should enforce an all movie day, we could pull out the sofa couch and watch movies in bed all day. Hmmm. Not sure that would fly. Tomorrow we are watching a friend's daughter for a couple hours, I'm using that as an excuse to not run around doing tons of things.

Need to post

I have pictures, I have lots of news to report, I likely even have a deep thought or two. What I don't have is time. Give me a few days to get through the next crazy couple days and then - VOILA, I'll be back.

Another Saturday

Gavin is happy this morning because his baseball game has been cancelled because of rain. Now he can stay home and play wii with his Dad. The world is right for him.

June has been so busy its crazy. I think we need a day of rest any way, so the rain isn't completely unwelcome. It will keep me from feeling like we have to start on our yard projects too. Don't get me wrong, I'd rather have nice weather, but we are all tired and may as well see the plus side.

I have some pictures I need to post, from our water play yesterday, yes it was finally warm enough to have outdoor water play. But, that will have to happen later, I'm too lazy to get up and get the camera.

I should be cleaning the house, the busier we are the more of a wreck it is. But, not sure I feel like doing that either.

I'm a rebel.

Saturday morning thoughts

I'll blame this post on the fact that I haven't had my second cup of coffee, nothing really works until I do.

I just had this conversation with Gavin:

Gavin - Mom, do you know what I would do if I was in a hot air balloon and it was falling to the ground.
Me - No, what would you do?
Gavin - I'd go down and scream.
Me - That is likely what I would do too son.

Yesterday I was trying to get Wes on the phone and couldn't get him. He'd set it down somewhere and he couldn't hear it. He does this fairly frequently, I don't find it annoying at all.

Anyhow, I left him a message and it went like this:

There once was a good man named Wes.
Who often put his wife to the test.
When he wasn't home.
He'd not answer his phone.
And that would be my husband WES.

So, see what happens when you don't answer your phone honey. It results in poetry that we will both regret!

Off to have my coffee. Hope your day is less rainy than ours.

Catching up

I have been so busy trying to get a few projects done outside that the interior of our house has fallen apart. So today is fix it day. Laundry, tidying, making appointments, updating the blog, dishes etc.

On top of the projects we had Bronwyn's picnic, Gavin's ball game (first one this season the whole family has gone to), piano, dance, play dates with friends, school...

This morning the girls are very busy. Bronwyn is expecting her imaginary friend Lipstick to come over. I am supposed to change into something prettier, apparently Lipstick has high standards for an imaginary friend. Mari has been working at a puzzle, it is a bit advanced for her, but she has been piecing it together. Not in the proper order and perhaps with too much force, but she has been occupied for almost an hour doing it, so who will complain?

Hope your Wednesday is as productive as mine.
