What we've been up too...

I have taken a little bloggy leave of absence but I think I am back now : )

We finished up for the school year.  I am hopefully going to get my review done this coming week.  Every year I say, this is the year that we are going to do some schooling this summer but that has yet to happen.  My kids of course are thrilled about this.  The only thing that we continue is Bible (because this is not really school) and reading. 

We also had VBS.  Our church has a fabulous VBS every year!  This year it was called Sea Quest and it was about Jonah.  While they were in their classes I helped out with sorting and distributing the crafts for the younger kids.  My kids wish every week was VBS week! 

We've had company!  For the last week we have been blessed with my mom, dad and sister in laws.  My children have so enjoyed being with there grandpeeps!  They live in NC and we haven't seen them in a LOOOONGGG time.  Way too long!  We had a full house, but it was a huge blessing to have them here.  I am trying to come up with a plan to get them to move back to MD.  (Hey Mom if you are reading this, hint hint!)
The LSG house has celebrated 3 birthdays in the last month.  Yes, 3!  Little Bits, AlphaBoy and I all turned a year older.  We always let the kids choose the theme of their party, which has gotten simpler over the years.  The boys had KungFu Panda and Cars birthdays and I got a surprise party at Chevy's (my favorite Mexican restaurant)!  They even made me wear a ridiculous sombrero! 

This week we start swim lessons, another thing that my kids really look forward to! Along with our pool membership, the kids get 2 weeks of swim lessons and they L O V E it!  They are taught mostly be older teens from the swim team and they make it lots of fun for the little ones. 

So as you can see we've been pretty busy.

Great times! It is lovely for the kids to have their grandparents close, isn't it :)
Hope the swimming goes well.... I'm sure they'll love it!
