Checking in!

Oh my how fast the days are flying at the moment.  We seem to fill our calendar to the top as soon as winter has passed by.  I've been helping a friend get ready for graduation.  We worked our tails off clearing out her barn, hanging canvas drop cloths, laying "carpet", hanging decorations, hauling tables and chairs, plants....  and then..... and then the weather came and they had to abandon their plans on the morning of the party and take the entire thing into the house for fear of tornadoes.  What a shame!  I've also been working on our house today.... clearing out and donating as much stuff as I can get in my car.  My philosophy is the less stuff I have in my house, the less I have to clean, sort, organize, wash... you know what I mean! Someday you'll come by and there will be nothing but a comfy chair, a computer, a few books and a tea kettle.  And it will be lovely! :D

Today my kids just made my heart swell over and over! Jess was such a treasure and helped me keep Millie busy so that I could tidy up.  All three kiddoes and the dog went for a walk and then when they got back they played in the sun together.

Once it got too warm they came indoors and played chase around the living room floor where Millie charged around at top crawling speed after them!! :D

I love when they all play together... it's just so special! :D  Millie loves to sit on Jessie's lap when they swing ... we looked for a kiddie one just for her this weekend but didn't find one....  we DID find THIS though.....

We bought Jessie a Kayak!!  It wasn't expensive and she's been wanting one for a long time!  Despite very threatening weather we raced out to the lake and popped it in the water for a quick try!

IT WORKED!! :D  LOL!  We had it on a rope initially incase it leaked but it did NOT so we untied it and let her rip!! :D I had a go and was pleasantly surprised at how easy it is to maneuver.  It is very stable and just great fun! :D  I want one too now!! :D 

We've been taking Jess to Shakespeare classes where they are getting ready to perform 12th Night and also taking her to the dentist to get her ready for braces!!  She said "Everything is coming up Jessie"!! :D  She's sure excited about her summer.....  she's got camp coming up too!!  It's all go! Next week Jackster gets to run track at State so that's going to be exciting and ... me??  What about me you ask??? I have a little surprise too... I'll tell you all soon!! 

So off I go.  I worked hard today, all the kiddoes are in their beds ( or their rooms, I'm not kidding myself about Jessie...!!! ) and I'm going to sit and eat some chocolate for a little while before I hit the hay.  I'm going to sleep like a rock tonight! :D
