This is week 5 of the kids 10 week summer vacation. They have been busy even on vacation. Craig spent the first week with C and her kids going to Cub Scout camp. During the day he had a blast at camp. Each night when it was time for bed he was homesick. This was the first time he had ever been away from home for an extended period. And not only was he away from home, his sisters were not there with him. But he survived and came home with lots of smiles. I met C and her family at Downtown Disney to pick Craig up. After I gave him a big hug I noticed that he had lost his other front tooth. He has no idea when he lost it. But now he has trouble eating corn on the cob. =)
The second week was VBS at church. Sarah was able to be a crew leader this year since she volunteered last year. Kaley was an assistant crew leader. Craig had fun learning more about God and His plan for our lives.
Sarah & Kaley got to see Toy Story 3 with the youth group on opening weekend. I must confess it was a little hard for me to drop them off at the movie theater instead of staying with them. They are growing up so fast and I know I have to loosen my grasp on them but sometimes it is hard for me to do. I want them to keep their childhood innocence for as long as possible. As a late birthday present I took Craig and a friend to see Toy Story 3. I must say I liked the third movie as much as the first two. Toy Story has been one of my favorite Pixar movies since it came out.
This week the kids are spending time with Grandpa T. Today they took a train ride over to Tampa for the day. Grandpa T has always liked to take the kids to the train station in Winter Park to watch the trains. Tomorrow they are heading to the beach for a few days. They will be back home on Friday. As much as I love my kids, I am enjoying a few days of quiet. I will be ready for them to be home on Friday.
Work has been keeping me busy. More and more I really enjoy my job. I am an admin specialist now. I really enjoy this much more than being on the phones. I also have been able to learn another part of the business as I am now working on the Inpatient side of things. We are supposed to be having our annual reviews soon and with that comes a raise. More money is always nice!
Well I should sign off. I am going to try to post a little more often. I really do enjoy writing and have let the busyness of life keep me from doing one of the things I love.
