My 300th Blog Post!

Wow! 300 posts and still plugging away! I'm glad I've stuck with blogging and that I've been so lucky to have readers and comments to encourage me along. So often I find myself thinking, "I should blog about..." or "Ooo! I need to get a video of this for the blog!" Aidan has it in his head that it's called "Mommy's Log" and says positive and negative things about it. Sometimes he will say, "Mom, take a picture of this for your log!" other times, "Don't put that on your log!" and sadly I also hear, "All you ever want to do is work on your log!"

This has been a great outlet for me, a place to keep track of what we have done and a place to reach out to others and learn from their experiences. I wholeheartedly suck at scrap booking in the traditional manner, and I haven't been the greatest at baby book records either. Hopefully 10 years from now, the kids will appreciate the blog archives as much as a scrapbook.

So those notes aside.... what have we been up to this weekend and what lies ahead next week?

We enjoyed gorgeous weather and fun with lots of friends and family this weekend.

Friday evening, Doug took Aidan and our niece Mackenzie swimming at the Y, while I stayed home with to late nap-taking kiddos. Aidan apparently gulped down too much pool water and after being spun around in his ring floaty by his cousin, he threw up in the pool. Oof! The lifeguard cleared the pool and shut it down to clean it out. Luckily it was close to closing time anyway.

Saturday, we had planned on hosting the monthly Young Families Supper Club dinner at the church. Around 2 pm, we found out the church had a graduation party booked and we couldn't meet there. Yikes! So we kicked in gear: got the house cleaned up, de-cluttered toys, stuffed piles in closets ;) and called our guests to tell them the dinner would be at our house instead. It all came together and we had a great time relaxing with everyone at home while all the kids ran wild through the house and yard. Fifteen adults and fifteen kids- the most we've ever had at our house!

Sunday, we went to church, made a trip to WalMart/Target and later the Hardware Store. We went for a walk in the evening, and wound down afterwards with a movie at home.

This week is the last week of school. Tuesday night we have Sean's first tball practice at 6 and then I have La Leche League at 7. Wednesday morning is the awards presentation at Aidan's school, then his first tball practice in the evening. And Saturday evening we have planned a double date night with friends to go out for sushi to celebrate our 9th Wedding Anniversary. We are also planning to start demo on the downstairs bathroom reno.

Summer break, here we come!

It doesn't sound like your weekend was very relaxing - but it does sound fun. We made the kids work outside with us and I found it very satisfying.
