Tuesday, June 24, 2008 days....

Well, we are done with Aladdin Jr. and had a wonderful experience. My kids are defiantly artistic both vocally and love to be on stage. They must get that from their dad. Ha-ha. We are staying busy now with VBS and trying to get a schedule for the summer started with homeschooling and living in a no TV world. So far, it has not worked, but t he theory is good, right? My son, who loves to negotiate, a future lawyer, finds a reason to watch tv or a show everyday that is logical. Oh well. This entry will be short due to my kids arriving very soon and I know they will be very hungry. I have decided that I love the summer. This is a great year so far.

Slow, hot summer day...inside

Today the kids and I were able to get the boring errands done early and got back home by lunch. On these hot days, I try to be indoors by mid-day. The heat really does bother me. Some laugh, but I get physically sick when in the heat too much. Okay, let me clarify, I mean the sun, direct heat on me. In the shade, I stay okay. It is a real bummer in life. So many cool things are done in the heat and I just kind of avoid them. This brings me to today where we got inside and we are not leaving again until rehearsal tonight. A good inside day. We did laundry, cleaned rooms and just stayed cool. Family is coming this weekend, so I am preparing the house for guests. It is only now that I wish I had a maid.

Hot Summer Day

Hello all those out in cyber world. It has been a while since writing, but life is busy and I am finally relaxing into summer. We love summer time. Pool, friends, watermelon and fun. We have a pool in our neighborhood and it is so awesome. Every morning we swim for about 2 hours or so. I love it. Sarah is turning brown like an indian. Today she screamed and ran to me in tear stating she has brown lines on her skin, what is happening. I laughed and told her the sun turns peoples skin darker, she cried. In only a few sweet years, she will want tan skin. Then, like her fair skinned freckled Mom, she will only turn pink/red. The kids are in a play this weekend called Aladdin Jr. and it should be fun. They are on stage alot. This will be an adventure. I am a backstage Mom and getting to know the cast. Drew is just happy and loves being on stage. Sarah has made a friend with alittle boy who also has Asperger's syndrome. How ironic. The two kids with AS become buddies. They love to hang out and laugh. Watching the kids grow is bitter sweet. I can see the heart aches they will have and learn from, but in a way I want to shield them from life. I guess every parent goes through seasons of this. All of a sudden my Sarah is a big girl. She will be in the first grade. This makes me feel happy and sad.

Okay... enough emotions for one day. I will start writing more...... Wendy
