This week had so many fun memories yet again! It was jam-packed full of activities in the beginning of the week; then there was a bit of normalness to keep us sane; then we finished the week with a bang!
Last Saturday, my whole family went to celebrate with my nephew his senior high’s graduation. It was a little chilly; but there was no rain, and everyone had a great time. I had made 300 cookies for the event, and not all of them were eaten. I was able to use those cookies for two different events this week which was very helpful!
Sunday, my sisters and I sang in my home church on Sunday morning. We used to sing together more often, but since we are now scattered all over the world (literally), we sing together only when my sister Amy comes back to the United States. I get rather nervous, but it is fun to sing with my sisters. If you want to see us sing, I put a link on the Creative K Kid’s Facebook page. After church, we all ate at my mom’s and dad’s house and had a great time of talking with each other.
Monday was Memorial Day, and we had another day of family togetherness. This time, everybody came to my house, and we celebrated 11 of the cousin’s birthdays. It looked like Christmas with all the presents! After a full day, everyone headed back to their respective homes, and we fell back into a little bit of routine.
Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday I babysat. Wednesday was also the oldest two girls’ last day of school, which involved all the normal last day of school events: food for parties, teacher’s gifts, and excitement! Wednesday night, I was able to take some of the cookies I had already made for Connor’s party to a kindergarten graduation party for the 4’s and 5’s Wednesday night program–so even though last week I lived in the land of cookies; this week I was thankful I did not have to make any!
Thursday was Kristi’s actual birthday. It was a cooking day as we made homemade doughnuts in the morning, and her choice of food for supper. She chose pigs in a blanket, cheesy broccoli casserole, and mashed potatoes. For dessert, she wanted cookies and ice cream. Once again, I was able to use the cookies I had already cooked!
Friday, we went to Santa’s Village with two of my nephews. We prayed that God would hold the rain off, and we had a beautiful day! It was a little windy and cloudy at times, but it was not too hot and not one drop of rain fell. We used Groupons I had bought earlier in the year, and everyone had a great time!
Today looks like a day that I will love–getting the house cleaned up and some work accomplished! The girls might not like that, but life cannot be parties all the time! Joshua, however gets to party some more. His aunt will take him and his two boy cousins that are around his age to LEGOLAND for a future Kindergarten graduation party. Yes, when Amy and her family comes back from South Africa, many fun activities occur! We have to grab the moment, right? Of course, my nephews think America is a lot of fun–one party after another :).
