a little this, a little that
Where did the month of June go? Seriously! I blinked, and it was gone. Between soccer, Wesley's birthday, a visit from the parental units, swimming lessons, kitting, kit planning, and who knows what else time just got away from me. It was "suggested" by someone (who knows who she is) that I best get something posted on my blog before "someone else" posts something for me. So, with a few minutes of down time in between projects, you all get to read my ramblings, along with a pictorial of events.
Soccer... the season is over (short season, only 5 weeks). Wesley had a blast, and learned a lot. No soccer again right now, but I'm sure there will be plenty more in the future. Here he is after his last game with his first soccer medal!
The birthday... a small cake, and some balloons. How easy can it get? That was the only request Wesley had for his 5th birthday. He didn't want a party. Didn't want a bunch of toys. Just wanted a cake and balloons (both of which he got). We spent the day at Northwest Trek. Lots of fun! Then came home to a few presents that we had to pick out ourselves since he didn't seem to know what he wanted, dinner, and cake.
The parental units.... they arrived on the 21st and left on the 28th. Oddly enough, Wesley didn't seem to be as excited to see them this time? Maybe because they were just here in April? Oh, he still had fun having them here, and got spoiled as ever. Shopping, bowling, eating out, special treats. I'm told that's what grandparents are for!
Swimming lessons... after going to a waterpark with his father, and going under water when he wasn't expecting it, Wesley became deathly afraid of the water. So, off to the YMCA for swimming lessons we went. The first lesson was almost unbearable for me. He cried and begged me to get him out of the pool. He was also sent back a level because he refused to put his head under the water. It's amazing what 2 weeks of lessons, and an understanding teacher can do for a kids confidence level. He is now going under the water, belly floating, back floating and actually looks forward to going to the pool. The next 2 week session starts on Tuesday.
Kitting... Snazzy Scraps July kits are now shipping! It was touch and go there up until the last possible minute, waiting on an order from Li'l Davis. But, they came through, and all the preordered kits went out on Friday... as scheduled.
Kit planning... are you wanting to know what's in the August kit? I'll give you a little hint. Pink and brown. Shhhh! Don't tell anyone. You're the only one's who know.
And other stuff... did you see the awesome contest Snazzy Scraps & Eclectic Scraps are co-sponsoring? Get your layouts in ladies! There are some great prizes to be won.
Today has been a day for catching up, and a day for beautifying. I will leave you with a rare treat... a picture of me and my new hair color. A girl needs something to make herself feel better some days! ;o)
I hope everyone is having a safe and enjoyable holiday weekend!!!
