What do these things have in common? Absolutely nothing except for the fact that those are the things that have occupied our life recently!
Last week was Vacation Bible School and though it was wonderful and a huge success...part of me is so relieved it is over! (is that bad to say?) I was in charge of the decorations which I was more than happy to do, but had no idea what a big deal it was going to be and how much time it would consume! I feel like I lived at church for days!!! I also volunteered to be a Shepherd for the week so I was in charge of 12, 4 year olds (none of which were my children) each day, so by the time it was over, I hardly had the energy to parent my own! 3 days last week I had to take the boys home from VBS to a babysitter and go work for my dad in the afternoon, so by the evening I was "kaput!"
Amidst all that , I had a every man in this house (including Kyle) got pink-eye. I have no idea how I avoided it, but I did. Must be mommy immunity:)
It always started in one eye and then went to the next...poor things!!!
Here are a few pictures of just some of the decorations at the church:
Sanctuary...the theme was the "Baobab Tree," and I will be singing those songs for a long long time now my friends...sorry, just cannot get them out of my head!
Hallways (after hallway after hallway. most of them had animal prints going down them too but towards then end we got tired)
Parlor going in to the sanctuary where the kiddos walked in
So we told Drake one night last week that after he got his hair cut he could have his ice cream.
What we meant:" when daddy takes you outside and cuts your hair then you can eat your ice cream"
How Drake took it: "The sooner I get scissors and go outside and cut a chunk off the top of my head I can have ice cream."
This is what we found on the ground, along with a bald spot on the top of his head.
So he may be wearing hats more often now...
Which is good because Drake LOOOOOOOOVES to dress up! Always has but it has been amplified this summer!
nothing like a good kimono, alligator hat and purse. And Hunter does like to get in on the action too. Those 2 are just so silly!
The boys have recently really gotten in to superheros, in particular Drake and Spiderman. He either wants to be wearing his Spider man costume, spiderman t-shirt or spiderman pajamas...and that is IT! He sleeps in his costume sometimes too.
Lastly, this was my boys right before bedtime tonight...they are growing up so fast and I feel like even though the days seem long, the past few years have gone by so so fast. They look so big to me now and I just cannot believe how lucky and blessed we are to have these boys. I cannot imagine life without these 2!
