Busy as Bumble Bees

We have had a busy three weeks of summer! The week after school we had VBS and our neice stayed with us. After that week, the big kids went and stayed with my parents for a week. While they were there Paxton had his circumcision surgery. He did okay. I'm not going to say great like some I've heard, but it took at least three days or so for him not to cry every time you changed his diaper. But now all is well! Last week Xavier went to church camp for the first time! Such a big kid. He came home exhausted and excited. He had a great time!

So for the first time all summer long, we have all three of just our kiddos home with us! We've been pretty lazy the past couple of days too! Yesterday I didn't even get dressed until about 6:30 when I wanted to run into town for a little bit.
I did do about 10 loads of laundry though!

Today we took it easy again. We just hung out around the house. Xavier actually went to karate tonight for the first time in nearly a month! The rest of the week will be pretty busy as well. Tomorrow Paxton is getting a haircut. Then we have church tomorrow night. I'm starting to teach our preschool Teamkid program and I'm excited about it! I love the kids in the class. Thursday Paxton has a checkup for his surgery in LR and we'll be gone most of the day from that. Then we have NOTHING for Friday or Saturday! So excited. We haven't had a free weekend since probably the end of April!

Also, could Schlabachclans email(efirdgal@yahoo.com) or comment me so I can get added to your blog?!

Power Outage

So on Friday afternoon a huge storm blew through Arkansas. The kids and I had to wait out the monster of a storm at a gas station about 30 miles from home! Talk about an interesting afternoon! I didn't really know/think that it had gotten too bad, but we lost our second trampoline and a tree is down on our land. And apparently tons of people in the area are without power and have been since Friday. Since our church is one of the places without power, we are home this morning. We got a call this morning at 7 while I was already in the shower, that it had been canceled.

Here are some pictures of recent events in our household. Nevermind. I'm on the old computer and there are no recent pictures on it! Have a great week!

It's been really quiet around here the past two days. The big kids are at Nona's house this week while Paxton is staying here. They've had swim lessons yesterday and today and are already swimming! They're both so excited about that they call the minute lessons are over to tell us about it!

Needless to say the house has been quiet with them gone! We had VBS last week. The kids loved going to church every night and riding along the Boomerang Express! I helped teach the 2-4 year old class. They were SO cute. We chugga chugga choo chooed everywhere we went. They loved it! Who am I kidding.....I loved it too!
