Monday Update

Wow, its amazing how quickly time is flying. T's last day of school is in about 2.5 weeks, on June 8. A Tuesday. She'll have her end of year show and "graduation" and then is off for the summer. I have signed her up for summer camp, which is conveniently located on the school's grounds. Sounds like she'll be having alot of fun. That starts on Monday, 6/14.

We had a blessedly calm weekend.

On Friday we went to dinner at Benihana's. t promptly put her fingers on the hot grill, then proceeded to spend the rest of the evening with her finger in my cold diet coke. Luckily, no real damage was done to her fingers. Not even a blister. I hadn't realized that the grill was on and heating up, until dot went to grab her hands off and spilled her wine all over the grill. It all went up with a big whoosh of steam and bubbles when the cold wine hit the really hot middle of the grill. Luckily, the sides of the grill, where T planted her fingers, was not as hot. Yikes.

Funny, how compared to my parents' lunacy...our "calm weekend" now includes things like this! Its all about perspective, right?

Did some shopping for summer camp sneakers for T, and on Sunday helped my dad organize info for his taxes. Dot is in Houston this week, and will return at the end of the week, so I'm praying nothing explodes.

I'm annoyed b/c I think something is wrong with the USB ports in my laptop. Both of them. I can't download photos, nor sync my phone. Nada. Zip. Zilch.

I'm finding that its really not that much fun blogging, without photos, right? Hopefully I'll figure something out soon.

Yeah....hope your USB portr starts cooperating soon. No fun indeed.

Wishing you an uneventful week ahead. ;)

Congrats to your little, soon-to-be- graduate!

Well, I know nothing about laptops but USB Ports sure sounds "Navy" to me since my son served in the Navy 25 years. Here's hoping you have a calm week and no blowups. That T is moving right on along. xox

I signed Sara up for summer camp is well. Between summer camp and kindergarten, she's most excited about getting a lunch box. Shopping ahead!
BTW, we were at Disney on Sunday at Hollywood studios. It was HOT! I was a sweaty mess.
Still adore that park though - stay in touch and if you head that way late fall, let me know - we may try to meet up with you and do a night at one of the hotels/resorts. Sara needs to see the fireworks at Magic Kingdom and I'd like a day that wasn't as rushed. Or hot. Blah.
Wishing you some days of tranquility.

It's so hard to believe our girls will be starting Kindergarten soon. Mae-Lei starts July 9, so no time for summer camps here. We pretty much get VBS, a couple weeks of swim lessons, a trip to Ohio for the 4th of July and Red, White and Boom, then home for first day of Kindergarten. YIKES!!!

A marvelous plan was made in the stars,
to create a miracle across the ocean so far....
Then entwine and weave all the hopes and labor,
it would take to bring us this joy called "Taylor"....
Now three lives are blessed and somewhere in the stars,
the planners are smiling, as we all are.
