Peek Through Last Week (July 18-24)

Sunday- While I was getting Ammon clothes out to wear today, I found his candy stash. He likes candy but he doesn’t crave it like I do. He can have one small piece every few days and be satisfied. I’m not sure he should trust his mom knowing where his stash is.

Monday– I took the boys school clothes shopping today. We stopped by McDonald’s for lunch first. I needed some food to get me through the next few hours. At their age I still have a lot of say in what they wear, so that went smoothly. They both had money to spend, so we spent a lot of time hunting for the perfect Bakugans for them to battle with. Then they spent time in the car, between stores, arguing over whos Bakugans had the most power points. Is there really any way to know who wins a Bakugan battle?

Tuesday– First day of school for Zach and Ammon. It was hard for me to send them to school today. They only had 2 1/2 weeks of Summer this year, but because of the track they’re on they’ll be off again in 2 1/2 weeks. I know, it doesn’t make sense to me either, but I’m glad they’ll have more time off for Summer. I really dislike year-round school. If it’s ever suggested in your area fight it with all your might. Ammon was excited to go to school all day, but it’s going to be an adjustment for me.

Wednesday- Have you seen these bracelets everywhere? Why can’t I be the one to come up with some simple, inexpensive fad that everyone swarms to the stores to buy? Since I didn’t come up with the idea, I’ll just have to swarm to the store and spend my money like everyone else. They are pretty cute and my kids love them. But I do have to blame my mom for getting my kids collecting them. She’s the one who introduced them to my kids. Now we have handfuls of them in our house.

Thursday– Emilee, Amanda and I picked the boys up from school, then headed to the zoo for a few hours. Boy, did we pick a hot day to walk around the zoo. I’m so glad they have those water misters everywhere. The kids were under them every time I turned around. We watched the baby elephant play for a while. So cute, I wonder how much she weighs already. We rode the train and played on the playground for a while. Then we went to pick up the kids Uncle Max out by the airport. He was in town just for the day, then was heading back to Georgia and to my sister and the kids. Whitney, Ty and Adam all came for dinner too. It was nice to visit with Max and hear about things at home. I miss not living close to my family. I hope my sister can come out with him next time.

Friday- Another day at Lagoon. The kids love it! Once a year is usually enough for me, but here I am for the second time in 2 weeks. I am reminded once again how much my kids have grown up. My baby can now ride on every ride at Lagoon.  He wants me to go with him on all the rides so at least I get to enjoy the ride with him. And marval at how big my little guy is getting. And try not to cry when I think about it too much.

Saturday– Pioneer Day! Time to celebrate Utah’s heritage. Spending time with family, cooking, eating, playing, swimming, watching fireworks, just being together. What a wonderful day.

    Dollar Tree has those bracelets now–I think 12 in a pack. All kinds. When my granddaughter first started wearing them months ago, I searched everywhere for them and everyone was sold out. Finally, had to break down and go to the dreaded mall. $5 for 24. And now the Dollar Tree sells them. Story of my life.
