Tropical Storm

Let's see, what have we been doing? On Saturday, Daran and Rachel washed my car and cleaned it all out, it looks brand new. Then they went to run some errands, then they went to see Karate Kid with her karate school people. Then we went over to Nanny and Papa's house for dinner.

Sunday was Father's Day, but we didn't really do anything exciting. We just did some stuff around the house and Daran packed and got ready for our trip.

Rachel is in VBS this week at her day school. She seems to be enjoying it and I know that she loves being with other kids.

So we are supposed to go on a cruise on Saturday, but there is a tropical storm heading towards right where we are going. So we are going to have to wait and see what happens.

Thursday was the last day of swimming lessons for her 2 week class. I might sign her up again when we come back from our cruise. She did really well at swimming lessons. She's a lot better about putting her head under water, although she still gets a little bit nervous and makes sure her teacher is next to her.
Friday we cleaned, she likes to help me clean. Then we went to the grocery store. A pretty uneventful day.
I hate my stupid camera. The batteries are always dying and then we have to reset the date. That is obviously not the right date. It should be 6/17/2010.

14, 15, 16

The days of summer run together don't they? We have been doing swimming lessons in the morning, a little shopping after swimming, and trying to take naps in the afternoon. We also do schoolwork, read books, and hang out together. I love summer, I just wish it didn't go by so fast.

Nana and Papa left to go to New Mexico this morning. They will be gone for about a month. Rachel is sad.

June 12 and 13

On Saturday we had everyone over for Papa's birthday. It was me, Daran, Rachel, Doug, Eleanor, Elizabeth, Benjamin, Nana and of course Papa. I made tacos, which I made last year too. Wow, I'm creative. It was nice to have everyone over. I like having people over to the house even though I stress about it being clean.

On Sunday we didn't do much. Just hung out and cleaned a little bit and did laundry.

June 10 and 11

On Thursday we had swimming lessons in the morning and then went to get my car worked on in the afternoon. We were at the car place an hour and a half and Rachel was pretty good. Then we came home and tried to take a nap, but it wasn't happening.

Today is Papa's birthday and we went to eat at Applebee's for lunch. It was me, Rachel, Nana, Papa and Doug. Then the girls went to Kohl's for some shopping.

We are also still working on school and reading. The summer is already going by too fast.

Today was swimming lessons in the rain, followed by a trip to the bank, a trip to eat at Schlotsky's and then shopping at Kohl's. Then we came home and worked on school stuff. Daran took her to karate and they signed up officially.

Day 2

I love summer! I love getting to spend time with Rachel and not having to rush off to work of fix dinner or clean or go to the grocery store, etc. Today we went to swimming lessons, then to Chick fil A and then to Target. Then we worked on school for a while. Rachel loves to do school work, it's so funny and cute. Sometimes she won't even stop working. Right now as I am trying to write this, she wants me to go do school with her. Seriously! I guess I am going to do school.

Pre-school graduation/Summer

Rachel's pre-school graduation was on May 21st. It was so sweet and they all looked so cute. She said that she wanted to be a nurse, I hadn't heard that one yet, usually she says she wants to be a dentist.
Today was our first official day of summer. I actually got out of school on May 28th, but had to go last week for curriculum writing. So today we started with swimming lessons, and then we've been cleaning the toys in her closet.
