Life has been crazy lately. Last week we went to the beach with a good portion of my family (all but two of my siblings--with a family the size of mine that is a good portion). We had a great week in the sun. We arrived home Saturday only to turn around on Sunday and head to an overnight excursion with Blueprints, the spectacular young adults group from our church. Yes, we are still considered young adults. As opposed to the 50 and older group, I guess. (I must add that I'm still well under 40, but there are people in Blueprints who are not.) Although we had a blast with our friends, I'm not sure this extra little trip helped with the slowing down and simplifying of my life. The rest of this week I've been up to my neck in laundry, planning a surprise party for our Young Adults Pastor, who was just ordained, getting ready for a cookout we're having tomorrow night . . . and I have still not finished unpacking. I am so tired. Such a rough life, I know.
In other news, our chickens were killed before we even brought them home! A friend was keeping them for us and a fox got the better of them. So we will have to wait a little longer before we have fresh eggs. All this rain has prevented us from planting anything in our garden so far. And I am planning to look into some kind of disaster relief missions trip to the tornado-ravaged southern region of our country.
Also, I am very disappointed in Arnold Schwarzenegger. I'm not sure why. I guess I just like to see long-standing celebrity marriages and when I find out it was a sham it bothers me. But that's all I'm going to say about Arnold. The subject doesn't even deserve a mention on my blog.
Now, some photos from the beach!
All eight of my parents' grandchildren!
Until Cal decided to ditch them.
Back home, Camilla pushed Adrian on the swing yesterday.
Love his expression!
Now I really need to run. I think my son has been eating crumbs from the floor!
