Keeping Up With...Family (Summer Week 4 - June 20 thru June 26)

This week was very similar to last week with lots of scheduled things and not a whole lot of time for much else.  However it started with some excitement!  Last week when I was driving around the air conditioning went out on our van for the second time in less than a year.  That coupled with multiple other issues led us to buying a brand new van!
Our Odyssey was a good car for us for almost 7 years and close to 100,000 miles but it was time to part ways.  We went big and got a brand new 2015 Town & Country with all the bells and whistles, including a blue ray player, heated steering wheel and camera when you're driving in reverse.  I LOVE driving around in it!!  I'm very thankful we were in the position to be able to upgrade to such an amazing van.

Adrian spent all day Saturday taking care of the car buying so unfortunately we had to spend a lot of Sunday working around the house.  But we did have some fun since it was Father's Day.  We got Dunkin Donuts for breakfast, went out to Orange Leaf for a treat in the afternoon & grilled steaks for dinner.  We also gave him our presents, a Scooby Doo video game (AJ), Mario stuffed animal (Zak), Bowser stuffed animal (Daniel) & a bathing suit (me).

Monday thru Thursday were super busy for us again!  Daniel had week 2 of Safety Town where he learned about house safety, fire safety and toured a local fire station.  He also had a nice program for graduation on Thursday.  Zak really enjoyed seeing the police officers and firemen each day.  While Daniel was there, we ran errands again.  AJ has become quite good at following my list while we go grocery shopping.  He is very strict, won't let me buy anything not on the list.

Also this week all three boys went to Vacation Bible School at the church across the street, Eastpointe Christian Church.  They really enjoyed themselves, although Zak was very tired by the end of the week since they were up late each night.  Adrian and I enjoyed some time alone together on Monday night, then he had to work late the other 3 nights.  I was able to go to my PTO meeting on Tuesday, then have some time to myself on Wednesday and Thursday.

After the super busy schedule we kept Monday thru Thursday, Friday was a planned stay at home day for us.  We did all have to go to the Y at night because I was teaching a Zumba class and Adrian wasn't home from work yet.  The boys had a great time there so I'm hoping to get to a few morning classes next month.
