Keeping up with...Family (Weekly Wrap 6/9 - 6/15 - Part 1)

Friday (6/9) was the last day of sports and arts camp for AJ and Daniel.  Jodi drove them to the park and they were able to get into art for the day.  They also all wore their swim suits so they could play on the slip and slide.  They had a great week at the camp - I am so thankful for this mission in our town!  While they were at camp, Zak and I ran a few errands and then went to the Garver Y so I could observe a class I will be teaching a few times in the next few months.  I had a great time doing Zumba with some friends and he enjoyed the "new" childcare room.
After class, Zak and I had a quick lunch in the car and then headed to the Gahanna Y for his make up swim lessons that were cancelled yesterday.  He swam for a little bit by himself before class, did a great job in class and then swam with me in the outside pool for about an hour.  We had so much fun!!  Jodi picked up the other boys from camp and brought them to her house to play for a while.  I picked them up and we headed home to get ready for the pizza party celebration for camp.
We had a great family night at the celebration.  We had free Jets pizza for dinner and enjoyed seeing a lot of our friends at the church.  Then we watched a fun video of the week and learned a little more about what the teens all did during the week of service.  After the celebration we headed to a new to us ice cream place, The Dairy Hut.  It was delicious, we all gave it 2 thumbs up!!  I enjoyed checking out a local place instead of the chains we normally go to.  By the time we got home, we were all exhausted so we got the boys to bed and followed very soon after them.

Saturday (6/10) started with all of us sleeping in after a busy week!  Then we all got started on our busy weekend.  Adrian took Daniel to his baseball game where they won again.  Daniel played pitcher in the last inning and made a great play to get a batter out at first.  I took AJ and Zak to Zak's last soccer class for this session.  It again was parent participation so I played with him.  It was a fun start to our morning.

After all of our morning sports were done, we came home to start working around the house.  I had to finish up some shopping so I ran out to do that while Adrian took the boys to play mini golf at Magic Mountain.  They had a great time and Zak got a hole in one!!  They played a few video games while they were there as well and then came home so we could grill out steak for dinner.  We finished up a few chores and had a relaxing night at home.  We did have a little excitement when we caught the ice cream man on our street - we all enjoyed our ice cream!!  And after the boys went to bed, Adrian and I had some wine and movie night since we were too tired to do it last night.  We watched "Dr. Strange" which was awesome!  It's not one of my favorite Marvel movies, it was very cerebral, but it was still really cool and great effects!

Sunday (6/11) We all slept in again, it's becoming a regular Sunday occurrence.  We got a few things done around the house, then headed out to church together.  The boys are loving being in service together in the children's ministry, especially when I'm back there with them.  After church, we came home for a quick lunch and then headed to the movie theater to finally see "Captain Underpants."  The boys loved every minute of it, although AJ did say the book was better.  Adrian and I thought it was just OK, not as clever as some of the other kids movies we've seen recently.
After the movie, we came home and started prepping for a very busy week.  I cooked a whole chicken so we have it ready to eat all week.  I also packed up our back packs for Cub Scout camp and got our lunchboxes and water bottles ready to go in the morning.  We finished up the last of our chores, had meatball subs for dinner and relaxed a little before heading up to bed as early as possible.  We have five early mornings ahead of us so we are trying to get to sleep as early as possible this week!
