Sunday (6/18) Happy Father's Day!! We all slept in a little and then had a lazy Sunday morning of coffee, TV and video games. We gave Adrian his Father's Day gifts early since Daniel had a baseball tournament and we weren't sure how the rest of our day would go. We got him "Plank" the board game he wanted and a new chair for sports, camping, etc. I also told him that his tickets for Origins yesterday were covered as part of his gift. I made turkey reubens for lunch and then it was time to head out for Daniel's first game.
I got a bunch of stuff done around the house
while they were gone. They didn't get back from the field until after
9pm so it was a later night than we were expecting. We finally got the
boys down to bed and Adrian and I finished off with a little leftover
ice cream cake and some DVR. Not the Father's Day we had planned but it
seems like he still had a good weekend and that's what's important.
Monday (6/19) We were trying to get back to real life
after our awesome week at day camp, but it's another busy week for us. I
had to wake everyone up this morning so we could get to the Y on time
to sub a Barre class for my friend. It was a great class but it was
tough after not working out at all for over a week. We ran home after
the Y to have a quick lunch and pack up for a busy afternoon and
evening. Then we left again and I dropped AJ and Daniel off at Math
Plus for their favorite week of the summer - Minecraft camp! They had a
blast using strategy (and math) to solve different problems the teacher
class, we headed out to the baseball field for Daniel's championship
game. I was volunteering in the concession stand so I watched from
there. In the bottom of the second inning a thunderstorm blew in and we
had a rain delay. Adrian and I decided we needed to take AJ and Zak
home since everything was wet and muddy. So I left to take them home
and get some things done around the house while Adrian stayed to watch
the game. It was an awesome game but Daniel's team came up one run
short, 13-12. They still won the league championship, just not the
tournament. After a long day, we watched a little TV and then went to
swimming, we changed into dry clothes and went to pick up AJ and
Daniel. We then headed to Family Video to get our 10 free rentals and 2
free pizzas for good grades. Each boy picked a video game and I got 2
pizzas and cheesy bread for them. We jumped in the car and headed to
Krispy Kreme to continue redeeming freebies and get our 12 free donuts.
Now I have dinner, dessert, breakfast tomorrow & lunch tomorrow
covered!! We ran home and they ate a quick dinner of pizza and donuts
while I got us ready to head out to class number 2, subbing a Zumba
class for my friend.
(6/21) started slow and lazy with a rare morning that we had nothing
planned. We all slept in until almost 8am and then hung around the
house all morning. The boys played their rented video games before we
need to return them later today while I cleaned up a bit around the
house. We had lunch and headed out to day 3 of Minecraft camp for AJ
and Daniel. While they were at camp, Zak and I met our friends at Chick
Fil A for a play date. The kids had fun playing in the (sound proof)
play area while Nikki and I chatted and watched Zumba videos. It was a
great play date!
(6/22) we had another fairly slow start although I did have to get to
work by 10am. I taught my class and then we ran home for a quick lunch
before dropping AJ and Daniel off to day 4 of Minecraft camp. Zak and I
headed straight to the Y to do some swimming while they were at camp.
We swam outside for about an hour, then came inside for his last lesson
of the summer. His teacher from last session saw him and commented that
he really can't believe that is the same kid. He's doing great -
jumping in, going under, swimming, floating, etc. I'm really proud of
After swimming, we went back to pick up AJ and
Daniel from camp. Then we had about an hour to kill before my second
class of the day. We ran a few quick errands and then met Adrian at my
job so I could teach and he could take the boys home. When I got home
from work we shockingly were all home with nothing to do. We thought
about going to a park or something but decided a night on the couch
sounded way better.
