We’ve been so busy lately. The kids finished school a few weeks ago and the summer has been really busy so far. We had the parish picnic, which I work all weekend, to start off our busy summer. We play outside a lot. The bugs are a problem so we have to do some pest removal soon. If there weren’t as many mosquitoes and gnats, we could play outside a lot more. It even seems to bother the dogs!
The girls have been in camp the past 2 weeks. Jemma went to a baking/cooking camp and had a lot of fun. Both girls were in soccer camp this week (more on that soon) and the weather was perfect. The rain held off until the last day when it was ending. Joley goes to sewing camp next week. She’ll learn how to machine sew, hand sew, crochet, and other fun crafts. I think she’ll really enjoy it. Johnny has been home playing video games. He chose not to go to camp this summer.
After next week we won’t have much going on. I am not working as many hours so I will be at home with the kids more and get to enjoy my time with them. As it stands, I work one day a week right now, which isn’t good for our finances for sure. I may have to look for another job to make ends meet. Thankfully, Johnny is at home to stay with the girls while I do work so I don’t have to find a babysitter and pay for that.
What are you up to this summer? Do you have any big plans? We don’t take vacations but my hit up the zoo or other local events to have some fun!
