Catch up

I have so much catching up to do that I don't really even know where to start. I could talk about school being over..
I have to say that I am very happy to not be meeting the bus at 8 am each day. I am also happy that my kids now (for the most part) let me sleep in too. I really enjoy a good sleep in!
I also could talk about Erik and Laurie's birthday party. Yep..they are both a year older (notice Laurie was in town for a fun visit). Happy Birthday guys!
I could write about hosting book club. I was excited because I found the author's blog and emailed her. She emailed me back with fun information about the book to read to the book club. (You should read this book too btw)
I could write about the super fun visit with Josh and Sarah plus kids. They drove through on their way to Montana from Indiana. We swam, rode rides at the MOA and ate yummy food. Emily had a great time with Paige and Max! Can't wait to see them again and then they will get their own post.
I could write to say that gymnastics has started for Andrew and Emily
and tennis has started for Ryan
I could include a fun story about bowling with friends and ME beating Erik. I have to enjoy that one because it won't ever happen again! My great win included 4 strikes (well one of the strikes was technically a spare..but it was a spare that involved a gutter ball..so I am counting it as a strike)!
I could write about taking six kids bowling by myself. We actually had a fun time and the kids were really good!

So get excited because summer has started...it is going to be busy. It is going to be filled with friends and family and fun. I cannot wait to share it with EVERYONE!

You are such a fun mom, Cathy. Also, your sister was in MN? Hm.. I just looked at pictures of her from some party in Provo... she gets around, that one (don't ask me how cause I have no idea how I found them... of FB, I think). I'm also listening to a bunch of podcasts that your brother is on - he's good. One of the few that I actually enjoy listening to. Anyway - it all makes me miss... you :).

thank you for taking us bowling. Your the funnest mom!

I've missed you posting, so yay you're back! I knew you weren't just sitting around, so thanks for the recap on what you've been up to lately. You are always up to fun adventures. Can't wait to see what else you have planned for the summer! :)

Don't forget that I came in 2nd...can't believe we beat the guys. I guess they've been ill-trained by all of the Wii bowling.
