It's Summertime Funtime!

Summer has officially commenced in our home.
The children are shooting each other with Nerf guns quietly playing in the other room.
Here's what's been up.

* Ryan started his new job on Monday.
He came home a little overwhelmed the first day from information overload.
It's a huge career change for him, and I know he'll thrive like he always does.
I'm very proud of him, but I guess y'all already knew that.
After getting to spend every day together for the past 2 weeks,
I have really missed him during the day.
Okay.
Enough sappiness.

* On a disappointing note,
we have to put the building of our new home on a temporary hold
after finding out that the tenants in our rental property
must purchase the house before we can purchase another one.
They want to buy it from us
but need a little more time to get their credit scores up.
No worries.
We'll wait.
Time is something we have a lot of!
If the lot we wanted is gone when it's time to buy,
something better will come our way.
That's the way life goes!

* Austin started his golf lessons this week.
Look how cute The Teenager is all golfed up.
Check out the big guy's new set of clubs.
A very special gift from Carol.
Thanks, Grandma!

* During the summer,
the boys have a lot of down time.
A lot.
This is what Carter decided to do with his on Tuesday.
He said he wanted to sort his drawers.
Guess who got stuck with the sorting.
Yep.
Yours truly.
Thanks.
I have to come up with some things for us to do during the day,
or I think I just might go out of my mind with all these clowns.
The older they get,
the harder it is to find activities that will appeal to all their different ages.
For instance, Carter wants to see some movies that Trysten, Preston and Austin think are "for babies"
and Austin wants to see things that I don't feel are appropriate for the little guys
and I'm not about to loosen up on that so I'm stuck.
See my dilemma?

* Speaking of movies,
 Ryan and I went and saw Hangover II last week.
I don't care what anyone says.
We loved it.
We laughed the entire time.
I will say that if there was a rating past R,
this movie is definitely worthy of it.
Just sayin.

* Trysten arrived last night for a whole week!
A whole week of having the entire family together is greatness.
Looking forward to the weekend!

That's it for now, friends!
I know it's nothing exciting, but that's all I got!
Have a great week!!

Jann: because everything including 2 cars are in his name and I wouldn't be on the note. Long story. It's so stupid because our monthly mortgage payment would be equal to what we're paying now of may $100 more and we're just fine! It's all the people that have gone into foreclosure that are ruining it for the responsible people. Oh well! It's only temporary!

I told the same to Blake.....that it should have been NC-17. Seriously! Still haven't recovered from it. Did love it, too, though.

Summer is one of those blessings and curses. It is so fabulous to have those babies home until you start running out of things to do. Although, I love just being home. Good to know about The Hangover. I am certain I will not see it until it is on video.

He looks so cute in his golf outfit!
Bummer about the house but everything happens for reasons.

Sara said...

Can't wait to hear how the golf lessons go!

So happy for Ryan and the new job. He'll do awesome! It'll just take some time to get in the groove.

House - it'll happen when it's supposed to and be all the better!

Yippee for summer! Although I'm hating this 100 degree weather already. I need to go to Colorado for the summer.

Good luck keeping them all entertained! Last night I was thinking how thankful I am Chatty has Boys and Girls Club this summer!
