What a week!

My goodness what a week. Monday the kids and I went to the library. We had overdue books & I felt really bad about the fines (we all had them). But our favorite librarian said not to look at it as a bad thing...the money from the fines was used to buy new books so we were actually helping the library. LOL! What a positive spin on it. We each got new books and the kids had their summer reading logs checked for week 1. I got 3 books to read for the adult reading program...all about Southern authors. Right now I'm reading Gap Creek: The Story of a Marriage by Robert Morgan. So far it is pretty good. Later in the afternoon I had to go for a mammogram...oh what fun. ;-) Actually the women's center is very nice and the technician I had was very sweet so it wasn't too bad. I'm sure my primary will have the results when I go see her on the 14th.

On Tuesday we went to our homeschool park day and Morgan had a couple stories for the authors' club. The kids read their stories & then went to play. The moms hung out & talked. Some had to leave early and then Morgan, Alex, Tayler & Autumn decided to walk around the walking path. I walked part of it so I could keep an eye on them. They wanted to go alone but part of the path goes far back where you can't see from the sitting areas. I walked inside the path but not too close so I could see them & they could see me (Alex still needs that) but I wasn't "with" them. LOL! The things a Mama has to do. :-) The girls decided they wanted a sleepover so their mom & I talked a bit and said we would check with the dads to make sure everyone was good with it. They were.

So Wednesday we met up in the middle and we brought Tayler & Autumn home with us. We all grabbed lunch & watched Morgan at homeschool bowling. We stopped at Lowe's on the way home for sand to help level the ground for the pool. One of the guys told us about levelling sand (versus sandbox sand) ... works better and is cheaper ... yea! We got several bags. Then we stopped at Blockbuster and used a giftcard from my mom for some movies. The 3 girls picked out Night at the Museum, Alex picked out Author and the Invisibles, and Corey & I picked out Mini's First Time. They were all good movies. The girls stayed up late giggling.

Thursday there was a lot of playing games, K'Nex, video games, Barbies, dancing & singing and finishing up movies, talking about the historical figures in the museum movie. At 3pm we met up in the middle again so the girls could go home. Corey and I did some more work with the levelling sand and the area is almost level...but we need more sand. We will get more today & hopefully finish up. We want to use our pool! Last night I let Morgan set up a blog on a special site. She's thrilled about it. I'm not going to link to it but we will let people know what it is as she blogs.

Today we are playing catch up with a lot of stuff. Tonight we have plans to have dinner with my mom at the new Chinese buffet & bar that just opened up near us. Then she is going to have Alex sleepover at her house for some special one-on-one time. He is excited and has already packed his overnight bag. We are thinking about going to a movie and maybe trying the new ice cream shop that has opened nearby.

Oooooooh forgot to mention. I forgot to weigh in on Monday morning but remembered on Tuesday morning. So far my total weight loss is 17 pounds. I'm thrilled!!
