So the boys are over at Grandma Carol's today. I just had to do it. We were invited to a Backyard Carnival put together by one of the homeschooling families in our area. It was very cute. The girls (plus 2 of their little girl friends) went around and played mini-bowling, ring toss, the fishing pond, the clothes pin drop, and football, beanbag and golf ball throws. It was a lot of fun! Of course, we had to fight off all the bees...very common at this time of year. The bees are hungry and they know death is imminent with summer waning.
Now we're off to the wading pool. As if I don't have anything better to do. Well, actually I don't. Laundry, bills, and dishes are never better things to do. They are necessary, but not always comparable to sitting at the wading pool avoiding getting splashed and saving overturned babies from the 1 foot of water.
In any case, I'm a sucker for a good time!
