Crazy times.

It seems as though we've been trying to pack in as much as possible in the last days before school starts. I have no idea where last week went. Tuesday we had visitors from South Carolina! My best friend, Nicole, stopped by with the kids on her way to Galesburg. Wednesday we trekked on over to Macomb for one of Brooklyn's friends half-birthday party. We had a great time. Jack had a friend there, too, so everyone had fun! Thursday, I have absolutely no clue about. Friday, I painted a wall. Saturday, Jack went to his first birthday party here in Dunlap. We had a fun dinner with some of Zac's co-workers that night. Sunday, Zac and I went to see Rent over at Eastlight in East Peoria with my sis, bro-in-law, and cousin. Today I took the kids to Chuck E. Cheese for a "back-to-school treat," did some shopping for Jack, bought a TV for our room, and that brings us to now! I know, I know. The excitement of it all.
I have some more painting to do, but I've decided to hold off until school starts because the kids really want to help. Tomorrow we are hitting Niabi Zoo in the Quad Cities and having a Girls Night Out in G-burg, Wednesday I'm hoping for a playdate, Thursday the kids are going out to lunch with G-ma and G-pa for a "back-to-school treat" and Brooklyn has her Kindergarten Open House, Friday, the boys head out for their annual camping trip...
Gee. I think it will be kind of nice for the kids to go to school. Hopefully things will slow down a bit!
Anyway, you'll have to forgive me for the lack of posting. We've obviously been busy.

Julie, I really miss your smiling face. I would really like to get together with you and maybe your mom sometime. Maybe I could bring my grandkids when you have a playdate with Bethany and Ava sometime. Let me know what you think. Deb
