Wordy Wednesday: 8/10/11

Last week was a whirlwind.  I feel like life is spiraling out of control lately!  I need to figure out how to take control of the wheel!

We took the little kids tubing in Helen on Saturday.  I tried to get pictures and video, but the camera batteries were completely dead.  UGH!  Here's a picture of us in the car on the way there.

Afterwards, we went to my cousin Brenda's house for a "movie under the stars".   The kids sat through the movie.  I'm not sure if it was because it was their first outdoor experience or if they were just plain exhausted from a fun day on the river.  
One of the sisters from their congregation had a popcorn machine, so the kids were happy to help get it ready.

We brought our blankets and laid on the grass in the side yard.  It was so fun!  We had a really great time!

 Lightning bugs came out just before the movie was starting and Sissy was so excited!  For some reason, we don't have any lightning bugs at our house.  I think it's because of the tree frogs.  I think they're eating them.  So you can imagine how excited she was to chase after them in the field!


Monday we went to a meeting at the Library in Douglasville to learn more about the K12 Georgia Cyber Academy for Wooley's 9th grade.  Thursday we are meeting Sissy's Kindergarten teacher.  Friday Wooley has an appointment at the doctor for a physical.  I need to make dental appointments for all the kids for check ups.  I'm not sure who's going to have cavities and who's going to need major work.  We'll see...

Have a great week!

Tubing and an outdoor movie afterwards... What a wonderful family day you all had. I know things are busy right now, but hang in there. Things will settle down in to a routine once school is underway.

I love the idea of an outdoor movie. I bet everyone involved had a great time!
