Some of you might have started to wonder if I had fallen off the face of the Earth or something. Well...I haven't. I have just been soooo busy, sitting down to blog kinda fell by the wayside. Not that I have time now - that's SO far from the truth - but I wanted to let you know a few things that I have been up to!
Girls' Weekend 2008
Now most of this weekend is top secret because "What happens at Lake of the Ozarks, stays at Lake of the Ozarks" but I will bullet the top events for those who were there (just as a reminder) ;) And let you know that it was a GREAT time well spent by all!!!! (Tooo bad it only comes once a year!) :(
- A flashing neon sign above my head
- Add Brad to Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John
- Drink being bought for R.
- The Blue Room
Visit from Suz & Joe
A wonderful college friend, who I had not seen in 5 years, came down with her husband and fam this weekend. It was like we had never even skipped a beat.
That's what I really enjoy about a true friend....that there isn't hard feelings for the time that we have allowed to get away, just joy that we have this time to spend now.
They have 3 kids - 3, 5, & 7 - which were perfect playmates for my boys who are 3 & 5. Plus Joe was such a dear to allow Suz and I to go out on the town the first night while he stayed at my house with all five kids (even with Sam balling his eyes out).
Saturday we headed to Lakeside Forest Wilderness Area - This is a hiking trail located right in the heart of Branson consisting of 319 hand-laid stone steps. How I attended 4 years of college here and then lived another 10 years on top of that here and still had NO idea about this place, I will never know! Thank goodness for Suzanne's gentle prodding to get me to join them because we had a wonderful time!!
Now... the fun is gone and reality has struck. I have been heading back to my classroom to make it look all clean and fresh for a new bunch of kiddos.
Normally this time of year = excitement for the budding new school year. I guess, this summer, I just had too much fun. So... the thought of being trapped inside isn't exactly getting me all giddy inside.
