a trio of highlights

It is amazing how an hour or two of conversation with another adult can rejuvenate me - even if that conversation takes place while kids run amuck and have toddler tantrums over toys. (pretty nifty alliteration there, eh?)  I was able to visit with two different friends and their kids over the last two days.  Happy summer vacation to me. :)
Note to self: start taking pictures of self with friends. Or at least of friends.  I realize I never take pictures of my friends or me or us together.  I'm not sure why this is, so here is an oldie but goodie of a friend I don't get to see very often. (I only see this friend once a year at the most, so sadly she was not one of the friends I saw this week.)

In other happy news, I am lined up to do childcare for two little ones whose parents go to the same church as us. Their kids are similar ages to mine, so it may feel like I have two sets of twins at my house some days.  Pray for me.  :)  Just kidding - - I am pretty excited about this opportunity and how it seems to be coordinating itself for both my family needs and theirs.

The best news of all today, The Hubs is done with his eight weeks of summer classes.  He has three (I think) weeks off of class, though he still will be working in the afternoons/evenings.  I think Bubby will be thrilled to have Daddy around more in the morning, and perhaps I can send the two of them to the pool once or twice before summer ends.

  1. Your childcare setup sounds ideal! Wish I could do something like that. I know tons of folks at our church who have babies galore, but getting the word out and getting them to let me take care of their kiddos is another matter! haha It's not a trust issue with me, just something about not enough advertising and then most folks don't want to pay for a babysitter or a nanny....they want to the least amount possible even though it's to take care of their most prized "possessions," their little ones!


Thanks for stopping by and sharing your thoughts with me.
