Aaaaannnnnnddddd...We're Off!.....again...

This has been a CRAZY summer...well when your husband is a Student Minister...all the summers are crazy. This one seems especially crazy though.

We started the summer with one week off between school and VBS and then there was one week after VBS and then Paul was off to Youth Camp and I was off to my moms for a visit. We were at my moms for 10 days and Paul eventually caught up with us there so that we could go to a wedding. Then there was the "Fire" Trip home. We just got back home last Monday and here we are again...today (Monday...exactly one week later) leaving again on the Jr. Sr. Retreat. So we will be spending 3 fun-filled days at Lake Bastrop with the Juniors and Seniors from our church. Only to be home for 2 weeks before spending 10 days in Ecuador and then home for 2 weeks before school starts!

You may be asking yourself why in the wide wide world of mike I might be dragging all three of my children on this trip...well I'll tell you...

Paul needs someone to cook. Yep...I'm the "Camp Chef". I can do amazing things with a grill and some foil pans...I assure you. So alas...I have spent the better part of the last 24 hours doing laundry, gathering clothes, swimsuits, pajamas, floaties, sunscreen, underwear, shoes, towels, sheets, toiletries AND food for three days for 15 teenagers plus our kids...

Yes, Ladies and Gentlemen...I am amazing. Thank you. Thank you. No applause please.

So Paul and I had a talk last night and he's going to take the rest of the week off and we are going to get my house back to working order and probably paint the kids rooms over the weekend. Why? You ask...because it's what I want to do...and I think I deserve it...OK? So I will blog when I get back and let you know how tired I really am. Amen...and Amen.
