Goings On

The summer weeks keep going by, and our days are filled with that easy-going, spontaneous kind of adventure that only come in summer days. Few of our family exploits have made it to the pages of this blog (the screen of this blog?).

Oh Blog. Poor neglected blog.

Without any pictures to show you of our latest happenings, I will tell you in short form what they are.

Summer school is out for Charlie, and I realize just how much I miss him being home. Just three-and-a-half, and I wonder if all this hurried educating is really worth a mommy's empty arms. (Or a bit of family time!) Ah, life.

Have you ever tried to go on a gluten free/casein free diet cold turkey, all at once, with no plan to speak of. Ooo! Me, me! I'm trying a GF/CF diet to see if it will help me with my asthma, allergies, and ADD. So far I have had a huge headache for a week, and nauseousness, but on the positive side I am having improvement in my ability to focus.

There has been lots of time to exercise as I let the kids out to play in our yard-with-no-fence. I kind of feel like a mother Emu running after chicks in all directions. (Do Emu chicks have the propensity to run amuck?) Our boys are yet to learn the meaning of "stay on the grass."

We went "Speedering" again on Sunday. And we saw some huge "Choo Choo's" too. More on that later.

And finally, Ray and I celebrated out 6th anniversary on Sunday. Thank you to Grandma and Grandpa who babysat so we could go out for a lovely dinner and movie. We had a great time. We rarely go out on dates, and decided we should go at least once a season. Maybe we'll even work up to once a month. Provided we can find enough family and friends willing to watch our amazing, spirited, creative, and extremely energetic boys.

Happy Anniversary, Ray. I don't think we are doing all too bad (wink).
