The Summer Plan

It is really hard for me to believe that there are only 2 more weeks left of school. Mrs. Cooke was right -- 4th grade DOES go by fast!!!!!

As I have posted before I have lots of things planned for this summer. I want to enjoy it with my boy and make it last! My major project is going to be a total house and garage purge (eek!!) which I will work on bit by bit everyday.

And even though I will not have a set schedule this is what I want to include everyday...

1.Baby food breakfast, lunch and dinner and a weaning off of the bottle/transition to sippy cups!!

2. A smoothie

3. Exercise (either walking, hiking, tae-bo or gym)

4. Cleaning -- portion of a room.

5. Unpack one box from garage or clean up small area

6. Activity with Jonathon

7. Personal and family scripture study and prayer.

8. Dishes and laundry

9. Read (to Jonathon and myself)

10. Cook or make one healthy meal.

I think this is doable.

TJ will also be gone during June so that limits my exercise choices (can't take Jonathon to the gym or on a hike!!).

It is so close!!!

Summer Manifest UPDATED

Last summer I was tethered to my couch by a cute little colicky Peanut, but this summer we are going to get out and have fun and have adventures!!!

Here are the plans!!

1. SWIMMING. I am hoping to get to the pool at least once a week. They have a play area and wading pool for Peanut and I also want to get him in the big pool with me to get used to the water.

2. Gardening. I am doing a couple of vegetable plants in the back and some flowers in the front. Hoping to get Peanut out there with me to dig in the dirt.

3. Walks. Everyday. There are lots of places I can take Peanut in the stroller.

4. Runs. Hoping to go when TJ gets home. Also gym time and maybe some hikes.

5. Day trips. There are several places I would like to take Peanut over the summer like the Flint hills Discovery Center, Oz Museum, etc.

6. Lake trips. I would like to get out to the lake at least once a month. Maybe do an overnight cabin trip.

7. Full house clean and purge. The plan is to pick a room and then work on a part of it each day.

8. Garage clean out. Work on one box or pile a day.

9. Smoothie a Day. and I will share with Peanut!!

10. We will go to Pelican Pete's Shaved Ice!!!!!!!!!!


11. Library Story Time. Our library and the Manhattan library have ones geared for babies and their caregivers. I would like to attend at least one once a week.

12. SUNDOWN SALUTE!!! I have no idea how I missed this one before. A summer tradition.

13. Weekly playgroups. Some church members do an unofficial one each week.

Easter 2015

I also have a picture of Peanut with the Easter Bunny but I don't know where it is at the moment. Anyway, his daycare helped them make bunny ear headbands. I made my infamous lamb cake and we had a basket for Peanut (plus an extra one with goodies from his aunt and uncle).

IKEA!!!! And My Cool Cart

We got an IKEA in Kansas!!!! Only 2 hours away. So of course we had to go.

The cafeteria is awesome as well.

We found good deals on a comforter and pillows, but the man reason we went was so i could get a Raskog Cart for my scrap booking stuff. I would have preferred one in black or even turquoise, BUT the beige one was literally the very last one left in stock!!!!!!!!! So we snatched it up. Peanut helped Daddy put it together

It makes a good baby trolley as well lol.

ManCat Monday with Scout and Pete

Hey all, I know it has been furrever, BUT having a baby brother is hard work!! I have to rest all day to help take care of him in the evening and also make sure Mommy is getting enough rest.

Last month Mommy brought home a cool new friend for us, Pete The Cat. He has books written about him!

I went to my yearly vet appointment. I got them good!! But i scared Miss K, who went with us. Luckily my brother was at daycare. But I yowled and screamed when they tried to examine me!! Unfortunately, it did not get me out of shots or a dental cleaning a few weeks later. Believe it or not I behaved for that. because I was drugged.

Last I will leave you with a sunset Mommy saw.
