Wow. June was a busy month around here. We had so many busy things going on that I finally decided to give up on my blog for the month and not feel one bit guilty about it. Okay, I felt a little guilty, but oh well. So now that it is officially July, let me update you on the last couple of weeks.

As you know from the last post, I taught VBS. It was a great time and as always I enjoyed getting to teach once again. As soon as VBS was over, my mom arrived for a 12-day visit. Part of that visit was so that she could spend some over-due time with the grand-babies.

And part of her visit was a mercy mission. What do I mean by that? Well, my wonderful mom took it upon herself to stay with our two girls all by herself for 3 1/2 days so Michael and I could go on a cruise. ALL. BY. OURSELVES. Ahhhhh.

I don't think I can begin to describe how wonderful it was to spend a few days with no real schedule. No running around chasing after a very energetic 17 month old. No halting of activities to head back for nap times. No eating with one hand while fighting to feed the baby. None of that. Ahhhh. It was so nice to spend an entire day reading a book on the beach under the shade of these trees:

Taking breaks from reading only to cool off in the clear, cool water. 

Oh, and no vacation is complete without seeing what has to be the world's largest goldfish.

Okay, so it's not a goldfish, but still. Look at the size of that thing!! Michael better watch out because I think that fish wants to eat him for lunch.

Needless to day, a relaxing time was had by all. Well, my mom might say different. She and the girls had tons of fun, but I don't know how relaxing it was for her. Now I am in the process of getting back in our routines (which will hopefully include regular blog updates). And Claire is busy teaching me all the fun new games MiMi taught her while we were away. 

And now I am off to the luxurious laundry room where the unfolded clothes are calling my name.

I miss my girls...playing with grandbabies is WAY less "taxing" than getting back to work.
