Have I mentioned this month

how great my kids are?

This has been a hectic week. I went to King's Island on Monday with my youngest, Baylor and his friends. We had a lot of fun. Justin cut his hair in a mohawk for the event and I think they rode every coaster down there.

Baylor, Justin, Brenton and Keegan, as well as a very large group of middle schoolers for South Vienna, went as part of their incentive program. If the kids are good all year, they get an incentive trip for each quarter. If they make all 4 field trips, they go to King's Island.

The rest of the week, we have been desperately trying to get ready for Kelly's grad party. I cannot believe it's this weekend. Laura and her family are coming up from South Carolina. Lou and her family are coming in from PA. The first time in 5 years all of us are together at the same time.

Last night, I came home to the boys cleaning the kitchen. And I don't just mean doing the dishes and wiping the counter tops. Ethan and Baylor took everything out of the cupboards, cleaned the cupboards and put everything back. It's amazing. Ethan said he could get the whole house done this way, but I doubt that would happen. There are two many other things that need done when the sun shines and since we got 4 inches of rain yesterday, it was a good thing to fill the day.

Kelly went to Cedar Point with her band today. It's probably the last event she will go to with these kids. She will see them throughout the next 4 years, but probably not go to events. It's 90 degrees and sunny, so I hope she remembers to put on sun screen. She has two skin tones, white and red.

Well, I have the day off tomorrow, so since my fam is in town, I am sure the last thing I want to do is blog. Have a great weekend.

Your kids do sound great. I love reading your blog. It kind of reminds me of my long ago homelife when I lived in the Midwest. I keep imagining your voice and I hear Meryl Streep. I think if there were a movie about you, she'd be the perfect one to play you.
