All work, no play

Is it Thursday already? Where did the week go? Obviously I survived last weekend with Jeff out of town - we even made it to church twenty minutes early with everyone clean, well-groomed, and sitting quietly. It was a fluke. I've had a whole week of Lindsey's messy hair and moving like molasses before school to prove it.

But happily, her paper route is history and the after school hours are much more peaceful now. Trevor got a job though. YAY! Now he can save up and pay his own way for all those expensive activities he's always wanting to do and save for his mission. He'll be working at the pool concession stand and is pretty excited about it. He starts in a few weeks and after earning $1 and hour doing a paper route, he's thrilled to make minimum wage.

It made it to 60 degrees today. But the pool won't open unless the thermometer creeps up to seventy. So for the sake of Trevor's mission fund, here's hoping we see an immediate warming trend. Jeff is finishing up the semester and LOVING being back on a semester schedule. I'm finishing up salmon costumes for Lindsey and Tyler's school musical production. I'll post pictures in a few days. It does seem that there's just been one thing after another - nothing thrilling or exciting - just a lot of jobs that had to get done. Hopefully, we'll get a little more caught up and have time to play this weekend.
