Monday the 10th...
Grandma (Jeff's mom) came down to visit us. She is so kind to take us to lunch, the ceramic shop, and we also stopped at the library to replenish our book supply. We grilled a yummy dinner and enjoyed a lovely family evening at home.

Tuesday the 11th...
Grandma left early. Then the kids and I packed up and headed to Nana and Granddad's new neighborhood pool. Truthfully, we did not do a whole lot more today, except the normal chores that must be done. Blissful summer day!

Wednesday the 12th...
Hot and humid today, over 90 degrees! We spent the day catching up on our reading and math. I let the kids play extra Wii since it was too hot to be outside for long after noon. In the evening, Jeff and I went to Costco and dropped Grace off at a church function for her youth group. And just a side note, gas is still over $4 a gallon! Ouch.

Thursday the 13th...
Storms came through overnight. Woke us up a couple of times. Decided to cancel our camping trip this weekend. Jeff has a cold, and they are calling for more stormy weather Saturday night. Grace and I went to Trader Joe's this morning. We spent a little time cleaning up the house today. Otherwise, it was a low key day.

Friday the 14th...
This is the day I have been dreading. This morning, I let foster cat Nikki have some time in the living room with open windows so she could see the birds on last time. Then I packed her up and returned her to the shelter. The foster coordinator asked me if I wanted to take home another cat, but I said not yet. It was so hard to leave her there knowing she will be in a cage for months and months. I cried all the way home. Back at home, I cleaned up the room she had been spending most of her time in. Ryan surprised me by being able to start the riding mower for the first time. He took care of the yard again this week, giving Jeff another week off. What a guy!

Saturday we took a day trip to a pool an hour south of us. Saturday night big winds and lots of rain came through, so we were glad to be home safe home. Sunday, after church, we got together with grandparents, two generations!
It was a lovely, but busy weekend.
