I know, I've been Terrible at blogging lately! The days are just flying by, and before I know it, I'm headed to bed and have not blogged!
So... since Sunday, what have we been up to?
On Monday I had lunch with Sandy, the third spouse wife that I've met with to interrogate them about everything I need to know about deployment and how to handle it best with kids, etc. She (as were each of the others) was extremely helpful! I am so blessed to have such encouraging women around me.
Tuesday was the first time I'd gone running with both kids in the jogger, and it went much better than I expected! I actually did a mile and a half in my usual, solo time! It must be that I had to "power up" the inclines, and the jogger "dragged" me down the other side! =)
That night we had a super awesome time at Family Night with Devin and Melissa (and a bunch of other friends that happened to be there!)
Yesterday I worked on figuring out how to incorporate Eden's Sock Monkey theme and Keenan's Construction theme into their joint birthday party next month. Should be fun! =)
Rebekah and I braved the crowds and checked out the new Wal-Mart (hours after it opened) with all our kids! =)
Last night we went to DQ for dessert, since they were having Customer Appreciation Day and everything was 1/2 Off! The line was forever long, and the kids sat on either side of me, dripping their Dilly Bars all over me while Philip got our food, but it was totally worth it and my Peanut Buster Parfait was divine! =)
So, (as has been his plot for our entire married life), Philip has, in the last couple of days, convinced me to watch the Star Wars movies with him. And... I have to say - I'm actually liking them! (That last part was typed in a whisper). What next?!?
This morning we had MOPS, and bade farewell to one of our coordinators, Destiny, who will be moving to Germany with her Air Force husband soon. =0/ We also had a kick boxing instructor come and do a class for us, which was super cool (I may not be able to move tomorrow, but for today, it was fun!)
Then we had to load up on chewy dog toys, since Spunky definitely likes to chew.
