I think Shawn is taking a day off each week to be home with Violet and Mazy -- that will be great for all three of them. Mazy is looking forward to movie days with his dad, and to just being home. The biggest regret I have as a working parent is that our children never get the joy of a true summer break. They are either in daycare, day camps or at someone's house. I want them to experience lazy days at home when they can sleep in, watch TV, play in the backyard and just enjoy being kids.
This week is much calmer than last week's crazy schedule! Mazy is taking swim lessons every day at noon. My cousin Luke is watching him for two weeks. Mazy likes hanging out with his older cousin and playing his video games, so it's working out well.
No plans this weekend except to work on the house! July is the official month of getting our house ready to sell. We can do it! We will do it! We have no choice -- Violet wants a room, and what Violet wants, Violet gets! :)
Well, it's late and I need to get some sleep. Here are a few photos from Bo's birthday party at the Botanical Center in Des Moines. We had so much fun! Thanks to any of you reading this who were able to attend!
