The Weekend in Review

Such a great weekend! I got a ton accomplished- the only things on my list that I didn't get done were going to Sam's Club (had to do Wal-Mart once the boys were home) and re-organizing the hall closet. Not too shabby! I caught up on some sleep, spent a fantastic night with the river girls, de-cluttered all sorts of spaces and was anxiously waiting for my boys to return.

When they arrived, I had to laugh out loud. I spent most of my weekend working on cleaning things up- it seemed like they spent an equal amount of time doing just the opposite. Cooper could hardly wait to tell me about the weekend. Before he could finish even the 1st story, I was clicking away to try and capture the sheer filthiness of the situation. Here is a sample:

You'll note the huge amount of dirt on his hands and face. Those are hands that didn't come near water for almost 50 hours. Don't even get me started on the red tongue and teeth that hadn't seen a toothbrush in the same amount of time. The clincher was the wound under his right eye. When I asked about it, he shrugged it off and said, "what momma, it's not a big deal". Who are you and what have you done with my sweet child?? The tube-like apparatus in his hands is a homemade corn shooter. Glorious!!

Jon sent this picture to me while they were gone- a tiny glimpse into the conditions at camp.

Bottom line- they are safe and they had a wonderful time!

We all did!

I love how much fun they had! And I love that they spent as much time getting dirty as you did getting clean! You funny!

Do you get men at all? I sure
don't. I had to laugh at the picture of Cooper in his boy scout uniform, all clean...and then the picture of him coming home from camping...too funny. You had the whole house to yourself? You know I am jealous!!

Let's try to get together soon~
