Miscellaneous Monday

Okay, I'm a cheater. I know it's Sunday, but I figure I'll post a quick update of our lives. Has it really been that long since I blogged? Seems summer is slipping away ...

Yes, my kids start school next week! That means this is our last week to get in all the fun we can. No pressure, right? :) Actually, the kids have had so much fun this summer I doubt they'll complain even if we sit around and do nothing this last week. They (as well as I) have had a blast since my parents returned from their mission. Of course, I'm enjoying spending time with my mom. My boys, however, are lovin' seeing their cousin Nick a lot more often (he lives next door to Grandma). Add to that they have an awesome Grandpa who is bored and built them a clubhouse in Nick's backyard, and they're in heaven. Of course, Grandma and Nick's mom have spoiled them rotten with all kinds of "clubhouse treats" and lunch served to them in the clubhouse. What more could a boy ask for? :) I haven't taken any pics of this clubhouse, but I'll get to it. Or I'll post ones of the clubhouse Grandpa builds in our backyard ... :) And Shayla, she loves watching LazyTown with Grandpa.

My boys start soccer the same week that school starts, and I've agreed to coach Zachary's team this year. I've coached several of Tyler's soccer and baseball teams, so I figured I better coach one of Zachary's one of these days. I'm doing it the perfect year -- it's the first year the coaches don't have to be on the field refereeing, and it's the last year before they start keeping score. Tyler is in the competitive league now, which always makes me nervous. He just enjoys playing and doesn't care at all whether he wins or loses. So, hopefully he'll get a coach who doesn't mind a fun-loving, non-competitive kid on his team.

I'm starting a new fitness challenge beginning Aug. 30. I need the accountability, and I already have heard from two other people in the last challenge that they want back in, too. I guess summer was a little too much fun for many of us. ;) Let me know if you want details or to join. The more, the merrier.

This week is going to be a fun one: I'm headed to a day of Education Week with Hilary, and I'm headed to the Demolition Derby on Saturday with much of my family. Both are bound to be thrillers ... of course in different ways. :)
