Weekly Wrap-up: Week 29 - The One with a Yawn

:: yawn :: 

I'm going to sleep well tonight! In fact, I've been sleeping well for many nights now. Spending time OUTSIDE has a way of tuckering me out. But I REALLY wanted to post a weekly wrap-up for you all. It's been since April 16th since I've blogged. Days have gotten away from me.

April Vacation was last week. I'm not so sure about the VACATION part. With 5 kids, 6 for 1 1/2 days, things aren't exactly relaxing. But it's pretty darn awesome to have all these kids around just the same. We spent our days walking along the lake, dipping our toes in with thoughts of swimming, tossing baseballs and seeing my stepson-to-be's first game of the season, biking, watching videos, and gabbing around a fire.


And I got baptized.

With the weather warming up (and the bugs aren't out yet), we've been tackling outside projects. The yard is devoid of downed limbs, brown leaves and pine needles once again. Sam's been removing the rotted floor of the tree house, getting it ready for new plywood, and we repaired the chicken and duck run door. I'd like to say that the door looks awesome, but I CAN say it's FUNCTIONAL. The garden is prepped for sowing seeds when I get around to ordering them.



The Spring Peepers are singing. Nothing says spring like frogs humming at nightfall. They accompany us during our evening strolls with Rosie and Winnie, our dogs.


Before I crash for the night (with hopes that someone else will take care of the animals tomorrow morning), just 9 days until THE big day!

As always, special thanks to these bloggers for their weekly wrap-ups:

    1. Well, we're both "going with the flow" with our wedding! But it's very informal, family-oriented...and I'm sure it'll be it's "own" perfect!

    1. Me too! Amazing how such small frogs can make such a BIG noise! But I'm sure that the swampy area behind the house and ponds and brooks around the area are a great breeding ground for them.
