While enjoying a little downtime here on the Florida coast, I happened to think about how neglected my blog has been lately. And how quickly time is passing. I mean....what the heck happened to April??? I had plans, man. Real plans. I had several posts for Autism Awareness, being that April is Autism Awareness month. Did I post them?
I also planned to post our Autism Story (header tab) during April. Did I??
Nope. Didn't post that, either...
I still have posts about Eli's Make-A-Wish trip sitting waiting to be cleaned up for publishing. His trip was a year ago.
Seriously. We were in Orlando, FL this week last year.
I should post all this stuff, shouldn't I??
It's never too late....right??
And have I even posted about Caleb? My grandson??
He is 9 1/2 weeks old already!
Maybe I should set aside a specific time to blog a little each day. You know....make a plan.
So....we are at Club Destin on vacation this week. The weather is perfect. Hot, but perfect. We're hoping to do some khaki and black family portraits in the next couple of days. I can't wait to get my black-wearing, skinny jeaned, long-haired boys into those khaki pants! (cue the evil cackles)
We are spending most of our day time at the indoor pool and the late afternoons at the beach. That way we don't have to worry about the heat of the day and sunburns. We hit the outdoor pool at night. Of course, it's hard to get a Florida tan that way, but they say tanning is bad for you. I'm sure that's true, but everyone knows fat looks much better with a tan....
So...what's been happening? Well.... Since little Caleb joined our family in March, I've been holding, rocking, changing, bathing, feeding, playing, and loving him. So sweet!
Eli came down with some crazy pneumonia and his xrays showed some weird/scary stuff on his lung. Thankfully, it was all clear a month later and we don't have to worry about that any more. Eli's six month heart and neuro check ups went well. Cade's six month neuro check up went well, too.
I've been thinking a lot about spring cleaning, major decluttering, and home organization. I've cruised around Pinterest, pinning great ideas left and right. I've added some ideas of my own. Some day, maybe, I will implement them.
The boys had fun during their spring field trips and fun school days. Eli finished up preschool and registered for kindergarten. The older boys did very well as far as grades: my 8th grader was exempt from every single final exam and my 4th grader was on the A/B honor roll the entire year. And my oldest boy will be a senior this fall. Wow....
We finished up May with this family trip to the beach. I posted a few photos yesterday. Did you notice my new short hair and highlights??
I'm thinking June will be spent making more fun family memories and hopefully completing a few DIY projects. Then I'll post about it all here for a change. (And back track on the missing posts I mentioned earlier...really!)
What a concept...
What's on your summer agenda??
