We had a busy weekend. We usually have some time to sit and do nothing and even get a little antsy to leave the house. Not this weekend. I find that as my kids get older and I have more of them, we are seeing less of that free time. But we had fun.
8am make potatoes for a funeral
9am take Than and Erica to the Airport.
11am – get potatoes cooked and kids picked up and potatoes delivered.
12pm try to wish my brother Kevin a happy birthday, make dinner, talk to Tracie, Get the kids settled over at their cousins
1-5pm I worked in the yard, cleaned the patio, mowed the lawns, and started on my hot tub pad
7pm softball game! we won!
8:30pm Bens brothers come over to catch the Pre-season Packer game.
7am Packer tapping me on my shoulder – maybe he needs his crib back!
10:30 off to Benji’s soccer game. Right when we got there he went to the playground and knocked his tooth almost through his lip. We put ice on it and decided not to have a Dr look at it.
11am Benji’s game. He did better than last week. If he got five kicks he got icecream so… he kicked it 6 times and looked at his dad after every kick to make sure that he was counting.
12pm – off to get icecream! Good Job Benji.
1pm – change diapers and reload diaper bag for Ben’s work party.
2pm – work party in Alpine, jumpy houses, good food, free stuff = FUN.
4pm Ben runs to leadership session of Stake Conference. I try unsuccessfully to get the kids down for naps. LaNell comes over to chill.
5:30 Reload diaper bag – head out for our soccer game. We WON! They had a player that I really don’t like to play against. Last year he gave Ben a shiner. This year he was being his crazy self, took a few of our guys out and then when he just missed the ball and kicked me in the shin under my shin guard I had had enough. From there I had to really good assists and a goal – we won 6-2. Sorry Red Shorts-hopefully the bruise on my shin is smaller than his bruised ego!
7pm Matt and Jamie take the kids and we run to stake Conference.
9pm Get kids and check out the new projector set up. I’m tired. Call and chat with my brother Michael Â and tell him happy birthday.
7am another tap on the shoulder from Packer, Benji then tells me when it says 8 on the clock and Cali chimed in so I finally get up.
10am Stake Conference. Good Talks. Maybe I need to try that indexng thing rather than reading all ya’lls blogs 🙂 The kids were good so we actually got to listen.
12pm Reload diaper bag and head for Spanish Fork.
1pm – Baby Chloe gets blessed (Ben’s cousins kid). Spend the afternoon with family and good food and fun.
6:00 stop and see my brothers new partment. He’s single, 26. (Let me know if you have any blind date options for him).
7:00 Johnson family night get together! My moms parents and her siblings and their kids. More food, family and fun. And for the 3rd time in one Day I was asked point blank if I am pregnant. Am I gaining weight people?? I’ve just been to 3 big free for all food functions in a row maybe that’s the problem.
9:00pm Get into comfortable clothes and get the kids in bed cause the weekend is over!
Weekend OVER – Now it is time for Ben to go back to work and us to get ready for our big camping trip this week. My mom always tried to get the house in order before we left on a trip and I thought it was weird because we are just going to come home and unload the van and make a big mess again BUT now I understand. So here’s to packing and getting the house in order before we leave.
