Lazy Days of June

We haven't been doing anything too exciting around here lately.

Luke still has music on Monday evenings. Chiro every other Monday for all of us. Tuesday and Thursday mornings, Gabe has swim lessons. On Tuesday evenings, Ben has coffee club. He's part of a group at church that sells coffee on Sunday mornings to support mission work. Luke goes with him on Tuesday evenings and he and the other kids swim. Wednesday is youth group for Luke. We try to get together with a friend or two here and there, but nothing big.

Ben was gone for a week to build houses for widows in Guatemala. The boys and I didn't do much aside from our regular errands. I'm not used to having to take them to everything on my own. It really adds up! Between lessons, library trips, grocery shopping, church, youth, and volunteering, the week just flew by!

I did some straightening around the house, garage, and basement. Ben hates that type of thing so I cleaned and swept the basement and garage. Then I moved some lumbar and materials into the shed and cleaned up a bit outside.

For Father's Day we went to a new board game cafe in the city. We had a great time and ended up staying for a while. I got all three of them to play Dream Phone with me! It was about as awesome as you'd imagine.

The biggest news of the month is that my sister and brother-in-law are having a baby girl! It's the first girl in his family in over 55 years! I already have a niece, but she's 10, so it's time for another one!

The boys picked up a job taking care of some friend's pets while they're on vacation. Three times a week we go over and feed, water, and care for a cat and three guinea pigs. It's been a blessing for me because they've been begging for guinea pigs for a while and now they can see, firsthand, how much work comes along with it!

So that's about it for us here. As it starts to warm up we end up hunkering down more and more. I cannot stand the heat - can't function in it - so we end up sort of going through another hibernation. But Fall will be here before we know it and we'll be out and about in no time!
