Children's meetings

This week there are Children's meetings in Clinton. I've been taking the boys every night. It is a long drive for me, since I am not a huge driver. I don't usually have the need or chance to drive anywhere! With just the one vehicle I stay at home alot, and when I do go out, G drives. Anyway, the boys are greatly enjoying the children's meetings. There are prizes to earn, and Ryan and Liam have their hearts set on certain prizes, of which there are only one, so they better bring some friends pretty quickly or the prizes will be gone. Kyle brought a friend last night. The little guy had a great time, and said many times that he wanted to come again, but on the way home he barfed half digested cookies and chocolate milk all over himself and the car. I don't know that his Mom was so impressed that he came home in that state~ especially since the last time that B came over to play he went home with a war wound. (He'd bee running around barefoot and cut his ankle on a stick). I imagine she thinks I am completely lax in my supervision or something. I felt so badly for the poor guy!

The man who is doing the Sunday school is named Tim, and I am afraid I don't know his last name or where he is from. He's speaking about the children of Israel, and Moses, and every night has a different "God is" theme. (God is Holy, Loving etc) They play a game and memorize their verse and have a snack after. It has been a VERY long time since I've been to Children's meetings, and I am quite enjoying these!

The end of the school year is rapidly approaching. I am excited about this, since I am not a cheery morning person. Well, once I get out of bed I am cheery, but the prying my eyes open and dragging my unwilling body out of bed is not my favorite thing to do. I do like to sleep in, and I am looking forward to it. I also am looking forward to the boys being around more, so I can do fun stuff like sitting on them and giving them noogies. Hahaha We have lots of fun. Maybe this year Liam will be big enough that we can go on the road bike riding. It makes me nervous to ride on the road now, which is odd because it never bothered me before I had my children. The shoulders are so narrow and the cars drive so fast! The weather has cooled alot so I am hoping it stays that way and doesn't get muggy again so we can do lots of summer activities without risking heatstroke.
