The Week in Review

I have to say, I really enjoyed my time away! Not that I don't LOVE blogging, but it was nice to have a break.
So, many of you asked what I did during my time away.
Let me tell you, it was a very busy week!

First of all, as you may have noticed unless you're reading in a reader (Hi!!!), I revamped my blog. I LOVE IT. Do you? Please grab my new button!

Also, I fought the British.

Then, I gave in and let them win.

(this is my highly exaggerated way of telling you that my in-laws wanted Andrew to spend the entire summer with them, and although John & I don't think it's totally in his best interest, we decided not to fight the issue.)

We debated, and decided against, opening a can of worms indirectly related to Andrew's biological pathetic excuse for a mother. We'll keep her, and everyone remotely related to his life with her, out of sight and out of mind.

I graduated one child from the 8th grade.

I took another one to All - Star softball tournaments.

And the oldest one is officially a high school senior.

Needless to say, my break wasn't exactly restful!
I'll be elaborating and posting pictures about many of the above-mentioned things throughout the week. Thank you all for stopping by, and I can't wait to get back into the swing of blogging! I hope you had a great weekend & have a great week!

Busy, busy, busy. I can relate.
I can also relate to the fact that sometimes you have to pick you battles.
