What We're Up To

My brother Jim left for home on Saturday. We had a blast while he was here. The week was filled with a baby dedication, a trip to the State Fair, a Labor Day picnic, an afternoon canoeing adventure, a family pizza "party" and a Friday night movie. Since Jim hadn't been home since Christmas, we packed in activities like sardines packed in a can. I'm not sure if we could've fit anything else in if we had tried. And to top off my list of things I did with Jim, I also started helping at a daycare run by a friend of mine and was there three days last week. This friend has been after me for a few years now to help her and I have put it off until now. Seeing as I now have Joshua to look after and am only working at the restaurant one day a week, I was able to concede to her wishes. Josh comes along with me and plays with the other children (sort of) and I am still able to make a little extra money to help with the bills. So far it has been enjoyable, though when there are three or more children crying at once (including my own) it can be a little taxing. I suppose it comes with the territory and I'll learn the ropes soon enough. But that is what I've been up to lately. Keeps me out of trouble, I guess. :)

Do you think you will go out and see him sometime?

Rachel said...

Yeah, you need stuff to keep you out of trouble! Tee hee, just kidding! I'm glad you had fun with Jim.

I'm glad you had such a great week with Jimmy. It sounds like you all enjoyed every minute of it! I hope your new job goes well for you.

I hope Josh doesn't get sick from being at the day care with you!!
I have started going to the gym every day, and I drop the boys off in the nursery they provide... both of them are now sick and I KNOW it was because of that! ick.

That's exciting to be bringing in a bit more money! Good for you!! :)
