Catching Up

Saturday morning we were glad to welcome some guests to our home for the weekend - Leslie and Rael Raskovich. Rael had been at camp in Leesburg and when Leslie came to pick her up they just headed on north to our house. They brought a cooler of food with them and made a terrific meal for us - teriyaki chicken, barbeque chicken, stuffing, corn and green beans and bread. Later we headed into downtown for a trip to Ocala Chocolate for a yummy dessert! We had such a good time visiting with them!!!!

On Monday Parker went back to regular YMCA camp and his swim lessons. He actually learned how to float on his back! And he earned another responsibility bead already this week. Mommy and Daddy actually managed to go see a movie for the first time in a month on Monday too. Mommy took a pain pill and brought along her big pillow to sit more comfortably. It was so nice to be out and about.

The littlest man is having fun too. Wesley's language skills continue to explode. He is chattering so much more these days, but you have to pay close attention or you might miss the lightning fast sentences. He's started calling Parker by his name more instead of Bubba which is so cute. And he's been singing a lot lately - the theme song to Galactic Blast VBS (Blast off!) and the mealtime prayer he learned at daycare (God our Father, once again, we are here to thank you; Amen!).

The rest of this week will be dedicated to slowly getting ready for our annual beach pilgrimage. We are definitely looking forward to the trip this year! We booked a different hotel a little further north on the island and for the same price as last year will have a gulf front room with an actual bedroom instead of an efficiency. Thankfully the Gulf oil spill has not come ashore in Sarasota.
