I will pretty much do just about anything these days to spend a little extra time with this kid so I mad and extra trip back to “town” to take him for Bahama Bucks.
Carly and Holden attended an art camp all week and when I picked them up on day one they were ready to show off the rocks they painted.
Tuesday I showed up to a meeting and it appears we all got the memo on the black & white day! My hair was a hot mess but I knew my hairdresser would have me all fixed up later in the day!
Ahhh…always love a fresh cut and color! This past year I had some weird things happening with my color but I think we finally got back on track.
Wednesday night I had some time alone with my oldest. It started off a little rocky as we kind of had a little spat on the way but we ended up kind of glad it happened as we ended up working through it all and probably grew our relationship a bit! I can definitely come across pretty callous at times and dismissive of other peoples feelings and I need to work on that!
I am super impressed with the first piece of art Carly Jo painted this week. I was too lazy to get up to take a picture of the second! She did such a great job and the teacher is so sweet. I’m hoping to have her in a class one afternoon a week this fall.
Carly Jo and I headed out to grab a few items we still needed before packing for camp and grabbed lunch at Grub Burger. If you are in the Houston or Dallas area definitely look them up, so delish! I love the Jive Turkey cut the cheese and aioli mayo on the side and I even skipped the bun but it was hard since they are homemade and so soft and yummy!
Once the kids hit 7th grade they actually go to a site at Lake Travis instead of New Braunfels and these boys rode the shuttle so we would not have to make the one hour trip for a second drop off.
All the cabins are named after small Texas towns and it is always so fun to find out which one they are assigned.
The theme is also always a favorite thing to discover. This year is Final Score – He Won, We Win. One of my kids fave things they talk about at camp is never to waste fun and they even have their own word, Fuagnem or fired up and going nuts every minute. I just know they are going to have so much fun all week!
So here we are, alone for the week! Too bad we both have to go to work. I’m sure he would die if he saw the list of projects around the house I would like to knock out in the evenings. Shhhh….don’t tell!
Hope you all enjoy the last week of July! Yes, that’s right, another month is almost over!! Hope you are all staying cool and enjoying life. Have a super week!
