The kids are at VBS this week. Well, at least 3 days of the week, before we take off for several days.

The church is decked out in Western decor to emphasize the cowboy theme, named Saddleback Ranch. The kids got to see a promotional video at church on Sunday, and that thing was so flashy both the kids stood there with their mouths hanging open. Leah was convinced that she was going to get to ride horses (kinda like she was convinced she was a real in, not very), while Ben just turned around and started sputtering nonsense.

What I could make out was, "cowpokes" and that the cowpokes have, as he demonstrated by holding up two fingers, "six-shooters". I am SO GLAD he started talking!


As you read this, I am madly trying to remember everything we need for six days away from home. Six days that may include swimming, rain, and 90 degree days. All of that needs to get crammed into the van, along with the pack & play, 2 air mattresses, and amusement & snacks enough for a four hour drive with 2 - make that 3- ornery kiddos.

Wish me luck. If you don't hear from me for a couple of days, please don't panic. I'll be back soon with lots of good stories, I'm sure!

...and then it rained, and rained, and rained...(at least when the Handy Husband wanted to go outside and play)
