Heading into Rush Hour

Hey y'all! How was your week? My week was uneventful, which as all mommies know is nice.  Have you ever had to drive through a major metropolitan city during rush hour?  Having lived in the Kansas City metro area it is an event to avoid if at all possible.  Preparing to parent the next month without much help is like preparing to take a trip into rush hour, on purpose.  I would rather not have to parent with out Mr. Daddy as back up, but we do not really have any other option.  Let's talk about something happy first, our Father's day road trip.

We had a wonderful time in St. Joseph. The kids got to see all their grandparents, except Oma who lives in North Carolina.  They haven't seen them in over 6 months.

The kids had a ton of fun spending time with family and generally being crazy. I was lucky enough to get to spend some time with Mama Rosie.  It was really nice to have an hour of time with no kids and talking with an old friend.

Monday we got to spend some time with our Sweet Southern Friends.  The big kids played outside together, while the two little ones played inside.  It was so nice to be able to spend time with our friends.  I really miss getting to spend time with them every week. 

The girls' Tae Kwon Do lessons were more difficult this week because Mr. Daddy was super busy with work.  Previously Mr. Daddy watched Mr. Mister while I took the girls to their lessons, but he wasn't able to help this week.  Mr. Mister doesn't like being confined to a stroller and 2 hours is a long time for anyone.  The instructor came to our rescue and allowed Bee to do her lesson with Bug and cut down our sitting time to only 1 hour.

I'm hoping to take several weekend trips to Kansas City in July.  It should keep the kids busy and allow them to spend time with friends and family.  It also allows me access to resources that I don't have here, can you say homeschool supplies! Here's hoping it goes smoothly.
Until next time,
