And We're Back!

We had a wonderful week of camp. I know the classes, chapel services, reflection times, etc. were beneficial to me and I'm sure many of the campers (and other counselors) would say the same thing.

I managed to avoid the cuts, scrapes, wasp stings, sunburns, bug bites and other typical injuries that seemed far too common this year. The only effect of the extreme heat noticeable on yours truly was some not-so-lovely ankle swelling. (One of the girls in my group: "I can't even see your ankles!") So I did a lot of putting my feet up, water drinking and yes, I took a nap every day but one.

That's a nice perk of going to camp while hugely pregnant: everyone takes pity on you and excuses your slacking off.

Then it was back home for a few hours sleep. We got up Saturday morning to go pick up our girls. Once we had them back where they belonged (In our van! With us!) we stopped at the home of some friends. A "quick visit" turned into a six hour playing, talking, eating and encouragement session. We hadn't seen these friends since January and at one point, after playing nicely together for about an hour or so, Sweet Pea came to me and whispered, "I don't know my friends' names so can you tell me?"

Sunday was the usual (church, lunch with family, choir practice, more church...) and we just came home and dumped everything. Which is what we had done Friday night and Saturday night as well.

So you can imagine the state our house is in just now. I've been doing laundry since I got up this morning and there's no end in sight. There's no kitchen table in sight either. And that goes for the kitchen floor, the living room floor, the girls bedroom floor, and oh, never mind. Just listing it all out is making me tired.

And have I mentioned that Prince Charming has been kind of grouchy today? It could be because of the 1,236,781 things he has to have ready before our next week of camp. Also, Fen is here. He brings the cuteness but also another layer of complication (seeing as helping pick up is not really in his skill set, yet).

And I haven't even mentioned the professional baseball game we're supposed to go to tonight...

Better get back at it. (And yes, once I'm home camp does seem like a breeze compared to real life).

Glad you're back and all went well. Are we going to get to see a preggo pic of you on the ol' blog? Hm?

I hope you enjoyed your game tonight! Who did you see play?

At least you have a week of "rest" (?????) in between weeks of camp! :)
