A little bit of this . . .

I'm sort of stuck between the stress that I feel because the upcoming summer and the total relaxation that I often fall into when I feel the warm temperatures. Therefore, my temperament tonight is mildly bipolar.

I'll bet you didn't know that two months from today, Jack will turn one year old AND we'll be in our first full day of staff training. The summer is coming so quickly and I feel way under prepared. Last year, I knew I would be delivering Jack right around staff training time, so I overcompensated and had everything ready for the summer by February! Here's what we were doing last year at this time. My added responsibilities at camp, coupled with the extra work of having a baby, have caused me to be WAY behind. Way, way, way behind. I would make you a list of everything that I'm behind in, but doing so might push my blood pressure into unsafe territory.

I was so grateful that Joy came down to visit on Monday and stayed through today. We totally took advantage of her and roped her into babysitting a little bit! She's so great with Jack! We really did have a good time. She lived with us two summers ago, so when she comes back it's not like she's a house guest. She just makes herself at home and we like having her here.

Kristen and Brett came over for lunch today. We pureed food for Emma in the morning while Kyle and Brett were helping with a baseball camp for elementary school kids. I took some 6-month photos of Emma, too.

The weather was beautiful today! It was a little chilly, but the sun was out so it seemed warmer. Several of our neighbors have been out all afternoon burning leaves. As a result, it smells like we have a campfire going in our living room. My eyes are burning!
