July 4th Weekend

Happy Monday! Did you all have a wonderful July 4th weekend? I did, for most of it:)

On Friday, my mom and I spent all day at the racetrack near our house. (It is a fundraiser for the school.) We got there at 8am and did not leave until 10pm. We were ushers for their national racing event. Then on Saturday we were there from 8am until 3pm. We got very sunburned, and we were very sore. Please explain to me why people spend $50plus to see cars race down a 1/4 mile track time after time after time.

Anyway…:) On Saturday, after the ushering, we headed on down to one of our family friend’s house. They have a beautiful house down near Ashland, set in the woods, landscaping, relaxing. We ate dinner there (always tons of food!) and then drove over to the Ashland balloon fest. The balloon there are very neat to watch. We just stayed to see the balloons rise into the air, and then we went back to their house. We made a fire, made s’mores, and set off fireworks. He accidentally bought mostly smoker fireworks, but we also had poppers, sparklers, and some other kind of popper.

On Sunday, we went to church and then relaxed the rest of the day. We watched the final Hobbit movie. It is good, if you know the story, then you should watch those and the Lord of the Rings movies! But I also recommend reading the book first.

Tomorrow, I have a fun game day planned at the school. I am inviting incoming, current, and past students from my school to come and play games and eat snacks with me. I have to teach a number of games from my game file for CILT, and this is the perfect opportunity to do it.

Speaking of camp, I get to go off to camp next week! This time next week, I will be in Bible Ex (Bible Exploration time) with my cabin, probably with my stomach growling, ‘It’s time for lunch!!!’ This is the part of the summer that I wait for every year.

This week, we are going to clean out our room. Get rid of lots of clothes, just put our mattresses on the floor, get rid of a bunch of junk, make it nicer in there.

I have some work to do to get ready for tomorrow and for camp, but I think I will get outside today. My garden really needs to be weeded and watered. I don’t know about where you live, but for the past several weeks it has rained so much, and then about the middle of last week, it just stopped. Now I have to water, and water, and water:) Oh, well.


What did you do for your weekend? Anything special?
