Camp was much like last year ๐Ÿ™ J3 got a high fever and we came home. However, we made it for 5 nights this time instead of just one! J2, J3 and I came home and visited the Dr. “Just a virus” (sigh)

And, now I’m eagerly awaiting DH and J1 return home. It’s only been 4 nights – but that is 4 nights too many! Dh left his cell phone in the van, so he’s out of communication – I didn’t realize how much I like have the convenience of calling him to find out where he is!!

I’m putting a lasange in the oven in moments and then making a green salad and continuing to watch for them! At least I’ve got my knitting – two at once toe up socks via magic loop in Knit Picks Dancing they call it “Jig” I think of Monet’s water lillies:

We have three baseball games today – the last ones of the season – and then we are off to Mt Hope!ย  DH will be teaching for Jr High camp and then Camp Pastor for Sr High Camp.ย  The boys and I will be just hanging out.ย  I’m sort of dreading it – how will I keep them busy?ย  I’m taking some distractions – hoping to teach them all some games.

Anyway – just wanted to explain my future absence!ย  Take care y’all!
