We're home!

After a sweltering hot week at Junior High camp, we're home! Since I am a recovering junior higher, I found the week to be extremely humorous! I don't think I've ever laughed so hard in all my life! The kids would say and do funny things throughout the day, then we'd recap and embellish them at night in the retreat center with some old/new friends. Good times!
While we did enjoy the week, it was also EXTREMELY good to get our boys back! I always think they grow and mature by leaps and bounds when we're apart! Seriously, they only talk in complete sentences now, they pee and poop only on a potty, and manners are getting stellar good! Please, thank you, sorry, excuse me...yeah!!! Not bragging...just SO glad to have them home!
So, here's yet another more things!
1. I'm so thankful for my bloggin' friends! I really missed you all this week! No internet = long days wondering what the rest of the world was up to...
2. Coupons--my new best friends! Cheap deals = *happy* sneaky mommy!
3. Michigan Blueberries! My mother-in-law got us a great stash on their way home from seeing the other 5 C's.
4. My new nephew! (probably should have put him before the blueberries...oops!) Kolby Dean was born two weeks ago tomorrow. Hopefully Grandma C. will bring home some cute pictures! Can't wait to see him!
5. Camp! It was great to see God answer our prayers for kids to accept Christ and make changes in their lives!
6. CODY! He led the music at camp and did a great job of continually pointing us to Christ through our music! Even amidst some opposition, he took the high road, and ultimately Christ was glorified through it.
7. My BED! Did I mention we got a new mattress for our 10th anniversary...we're celebrating the WHOLE's next June. It's a super awesome mattress that I didn't even know I would miss so much until the third day at camp when I could no longer turn my head from side to side...awesome. People got my whole attention when we were talking...augh! One day at home...stellar!
Hope you all have a great week! It's good to be home and hopefully be getting back into the swing of things. Just a ka-zillion more loads of laundry and we'll be there...
