Before that, I must do This!

I have lists. Lots of lists. Things I want to do, things I am going to do, things I will never do. Lists, lists everywhere.

For our trip I made some mental lists. Things that I wanted to do with my family, things I want to do with my husband, things I want to do by myself (of course with the wee one attached at all times!).

Our family list is getting checked off daily.

  • Drive to Meemaw and Grandpa's for an overnighter -- Check
  • Go to Grandma and Grandpa's -- Check
  • See Fireflies and eat S'mores -- Check
  • Stay up late reading books with Grandma -- Check
  • Yesterday we went to Worlds of Fun with the Grandparents and had a blast. Jeremy and I did the Rip Cord. Yes my friends, 180 feet in the air and I pulled the rip cord. It was AMAZING. Oh my gosh. I want to do it again and again and again.
  • Today we went to Deanna Rose Farmstead. The kids got to feed goats, play on the playground, pet the cows, go in an old one room schoolhouse, ride a pony and fish. Other than a slight scare with a goat (my sweet niece is terrified of the goats!), we had a fantastic time. If you are in the Kansas City area, you must go here, it is FREE and fun!
  • Go to Lawrence and see old friends -- Wednesday
  • Go to on a date with my husband while we have a free babysitter -- hopefully tomorrow.
  • Go to BlogHer thanks to the nice folks at Signing Time -- Thursday!!!
  • Party, party, party -- all weekend!
  • Learn lots on how to make my blog better for you, my dear readers -- all weekend!
  • Sunday; come back to KC and play more with the family
  • Go to my folks house (Meemaw and Grandpa) for a few days -- coming soon!

As you can see, there is much I have done and much I will keep doing. My lists never end. So I am trying really hard just to take it one day at a time and enjoy each day. If I don't, summer will be done and Seth in Kindergarten before I know it.

So, since time won't slow down, I think I will just have to.

Emma starts kindergarten this year too. We did our clothes back to school shopping yesterday. I panic a little more as it is getting closer, and here I thought I was ready.

Sounds like you've got your hands full! I'm sure you wouldn't have it any other way. :)
