TIDBIT TUESDAY!

We're having another busy week! Well, my three little ones are! They are at another VBS (Vacation Bible School), and this one is really close to our home. What I love the most about it is that I just drop them off and pick them up three hours later!

I've been trying to think of things I could do with my older kids during that time, but with only three hours, we're pretty limited. But, since my oldest son was at his friends yesterday, I took Miranda to the movies to watch the first showing of Salt (Angelina Jolie). We LOVE action movies, and this was "okay." If your kids can handle fighting and blood, then they will like this!

Tomorrow, my daughter and I are planning on clearing up our entire homeschool area. All their new material will be here in a week, and I want all the old stuff outta here! She's excited to do this, and so am I!! I'm glad she's willing to help!

We had a nice surprise yesterday too. My best friends sons came by to visit. They are such great boys, and my kids love them! Just totally respectful and responsible kids! They are the two older boys in the picture! I've known their mom since we were 12 years old (which was 29 years ago)!

And I'm excited for the next couple of weeks!

My kids have one more "fun week" at our church, and my oldest daughter is going to Jr. High camp. I just want to do as much as we can before school starts! It's coming up quick!

We love VBS. How nice to have time with just the older ones. Good luck with the cleaning project. I enjoy organizing...if you need help just call me :)
Cute picture...everyone is smiling at the camera. Great job.

I can't believe that summer's almost over and that school will be starting soon. The kids are having so much fun...

Great shot of the kids! It's not easy to get everyone looking at the camera, let alone smiling, too. :)

Yes, summer is passing by quickly. However, I refuse to say that it is over yet! Sounds like you have a productive day planned. Good luck with all of your organizing. :) Lana

I want to go see Salt. We saw Inception the other day.

It's amazing to me that summer is almost over. Although, I am hoping for a late summer, as it was cold for so long this year.

I need to clean out my supplies too. I can't even open the closet door. Need to prepare for some younger kid activities, since it will just be me and the two year old this year.

Yeah for VBS! My kids are all grown up now, but we all loved VBS.

Looks like a beautiful group of young people here!

what a fun week already! awesome! Salt? I hadn't planned on seeing it, and now? Not liking blood, I may not!
Have a great Tuesday!

Our church did VBS a few weeks ago, unfortunately it is not around the corner but 30 minutes away so it makes for a long week for us but we still do it because it is so much fun for the kids.

Oh school is approaching so fast....

Brittany said...

Sounds like so much fun! I just realized the summer is almost over! I'd be sad if I didn't love fall so much! :))

I was home schooled when I was younger! I didn't go to public school until 6th grade! I loved it! I've gone back and fourth on whether or not i'll send aidyn to school or home school him! Guess we'll see!

I do awesome your child loves to clean. I really love this picture.

VBS is great, we will be doing one in August. Our elementary school system has Bible Club on Tuesday all year long, isn't that awesome for a public school?
The kids look great in the picture, I have five piles here I need to organize and 284 pictures from Disney to crop and put in a scrapbook....the whole idea makes me tired....goood luck with your organizing. Pretty soon the kids will be going back..well not for another month but it will go by quickly.

Ugh! School starts next week here in North Georgia. Just too early!

You sure are a bunch of movers and shakers...but "busy" at your house always seems to equal FUN! :)

How fun for VBS and a great way to spend time with Miranda! I know what you mean about school coming up quick...we only have a week and a half until we start :P
