Great week. Wayfinders had a 6-hour adventure day on Tuesday, we bought a new car, B & W went on their annual Fishing Derby camping trip with the scouts, and Sunday was my sister's baby shower.
Our new car is a 2012 Mazda5. It's a "micro-minivan" that seats 6 and has a perfect amount of storage room. It's silver and the interior is black. I love it so much. I'm so glad to get rid of the Nissan we had - the tires were bald, the transmission was days away from breaking down altogether, and the whole inside and outside was a mess. Now I can drive without worry in something I think is really beautiful. It's smaller, better gas mileage, and one of the highest rated for safety. Yay!
The Fishing Derby this year was a lot of fun. Now that W is a webelo scout, he got to sleep in the lean-to with his friends the first night and in a tent the second night. No more staying in the cabin with dad. He loved it. The lean-to was scary, since it had cracks and it looked like it was going to rain. He was with 3 of his best friends, so that made things a lot better. The tent was waterproof so he was happier the 2nd night. After the very long day of fishing and running around, the boys were out cold pretty quickly. I was worried about it, but B said he was only nervous for about a minute. I'm so proud of my son.
My sister's baby shower was in this beautiful yacht club right on the water. I bit the bullet and actually got a haircut and manicure. I planned on getting the pedicure, but chickened out. I can't stand people touching my feet. LOL. I'll get over it. Pedis really make your toes look awesome. A mani-pedi and eyebrow waxing costs only about $25. I think I can make time for these. Anyway, my sis got just about everything she registered for. The baby girl is due in about 6 weeks. This baby has enough clothes to last til winter. I will be spoiling this kid rotten. I love little girls.
This week J has finals. She's spending any free time in the school library studying. K is still gearing up for prom and graduation. And I am sooo ready for summer to be here.
