Home sweet home

It's so good to be home. I missed my family & they missed me. We've had a nice relaxing weekend. It was good to visit some of my friends in ATL.

G's feet are still giving him trouble. He has been sleeping quite a bit.
Colin turns flips all day long. He's reading really well & reading what I type.
It's funny. He wants me to type Colin fights monsters all day & night in the
den; with a sword. He's cracking me up; because I typed something different & he knew.

long days

I've had some really long days this week. Starting Sunday w/ my crappy AAirlines flight. I was charged $25.00 to take my other bag then it was lost. I didn't get much sleep because at midnight I'm calling trying to find out if there is an update on my bag. I also need to figure out where I can get some replacement shoes at midnight. Luckily my bag appeared at 5:00 after they approved the authorization to replace my shoes. I couldn't wear the sandals I flew in to work.
The next few days I worked really long hours with the guys. It's so hot in the 90.
I miss my guys.
Colin has kept me amused with his funny sayings. I just called & he's turning flips on his head.
He told me he needs to keep exercising so he will have muscles & the girls will like him. I can't believe a 6 yr old knows about girls liking muscles. I'm not sure where he gets this stuff.
He had animal crackers & chocolate milk as a snack at camp. He told me I need to try it because it's really good. He said Papa can fix anything.

G needs prayers. He's having trouble with his feet & legs. This has been an ongoing problem but last week his leg gave out & he could not walk. He went to the Dr Friday. The Dr says it should be getting better.
Thanks in advance for your prayers.

I had a great birthday. G took me to Macaroni Grill. I got my favorite chicken scallopini. It was the best. He also bought me an ice cream cake. I love ice cream cake.

I'm busy traveling for work. I'm staying in a great lodge; I was fortunate enough to get a suite. I had only unpacked a few of my scrapping supplies from last weekend so it was easy to repack them. It's plenty of room for my scrapping stuff. I scrapped 4 pages last night. I hope to do at least 4 tonight.

G just called for Colin. Colin wants me to come home. He said he's tired of time w/ daddy. He's such a little stinker. I'm not sure what prompted him to say that because I didn't say anything about him spending time w/ daddy. I told him I would be home tomorrow he said OK.

Next week I'll be gone for work again but hopefully I won't have any more work travel this year.

Tennis anyone?

The camp will take Colin to tennis lessons starting today. I hope it works out. There is a 70% chance of rain & it looks gloomy. I hope Colin enjoys tennis. I told him he would play today & he said I don't know how to play. I told him they would teach him. Once upon a time, I loved to play tennis. Then I discovered racquetball. I love racquetball but I haven't played in years.

I had the opportunity to scrapbook this weekend. I finished a mini book for G for Father's Day.
He really loved the book.

He loves camp

Yesterday Colin went bowling. He was so excited. He told me he got a strike & a spare; then he asked me where was his prize. LOL He did the same to Grover. I think they go to a movie today. I'm glad he's liking it. I did find out about another camp the same day he started his current camp. It's a less expensive but I don't know if it has the school work focus. I don't want him to feel like he's in summer school but I do want him to continue learning. I think this camp is worth the extra money. None of it will matter in 5 yrs either way. :)

Colin & I will bring the celebration to him.

Camper Colin

Yesterday he seemed to like bowling. I asked if he liked camp & wanted to go back & he shrugged his shoulders. I think he's warming up to it.
He brought home a book to practice his reading. I wasn't expecting homework in summer camp, but I did tell the director I wanted him to work on his reading skills this summer.
He read several stories to me. His reading has improved; He missed very few words.
I need to video tape him reading. I'm sure I'll want to look at it when he's grown & gone.

I asked him again later last night if he wanted to go to camp tomorrow. He asked "What is daddy doing, is daddy going to be home?" I said it doesn't matter what daddy is doing he jumps up & starts to go where G is napping. I start behind him & say daddy's napping don't wake him. He doesn't hear me because now he's running & giggling because I'm running
trying to catch him.

I quickly gave G that look. You know the listen up & watch my lips look. I'm going to talk
in code so the child doesn't know look. I said tell Colin that you will be busy tomorrow.
You will be in & out, not just sitting around the house. So Colin asked Daddy will you be
home tomorrow, he shook his head no. I felt bad because Colin was standing on the bed
looking down at him. I was standing on the other side looking down. Colin woke him up &
I was asking questions. He looked like a deer in headlights. I would have been grumpy.

Colin & I have been playing chase a lot lately. He thinks he can outrun me. He will be able too soon. He's very fast.

I just got a call from Colin he's on his way to camp & wants to know what they will do today.
Yeah, I'm happy he's excited to go to camp.

Colin had a great time at camp yesterday but said he didn't want to go back.
I asked why. He sd daddy is sick & he needs to stay home & take care of him.

They are going bowling at camp today so I hope he has a good time. Yesterday
he didn't eat the lunch I made, the lunch they made (sandwich) or the lunch my
mom took. At 5 pm, I asked him if he ate lunch and he sd no; opened the lunch my mom
made & started eating it.
Later last night he said he ate the snacks. I told him he couldn't have the snacks if he didn't
eat his lunch. He eats a good breakfast & a big dinner every day. I don't know why he won't
eat lunch. I'm not going to stress. He is eating; so I'll let go a little.

Day Camp

Colin did not want to go to day camp. I went to meet the director Friday & tour the facilities.
I love her & the place. I think Colin will be safe & happy. He will be challenged to learn & to have fun.
G dropped him off this morning he said he was a little shy & clinging to his leg. Awe
I think there will be few kids he knows; If not I'm sure he will make friends quickly.
