Ketchup Blog

It has been a busy few days! And that hasn't stopped yet, so there will not be pictures until I have more time. (Right now I am blogging and browning hamburger for dinner. Multi-tasking.) We have all the children home from school for the summer! Yeah and Finally! Jacob started his job at the Webelos scout camp this morning. I am so happy to be driving him up the canyon every morning, because I can hear the water and see the trees and be happy for a few minutes before I return to the city. (Check in later this summer to see a mom tired of making the drive... we are fickle creatures.) We bought the summer toy--a trampoline. I am pretty excited, as it has taken me a long time to convince Nathan that it will be okay. So, NO BODY CAN BUST THEIR BODIES ON THIS TRAMPOLINE!!!! (Just saying.) But it is fun to have a toy with such wide age appeal. I jumped on it last night and realized that is probably the first time since I was about 16. Many things have changed since then! :)

News flash: Seth bit his tongue while jumping as I type the last bit. Popsicles have been applied. Full recovery expected.

Anyway, now I have to go, the washer is beeping for attention and my house is so yucky that I don't want to talk about it. And, yes, I will have the Relief Society reports in soon too... run, run, run!

I am so glad the craziness of summer has finally hit your household. I am glad Jake started his job and am hoping it will be a GREAT experience for him. Yeah!! about the trampoline. I don't think you will ever regret the purchase. I know what you mean about moms jumping and things having changed.:)Too bad Laiklie doesn't get that - she thinks I always need to jump with her.

I am so proud of you for getting a trampoline. it does work for all age groups. i agree, no injuries!!!!! just invest in some depends, you have had 6 too many children to still have a normal bladder.
all our blogs will start out the summer with cheerfulness about our kids being home, and switch to can't wait for them to get back in school!

I may come over and jump on your tramp! That would be quite a sight! LOL

Thanks for being you. ;)
