Misc. posting

This rainbow was even prettier in person....
I was helping the boys look for fossils...
Our car next to one of the steep canyon walls. As we drove the path got narrower and narrower...

I really don't have much to say today, but thought I'd just update my blog again. My parents were here last week and I really enjoyed spending time with them. We didn't do much of anything, but spent a lot of time just playing board games and relaxing. We had planned to go to Yuma, Arizona for a visit, but didn't make it. Mom got food poisoning, and a couple days later dad came down with a 24 hour flu bug. So out of 5 days, two were not much fun. And all but one day it rained. The one day it didn't rain we went to watch Peter play rugby, which was fun...we all came home with a sunburn though!!! But even with all the bad stuff it was nice to have my parents around.

My sister asked for some more pics, so thought I'd add a couple of those too. Hope everyone is doing well.

busy family

Well, the title of my blog is busy kids, but I think maybe I should have titled it busy family. Seems like we are all involved in activities that we enjoy, but that use a lot of our time.
Liam is probably the least affected of us and even his "schedule" could be considered full for a 5 year old. He attends preschool 3 times a week and on the other two days he has speech therapy. Friday he plays soccer which he absolutely loves!!! He has scored a goal in both of the games his has played so far. This is only his second time playing, but he really seems to understand the point of the game.
Peter is our busy boy. On Mondays he has cub scout meetings, Tuesday he has rugby practice, Wednesday is CCD day, Thursday is rugby again, and Saturday he has a rugby game.
Hubby is busy being a den leader for the cub scouts as well as the cubmaster for the entire pack. He is also involved in church choir. And he works full time as an engineer.
As for me...well I am not only the taxi driver for both Liam and Peter's activities, but also the chef, maid, and nanny. On top of these activities I am also on the Board of Directors for Poway Pop Warner Football. Although football is only from August through November the board meets year round. Right now we are gearing up for signups which start in March. And just to keep life interesting I volunteered to chair a committee to organize the cub scout blue and gold banquet. I am thankful that I have a great committee to help me organize this event.
So I guess maybe all of these activities are why I don't blog as often as I would like to. By the end of my day I just want to veg out, I don't have the brain capacity left to think of blog entries. I miss my friends and family and I will keep trying to blog for you!!!
