Raise your hand if summer leaves you tuckered out sometimes. That's exactly how we are all feeling today. Zoe came home late Saturday night from a four day trip down to New York State with the other youth from our church. She had a blast, but man, was she tired today. I think yesterday she was still running off her vacation high. And the boys? Well, since Zoe was gone, they spent the week having friends over, swimming, and being their typical rambunctious selves, which exhausted this six month pregnant mama. So, when the morning sunshine came streaming through our windows this morning, none of us were ready to greet her with open arms. Instead, we lounged around until noon in our jammies, nibbled on snacks and Freezies the entire day, watched the movie Up, and then went for a quick swim. That's all we did, and no one complained. Sometimes you just need to take a breather and today seemed to be the perfect day to do just that.
With a long, lazy day under our belts, we are now ready to take on the next two fun-filled weeks with gusto. Last night, two of our favourite coaches from the British Challenger Soccer Camp arrived "home" and will be staying with us for another week since there was only one billet from Quispamsis, where the camp is running this week, to take a coach in for the week. Your loss is our gain! The kids were ecstatic to see Ben and David again last night, and it did not take them long to crank out some Mario Kart action! It was so much fun!
Also, to add to all the excitement around here, this Wednesday Mr. Level-Headed's sister, Christina, is flying in from Salt Lake City with her husband and three girls. Can you say TWO WEEK PARTY!
Man, I love summer!

Oh, and our two favourite critters have come for a visit as well. This summer just gets better and better.
