I have a weird thing for laundry detergents. If I happen to use someone else’s detergent while visiting their house, I become obsessed with that scent and end up switching detergent when I get home. A couple of years ago, my parents were using Cheer and I loved it. So we switched to Cheer.
While we were on vacation, my mom brought some Tide with Downey fabric softener that smells like lavender. Now I’m obsessed with that scent and we’ve switched our detergent to this one. I have even been excited about doing laundry! Yummy. (*Not a paid endorsement.)
The Gamecocks are back in Omaha! We went to the Super Regional game against Oklahoma on Sunday night. And then there was a rain delay. And then the rain really came and the whole game was just called off. And then we won the next night. I think a 3-peat would be pretty amazing. Go Gamecocks!
I taught VBS this week. My friend Anna and I taught the 3 year old class. The first day was challenging as we figured it all out and learned how to budget our time to stretch out the activities. But it was so much fun! I already know that I want to do it again next year with the 3 year olds. Our theme this year was “Where in the World…” They learned about countries and we’ve done lots of fun crafts with hot air balloons. And they learned all about God’s love and trusting God. Hudson and Hayes had a lot of fun in their classes, too.
Even though Hayes had a lot of fun in his class, I could tell by Thursday that he really wasn’t feeling well. On Friday I made an appointment for him to see the doctor as soon as we left VBS. Our appointment took over an hour and Hayes ended up having a strep test, which really upset him. On the way home, I got pulled over for speeding. (I was going 32 in a 25.) With my kids in the car I am always really conscious of how fast I’m driving, but yesterday, Hudson and Hayes were both screaming crying because they were so tired after sitting at the doctor for so long. I just was so eager to get them both home and down for naps. And I got pulled over. And then I started crying, too. It was the first time I’d ever cried to a cop. I think he was scared because all three of us were crying. I’m so thankful that he let me off with just a warning. I know God was using him to tell me to slow down and to just take it easy.
Hayes is still feeling really sick. Hudson was just a little under the weather, but he seems better now. I am hoping that by Tuesday Hayes is much better. We’ll be staying home all day until I know he’s back to his normal, happy self.
I ordered some adorable outfits from my friend She She Made. I just love these outfits so much! I can’t wait to put Hudson and Hayes in their matching crab shirts. I was just really excited to get a few new things for Hayes since most of his clothes are hand-me-downs. And Hayes goes through about 3 outfits a day due to excessive drooling. But aren’t these outfits SO cute?
I’ve still been really wrapped up in reading Twilight. I’m almost finished with Eclipse. Bella gets on my nerves and I’m still on Team Edward. I love being able to read on my iPhone Kindle app, but it definitely sucks the life out of my phone.
A few weeks ago I posted about my breast feeding experience. That afternoon I got an email from Rita Rubin from msnbc.com asking me if we could chat about a story she was working on.
The story was posted on msnbc.com last Monday and I think it was very interesting and very informative. And I enjoyed reading so many of the comments there, too.
Rita did a great job telling my story and the only thing that wasn’t quite accurate was my age. I’m not 30 yet! hee hee
I hope you’re all having a great weekend. Happy Father’s Day and Go Gamecocks!
