So much to do

It has been another crazy whirlwind week here. We survived the recital/campout/birthday party madness that was last weekend. This past week, we've had the First Grade Rumpus in the Rainforest (that's my jaguar singing her heart out), Third Grade Camp Learned-a-lot, and some teeball games.

My parents are driving here as I type this--they're going to watch the kids for a WEEK while Rob and I take a little trip. We've got our passports, and we're going to CANADA, baby! Woo! (We had to go somewhere out of the States since we just got these things renewed, and even with all the teaser rates advertised out there, Europe was still too expensive; so Canada it is.)

We will also be stopping at Cooperstown, Lake Placid, Ben & Jerry's, Cabot Creamery, and the rest of Vermont--we'll have to find a maple syrup place to complete the Vermont Trifecta (ice cream, cheese, syrup). With all these crazy travel plans in place, it's a safe bet that this blog will be quiet for the next seven to ten days.

The house is a mess and I haven't done the first bit of packing. All I can think about is sewing and possibly taking a nap. And yet, this weekend includes two more teeball games and two more birthday parties! Clearly, I'm going to be busy up until we leave.

Everyone say a quick prayer for my parents, who will be taking on the Evans kids for seven days. When we return, it will be summer vacation!

Have a great trip! And I am so jealous - a whole week with no kids and being able to sleep in.

Have a wonderful time miss Meg and enjoy Canada (have some Ben & Jerry's for me, ok?)
