The All Night Party at Bountiful High for the graduates is such a good thing. I'm always amazed at all of the fun things that are planned, and all of the food. It was awesome to be chaperoning til 4 in the morning. When I left, the party was still going strong. I couldn't believe it. The activities were great-- Sound system and a DJ, blow up slides and obstacle course, tramp basketball, board games, video games, give aways, a money grab booth, love sacs, massages, manicures, hair cuts, a climbing wall......WOW-- so much to do. So much food to eat.
There was Chipotle, Costa Vida, Chiles, Marie Callendar Pies, Pizza, a Chocolate fountain, baked goods, candy, snow cones, ice cream, popcorn, hamburgers and hot dogs, then at 5 the breakfast food was brought out...bagels and doughnuts, and muffins and juice, oh my....sooooo much food was left over. It really is an embarrassment in abundance.
It's great to have a place for all of the seniors to gather and be together and enjoy their shared school memories.
Laila is gone with a neighbor family to Bear Lake til Thursday. It's so weird not having little sis around. Usually when I'm not here, she's not here. But I'm here...and it's really odd. I slept in til 9 and didn't have her yell, "MOM!" at the top of her lungs, at 7:30 am., or snuggle in bed with me.
Summer is here and so is RAIN....we have had a ton of rain in June.... My hopes to swim every day this week, are slowly fading. Even with all the rain, I 've managed to kill one of my flower pots already.....dry, dry, dry.
What are my boys going to do to make money this summer? I have some ideas with dump runs for people and car detailing. We are brainstorming today.
I love reading missionary letters. I have some nephews, cousins, and friends out right now that I get to read their shared letter each week. LOVE IT. I feel of the spirit and the hardship and the growth and I'm amazed. I'm really looking forward to Truman going on a mission next spring.
My kitchen sink faucet is cracked and water is running down and ruining/rotting all under the sink. I just found it. NOT HAPPY. Wayne said, " you know what this means?"....before he gave his "time to get a new faucet" answer, I jumped in with , "yep, time to get a new kitchen!"
I guess it's just a faucet for now.
I can dream can't I?
Well that's what's rattling around in my brain this Tuesday.
