So glad this week is over. It's been busy. It was VBS at church and I taught the Kindergartners. Everyday except Wednesday, that is. Why? Because this kid:

(picture taken Sunday 6/15)

has ringworm. Sounds gross, right? I discovered it on her leg Tuesday after lunch and we saw the pediatrician that afternoon. I stayed home with her Wednesday and then we had sitters yesterday and today. Thankfully, it doesn't bother her. It's not anything serious. Just initially very contagious. With a gross-sounding name. (Did ya know Lotrimin, as in the cure for athlete's foot, cures ringworm?) She's now the proud wearer of a Dora or My Little Pony band aid, though, for the next 4 weeks.

Back to VBS, it was awesome. This was my first time teaching and I loved it. Loved seeing the kids sing and laugh and learn about Jesus. They were so smart and knew so much already. This might sound a bit cheesy, but it just made my heart happy. When we'd be singing and I'd hear them sing about loving Jesus and see their eyes all lit up and doing the hand motions to the songs with grins on their faces I just felt joy. Pure joy as I sang along and acted out the songs with them. I was sad Emma only got to attend two days at mini-VBS, due to the whole ringworm thing, but we'll be back next year. I already decided I'm doing teaching again.

Michael's summer finally begins this coming week now that basketball and baseball camps are over. We can now hit the pool for some swimming and use our new zoo membership we got as a Christmas gift from my sister.

Our friends/neighbors just had baby #2 - welcome Jack! Marie - Charlie now has some competition when it comes to Mackenzie! :)

It's my birthday tomorrow. 32. For the first time we're not doing the whole party/cake/both-our-families-over thing. My choice. I'm not sure why, but for some reason it's just not a big deal this year. Maybe it's because it feels like it's just here all of a sudden. We were in Virginia, then VBS this week which flew by and all of a sudden it's my birthday. We've got a graduation party tomorrow for one of our babysitters, Maggie. We're going to go look for carpet for out basement. (So very excited about that!!!!) And that's about it. And I'm good with it. We'll see my family Thursday when we celebrate my niece's birthday and I'm sure we'll see Michael's soon, too. Maybe we'll just have mini-celebrations. :)

Have a good weekend!
