Here I am, Here I am!

Yikes we have been busy! Summer is supposed to be relaxing and lazy!
I always think that come June; I can't wait for slower summer days with no school.

But it is always crazy busy! Off we go here, off we go there, here, there, here, there, and here again. LOL

We do have a few more trips planned, but nothing too big. So I think I can say: it is finally going to be a lazy week! woohoo!

I have blueberries to pick and freeze, gardens to weed and water, a bathroom that needs some serious scrubbing and I hope to scrapbook!!!

I have been cleaning out my room and coming across so much stuff that I 'had' plans for, but it is just sitting, taking up space, waiting. So I hope to get to some of that stuff. And some of it I am just going to get rid of. Seriously I could have all my friends over, they could create an entire scrapbook album EACH and I would STILL have tons of stuff left over. OIY!

And with CHA Summer 2010 products just around the corner I need to use up so I don't feel guilty buying more! lol

Check out the Scrapbooking Fanatics blog for some great links to new products!

Last week we spent the week up at Camp Kawkawa. It is such a great place. We always have so much fun, feel stronger in our faith, come home very sun tanned and TIRED! There are activities, games, and things to do from 8:30am - breakfast, till 11pm when my head finally hits the pillow. And sometimes it is even later; especially if you sit up talking with your teenager! - which is just awesome!!

Here we are at the end saying goodbye to one of our favourite staffers up there 'KEYS', his camp name, cause he plays piano. (when I first heard his name years ago, I thought he had a collection of keys, lol) And one of my sons favourite workers up there; Dip ;)
Back row;
my husband Chris, my daughter Kimmee, me, Keys, Dip

Inspired Scrapbooker

Check out the Inspired Scrapbooker for a great challenge!

I have been so busy lately I have not been able to find time to do much of anything!
(okay, yes I was finding 5 mins here and there to play that danged Fronterville - gosh is that thing addictive!! It is Kari's fault!!)

Anyways, sometime this week I hope to have up a picture and details of my chore list; as requested.

I have had a few parents copy this to some extent and implement it in their homes. I have even had parents take pictures of it.

So far I have only heard great things from parents; the kids not soo much. lol

It is a great system that works in our home and maybe will work in yours, or you can take what you like and leave what you don't. But feel free to copy it or just take some ideas. - that is when I get it posted! lol

Do your kids do chores? Do they get an allowance? Did you do chores as a kid and get an allowance?

Till tomorrow
