Wow, it’s been 4 days since I had to have that talk with Sissy! It’s been very hectic here and I just can not believe how full our summer has become. I’m so glad that I took time out to plan fun things for me and the kids to do. We are going to the library twice a week for their summer reading program; Monday night’s are free performances and Thursday afternoon’s are crafts, games, and snacks. Just these two days alone are great fun for the kids and best of all they’re free! I was truly amazed at all the free things our town has to offer to keep the kids occupied. If you haven’t checked out the local happening your town you might want to see what they have to offer.
This past weekend was filled with more fun stuff that was free. Our town had their annual Cranberry Blossom festival and I packed in as much as I could with buddy since the other kids were gone. On Thursday night they hosted Cinema Under the Stars; they put up a big screen, closed off the street, and we watched several old Looney Tune cartoons. It felt so nice and had a really cool “small town” atmosphere. The historical society had an old fashioned ice cream social with free ice cream and tours through the mansion on Saturday. Some of the other weekend activities included a bike ride, a kid’s fishing contest, and finally a parade. Everything was a lot of fun and the two of us had a blast with all the stuff we did.
I also managed to squeeze in some time to finally finish editing and updating my Expert Business Results website; stop by and take a look. I love the face lift and I even managed to get it ranked onto the first page of the search engines for my keywords. Just last week it was so far at the bottom that it wasn’t worth looking for; I felt extremely excited to see all my hard work bring such awesome results so quickly.
This week is going to be busy once again; of course it started with our Monday night library program earlier this evening. The theater has started their summer children’s movies again; we can go watch a movie and get popcorn for $2.50. Of course the movies are ones that have already been released but my kids don’t always get to see these movies so for them it’s awesome to go to the theater. The movies are shown on Wednesday and Thursday. Lunch On The River is another event that takes place every Thursday; lunch can be purchased from several different food vendors or you can pack your own. They always have free live entertainment. The kids can’t miss their Thursday Library Activity day after lunch.
With all that activity for the week you’d think that I’d be too exhausted to do anything else but the highlight of the week doesn’t come until Saturday. We were able to get free tickets to Riverview Park and Waterworld in Wisconsin Dells; Saturday is also sissy’s birthday. She’s planning to have a friend sleep over on Friday night and her parent’s are picking her and sissy up on Saturday morning. I recruited several families to go to the “Dells” with us as these tickets were being given away by the radio station to anyone who requested them. So we have at least three families going together! Lastly is sissy’s birthday party on Sunday.
This is going to be a busy week; I will pop in as often as possible and update all the adventurous details of the week. I’m already looking forward to next week when hopefully it will be a bit more relaxing. (maybe!)
