Of course, we picked him up today, and Andrew leaves tomorrow to go to Grandma's house for a few days... poor puppy! 3 whole days without his new daddy! I'm sure the kids will help spoil him, though. I'll get some pictures posted of him tomorrow, too. He's a sweetie!
The kids are happy to have some of their friends out of school for the summer, and I'm working on helping plan some fun summer activities. Everything from an 80's themed prom for teens & parents alike, to attending the square dance club in Tomball. I'm hoping MyCokeRewards.com will have the free Schlitterbahn passes again this summer, too. We're DEFINITELY planning on getting some of those. (We've enjoyed those free passes for the past two summers, and are crossing our fingers to get them again).
It's also time to round up the curriculum pieces and book lists for our summer school. We're not taking the summer off - I'm too mean for that
We have a couple of friends with swimming pools, too - so we'll plan a few swim dates and take over hot dogs & stuff to cook out with... and I know the kids have mentioned roller skating at Sk8 Town, and I'm hoping for some bowling coupons from Tomball Bowl or AMF Bowling. Between all of that, it really should be a fun and busy summer (and somewhat cheap is the plan!).
We need to get Trae his drivers license and a job... Jessica would probably like to take Drivers Ed, too - but I'm thinking I might as well let her wait until she's 18. She currently works two days a month, and makes $100 for those two days (clerical work). Trae has a 4 week pet sitting job that will pay $200 total, but is still looking for a "real" job. I'm thinking I might run him into Magnolia & see if any of the vets or pet boarding clinics need someone for feeding, cleaning cages, and walking & playing with the animals. Those things are right up his alley, and he'd definitely enjoy that sort of job.
Well, it's after 10:00, and I'm pretty much rambling while I wait for this movie to finish playing... hope everyone's had a fabulous day! Good night!
