After Micah got out of school last week (his last day as a preschooler - sniff sniff), we celebrated by going to McDonald's with some kids from his class.

Wanting to start the summer off right, the very next day we had a playdate with my 2 really good, precious friends and their kids. These girls are so dear to my heart; we met at MOPS and now we try to get together every week. As we shared about what God had been speaking to us about lately, it was amazing how God had spoken the same thing to each of our hearts that very week (without us even talking). I love it when that happens! Between the 3 of us we have 7 kids- ages 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, and 7 months!
On Saturday we went to the City Yard open house, where kids can ride on tractors, city buses, school buses, firetrucks, police cars, and more. They give out TONS of free stuff, and there was a classic car show too. So much fun!
That night I had my gold party - have you heard about these? They are awesome! You just invite a bunch of people to your house to sell their old gold jewelry, they get paid on the spot, and you make 10% of all the profits. I had a very small party and still made $110. If you live in Southern Cal. and want to book a party, let me know and I will hook you up with Joe, my "gold guy".
On Sunday we had church and then rested - Sunday afternoon naps are my favorite.

Monday was "Mom's Day Out" for me and my BFF Heather at Disneyland. Our passes are expiring soon, so we went by ourselves with no kids for a whole day - it was awesome! We went to California Adventure and Disneyland, went on roller coasters, saw World of Color, got soaked on the water ride, and stayed until 11pm. We are total suckers for roller-coasters and always know right where the cameras are on every one :) We both have awesome husbands who watched the kids for us; God has blessed us!!
Today I woke up and thought "Oh no! It's summer! What am I going to do with the kids today?!" and I saw another friend on Facebook posted the same thing. I was so tired today from Disneyland yesterday that we took it easy and went to the park. The rest of this week is pretty low-key too, but I realize that I pretty much need a plan for every day. By 10am, the boys are climbing up the walls and need to get out of the house. Do you find that you need a plan for your open days, or do you prefer no plans?
