Another busy week

We went to Manhattan this past Friday for a quick trip. Bryn had a slumber party to go to there and I stayed with a friend while Grant and Aaron went to my in-laws house. Aaron managed to con his mom out of her KU/K-State football ticket by leaving Grant with her. It was a great game (Bryn and I listened on the radio on the way home). Aaron came home with practically no voice but I gathered form his sign language that he had fun!

Some friends came over on Saturday night and Bryn had a great time playing with her friend Riley. She doesn't get to see him as much since they moved so it was a treat to have him here! And I loved catching up with his mom - it was a fun time.

I had bookclub on Sunday and really enjoyed getting together with my crazy liberal friends. They call me their "token conservative" and even when the talks degenerate into religion and politics we all manage to come away from it still liking each other! We have been meeting for 5 years...it hardly seems possible that it has been that long.

With Bunco on Monday night, Girl Scouts and Friends of the Library on Tuesday night and a trip over to the church to get stuff packed up for a big church missions activity on Saturday, I am looking forward to being home tonight. I am sure Aaron is excited, too - he gets a lot of kid bedtime duty with my crazy schedule being what it is!

Bryn started some of her supplemental school classes at the elementary school this week and she enjoyed it. She was concerned about having to ride over there in the van with her least favorite classmate, but she says he is far better behaved there than he is at school. She worried and worried about it...gee, I wonder where she got that trait?

An occupational therapist came to check Grant out and concluded that he seems just fine and she was not worried about his delay in walking. So now that it has been confirmed that he is just being him and doing things in his own sweet time we will just wait and see what happens. I keep thinking it will be any day - he has taken some steps on his own - but it could be another couple months, too, I suppose. We'll see. I am totally over being worried about it so someone else will have to let me know if it is an issue!

Tomorrow night some girlfriends are coming over to scrapbook...the number keeps growing so there should be a houseful and lots of food, wine and laughs. I am looking forward to it!

So just another crazy, busy week around here. Although it can sometimes be overwhelming, I love my life and am so thankful to have wonderful family and friends to share it with!

My goodness Kara, I'm exhausted after reading just half of what you have been doing and have planned! So much going on, but so many good things and so diverse - book club, scrapbooking, football, family, friends. Also glad that Grant is doing well - he will be walking and running in no time, I'm sure :)

Take care and catch your breath in there somewhere, too, okay?! :)

You're the "token conservative." I love it!
Had a Facebook friend ask my opinion on a marketing thing he was doing (He's a former neighbor - we grew up together.) and I gave the disclaimer that I am ultra conservative, so he could take my thoughts with that in mind. He said that's exactly why he asked me - needed that "token conservative" perspective. LOL

As for the scrapbooking, don't suppose you have room for one more? I haven't touched my stuff in five months. *sigh*

I want to go crawl into bed now...I'm exhausted just reading about that week!

Poor Bryn! I can seriously relate...I have a whole brood of obsessive worriers...and it does break my heart when they get in that state. (But they didn't get that from me! *said with finger crossed behind back*)

And Kara, where do you find all us whack-o liberals anyway?!! :D Your book club friends are SO LUCKY to have you!!! I know I am!!!

Can I cite you the next time someone accuses me of only hanging out with other whack-o liberals (hi, Debi!)? Sounds like a busy week, but a fun and fulfilling one. I hope Bryn continues to enjoy the new activities at the elementary school. And keep in mind that when Grant does start to motor freely, you may miss these days when he's not as free range.
