I'm so conflicted. On the one hand, I really miss blogging. On the other hand, I still feel like I shouldn't be sharing so much. Password protecting the blog was one option, but weebly now charges for that, so that's out.
I guess my options are starting a new password protected blog elsewhere or moving the whole Crumb Blog to another server (I don't even know what I'm saying) or, I'm not sure what other options I have. I would also very much like to print my blog as a book and weebly does not yet have that function so it's looking more and more like moving away from weebly is the best option. For now, blogging a little more quietly will be the way I choose to go. No more blog Facebook page, no more blog entries going out to a hundred subscribers. Just people I actually I know on that subscriber list, no strangers allowed.
But I don't have too much time to dwell on this these days because school is out and the kids are in (the house). Camp Mommy officially started on Monday but here's what's been going on since school ended.
We went downtown and parked for 50 cents an hour. I know! That wasn't the whole activity but it was enough for me! We actually went to the Main Library, the nicest library I have seen in my entire life. Except for the somewhat sketchy crowd that hangs out there, but it's downtown, I can't really expect better.
We arrived just in time for the Fizz, Boom, Bang! Science show, the pre-kickoff to the Summer Reading Program at the library. The show was, according to my kids, really very boring and the hoops one must jump through to win a reading prize at the end of the summer seem excessive but we did have lunch at the library, outside, in the atrium, which was quite beautiful and you know, it was lunch and my kids love (love) lunch.
They also pretended to read books in the children's section so I would take their picture.
Father's Day was somewhat uneventful but we like it that way. We swam, but not in our own pool but that's mostly because our house didnt come with one.
We did take a trip to Lowes so we could get all this:
My friends, what you see here are your Pinterest dollars at work:
Is it a car wash? A sprinkler? Who cares! The kids have been playing for hours.
Josh and the kids did an amazing job. I wasn't even home; I was at the dollar store getting pool noodles and sponges because what's a car wash without sponges and you know, styrafoam noodles?
Very wet fun was had by all.
Yesterday we tried a kiddie yoga class for the first time.
We arrived and the eye-rolling started from the two older ones. They didn't want to choose a mat, they didn't want to rub the peace stones or do anything bendy. Until they did. And all of a sudden, they loved it. They laughed, they smiled, they were a tree. And then, at the end, they lay so still, it was a wonder to behold. I've never seen my children, especially my number 2 child, be still.
We got back to the car and I asked who felt relaxed, who felt calm. They showed me small smiles, almost sheepish. They were so chilled out and because of that chillness, a whole conversation about trying something new and giving things a chance ensued. Maybe I need to give things a chance too, like blogging again. Maybe because we have come a decision about the issues I mentioned a month ago, and I feel a hundred times calmer and have placed it all in Hashem's hands, maybe I can try blogging again. Just more quietly.
I'll let you know.
Are you a Mom?
Of course you are,
your shirt is dirty :)
