the weekly recap {July 20-26 church camp and Museum of Native American History}

C Girl has had so many big things happening this year.
We allowed her to attend church camp this year! This is the first year that she was of age to go and she was so excited!
I was nervous because it was my first time sending her to an overnight camp.
She was there from Monday morning until Friday morning.
 She had friends from church going and a friend from school!
They had theme nights every night and she had fun dressing up!
My sweet friend, Ginger was her counselor for the week and sent me a lot of pictures!
She had such a great time at camp!
I was so happy to see her on Friday!!!
B Boy was swimming with a friend so I got to pick her up and talk without interruption!
I think she only brushed her teeth a couple of times that week but, hey she'll get better with that, right?!
Thank you for taking care of my girlie Ginger!
I tried doing a few fun things with B Boy while she was at camp.
He had a couple of playdates, lots of screen time (oops) and we visited the Museum of Native American History.
It is such a neat little gem in our town. And it's free!
We took him to one of his favorite restaurants- Lin's Garden.
(He loves chicken on a stick.)
C Girl yelled at me to come to the shower when she was in there one day. 
She HAD to show me this bubble from her body wash!!!
I started getting an awful headache that Friday night. By Saturday, it was the worst headache I have ever had in my life. My back hurt and I had fever. I tried going to convenient care, but they referred me to the ER. They ran all kinds of tests, but I declined the spinal tap due to the risk of infection. I was never diagnosed, but I 'm pretty sure I had a mild case of meningitis. They put me on a round of antibiotics. I pretty much spent the entire month of July on antibiotics. I'm mostly feeling better now, but I have to focus on getting my hemoglobin number up and working on my immune system. I will be seeing an immunologist soon.

the weekly recap {July 13-19 Amazeum & summer fun}

We bought a family membership for the children's museum that opened in our town on July 15th.
It is called the Scott Family Amazeum.
We were able to take advantage of preview day before it opened.
The kids were super excited!
I loved these stairs.
This place is incredible! We only had an hour and a half to explore and we also did an experiment in the Hershey's Lab, so we only got to check about half of it.
The kids LOVED "climbing in the trees"
There are so many opportunities to create, explore and imagine.
Tim and the kids were happy to partake in a little chocolate fun.
(a little thing about me you might not know - I don't eat chocolate! gasp!)
We will definitely be back many times to see more and enjoy this fun new place!
Our windows really needed a good cleaning, so we put the kids to work. I have been doing that a lot this summer. They have been taking on a lot of new chores and doing great at it!
C Girl even made waffles for us one morning entirely by herself!
The kids having some fun in the sprinkler. It has been SO hot here lately!
I've been trying to continue doing fun things with the kids even though I have been sick so much. I took them to the city pool one day and they had the best time. I got to sit and talk with a friend, so I had a really fun time too!
I also had to drag the kiddos to the doctor a couple of times that week.
I was diagnosed with early walking pneumonia. Thankfully they prescribed some good medication! 
I was so tired of coughing!
