I cannot believe how quickly this year seems to be going. It seems like only yesterday that it was Christmas. I suppose this is good and bad. It is nice to be back to summer and warm weather but everything seems to happen so quickly that I don't feel on top of it all.
June is almost here and that means the thing that I both dread and love about my job....
Vacation. Bible. School.
On the one hand, the week itself is fun and dynamic. I can't help but feel in awe that I pulled it off and how much fun kids seem to have at our VBS.
On the other...the weeks leading up to it can be hell. And since our anniversery always seems to fall on the week before VBS I feel guilty that I spend that whole week at work rather than cuddling with my husband. There is so much to be done and so many people that need to step forward in order for it to work.
So if my thoughts become more random than normal in the next weeks it is because VBS is weighing heavy on my mind. But, i'm cautiously optimistic about this year. I still need plenty of help but some people are stepping forward to work and I'm feeling *slightly* more on top of things than normal. But we'll see. Tomorrow I could feel panicked again, so who knows.
Last weekend was a lot of fun. Chris and I went to the wedding of our good friends. In fact Chris was a groomsman and sang a beautiful Ave Maria as well. We like to take credit for this couple being together, as they met at our couple's shower. The bride was a good friend of Chris' from HS, the groom was a good friend of Chris' from college (and in our wedding). They met at the shower and despite the fact they both had other people they had been seeing they eventually ended up together. So it was pretty special to see them get married last weekend. (pictures later)
We didn't stay in a hotel this weekend though, instead we stayed at Chris' parents house. His parents were out of town and we stayed with his younger sister (age 16). The reality of it was we were all babysitting each other. Emily was our DD for the wedding (good thing too!) and we had a great weekend hanging out together.
One of the best parts was Chris grilled for us twice, a luxury we miss since our apartment building has strict rules against grills. It was a good memorial day weekend. Even the speaker at the park ceremony in small town MN was not overly offensive to me. Granted he focused more on WWII but that is probably for the best.
It was a LONG weekend though and I'm looking forward to a quiet weekend this week. VBS is looming so I'm going to take some time to relax before the rush comes. In fact, I think i'm going to go to the zoo tomorrow, so I'll post happy zoo pictures tomorrow!
