Countdown to our Holiday

We are counting down to our holiday in England now. I can barely stand the wait and am like a cat on a hot tin roof. Hurry up and come holiday!!!
As usual we were super busy this week: I've had 4 boys to look after as well as going to work, we have a house guest living with us for 6 months who moved in last Sunday (she's from Ireland and I'll post about her later), we had friends from California in for a visit, and I have just a few days now to get ready for the next academic year because when we get home from England we'll hit the ground running.

New haircut for my hols!

Jack's Sunburn

Last Thursday Jack joined a family we know from school for a day out at the local water park. He went without sunscreen for 8 hours on a blinding hot, sunny day.  I did send him with factor 50 sun cream and strict instructions but he obviously ignored me. The mum who took him was mortified when she dropped him off but I'm really surprised she didn't put it on him all day. Surely I'm not unique that I smother my kids (and anyone else's kid in range) with factor 50 every hour?

Thursday night we soaked him in natural aloe

Jack's Zip-line Video

This should have been part of my post about Jack's birthday but it didn't happen that way. Sometimes I'm too buried in stuff to see to everything. So anyway, this will probably go down in history as one of his favorite birthdays ever. It was cheap-ish, he loved it, I got to sit down. What's not to love.
